My Everyday Makeup

Hey everyone!! So I've been wearing makeup for YEARS and I think I finally have a routine that works for me. I also will be doing a skincare one as well since I've learned what products work for me. Most of my makeup is very affordable because as you probably know, I do spend a lot of money on my clothes and I prefer to keep costs low in other parts of my life. Some products are on the pricey side but not most of them.

I would say the most important thing is taking care of your skin and figuring out what type of skin you have. I used to have very oily skin and ever since I started birth control, I noticed that my skin has gotten a lot drier. My t zone mostly gets oily now and my eyelids. Once you figure out what skin you have and you use products that are made for your skin type, your makeup is going to look better.

Primer - Too Faced Hangover Rx $34

I have used so many primers and I love this one so much. My mom gave it to me to try out and it smells amazing and makes my skin feel so fresh. It also keeps my t zone not as shiny and nourishes my dry skin. 

Foundation - Maybelline Dewy + Smooth $7.99

Y'all this foundation is my holy grail. I have tried probably every single drugstore foundation but I use this one the most. It stays on all day and doesn't cake up and matches me so well. If you have oily skin,  I would definitely recommend the matte one because I used to use that one when I had more oily skin. There is such a wide shade range and it's at such a good price. 

Concealer - Maybelline Fit Me Concealer $6.49

Can you tell I like Maybelline? This concealer is the exact texture for me. It's not too thick and cakey but still covers my under eye circles and zits when I have them. I have pretty clear skin and not a lot of redness but if you do, I would still recommend this one. 

PowderCoty Airspun Powder $5.85

So I use this to set my concealer and foundation and it's so GOOD. You get so much and it's so cheap. I use a beauty blender to apply it and that's it!

So Besame is on the luxury side but their packaging is so pretty!! I throw this in my purse when I got out and I use it for touchups when I get a little oily. When this runs out, I will probably use something from the drugstore but I like this one for now!

Eyeliner - NYX Epic Ink Liner $6.00 

If I'm wearing makeup, I'm doing a cat-eye with my eyeliner and I have been for years. When I find a product that works I rarely change it up and this is no exception. It's like a pen, not a brush, and so easy to do a cat-eye with and it does most of the work for you! 

Mascara Maybelline Lash Sensational $8.99

So I actually hate mascara and I find that it doesn't make a difference on my short eyelashes so I kinda just pick up whatever I see first and I usually just purchase this one. I usually always wear false eyelashes when I'm going out or taking photos but I feel like they make such a difference. 

PalleteColourpop Yes Please! - $20 

I don't wear as much eyeshadow as I used to and especially with Summer coming up, I'll probably be wearing less. But when I do eyeshadow, I love this palette!! It's so small and not too expensive. I usually put on of the lighter colors in my crease and that's it! I don't think Colourpop sells it anymore but I did find it on Amazon. 

So I don't really wear powder highlighter anymore because I don't like the way it makes my skin look but I love these liquid ones from NYX. Before I put my foundation on, I will put this on my face for a subtle glow. My favorite way to use these though is as an eyeshadow base and then putting powder eyeshadow on top, I feel like it lasts longer and makes the color pop. 

Brows NYX Tame and Frame $5

I live by this eyebrow product!!! I have used it for years and there is so much product, that I rarely have to buy another one. I will say it does dry out easily so if you have a setting spray, spray it every once in a while so it softens up. 

Blush Noodle by Colourpop $7.00

I love blush and this one is no exception! I mostly stick to pinks and I love this one! It's pretty pigmented and stays on all day. 

The other blush I usually use is this one from Milani! I love all their rose blushes and this one is a beautiful coral peach color. 

I love lipstick so so much but over the years I've realized that I don't like a lipstick that doesn't stay on my lips. I love to snack and I talk a ton so I need something I don't need to reapply a ton. These Maybelline ones are so amazing and come in so many colors! The one I put above is my go-to pink and my favorite red lipstick is All Day Cherry. I definitely need to buy more cause they're so good. 

So this lipstick from Colourpop is another one of my favorites, it's like a darker nude and isn't a super drying matte. I love wearing this one because it goes with any kind of makeup look. 

I hope you guys enjoyed seeing what I use when I have the energy to put makeup on! Maybe one day I'll do a tutorial when I have time.
