So I got a few requests a while back to share my makeup routine with you all. I tried to film a video of me applying my makeup, but jeeze, you guys, that is not easy. It was, if we’re being honest, just one big FAIL, so I’m sticking to a good ole’ blog post instead. I’ll picture each one and link to where to buy the products, if you feel so inclined! Also, you can just click the photo to get to each product. Enjoy! :)
(for days when I want more coverage)
(My most favourite crease eyeshadow EVER!!)
(3 coats of this = falsies, and the waterproof is amazing)
First, I apply a moisturizer as my base, to get my skin ready for makeup and give it that dewy, fresh look. I then dab a bit of concealer under my eyes and put tinted moisturizer all over my face. That SPF is important to protect your sensitive skin! I then use a flat top brush and apply some foundation all over in circular motions, making sure to blend really well. Using my big fluffy brush, I apply bronzer to my cheekbones and up on my temples as well and also do some contouring, to give that “sun-kissed” look. Then I use a blush brush to apply a bit of blush to the apples of my cheeks, for some color. For my eyes, I use the lighter eyeshadow on the upper brow bone, right underneath my eyebrows and put the darker shadow in the crease, to create definition. I then apply liquid liner in a very fine line only on the upper lash line of my eye, never the bottom, as this makes your eyes appear bigger. I finish off the look with a few swipes of mascara and some lip balm! Voila!
Obviously, this isn’t every day. Some days, I literally wear no makeup and some days I go heavier. Just depends on how I’m feeling. But those products up there? They are my go-to, holy grail makeup products. Some are more high-end, and some are dirt cheap. Cus that’s how I roll. I cannot stress enough: you do NOT have to pay ridiculous amounts of money to get great products! Some of my absolute favourites are under $5 (I’m looking at you, NYC bronzer and e.l.f. eyeliner!)
What is your go-to makeup? I’m kind of a product junkie. ;)
