My Everyday Makeup

I am such a creature of habit. Once I find something I like and works, it's so hard for me to try something different! These products are what I literally use everyday... I mean EVERYday. I can't leave my house without at least putting on powder, concealer and eyeliner... It's a problem...

Here are my tried and true products (that will not brake the bank!):

1 // MAC 'Mineralize' Skinfinish Natural Light - When I was searching for makeup for my wedding day, I splurged at the MAC counter and got a lot of great products. There are only a few I now use everyday. One of which is this powder. After I apply my BB Cream (see below), I let it dry and then brush on this loose powder all over my face. It gives me the perfect matte finish and stays on all day. 

2 // H&M Bronzer (similar) - This was an impulse buy while at H&M a while ago. It was only something like $3. I use it on my cheeks and lightly dust my forehead and nose and it gives me the perfect glow.

3 // Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Spot Concealer + Treatment - This stuff works wonders for my undereye dark circles. It is a must have before I am ever seen in public!

4 // Maybelline Volum'Express The Rocket Mascara - This is a recent find. I used to wear the same type of mascara (also Maybelline) for the last 10 years. Everytime I tried to switch, I didn't like it. Then, my friend recommended this mascara and now I am hooked! The brush is actually a thick wand with a bunch small, hard bristles. It separates all my lashes perfectly and does not leave that 'clumpy' look (which we all hate). 

5 // MAC 'Pro Longwear' Paint Pot Soft Ochre - Have you ever had your eyeshadow form creases at the end of the day? Well, this stuff prevents that from happening. You simply apply this stuff all over your lids before you apply your eyeshadow and it provides a nice, smooth canvas to "paint" on. Definitely worth the $20. I have had this pot (the little black pot with no label) since before my wedding in November and I have only used a small percentage of it. It has the consistancy of clay and you only need a small dab to apply to your eyelids daily. 

6 // Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner - This stuff is the bomb dot com. I always used pencil eyeliners before and it would always smudge or I would never get the perfect line. My friend who did my makeup for my wedding suggested that I get a gel eyeliner pot and an eyeliner brush. I'm so glad I did! It's so easy to use the brush to apply the perfect line. I apply a line on top with a slight cat eye wing at the end of my lid and also apply a small line underneight my lid. The eyeliner stay on all day long and never smudges. 

7 // Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter, Berry Smoothie - I've raved about this stuff before. This is my favorite everyday lip color and it goes on like buttaaaaa!

8 // CoverGirl Smoothers SPF 15 BB Cream Tinted Moisture - I've raved about this stuff before too. I use this as my everyday moisterizer. I put it n every morning. It goes on like lotion, but has a slight tint to provide slight coverage to smooth out skin tone. I don't like using thick foundation on my face everyday. I save that for special occassions. I use this stuff everyday and finish with loose powder on top for a matte finish. 

9 // CoverGirl Eye Enhancers 1 Kit Eye Shadow, Tapestry TaupeBrown Smolder - Lastly, this is the eyeshadow combo I literally wear everyday. Have been for years now. I use the Tapestry Taupe all over my lids. It is a shimmery pinkish-taupe color and really brightens up my eyes. I finish with applying the Brown Smolder to my creases and outside edge of my lids for a more smokey look. The warm/brown tones really bring out the blue in my eyes. 

And there you have it, folks! 

My everyday makeup routine. It takes me about 5 minutes to do this and the results are great. It is the ame make up I've used in all my Bump-Date photos, so you can see it is a very natural look. 

What are your everyday makeup staples?

I'm linking up with Home of Malones today!


  1. I need a new mascara and that one sounds great - i love getting the fancy sample ones from Sephora for travel but when it comes to the full size I like to get the drug store kind because it's really the same formula!! We have a very similar every day makeup routine :)

  2. I'm obsessed with that MAC finishing powder! I can't live without it!
