my everyday makeup routine

I thought it would be fun to share with you something I am passionate about besides interiors!

I am not a beauty blogger by any means, but every now and then someone will ask me about my makeup and what I use. So I thought I'd do a post about it and share it!

I have used so many different products in my lifetime, cheap, expensive, you name it. 

But I think I have finally found after 44 years makeup that really works for me, stays on all day, and makes me look a few years younger. 

I use all the items below everyday and I think they are all fail proof for a flawless fresh look.


I start every morning with a clean face. I use this face wash and this exfoliater.

Pat your face dry and rub a tiny bit of this onto your skin. A little goes a long way. This creates a base for your makeup and will even out your skin tone. I have heard some people use this as their foundation, but I like a bit more coverage. It is not cheap, but it is well worth it. And like I said, this bottle will last about a year.

Next I apply Nars sheer glow foundation {in fiji} with the largest brush from this set. I use swirling motions and bring it down a bit onto your neck so you don't see a line. 

This concealer is the best. {I use light beige} Your eyeshadow will stay put all day long. I cannot say enough good things about this. Apply it to your eyelid as well as under your eyes. I also dot it on any blemishes or anything else I want covered up. Blend in with the same large brush you used for your foundation.

With the smaller brush in your set, apply Bobbi Brown illuminating bronzing powder to the nose and cheeks, bringing it up to your temples. I use the color called Aruba. 

Shaping your eyebrows is easy with this pencil. I also get my eyebrows waxed, but I won't go out of the house without this on! Makes such a big difference in the way you look! I use the color soft brown.

Now it is time to move onto your eyes, my favorite part! Start by sweeping "heaven" all over your eyelid from this palette.

Using this palette, apply "dreamer" in the crease. 

Use the smallest skinny brush that comes in the set, wet it, then coat it with "multi tasker" from this palette and apply it as eyeliner to the upper lid. 
Rinse out your brush and do the same thing on the lower lid with "wanderer"

Apply this insane mascara to the top and bottom lashes. It will make your lashes l o n g! I like to apply 2 coats to the top lashes. I actually like using the mini version rather than the full sized because I find it easier to manage when I apply it. 

Finally it's time to moisturize your lips. I have so many favorite lipsticks, stains, and glosses. 

This one is great because it is glossy and it tints to match your skin tone, so you can't go wrong with the color. The bonus is you can also use it on your cheeks for a sun kissed look! I use the color called forever pink.

This chapstick with a tint to it is also one I carry in my car and purse.

If you are looking for something very glossy, I like this in the color flirt.

I also really recommend this gloss, you just need to find your favorite color as there is so many to choose from! I like number 722, 166, and 726 the best! 

And finally, set all that hard work with this illuminating setting spray. It will add that dewy look to your skin and your makeup won't budge all day! 

I hope you enjoyed this post! I have linked all these up to liketoknowit as well.
