Everyday Makeup Routine
Hi Everyone! Happy Sunday!
I hope y'all are having a great weekend so far. I feel like the weekends always fly by so quickly. Yesterday I ran a bunch of errands and I created this simple everyday makeup look that I normally wear during the week.
Lately my work weeks have been in full speed, which means I don't have a lot of time in the mornings to put on a ton of makeup. I wanted to share with you my go to products to create a simple everyday makeup look.
So let's get started! (*click on the images for links)
My first go to product is the iT Cosmetics CC cream in the color "light."
Hands down one of my favorite beauty products! I think this will forever be a staple piece in my makeup collection. If you haven't tried this product yet, you need to. There are so many great benefits to this product, and I think it works well for any age. It claims to give 7 products in 1:
*Brightening color corrector
*SPF 50 sunscreen
*Full coverage foundation
*Poreless finish primer
*Hydrating anti-aging serum
*Dark spot concealer
*Moisturizing day cream
The biggest benefit I notice with this cc cream is the color corrector. This covers so well. You can tell in the pictures below how well it covers acne scars and discoloration. I love this for everyday use because it's lightweight plus contains so many great skin benefits!
Next up is the Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer.
I can't get enough of this bronzer! I not only love the way it looks and applies, but it smells like coconuts! This bronzer is so creamy you almost can't believe it's a powder. It really does blend out well giving you a natural sun kissed glow. I actually use this to contour with.
I also took a fluffy blending brush and buffed this onto my eyelids and crease. When i'm pressed for time I will implement this step into my routine.
Elf Cosmetics Instant Lift Brow Pencil is a great product to add to your collection. Not only is it $2, but it actually works very well! I use this pencil for everyday use and then use my Anastasia dip brow pomade for special occasions.
This mascara y'all...It.Is.Everything. I have been using this mascara now for a few weeks and absolutely love it! This is the L'oreal Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara. You can find it at the drugstore for around $8. Just check out that wand! When it comes to mascaras, I'm picky about the wand and the formula. This mascara wand adds volume and length to your lashes. I really love the formula as well. The only con I give this mascara is that the formula does get a little clumpy over time. This tube will last a good 3-4 weeks before the formula starts to clump up. Other than that, I love it and definitely recommend you trying it. :-)
You guys, I'm obsessed with these butter glosses by NYX Cosmetics! I have 5 different colors and feel the need to buy every color. ("No Amy, you don't 'need' anymore lip products...")
The formula on these are wonderful because they are smooth, creamy, and non-sticky. I can't stand when lip glosses are sticky!
They glide right on my lips and help them to feel so hydrated and smooth. This is why I think they are great for everyday use for when you're at work, or if you're out and about running errands.
Here is the final look! It's simple, but feminine and pretty!
Let me know if you've tried any of these products. Are there any products you use in your everyday routine? I would love to hear about them! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!
