I am probably one of the simplest people I know when it comes to a makeup routine. Speaking honestly, I’ve never been the best at makeup and to me, the quicker and easier, the better! I wanted to share a few of my favorites that I’ve been using for years. It usually only takes me about 10 minutes, tops, to apply my makeup routine. These are a few of my favorites, and MUST have’s that I definitely couldn’t live without.
Smashbox Reduce Redness Primer: This is what I use to start my makeup routine. It just helps to eliminate redness right off the bat and smoothes everything out. I never used to wear a primer, but I’m so glad I found this one to help my makeup set so much easier. It’s definitely something you should try if you don’t already use primer! Smashbox has a wide variety of other primers, not just for redness!
Phoera Foundation: I have struggled to find a FULL COVERAGE foundation that really works for me for years. I struggle with extreme redness on my skin, and I swear I’ve tried everything from the Born This Way Foundation to the Kat Von D Full Lock-It Tattoo Full Coverage Foundation. While those might work well for others, Pheora is by far the BEST I’ve ever worn. It is super full coverage and light, and it’s so cheap and easily accessible on Amazon. It lasts me forever and I know you’ll love it, too. I wear shade Buff Beige (004).
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer: If you follow lots of bloggers, chances are you’ve seen the hype around the infamous Shape Tape from Tarte. I decided to give it a shot a couple years back and I’m so glad I did. It helps so much with concealing those extra red spots like my nose, and the dark spots under my eyes. There are a ton of different shades to choose from so you can match your skin almost perfectly. It will also last you forever.
Eye Brow Pencil: My go-to is usually Sephora brand or Mary Kay. I usually prefer an actual pencil that can be sharpened because I feel like it just lasts longer.
Tartelette In Bloom Eye Palette or Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Luxury Palette: I’m so in love with each of these eye palettes. The In Bloom palette is definitely my “every day” look and if I am dressing up or going for a more glam look, the Charlotte Tilbury palette is perfect. I’m all about the neutral colors that will go with everything.
Stila Stay All Day® Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner: This is by far my most favorite eye liner of all time. It’s so easy to apply and lasts forever. It goes on super smooth and you can also order this on Amazon for faster shipping. It’s one of my musts!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara: I’ve tried so many different mascaras and I always come back to this one. It makes my lashes look so incredibly long, and it stays on all day long. I love that the brush is super thick, so it makes my lashes look so full. It’s one of the top selling mascaras in America – and for good reason!
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Kit: This kit is a bit of a splurge, but it’s something that you can wear every single day that goes with everything. Again, I love a neutral lip that I can throw on and know will match anything. Plus, the gloss is so luxurious and makes your lips feels so good!
Sigma Beauty Kabuki Brush: I wanted to also link my favorite makeup brush. I’ve been using this kabuki brush for almost three years now, and love how effortlessly it applies my foundation. It’s a brush that I’ll use forever!
And there you have it! Quick, simple, and so easy! Let me know if you have any questions about any of these products or others, and I’d be happy to help!
