My Everyday Makeup

My makeup routine really hasn't changed in awhile.  I occasionally switch out my foundation, but for the most part it's been the same for a few years.  I realized that I've never actually done a post about what I wear on a day to day basis (or at least when I'm wearing makeup).  

I start off by applying Maybelline's Baby Skin if I know I want my makeup to last a long time or if I'm doing something important where I want my makeup to stay looking good. Then, I'll apply Nars' Sheer Glow with a Sephora foundation brush followed by It Cosmetic's powder foundation if I want to set things (I usually skip this step).  Next, I use Nars' Laguna Bronzer which I've been using for as long as I can remember. 

I found my favorite blush from Sleek cosmetics while I was in London during christmas two years ago.  Since then, I've used it almost everyday (occasionally trading off with some other random blushes that I have), and I've barely made a dent! It's definitely worth the $15 for three blushes! 

If I'm wearing eyeshadow (usually only at night or on weekends), I always go for my Bobbi Brown eyeshadows.  I put Champagne in the inner half of the eye lid and Warm Taupe on the outer half.  I've never been a huge fan of eyeliner on me, so instead I use a navy eyeshadow from Bobbi Brown with a small eyeliner brush on my upper lid.  I don't put any eyeliner on my lower lid.   

Now, my first post on this blog was about mascara.  While I still love all of the mascaras that I mentioned in that post, my favorite now is definitely Too Faced Better Than Sex! It's really amazing and makes the eyelashes look so long and full!
