My Updated Make-up Routine / July 2019
Full disclosure: I apply my foundation and concealer with my fingers (nothing fancy here lol) and my Bare Minerals, Bobbi Brown, & Becca Cosmetics products that I personally use, I find at Marshalls or TJ Maxx between $7.99 and $16.99! (It's like a scavenger hunt for me to go find these products new for such discounted prices!) Just listing them here in case you're wanting what I actually use and what shades. I've also listed the products in the order in which I apply them. (I'm not a professional, it's just how I do it.) Video tutorials of how to apply on our instagram here !
Primer - I was very skeptical to buy this, but I heard it works really well for oily/combination skin and it really does minimize pores which is a concern for me, I seem to have larger pores. And this sets my foundation really well!
Foundation - In the shade of Warm Nude. This glides on so smoothly for being so affordable!
Concealer - Another affordable product in Ivory. A little goes a long way... I mean just a dot under each eye tapped in.
Setting Powder - In banana, dab in under eyes and all over face with brush.
Blush - In Tigerlily. Loving this peachy-pink color, that has a hint of glow for your cheeks!
Highlighter - Right now I'm using this Bobbi Brown one that I found at Marshalls, but it's on the pricier side if you can't find it on sale. One of my favorites that is a little more reasonably priced is the Becca Opal one. Both work great!
Eyeshadow - This is the palette I use every single day. I use the lighter colors for day with the white shimmer just underneath my eyebrow arch. And for night or shows, I use the two darker colors in the outer corners of my eyes. The colors are rich and stay on all day!
Eyeliner - This liner is so affordable, but works well for cat eyes.
Lipstick - This lipstick has become my go-to! It's a perfect nude/pink shade 45. I love it so much, that I saw it on sale and bought two more to have on hand lol.
Lipliner - This affordable liner is the other part of my go-to combo lately in Bare to Comment.
