Over the years I have gotten to a very basic place with my makeup routine. I probably wear it 2-3 times a week depending on what I have going on socially. Day to day, I just moisturize and call it a day and when I do wear makeup I try to make it super simple, use clean products and keep it to under 10 minutes. I go for a very radiant and glowy look. Below I am sharing my favorite products and method to achieve this look!
Here are the steps:
- Wash Face, Spray with Toner
- Apply facial oil or SPF moisturizer.
- Apply tinted moisturizer and glow cream.
- Apply bronzer (winter only).
- Apply Blush.
- Apply Highlight.
- Do the brows.
- Apply Mascara.
- Do the lips.
Next I put on a moisturizer. This is either a facial oil, SPF cream or both. For day, I usually go with SPF and for night I usually go with the oil. I use Cocokind Chia Facial oil and Bare Minerals Skinlongevity SPF moisturizer.
Next I apply a tinted moisturizer. I love Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue (I use the vanilla tone). This just evens out my skin really well while also adding a nice glow.
If I feel pale, I will add some bronzer along my cheek bones and temples. I usually only do this in the winter. I use Bare Minerals “Endless Summer” Bronzer shade “warmth” or Wander Beauty “costa rei” bronzer.
Highlight! Apply the high cheek bones, along the nose and a tiny bit on the temples. I LOVE the glowy look, so I usually go all out with this. I love Becca “opal” highlighter (not non toxic). I also love the Wander Beauty “On the glow” highlight stick and the Cocokind highlighters.
Next is brows. To me, this is the most important! Good brows go a long way. I use Glossier Boy Brow in “blond” to shape / darken them. I also like the Ilia Beauty Essential Brow Brush in Blonde Sometimes I just use a simple clear gel to put them in shape (they can get a little curly).
Mascara! I only wear mascara if I really feel like I need it because nothing is more annoying than taking it off. Lately, I have been loving the Ilia Mascara in Nightfall and the Lashtopia mascara by Bare Minerals. I also love the Unlashed Volume and Curl Mascara by Wander beauty. The Found beauty volumizing mascara is also amazing if I am going for a more dramatic look.
If I am going to a wedding or want a more dramatic look, I will do a smokey eye look. For this, I use the Bare Minerals “Gen Nude” Rose Eyeshadow Palette.
That’s it for now! Thanks for reading!
