“Wake up and make-up”
Hello beauty queens! I thought I would hop on here quickly and share some of my everyday makeup faves. Some of them are drugstore brands and some aren’t, but I thought I would share what I do on a daily basis as a quick makeup routine! Also, I apologize for the products in the pictures being slightly dirty, I didn’t have time to go and get new ones for pictures hehe.
Whenever I start my makeup, I always wash my face and then apply a toner to close up those pores, then apply a lotion that has some SPF in it. You should make sure to apply lotion or foundation that has some sort of SPF in it. Then I always start with this primer. It is my favorite and makes your skin feel so smooth before applying foundation. This way, you have an even canvas to begin with!
Smashbox The Original Photo Finish Smoot & Blur Primer
This is my favorite drugstore foundation. It goes on super smoothly and doesn’t feel like you are wearing a heavy mask, the way some other drugstore foundations feel. I use a damp beauty blender to apply it all over my face and neck.
These are my all-time favorite concealers. Two of these are Tarte products and one is a drugstore brand. The Revlon photoready concealer is a thicker concealer that is definitely full coverage, I use this one for covering bigger blemishes and red areas. The creaseless Tarte concealer is used for lighter areas that don’t need as much coverage, and the shape tape is my favorite for contouring and making areas lighter. I use the shape tape under my eyes and below the cheekbones (under where the bronzer goes).

These are my favorite powders to use. I use the Neutrogena mineral sheers all over my face, and then use the RCMA setting powder under my eyes and below my cheekbones. This lightens it up and catches any extra eyeshadow that falls below my eyes. I use a big fluffy brush to wooly the mineral sheers foundation and a beauty blender to pack on the setting powder.
Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder Foundation
This is the eyebrow pencil that I use on an everyday basis. It’s very comparable to the Anastasia eyebrow pencil but much cheaper. One end is the pencil itself and the other end is a brush. It is super easy to use and I just follow the arch of my eyebrow and fill it in.
For the finishing touches, I put a little bronzer and highlighter on. These are my favorite ones. I apply a little bronzer to my cheekbones and near my temples. Then, I put a little bit of this highlighter on my upper cheekbones, brow bone, my nose, and on my cupid’s bow.
Two Faced Chocolate Matte Bronzer
Becca Pressed Highlighter (champagne pop)
This is my all-time favorite setting spray. I’ve been using it for years and it works wonders. Once you are fully done with your makeup, just mist this all over and it will last through sweaty workouts or nights out with your friends or all day while out and about. I swear by this stuff because it’s amazing and makes your makeup last through anything!

I know this was a quick little post but I hope that it helps you! These are just some of my favorite makeup products that I use on a daily basis. I would love to know what some of yours are!
