Hi loves! Here is a roundup of my current beauty products I use in my daily beauty routine 🙂 If I’m short on time I usually cut out things like ‘baking my makeup’, highlighter, winged liner, etc.
I always have to moisturize and prime my face before my makeup. The key to having flawless foundation is a good base so taking care of my skin has become a huge priority over the years. I recently started using the First Aid Ultra Repair Cream as my daily moisturizer during these drier months and it’s been awesome. I use it at night and in the morning. For primer, I’ve used MAC Timecheck lotion for about a year and like it but recently picked up the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer and love it a lot! I don’t always prime my face – only on days I really need my makeup to last all day. Otherwise, I feel like sometimes primers can clog up the pores if worn every day (at least for me).
FOUNDATION & CONCEALER
I only started wearing high end foundation less than two years ago, but I must say that it does make a difference! However, there are some really good drugstore foundations out there. I used Loreal True Match (Shade W4) for YEARS and loved it so much. My tried and true is NARS Sheer Glow in shade ‘Barcelona’. I’ve been trying out Georgio Armani Luminous Silk in shade 5.75 the past two weeks and I freaking love it! It lasts all day and looks flawless. Both foundations are medium coverage and buildable.
EYELINER & MASCARA
Eyeliner and Mascara are the two things I feel like I will never go high end on. The drugstore versions just work so well! My liquid liner is like $3 which I mean you really can’t beat. I always have to wear bottom liner – no matter what. I feel naked without it lol.
This mascara combo works really well for my short asian lashes! I use the Maybelline Megaplush first and then Loreal Telescopic after. For my bottom lashes, I like using Loreal Lash Paradise. I get all of my mascaras in waterproof and in the color black or blackest black.
I used to use an angled brush and a MAC paintpot for my brows but once I tried Anastasia Brow Wiz it was over. I have never gone back 😉 My shade is Chocolate and it creates really natural looking brows. The lash gel keeps my brows in place all day and takes cares of any stray hairs.
POWDER, BRONZER & BLUSH
If you haven’t tried Laura Mercier translucent powder, you need to. It is the GOAT. It is the makeup product that has changed my whole life!! But really, it sets makeup like no other.
This bronzer in ‘Radiant Bronze Light’ has been my favorite for the last couple years, but I also like this one too. I am a blush fanatic so I have tons of colors in my collection but always gravitate towards MAC Love Joy day to day.
BRUSHES & SETTING SPRAYS
I use my beautyblender for pretty much everything (foundation, concealer, baking my makeup). I’ve tried other drugstore sponges and they work but just not as well as the beauty blender. It’s worth the ridiculous $20 pricepoint. I love real techniques brushes! They’re really soft, high quality, and affordable.
