Hey everyone!! Thanks for checking out my current routine, I hope you all can find some inspiration in these products like I have. As some of you may know I really love makeup, like I don’t know why, I just do. I can’t help it. I love to sit in front of my vanity for a while and just create some freakin art. I never really go into much depth when I go to work, it’s mainly just my face routine, mascara and some lipstick. On days when I don’t work/ don’t have to clean my house, you betcha I’m getting glam af for no reason at all. I love to see how products can truly magnify the existing beauty in everyone. These are all my true and honest opinions, I would never lead y’all astray. *Affiliate Disclosure.

I start with a moisturizer, lately I’ve been using Tarte Maracuja Oil to moisturize my face. I let it sit for while and soak into my skin before I begin actually applying makeup. I bought the smaller size thats $16 to test out but there is a bigger one that retails for $48. I use to be skeptical about oils but the more I use it the more I fall in love and it seriously makes my skin so soft and glisten. I know a lot of people with oily skin don’t like to use oils or moisturize but that honestly the biggest mistake you can make. Over production of oil is your skins way of telling you that it is sooo thirsty. Give it a drink lol.
I always always always prime my face. Always. My favorite primer is a cheapie $6 one by E.L.F. I’ve posted about it before but it makes my pores disappear, it’s the E.l.f. Poreless Primer. It creates a smooth canvas for my foundation and the rest of my makeup.
Next step is obviously foundation. I’ve been loving Fenty Pro Filter Foundation it creates such a flawless smooth finish that isn’t heavy or caked on. I actually ordered this Anjou Makeup Brush Set from amazon for $19.99 and it’s been amazing. I have a hard time spending money on brushes, but still want a nice blend and brush and these have actually been amazing for the price. I blend my foundation in with one of the bigger ones in this set and it turns out so smooth and airbrushed.
On days I didn’t get much sleep or need a little more I use Tarte Shape Tape to clean up any look. This seriously is so amazing it is totally creaseless and really buffs out well into pores and it looks like you don’t have any at all. I use a small short brush to blend this in as of right now! I usually use a blender but my son thinks there fun to eat sooooo I he took my last one and I haven’t got a new one. *he doesn’t actually eat them he just rips them to shreds sooo yaaaa have kids they said ;)*.
On top of allll that we got going on so far, my favorite step and most necessary in my opinion is powder. I do not like looking or feeing shiny. I just can’t stand it. I alway set my makeup with Too Faced Peach Perfect Setting Powder Yalllll, this stuff. It smells sooo good like I could literally eat it. Im not gonna admit to whether or not I’ve actually tasted it before. I’m not kidding not only does it smell good but it sets your foundation so beautifully you guys like I can’t explain how it makes me feel. It seriously seamlessly blends your makeup together and infused an airbrushed look into your skin and is so refreshing. I absolutely love it, I’ve had mine for about 5 months and haven’t even made a dent in it.
Onto bronzer, blush and highlight. My favorite Neapolitan look contains Hoola Bronzer, Milani Baked Blush, and this Glow Kit I apply bronzer first to the areas I want contoured, then obviously the blush on the cheeks and the highlighter above my blush, on my nose, and over my eyebrows. I’m seriously consider making a few videos which would be wayyyy easier to explain so if that is something you would like let me know in the comments.
I have tattooed eyebrows but I still touch them up lightly with the Anastasia Brow Wiz, this is perfect for fine lines and easy strokes on the brows. It’s my number one go to! It delivers amazing color and hairlike lines that look amazing.
I wear eyeshadow everyday. My favorite palette is Modern Renaissance because it blends so nicely and I love the looks it creates, but I could use just about any palette and make something out of it.
Finally, I finish off my look with some mascara and I have been LOVING Lancome Definicils High Definition Mascara. It can be built up which I love and it comes in a couple different colors. I just like black because thats the color of my lashes. It makes your lashes so full and lengthened, I really love it!!
Some days I wear lashes and eyeliner but for most days, I don’t. Only when I get reallllyyy ready hahah. I always set my makeup with All Nighter setting spray and it really does the trick so my makeup isn’t running off by the end of the night. It always looks awesome! I don’t sleep in my makeup but if I were too, this would have it lookin great even the next morning. On a good day I end up with something like this….I took this photo on my cell phone and brightened the exposure up a couple points on light room but other than that it’s untouched.. I never smooth or blur my skin. If you wanna know my new skincare routine, just ask!!
So I really hope you guys listening to me rant and rave about my current makeup routine. I am really considering doing videos on this so please let me know if thats something you would like to see. I really appreciate all of you who have supported me so far and I am so glad your hear with me. These are my true and honest opinions and I am happy to share them all with you. Let me know if you try these products and don’t forget to share/ pin this post!! xoxo,
