Hi everyone, so I know this isn’t the type of post I normally do, but I kind of wanted to show you guys my makeup routine. This is typically what I would wear on a summer day or if I was going somewhere. For school, I’d normally just throw on concealer & mascara just to feel put together. But this a natural makeup routine for “glam days” or just for when I feel like it.
I can’t show my face on here, so I’m just going to be naming the products I use, the order I use them in, and how I like them.
DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A BEAUTY GURU!! I learned how to do my makeup by looking things up and experimenting. I just thought it would be a fun post to do, and that you guys would maybe like to see how I get ready in the morning. Also, I’m definitely not saying that everyone should wear makeup or anything like that. Again, this post is just for fun. You are beautiful, with or without makeup!
^^This is everything in my makeup bag. Of course I don’t use ALLLLL of this on a daily basis, though.

SO, what I like to start with is prepping my face, typically just with a moisturizer. Then I use my Real Techniques expert face brush to put on a light layer of foundation. Then I take a small concealer brush (lol it’s from dollar tree) and put on concealer (that’s the little purple jar) under my eyes and on any spots. I then blend it out with the same brush I used for foundation. Also, sometimes I’ll skip foundation and go straight for concealer.
I then use my dollar store blush brush (hey, it works) and my tarte blush in the shade ‘paaarty’ to dust a bit of color onto my cheeks. And if I want to use highlight, I’ll probably use the same brush and my e.l.f. highlighter in the shade Blush Gems. I honestly don’t wear highlight enough to get a separate brush for it.
I know there’s an eyeshadow palette in there, but I really only use that on special occasions, and not for everyday makeup, so we’re skipping eyeshadow.
Thennnn, I finish the look off with my Maybelline Mascara. I had the Lash Sensational mascara before this, but I ran out of it and had to get a new one. I decided to try something a little different and I ended up liking my previous mascara’s wand better since it was curved, so I cleaned it up and stuck it in my new mascara.
I also have the travel size version of benefit’s roller lash mascara, but since it is such a tiny bottle I don’t use it all the time. I do love it though, it gives my lashes so much length and a bit of a curl, and it’s natural looking.
I rarely use lip gloss/ lipstick, and normally just use baby lips lip balm, but when I do, I’ll usually use the L’oréal Infallible lip gloss in a pretty mauve shade, and I like this because it makes my lips, well, glossy, and it’s a gorgeous color.
That’s it for my makeup routine, I hope it was fun to read! Let me know if you’d like to see more posts like this.
