Simple Makeup Routine

by - Saturday, September 01, 2018

I'm finally back with a beauty post! I thought I'd share my current, everyday, simple makeup look. Since my senior year, I have watched my everyday makeup routine become more minimal and fresh. I used to pack on the eye shadow my junior year, but I've fallen out of love with that look for myself. Here's a proper mix of high-end and drugstore products for this natural, bronze look!!

I use the It Cosmetics CC cream; I love this product sooo much!! I started using this last November and it has become my holy grail base. It's got a natural, glowy finish, and the coverage is something you can keep sheer or easily build up. I like to apply half a pump and use my fingers to blend it in.
I then use my favourite concealer, the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind for my under-eyes & spots. Finally, I like to use the Clinique Blended Face Powder to set under my eyes, around my t-zone, and on those spots.

I use the Rimmel Natural Bronzer pretty much all over my face to warm and semi-contour. I also use this as my eyeshadow -- a light wash of colour that I also bring under my lower lash line to pull it all together.
This blush isn't around anymore as far as I know; it's a hand-me-down from my aunt, but it's the Benefit blush Thrrrob. (I've linked a page that shows what it looks like and some reviews of the product.) I've never even been a big fan of blush, as I have naturally rosy cheeks that always come through my makeup, however, I've been loving it recently.
Both the bronzer & blush have a subtle shimmer, and that's something that was never really my taste, but I actually like the look. It's still super natural, but it has a really nice effect. (At least, I think so:'))

My HOLY GRAIL mascara: L'oreal Lash Paradise in Blackest Black. I cannot rave enough about this product. For literally years, the Maybelline Lash Sensational was my fav & I didn't like anything else. Leaving that for the Lash Paradise was the best mascara decision I have ever made haha. It only takes one coat to give me fluttery, full, voluminous, and natural lashes. (I do use the waterproof one.)
I don't wear this liquid lipstick everyday, but when I do want to add something, I use NYX Lingerie in the shade Bedtime Flirt. I actually talked a little bit more about this lipstick in my 2017 February Favourites.

That's my very simple makeup look! Thank you for reading <3
