99.9% of the time when you see me wearing makeup these are the products I’ve used! I’m a creature of habit when it comes to cosmetics. Since my skin is prone to product-related breakouts, when I find something I love I continue to repurchase it. It’s a big reason why I rarely experiment with new primers, foundations and concealers– all the ones you see here I’ve been using for at least 6+ months. My foundation has been my go-to for nearly 2 years!
This is pretty much my exact daily routine. Sometimes if I’m in a time crunch I’ll skip the cheek contour and eyeshadow, but other than that this is what I always wear. A lot of these products I actually had my makeup artist use on me for my wedding day— that’s when ya know something’s good!
2021 updated favorites
I still love and use most of the below, however here are a few new products I’ve incorporated into my everyday routine!
Erborian CC Creme (shade Clair) – I love wearing this on days when I don’t feel like applying a full coverage foundation. It tones down redness, has SPF and lightly covers flaws. It also feels great and wear like a moisturizer!
Revitalash Hi-Def Brow Gel (shade Soft Brown) – this is my new go-to brow gel. It keeps unruly hairs in place and adds just a touch of color and definition.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer – this was my favorite concealer for years! I recently picked it back up again and remembered why I was obsessed. Great coverage and won’t crease or crack.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer (shade Luminous Bronze Light) – this is a new favorite bronzer that I’ve been loving! I actually wear it often as a blush. It’s the prettiest peachy bronze and give skin a sunkissed glow!
Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Lip Liner – another all-time favorite that I’ve been using regularly again! This lip liner is the perfect nude pink.
It Cosmetics Ombre Radiance Bronzer + Mega Fan Brush – I love this bronzer/highlighter and brush duo so much! The brush gives the perfect application.
