Recent: Every Day Go-To Makeup

You know when you get into those "set" makeup routines? Well, I've had the same one for about a month now so I thought it was only fitting to share!

With the exception of a couple products, mostly everything I've been using lately has been the same. When you find something that works it's hard to kick! 
NARS Sheer Glow is one of my favorite foundations. It lasts all day on my skin and gives me a naturally luminous finish - plus the coverage is buildable and not cakey. I've been testing out a couple new concealers lately and nothing compares to my Maybelline Instant Age Rewind! To set my concealer I've discovered the Ben Nye Banana Powder which instantly smooths and keeps my under eye area from creasing.

For the T-Zone area I alternate powders and recently got the Benefit "Hello Flawless" Powder - it's super velvety and pigmented! I feel like highlighter is forever the same, Bobbi Brown "Sandstone" is my go-to for sure! For bronzer I've been gravitating towards something a bit warmer. MAC's Mineralize Skin Finish Natural in "Give Me Sun" has the prettiest sun kissed finish. I top off my cheeks with a bit of NARS "Deep Throat" - a golden pink.

I've always got to have my Ardell or Salon Perfect Demi Whispie lashes. They fit my eyes the best out of any style and I can't even feel them throughout the day. Cooler tones have been my favorites to work with as far as shadows go lately. The Too Faced "Boudoir Eyes" Palette is one of my favorites. MAC's Extended Play Gigablack Lash is my go-to for bottom lashes and quick coats before applying falsies.

Brows are sooo important to me and it's no surprise that I stick with the Anastasia Dip Brow (because it's the best brow product EVER) I picked up a new shade recently (Dark Brown) and it's giving me life! So Obsessed. I don't like a stark white highlight under my brows so I go for the Sigma Brow Enhancer which is about a shade lighter than my skin tone for a natural brow highlight. Pinks and mauve have been the lip of choice and MAC's Pro Longwear Lip Creme formula is outstanding for long lasting wear and a creamy finish. My go-to shade is "Unlimited"
What are some of your go-to products? By the way - my liner is Kat Von D Tattoo Liner in "Trooper", totally forgot to photo that!


  1. I love this look on you! I recently tried out that NARS foundation and had to return it. It clung to all my dry patches so badly that I felt very self-conscious when I wore it. I did like the shade selection and was ecstatic that their lightest shade was a neutral undertone.. I might re-purchase in the summer when my skin is back to normal :)
