my makeup favorites + daily routine

Hi everyone!

I thought I would switch things up and show you my makeup favorites and my general makeup routine. I of course change products such as blush, eyeshadow, and lipstick each day, but these are the products that I find myself gravitating towards on a daily basis.



 1. Benefit Porefessional: This is a great base for my makeup. I find that if you concentrate it around your more oily spots, it can help create a smoother surface and tone down the oil.

2. L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte in Shell Beige: I absolutely love this foundation. It stays on all day and looks flawless. I love how it creates a matte look without causing you to look dull. It has great coverage and evens out my skintone how I like foundations to do. Definitely the best drugstore foundation I have tried.

3. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla: This concealer looks great under the eyes, but is also heavy enough for imperfections. I can use this concealer for all my coverup needs, and it wears well. I also use this on my eyes for an eyeshadow base.

4. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder: I have been using this powder for quite a while. I find that it looks flawless on top of the L'Oreal foundation. It's a great setting powder as well as a light coverup. I switch between the transparent shade and the natural shade.

5. Colourpop Cheek color in Birthday Suit: Blush is one of those items I switch up frequently, but I find myself reaching for this product the most. It has a cream to powder finish and you can built it up for more coverage or dust a little bit on for a natural flush. I find that it goes well with all shades of lipstick as well.

6. Benefit Hoola Bronzer: I like to use this bronzer for a bit of color. I apply it in a 3 motion instead of using a heavy contour. It also looks really nice.

7. Benefit KaBrow in Medium: This brow pomade stays on for 24 plus hours. It applies nicely, especially when I use my Anastasia Beverly Hills angled brow brush.

8. Mac Eyeshadow in Cork: When I reach for eyeshadow, I tend to go for taupe brown colors for the crease. I will either use this Mac eyeshadow which has great pigmentation or I will reach for my Naked 2 palette or Naked basics.

9. L'Oreal Voluminous Feline Eyeliner: This eyeliner is fantastic. It has a super thin felt tip brush that thins out which you can utilize for any eyeliner shape. It also has a great staying power for the price. I don't always have time to apply eyeliner, so this is not an everyday product for me.

10. Urban Decay 24/hr Glide-On Eye Pencil in Zero: I have been using this eye pencil for so long. I like to tightline my upper lashes and lightly line my lower lashes, especially when I use liquid liner. This truly stays on for 24 hours.

11. L'Oreal Feline Mascara: I have repurchased this mascara so many times. I find that mascara is different for everyone, so it is especially hard to find one that you stick with. The formula is the perfect consistency for my lashes and holds the curl and volume all day.

12. Smith's Lip Balm in Minted Rose: I have multiple of Smith's lipbalms, but my favorite is the Minted Rose. The consistency is so great for dry lips and makes my lips incredibly soft. I apply this at night time or before I do my makeup.

13. Anastasia Beverly Hills Liquid Lipstick in Catnip: I have to say this is one of my all time favorite lipsticks. I tend to wear dark pink lipsticks more than any shade, and this is my favorite color. Even more, it has a great staying power. And it truly dries matte!

For makeup brushes, I really like my Morphe brushes and It Cosmetics brushes. Other than that I tend to buy cheaper brushes for my eyes, such as Elf brushes.

Thanks for reading!
