My current everyday makeup routine

My current everyday makeup routine

I though that it was about time I did a post about my everyday makeup routine. Over the past couple of weeks these products have been on my face almost everyday. That’s why I would like to share my thoughts about them with you! Obviously I love all these

products otherwise they wouldn’t be in my everyday makeup routine. On a daily basis I don’t wear foundation, usually only wear a tinted moisturizer or concealer with powder.

 

Base

Before I do my makeup I always make sure that I’ve moisturized and put SPF on. I use a SPF 50 on an everyday basis to protect my face from the sun. After that I use the Makeup Revolution Aqua Priming Base and spray this all over my face. When it’s still a bit tacky I use the YSL Touche Éclat mainly under my eyes to brighten. The Touche Éclat also has concealer properties and my shade is quite pink, which helps to cover some dark circles as well. I also highlight with the Touche Éclat around my nose, chin, bridge of my nose and forehead (in between my brows). With a dampened Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge I blend the concealer/highlighter until it’s melted into my skin.
After that I use the MAC Mineralized Skin Finish and press this onto my whole face, avoiding my under eye area. Because I have very dry skin in my under eye area I don’t powder there. I haven’t noticed the Touche Éclat creasing during the day without powdering, which is a big plus!

To finish my base I use the blush from the Makeup Revolution Iconic palette and apply this manly to the apples of my cheeks. To highlight all the high points of my face I use the Mary-Lou Manizer.

Eyes

I usually only curl my eyelashes and use the Boujoir Glamour mascara in ultra black. I do about two coats on my upper lashes and one on my lower once. When I fancy some eye shadow I use The Body Shop honey bronzing powder to give some depth to the crease of my eyes.

 

Brows

I’ve recently dyed my hair a little blonder. So at the moment I only use a clear brow gel on a day-to-day basis. Using a tinted eyebrow gel makes my eyebrows appear too dark in my opinion. My favorite clear brow gel is the Maybeline Brow Drama in the clear shade.

 

Lips

For lips I like to keep in nude, but I have a few options for my everyday makeup. When I go for the bare lips I like to put a little lip balm on my lips. I also like to wear the NYX slim lip pencil in nude pink on it’s own or use Tanya Burr’s lipstick in Birthday Cake.

 

I hope you enjoyed reading about my everyday makeup routine. If you have any recommendations I would love to know! Or if you want to tell me your makeup routine leave a comment below!

  • Hey Anna, I love this post. It reminds me how luck I am to be a guy. I do not envy you having to do this every morning and I believe women should be allowed to days off or arrive to work later than men on account of it. Either way I am appreciative of the ritual. All the best Anna – Anthony
