My Makeup Love Affair!
I’ve been asked a few times to share my daily make-up routine with all you gals so here we are. This however is the regimen when I go to work. I would be lying to say that I didn’t just throw on gloss and mascara on days off. So here goes nothing. All my favorite beauty secrets to date.
Step One: Cleanse and Moisturize
B.Right Radiant Skincare…this stuff is life changing. I always feel like a shiny clean glowing goddess!
Step Two: Prime
Dr. Feelgood is my husband. This balm regulates everything potentially abnormal about my skin so I have a nice even canvas to work on top of. BONUS it lasts forever.
Step Three: Conceal
Stay Don’t Stray. It speaks for itself its actually an eyeshadow primer that doubles as a concealer and I have yet to encounter a product that stays put longer.
Step Four: Cover
Rimmel 25+You Rebel Tinted Moisturizer. I love the combination of this thin inexpensive foundation and the protection and comfort of the tinted moisturizer. Love!
Step Five: Set
Cover Girl Loose Powder. Call me crazy but its all you need to absorb extra oils and set your coverage all day. This powder and I have been chums since 2000. Give her a shot. Ditch the puff use a brush.
Step Six: Bronze
Hoola. This is where its at for bronzers, if you use one all over like I do. It has a great pigment fighting undertone and contours naturally.
Step Seven: Blush and Highlight
MAC Peaches & Laura Mercier Gilded Garden. These are so beautiful together. I love the cheery pop that Peaches offers and the multiple colors that Gilded Garden infuses for a fresh bright face.
Step Eight: Eyes
Loreal Double Extend + Benefit They’re Real. I love the primer in Double Extend and Theyre Real speaks volume into lifeless lashes in a way that is unbelievable, hence the name. Its a nice glossy flexible finish that wears all day.
MAC Fluidline in Black track. I have lined so easily with the mid gloss finish that always makes a classy eye.
Step Nine: Brows
Benefit Brow Zings. This thing is a life saver for an alert full face look. Shaping is easy with the wax and powder formula. If you tweezed too much or are trying to conceal messy brows this is a great “fake it ‘til you make it” product.
High Brow is a brow highlight that is a life saver for the day you could have taken extra shot of espresso. Bing your awake!
Step Ten: Lip
Laura Mercier Lip Pencils & Lancome Juicy Tubes. The blend of these two gems is always beautiful with a great color infusion and a glassy lustre.
So my secrets are unveiled! Good luck finding your own magic formula. Products work differently for all of us so go get lost in a department store cosmetic area and find your new favorite things. Feel fancy gals and let me know all about your hero products!
