My *Updated* Makeup + Skincare Regimen
June 16, 2015
Last year, I shared my go-to products for my daily skincare and makeup regimen, but with the added events and travel this past year, I’ve learned a lot about which products work best for me and which ones I had to change out. Check out my old skincare regimen HERE to see the products I changed out and the ones that I continue to live by.
I’m excited to share my new, revised skincare and makeup regimen that works best for my normal to dry skin! I’m a busy girl that doesn’t like to fuss or spend a lot of time putting on makeup. With that said, I have created a quick and easy regimen that keeps my skin moisturized and my makeup from falling off.
If you follow me on this blog or social media than you probably have noticed that I like to keep things natural. I don’t look good when I’m all made up like a pageant queen, and I’ve found that subtle makeup works the best for my facial features. Not all products are made equal or work for everybody’s skin tone or features, so the best thing you can do is to test out these products to see if they will work for you.
The oldies, but goodies.
*I have used these products since high school and continue to love them.
To keep my skin even more moisturized and hydrated I use these 2 products at least once every week:
-this is a MUST for traveling and keeping your skin hydrated
Check out my go-to makeup products below that make my daily regimen quick and easy..
Foundation Primer: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – I use this only if I am going to be somewhere humid or for an event that I need my makeup to stay flawless throughout the night. It is the best!
Under-eye brightener + concealer: Tarte Creaseless concealer– one word: Amazing. This concealer is the perfect under-eye brightener that gets rid of bags, puffiness, and fine lines with an instant bright finish for flawless skin .
Foundation: Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation is a new find for me and I will never go back to any other foundation. This purchase is so well worth it and really makes my skin feel like silk. The silk finish creates a glow that no other foundation can.
Bronzer: NARS Laguna bronzer– I’m in love with this shade and type of bronzer because it gives a soft, glowing matte finish that looks natural. It also doesn’t have the glittery-gold effect that many bronzers have.
Blush: My favorite new blush is this NARS Dolce Vita color that is the perfect shade of pink for a daytime date or nighttime event. It’s the perfect color for any skin tone and is a bit more pink in person than the photo shows.
Eye Shadow: This Stila Eye Shadow Palette has the BEST colors to go from day to night! I haven’t used any other eye shadows since discovering this palette.
Eyeliner on the go: For my busy schedule I like to use Stila’s Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner for an easy to do stroke for my top eyelid. It creates a great cat eye in the matter of seconds!
Bottom lid eyeliner: Stila’a Smudge Stick Waterproof eyeliner goes on smooth and lasts all day.
Mascara: I have used Covergirl mascara for as long as I can remember and have always had long lashes because of this mascara. Covergirl Eyelights mascara has specific colors that go with the color of your eyes and the brush is perfect for long lush eyelashes. It is the only mascara that works for my lashes.
I’m not really a lipstick girl and prefer my EOS chapstick any day of the week, but a polished and complete look can’t be done without a solid or shiny lip.
Below are some of my favorite lip colors for any occasion and I really do alternate between these depending on the night or outfit. I do love a good red lip and the slightly pinker tones for an everyday look.
Stila Lip Glaze: “Guava”
MAC lipstick: “Girl About Town”
NYX Xtreme Lip Cream: Pinky Nude
