I first just want to say that I enjoy using and applying makeup! I’ve watched YouTube makeup tutorials for years, and I really just love experimenting with makeup. I obviously don’t think I need it to be confident, but I do feel my best with makeup on. If you don’t feel that way, that’s totally fine! If you aren’t a big makeup person, that’s no problem at all. I just thought I would make a little disclaimer because this really is the routine I do basically everyday that I wear makeup.
I am going to write this post in the order I use each product. I realize my makeup application order might be a little strange, so bare with me!
// Brushes I use!
I have used Sigma brushes for years, and I absolutely love them! In my mind they are easily comparable to the quality of MAC brushes, and other higher-end makeup companies. I’ll try to say which brush I use with each step, I also use my Beauty Blender to apply foundation.
I use NYX concealer as an eye base. I then either use the Maybelline Nudes palette or the Wet n’ Wild Walking on Eggshells trio. I enjoy both and whichever I use just depends on the look I am aiming for that day. If I want a shimmery lid, the trio is better, but if I’m going for a matte look I use the Nudes palette! I use the Sigma E55 and E30 brushes to apply the eyeshadow and E40 to blend.
After applying eyeshadow I use the NYC High Definition Liquid Eyeliner. If I want to have winged eyeliner, I use the Wet n Wild MegaLiner. It just depends on the day!
3// Eye brows
I fill in my eyebrows with the NYC Brow Kit and the Sigma E65 brush!
I use the Almay Clear Complexion concealer to conceal and under my eyes. I also use the NYX Concealer Jar! I use either the F70 brush to apply or my fingers!
Foundation definitely changes depending on the season, but currently I’m using the Revlon ColorStay foundation for normal/dry skin. I apply this with my Beauty Blender typically, but occasionally I will use the Sigma F50 brush.
I apply mascara after my foundation/concealer because I find it is annoying to put on under eye concealer after I’ve applied mascara. I use Covergirl’s Flamed Out mascara! I find it comparable to Better Than Sex by Too Faced, which I also like to use.
I’ve used the Rimmel StayMatte power for years and I absolutely love it as an all-over face powder!
I’m super pale, so bronzer is a must, but can be tricky to find one that isn’t too dark for my skin. My favorite has recently been Benefit’s Hoola bronzer, applied with Sigma’s F40 brush.
For blush I use elf’s Studio Blush in Fuchsia Fusion, which I also apply with Sigma’s F40 brush.
I use Benefits Watt’s Up and just apply with my fingers!
I am not a huge lip product fan. I find that reapplying is a hassle, so I really only use lip products when I’m doing a full-out makeup look. If it’s an everyday routine, I usually just use Carmex!
There you have it, my everyday makeup routine! As you can see, I have a mix of product brands, but mostly drugstore. If you have any suggestions, let me know, I love trying new products!
