My Everyday Makeup Faves!

My Everyday Makeup Faves!
I get countless questions about my skincare routine and the makeup I use on my face. (Skincare routine post coming up next!) I absolutely LOVE makeup but I also like to keep it simple when it comes to my everyday look.

Primer
I absolutely love the "Honey Dew Me Up" primer from NYX. It's made from honey which is a natural emollient and healer, gold flakes which increase the radiance of the skin and collagen for smoother, firmer skin. I apply this directly after my moisturizer and I apply my foundation about 20 seconds after.

Concealer 
I had to see what all the fuss was about with the LA Girls Pro Conceal. I must admit, I am not using any other concealer again. This is the best I've used and it helps that it is literally dirt cheap. It blends seamlessly with a beauty blender or makeup wedge however, you still want to set it with a powder after for a little added insurance.

Foundation
When it comes to foundation, I am a LOYAL bareMinerals girl. Not only do you get flawless coverage, it's excellent for the health of your skin. My shade in the READY SPF20 Foundation is "Golden Tan". I apply it with a large kabuki brush, "swirling, tapping, and buffing" a few times until I get my desired coverage which is usually light to medium. I prefer the solid formula because it has a natural finish and it's compact and easy for traveling!

Bronzer/Blush
After my foundation, I like to bring dimension back into my face using a bronzer. I use the READY Bronzer in "The Deep End". It's the perfect brown/bronze so I'm able to have a tan all year round! For blush, I use a variety of colors but for everyday, I stick to a peach or light pink.

Highlighter
I loooooooove to glow hunty! I must have my highlighter everytime I put on my makeup. I use the bareMinerals "Flawless Radiance" to achieve a golden glow.

Eyes
I don't wear a lot of eyeshadow anymore. I said above that I like to keep things simple, so my eyes usually have only mascara and smudge of black eyeliner for a smoky "just woke up" look. My absolute favorite mascara is "They're Real" by Benefit. I will never use anything else!

Lips
NYX is my favorite lipgloss brand (MAC being a close second). I wear the "Creme Brûlée" Butter Gloss every damn day, and I ain't lying! It's the perfect natural, nude gloss and looks great on all skin tones.
