My Everyday Makeup Routine

Hello darlings!!!

I thought it would be the perfect time for a makeup routine update! When I was on Accutane (and throughout all my acne years), it was easier for me to learn what products I DID NOT like. And boy were there many!!! 

My skin is just super sensitive and it funny because the products they tell me will break me out don’t and the “natural” products…do. I’ll chat more about that later. 

My makeup routine pretty much stays the same with the exception of a few new things here and there. I always want to try new products and then end up hating them and going back to my original. I’m not wasting any more money! So here we go..

  1. Sunscreen: I wear sunscreen everyday no matter what. I needed to when I was on Accutane but it’s also so important for both health and aging reasons! I wear Elta MD Clear Sunscreen
  2. Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation #6.5 or Chanel oil-free foundation #BD41 or #BR42. I use a few different Chanel foundations and they all pretty much work for me as long as they are oil-free. I prefer Armani because I feel like their shades are more natural looking on me. Chanel is getting better than they were a few years ago but still…they can still do more work on their shades.  
  3. Charlotte Tilbury shade #3 concealer or YSL Touche Eclat concealer #3. I like the CT concealer and will repurchase but I had to play around with different setting powders for this one. I was using the CT Flawless Finish powder but it was making my eyes tear and my concealer was melting off by noon. I use my trusty Laura Mercier Translucent Powder to set my under eyes. 
  4. Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Powder in shade #2 medium to set my entire face. I get so many compliments because of this stuff. 
  5. Chanel Les Beiges Sheer Powder in shade #30 for my bronzer. I think it’s a little too light in the shade but it does give a natural look. I look a little warmer without looking like Kim K. 
  6. Giorgio Armani blush but it has been discontinued. I will go back to my Chanel blush in shade #80 Jersey. 
  7. Eyeshadow changes around a bit. I use Nars cream shadow sticks in Goddess and then go with Chanel palette #226 Tisse Rivoli. In the New Year I will probably simplify my eye makeup routine a bit. 
  8. I use Hourglass mascara at the moment because it was a free sample but I am not loyal to any. I think I will go back to drugstore. I do prefer dark brown mascaras! 
  9. I use Stila and Urban Decay eyeliners to line upper and lower lids. I am really liking the dark brown shades. They look a bit more natural. 
  10. Victoria Beckham x Estee Lauder highlighter in Modern Mercury: I have been using this for at least 3 years. It’s a limited edition but not going anywhere. I am obsessed. 
  11. I use Drybar hairspray on a toothbrush for my brows. I used to use expensive eyebrow gels but this is way cheaper. 

That’s it! That’s my everyday makeup routine. I do not wear makeup if I am not going to work. I let my skin breathe and give it a break. I will be removing some things come new year or as I finish up products. I am trying to simplify!!! 

Happy Friday and my skincare routine will be coming up next!

Enjoy your weekend!!
