My Everyday Makeup

I've been thinking about doing a post like this for a while now, but every time I go to write it, I seem to want to change something that I am using. Right now I feel like I have a good system down, and I am feeling like I am in a good place with my makeup routine, so I want to document it. 

So here are the products that I'm using right now. Most are drugstore products, a few of them are from Sephora, and a couple were gifts. I have been dying to go to Ulta, but they are about 30 min away, and I haven't had the chance to make the trip lately. Soon!

My Everyday Makeup

Covergirl CG Smoothers BB Cream | 810 Light to Medium - I use this when I don't want to wear foundation. It moisturizes and still gives good coverage, so I can wear it on days when I am wearing lighter make up.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation | Light Sand - I use this on most days. This is pretty buildable, and it gives a very lasting wear. I like that the foundation itself has SPF 15, and it doesn't get cakey. Sometimes I apply this with a sponge, and sometimes with a brush, depending on what my skin is feeling like.

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Treatment Concealer | Neutralizer - I purchased this after seeing it on so many people's favorites lists and videos. At first I have to admit that I wasn't impressed, but since I figured out that you have to actually use a little more than you would think... it's going much better, and I actually really like it. Next time I might try getting a shade of concealer instead of the neutralizing shade to try something different.

NYX Micro Brow Pencil | Taupe - This is a really good brow pencil for the price. I like that it comes with a spoolie side, and that the pencil is pretty firm. My brows are pretty sparse, so it is nice for me to be able to have some control over a pencil to fill them in.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Pressed Powder | 011 Creamy Natural - I LOVE this powder. I like to use it to set my makeup, especially my brows. I like that it is very matte, and feels light on the skin. I also sometimes use this blend out my bronzer.

Bronzing Powder by H&M | Gorgeous Tan (similar) - This was a spur of the moment purchase when I ran out of bronzer and happened to see some at H&M. It is actually working out okay. It is a matte bronzer, which I like, because I use it in a pseudo contouring kind of way on my cheeks. So while I wouldn't purchase it again, it is working for now.

Maybelline Fit Me Blush | 306 Deep Coral - I bought this color in the summer, and am still using it because it is pretty and subtle. It looks great with the bronzer, and isn't too overpowering.

Benefit They're Real! Push-Up Liner | Black - This was a gift from the lovely Lindsay, and I have been using it regularly since she sent it to me. Gel liners give me my favorite look, but they have always been a pain to use with the little pot and brush. I think Benefit is genius for coming up with a way to get gel liner in a tube. This liner is dark, and the applicator is perfect for making the perfect cat eye.

Urban Decay Naked2 Palette - I use this palette every single day. I use the shade "BootyCall" for my brow bone, and a mix of the shades "YDK" and "Suspect" on my lid. If I am going for a darker look on my eyes, I will bring in the shade "Busted" into my crease. I almost always put my eyeshadow over the eyeliner, to create a nice foil effect.

Maybelline The Rocket Volum' Express Mascara | Blackest Black - After a good curl, this is a great mascara to separate, lengthen and volumize lashes. I've tried a lot of mascaras, and I really like this one.

Maybelline ColorSensational Lipstick | Warm Me Up - This is my every day lipstick. It is a great neutral pink tone. It seems to create a "these are my lips but better" look, that I find really pretty.

L'Oreal Paris Infallible Makeup Extender Setting Spray - I use this on days when I know I am going to be wearing my makeup for a long time, or when I am going to need to look fresh faced for a long time. This keeps my makeup set and looking new all day long. It is kind of weird to get used to spraying yourself in the face. So there's that.
