I love these threads! My makeup routine:
Moisturizer: First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream — so nice and light, non-greasy, and absorbs quickly.
Primer: Clarins Instant Smooth Perfecting Touch — sometimes I just wear this alone on days when I don’t wear makeup. If I could only keep one item, it’d be this. It’s pricey, but worth every penny.
Foundation: Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua — I just wear a light layer to even up my skintone a bit (my cheeks can get rather flushed) and I love this because it lets my freckles show through. I don’t have that many of them, but I adore the little guys I have! 🙂 oh and I apply with a Beauty Blender (or if that’s dirty, my Shiseido Foundation Brush). It look me awhile to get the hang of the BB, but now that I’ve got it down, it’s great.
Powder: Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder — doesn’t look at all cakey/heavy.
Bronzer: Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil — not too dark, but really I just love the smell.
Eyeshadow: MAC Satin Taupe — goes really well with my brown eyes. I like Sable too.
Mascara: L’Oreal Voluminous — Cheap and awesome.
Setting Spray: Urban Decay De-slick — best shit ever. Keeps everything in place all day/night. My T-zone gets pretty oily over the course of the day, so I prefer this one to the All Nighter.
Lips: Dior Lip Glow — Gives me a hint of natural rosy color, which is all I want.
I’ve been on the hunt for a nice pencil eyeliner since my HG was discontinued awhile back. I tried using liquid but I hate it on me, it looks TOO perfect. I like a bit of smudge.
Only sometimes wear blush since my cheeks are pretty flushed as it is. Don’t really have an HG, but I got a deluxe Tarte sample in Exposed that I really like. Have never worn concealer, used any highlighters, or done anything to my brows.
