I thought I would share my everyday make up routine with you! I have shared similar posts before here and other beauty posts here & here, but for those of you who are new to following along, I thought I would update some of it and share again! Plus, how cute is Ruby in the last photos? She is the absolute cutest, everyday Pat and I say how lucky we are to have such a sweet dog. Read more about Ruby here.
I am typically one to throw on moisturizer and a dab of liquid foundation and head out of the door. I use to wear mascara everyday and honestly, I got so annoyed with putting it on. I wear it two to three times a week now, depending on what I am doing! I have just recently become more comfortable with how I look without it!
Starting off with my little routine, I use Tula‘s “Illuminating Serum“, followed by Clinque’s “Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion” mixed with Mac’s “Studio Waterweight Foundation“. In the foundation color, I use #45! This is just a light coverage on my face, I don’t like anything too heavy or thick!
If it’s a day where I am going out to dinner or meet up with friends or take blog photos, I tend to use the Anastasia Contour Cream Kit in “light to medium”. You can see in the photo above that I am drawing a line on my cheek bones to give them definition in which I then use a beauty blender like this one here to blend the line into my cheeks. I use the creams highlighters under my eyes to brighten my eyes! I instantly feel awake when I do this!
Up next is what I use to fill in my brows! I have shared this eyebrow kit from e.l.f cosmetics before with you. Yes, I am still obsessed with using this $3 product to give me fuller eyebrows! Honestly, the next time you are at Target, pick up this little kit, you won’t be disappointed!
If I am apply eyeshadow, there is no question, I’ll use Urban Decay’s Naked Palette. I love the neutral tones of this palette, especially because I like less make up on than more and it feels very natural for me. It is above and beyond worth the investment. You’ll purchase it and it’ll last for two years if not more!
Lastly- mascara! I always start with L’oreal Paris Voluminous Primer. I put one or two coats of this on and then I use a regular black mascara on top of it. The primer preps your lashes, I feel it makes mine longer and fuller when I add this step! My favorite mascaras are Estee Lauder Sumptuous Bold Lifting Mascara here and Maybelline’s Volume Express the Rocket Mascara here. I once read that Carrie Underwood’s make up artist always uses two types of mascaras on her eyelashes to make them longer and fuller, I don’t know if there is any science behind this but I actually think it works! I always use two different kinds on my lashes!
There you have a simple routine! Let me know your thoughts! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Pat and I are looking at two wedding venues! I’m excited!
xx, Brittany Ann
