Most days I am pretty basic with my make-up routine, which consists of some Aveeno lotion mixed with a little concealer, a basic brow job and some mascara. When I have meetings, on the weekends or when we go out I definitely step it up a few notches and here are some of my favorite products for those occasions.
For my face, I always use Aveeno lotion with SPF and I either mix that with my lancome concealer for a light all over correction or as a stand alone with the dual finish powder on top. To hide under eye circles I use the Clinique fine lines concealer, and if there is any reddness (usually around my nose or on my chin) I cover that up with my Sephora green concealer stick. After my foundations I take a large brush and apply the dual finish powder to finish the look.
Next I move on to my brows, and although I am no expert, I do follow this type of a technique https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJcwQ6Ees4E. The
products I use are my Lancome pencils (one to outline and the other to help fill), Urban Decay brow kit and Anastasia brow gel. All of which I find really easy to use and a great blend for my light brows and fair skin.
After my brows I apply my bronzer, blush and if we are going out for the evening I also use my Clinique contour and highlight sticks.
Next up are my eyes, I like to wait and do my eyeshadow and mascara last because the powder, bronzer and blush inevitably will blend over onto my eyelids. I am in love with the Kat Von D. tattoo liner (thanks to my sister for the introduction) and have found that it is by far the easiest liner I have ever used. Again, I am no expert when it comes to liquid liners, but this one even makes me look talented. I am loving the Naked palette by Urban Decay because it has a little bit of everything, which is perfect if you are trying to simplify your routine and amount of products like me. Then I work in my mascara, and again, if it's the evening I go a step further and start with the booster for some added lash volume.
Last, but not least, are my lips. The color I choose is really based on my look, which most days is casual for work so I stick with chapstick or gloss, but when I do want color I like to stick with one of my Nars sticks.
What's your daily routine like? Do you have some favorite products? I would love to hear more in the comments...I'm always looking for ideas!
