My Current Makeup Routine


My makeup routine drives me crazy. On one hand, I pretty much use the same products over and over again and yet on the other hand, I am always trying new things. Pretty much…I am always trying new things and end up coming back to my old product. Lol. 

The one thing I really struggle to find is a foundation I am happy with. Trying to find the perfect foundation is like trying to find the foundation of youth. It’s soooo difficult. I am oily and I love full coverage. I love my Armani but it’s not working for me during the summer. It slides off my face. It is amazing for special occasions but doesn’t really hold up for a 16 hour work day. So based on the recommendation of a Sephora rep, I bought Too Faced’s Born This Way foundation and it’s perfect….but I think it may be breaking me out…I am going to give it two more weeks. I am definitely going to keep the bottle I’ve been using but I will return the new bottle I ordered as well as the powder version. Anyway….here’s my current makeup routine:

  1. Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation or Too Faced’s Born This Way: I love both but I probably won’t be repurchasing either one. Foundation is impossible. Armani is super expensive and doesn’t last all day… Too Faced may be breaking me out…wondering if I should go back to the BareMinerals Original Foundation…
  2. Chanel concealer: this is my 2ndor 3rdof this concealer. I switch between this and the YSL. I love both and highly recommend. 
  3. Armani Blush: I usually use a Chanel blush but I like this one as well. It lasts all the day and looks natural. I think Armani discontinued their blushes though so I’ll probably go back to Chanel.
  4. Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Powder in Shade 30: this is my 2ndor 3rdtime purchasing. I use this as bronzer and it’s perfect. It looks so natural on my skin and I’m not overdone. 
  5. Armani Cream Shadow in Rose Ashes: this is my 2ndtime purchasing. I love it and it’s so easy to use but they recently changed the packaging on this one. Now it won’t even last me two months! I am almost finished. I recommend this one to someone who doesn’t wear makeup every day. 
  6. Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder: I won’t be repurchasing this. It’s perfect for setting your makeup and under eyes but it’s too light for me. (I bought shade medium) I look like a ghost when I wear this. I am so disappointed because this is perfect for traveling and doesn’t make a mess.
  7. Stila eyeliner: I have used this eyeliner for years. I just use on my lids and it’s so natural. Love it. 
  8. Laura Mercier Translucent Setting Powder: I have been using this since 2015. It’s great and I will definitely be repurchasing. Too bad that it can get a bit messy….
  9. Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Modern Mercury Highlighter: I am OBSESSED with this. It’s almost 3 years old but I love it so much. It’s almost at the end of its life. I wish I had a backup and I never purchased another highlighter since I bought this one. It’s natural with a pop. I get SO much compliments. VB is coming out with a makeup line in the Fall. I hope she includes this highlighter. 
  10. Lancome Hypnose Drama Full Body Volume Mascara: This mascara isn’t my fave. I know Lancome makes a good mascara but this one is clumpy. I’ll try something else next time. 
  11. Bareminerals loose eyeshadow in Finesse- I love bareminerals loose eyeshadows. They are so pigmented and last forever. I like them better than the pressed version! I already have a backup! 

That’s it for now! I don’t see anything changing except my foundation…

Happy Wednesday!!
