My Beauty Routine: Essentials

My Beauty Routine: Essentials


Anastasia contour kit (mine is light to medium)- works wonders // Marc Jacobs bronzer brush (the BEST!) // Marc Jacobs bronzer (tantric bronze) // Mac pigment (in naked and bronze) // Mac lipstick and Lip pencil in “Whirl” // Revlon ‘Colorstay’ foundation (I wear “natural tan”, this makeup is by far the best) // Benefit “they’re real” mascara // Mac pro-longwear blush (in ‘rosy outlook’) // Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner (in ‘stash’) // LOREAL double-extend primer and mascara 

A few people have reached out to me lately asking about my make-up routine and what brands I use, so I decided to show you all of my must-have staples.  Some days I just throw on some foundation and mascara, while other days I like to get dolled up and play around with my makeup!

I absolutely LOVE this foundation by Revlon.  I have tried hundreds of different liquid foundations including high end like Armani, Dior and Laura Mercier but always end up coming back to this one, and the best part yet- it’s only $9.99 and you can get it at Target!  I have also used this eyeliner by Urban Decay for years.  The color is ‘stash‘ and it’s almost a greenish-cold color.  Black usually looks to harsh, especially with my blonde hair, so this color is a bit softer and such a gorgeous color.  I always get people asking me what eyeliner I’m wearing.  Another beauty staple for me is Mac lipstick in “whirl.” Counter Kylie Jenner anyone?! This color goes perfectly with pretty much all outfits, and any time of year.  I’ve already gone through 2 tubes of it in 3 months! Whoops. I use this mascara primer to prime my lashes and it works amazing.  I don’t like the mascara part because it usually makes my lashes very clumpy. I tend to not switch my routine too often, especially when I am happy with the products I am using, but I am up for any suggestions of other products you can’t live without!

I hope everyone has a great Wednesday! xoxo

  6. I'm just now venturing into the world of liquid foundations and so far I've had good luck with Bareminerals and Clinique. I love the MAC pigment, my sister swears by MAC I need to venture into them next…I'm so new to makeup, I've always been an natural look kind of girl but I'm starting to play.

    I agree with most of your choices, but I have to admit I really don't like the Revlon foundation or the "They're Real" mascara because there's so many better foundations & mascaras. Mascara is one of those things that jives with some people, but not all because we all have different wants for our lashes. They're Real just doesn't do enough for me unfortunately. I enjoyed reading your beauty related post because you know me and my beauty obsession 😉 xx, adaatude.com

  10. I totally agree, everyone is different when it comes to makeup, especially mascara! This foundation has always worked really well for me after trying so many expensive brands.. But I am sure there are a ton of other amazing ones out there! <3
