My Daily Makeup Routine

I’ve been all about the skin care life lately, but thought it was about time to do a refresher on my current daily makeup routine.

I’ll preface this blog post by reinforcing that I greatly appreciate a quick morning routine. When I get up it’s early and it’s dark out, and I have a 25 minute walk ahead of me. Needless to say – I keep it quick.

That being said, my routine has changed a bit in the last year as I’ve been playing with new products and trying new tricks. So here’s the updated daily routine.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Concealer in Fair Light – Truthfully, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this when I first ordered it. I’d been using Laura Mercier for a while and didn’t give the Tarte concealer a fair shake until my trusty LM ran out. Fast forward – Now that I’ve just bought my second tube, I can confirm that it has beautiful coverage and great staying power throughout the day. I’m officially converted.

Laura Mercia Eye Brow Pencil in Blonde – I have used this brow pencil for years and it never fails. I always keep one in my bag!

Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel in Light – Benefit is known for their eyebrow products and this brow gel is a MUST. Super easy to use for a quick, high-impact look.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Tinted Pressed Powder Compact in Light – I don’t use face make-up which means I can get a little shiny by the end of the day, so I like to keep a compact on hand to powder off my forehead on occasion. 🙂

Tarte Tarteist Double Take Liquid Eyeliner in Black- This is my latest adventure in liquid eyeliners. I always go back to Kat Von Dee’s Tattoo Liner, but I like to try other brands in between.

Estee Lauder Sumptuous Extreme Mascara in Extreme Black – Since I stopped getting my lashes tinted/curled, I’ve rediscovered my love of mascara. Really enjoying this Estee Lauder one, though my top two are Benefit’s BADgal and, of course, Maybelline Great Lash. Always and forever!

Benefit Watt’s Up Cream-to-Powder Highlighter – If you’re new to the art of highlighting products, like I am, this is a great product. Easy to use and subtle – No mistakes!

NARS Blush in Orgasm – The perfect shade of blush. Super flattering and works for most skin tones. Love this!

Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzer – I’ve used this bronzer off and on for years and it’s still a killer product. The perfect way to add a little color or do some basic contouring.

Beauty Blender Micro Mini – I adore beauty blenders and keep a mini version in my daily makeup bag for under eye concealer.

Too Faced Kabuki Brush – This is the perfect retractable brush to carry with you for a quick blush, bronzer, or contouring update.

Kevyn Aucoin Eyelash Curler – This is a great basic eyelash curler that I picked up at Sephora.
