Current Everyday Makeup Routine

Tuesday, March 27, 2018

I wish I could say I'm one of those gals who wakes up, and is basically ready to head out the door! Unless it's on the weekend where I'm off to get groceries or to the gym, my daily makeup routine includes a little bit of everything (brows, foundation, concealer, powder, mascara, bronzer, blush, a teeeny bit of highlight and of course, lipstick) all within the span of 30 minutes.

Continue reading to see which products I've been wearing a lot lately and absolutely loving!

You know what they say, good makeup starts with great skincare! After I've washed my face and applied my daytime moisturizer (+ a thousand different serums), I begin with sculpting my brows. This is the most important step for me! Even if I skip out on everything else, I have to make sure my brows are on-point.

Once that is out of the way, I can focus on the overall face. These four products have been on constant rotation for me:

In terms of technique, I have a specific brush that I use for each step. While it can all be blended well with a damp beauty sponge, if I'm really focusing on each product + its purpose I like to use different applicators for them. Tweet me if you'd be interested in seeing a demo video!

The next set of products are used to bring colour to my face. I'm a sucker for pretty blush, and c'mon, who doesn't like to have that glow?

  • Blush: Benefit Cosmetics Cheek Parade (2018 edition found here)
  • Highlight: NARS & Man Ray Highlighter, shade "Double Take"


Looking for a quick way to do your eyes? Add highlight to the tear duct area + brow bone, and give your crease depth with some eyeshadow. You can make it match your outfit, do something subtle and smokey or pick from a neutral palette.

This will open up your eyes and immediately give the impression that you put effort into your look! I've shared this trick with a lot of my friends working in the corporate world, and they are so thankful for it.

Lastly, my favourite part, pick your lipstick of the day! I've been wearing the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipsticks non-stop lately, especially the shade "Fighter", but you can pick any lipstick that makes you feel happy and confident. This will totally complete your look.

Hope you found my current everyday makeup routine!
