Hello beautiful! Today I’m going to share with you my daily makeup routine! I’m thinking of doing a series of makeup routines. What do you think about that?
Before I start with my makeup, I prep my skin! I can’t stress this enough, skincare is so important! Starting off with a clean canvas is the key. So, always do a proper cleanse. I love using a face oil – either the Farsali Gold Elixir or the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Oil. I’m so satisfied with what these oils do to my skin. Just amazing. I like to moisturize my face and then go on with primer and start with the eyes. I’m currently using the Fresh Beauty Rose Hydration Moisturizer. Now on to primer.
I start with putting on primer, I have been using the Benefit Professional Primer now. It’s amazing — this primer literally blurs out all my pores and leaves my skin looking and feeling incredibly smooth and soft.
Next up is, foundation! Since it’s summer and it is super hot, I have been using the Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer. Nars Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer is just incredible. It’s perfect for everyday wear and lasts for really long. This product definitely gives you a nice radiant glow, and I really like how you can build the coverage from sheer to more. I love how it gives an amazing radiance to your skin yet making it look natural.
I prefer using a beauty blender and dampening the blender is going you give you a perfectly flawless skin. Honestly, this is so silly but I didn’t know earlier that you’re supposed to dampen the blender before blending on anything. I have known this for a long time now, but when I started using it, I totally didn’t know! Silly, I know.
The next part is my favourite. I literally love baking my face with the Laura Mercier Translucent Powder. The Laura Mercier Translucent Powder is my number one choice for powder. I’m literally in awe of it. The key to the perfect base is setting the foundation with a generous amount of powder. So, I put powder and then wait for it to well – bake! Wait for a minute or two, and then brush off the excess remains powder. In the meantime, I like to do my brows. I usually use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Medium Brown for filling my brows and it looks so defined and the color payoff is incredible.
Now on to contouring. For everyday makeup, I just use a bronzer to contour and I feel like that really does the work. In fact, it looks so amazing. I have been using ABH bronzer in Rich Amber and it’s just the perfect contour tool. I like a bronzed look, so I skip blush sometimes. I have been going to a very bronzy look all summer and I love it.
Summer makeup is all about the perfect shimmer and I like to have a glowing skin! A nice glow to your face can do it all – it helps the skin look radiant and full of life even when you’re lacking sleep or you’re so tired. So, I have been using the Anastasia Beverly Hills x Amrezy highlighter. I’m literally obsessed with these! So, I like putting shimmer on my lids when I don’t have any eyeshadow on – it just gives you more of a natural glow.
Lastly, let’s talk about lipstick! I keep switching up between colors so much. On days when I feel like using a bright color, I go for a red lip color without question. For a red lip color, I have been using the Fenty Beauty Uncensored lipstick and the Nars Starwoman Lip Pigment.
To top it all off, I put mascara and a spray my face with a setting spray. I have been using the Pretty Vulgar Lock It In Makeup Setting Spray. The packaging is super cute, that’s the reason I got it in the first place. It’s so pretty it’s never coming off my vanity. I wish the atomizer was not just part of the cap and it actually sprayed it with that. The spray has almost no smell and it does its work pretty well. It makes my makeup last all day, and that’s what you really want, right?
Basically, that’s my daily makeup routine, and this gives me a soft, dewy look and I’m really happy with the products I’m right now.
