If you’ve been reading my blog for a while now, you’ll know that I love to keep my makeup routine simple and as au naturale as possible. I’m no makeup guru and to be honest, I have a really terrible time trying to apply any form of eye makeup aside from mascara. I was recently discussing some of my favorite go-to makeup products with a friend of mine, and thought I would share them with you guys too!
I like my makeup to have a glowing and dewy feel to it and believe that I’ve come up with a great no-makeup-makeup look that works well for people who like to keep their routine simple.
You’ve heard me say it before and I’ll say it again – SPF is so important. It’s the number one way to fight early signs of aging and to preserve youthful skin. I swear by Supergoop! products and this new Unseen Sunscreen is my all time favorite. I’ve been using the CC Cream for a year now, and think that they are one of the best skin care brands on the market right now.
Marianna Hewitt and Lauren Gores recently released their Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask and I was skeptical at first, only because I usually don’t buy into fads, but this mask is next level. I use both day & night and it leaves my skin feeling fresh, moisturized, plump and revived. This mask doubles as a great makeup primer and you know I love me a 2 in 1.
Like I said above, the Supergoop! products are a favorite of mine and the CC cream has been a staple in my routine for a while now. I love it’s light texture and medium coverage. I use a damp Beauty Blender to apply it and I feel like it gives my skin a dewy look while still evening out my skin tone and covering any blemishes I might have. I use the color Light Medium.
I have been a super fan of the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for a long time now, but the Tarte Tape Shape Concealer has become a new favorite in the last year. I go back and forth between the two, but I love how big the applicator is with the Tape Shape one. I use the color Light Neutral.
I’m all about the contour sticks and I really fell in love with the KKW Beauty one. I got it in the color Dark Creme Contour II. I like that it isn’t too orangy and it goes on really smooth.
This is another Supergoop! (and 2 in 1) product. I love how it gives my skin a natural flush of color without being heavy or cakey. It’s perfect for a day at the beach, running errands, or every day look.
I’ve been using this highlighter for years now and it’s safe to say it’s a staple in my daily makeup routine. It’s light and natural and blends in super easy. A little goes a long way so it last a long time too.
One of my all-time favorite mascaras. I go back and forth between this and Loreal Voluminous, but this has been the one I’ve been using lately. I’m really picky when it comes to mascaras and it’s never let me down.
