My 10 Essential Everyday Makeup Products

Hi Friends!

Looonnnnng time, no chat! The Spring season was crazy busy for me between graduating college, moving back home and interviewing for potential job opportunities. All aside, I’m so excited to be back and chatting about all things beauty.

I don’t think I ever got around to sharing my everyday makeup routine with you all, which is CRAZY! My makeup routine rarely changes, so I figured it was time to share my holy grail products.

Here are my ten ESSENTIAL everyday makeup products!

STEP 1: Moisturizer

Palmers Coconut Water Facial Moisturizer

I received this product in a PR box and fell in LOVE. I appreciate that this product is on the natural side and almost all water-based. Every time I put this on I feel so refreshed, and like my skin is really soaking in all it’s goodness. Palmers is such an underrated brand for beauty products, so I highly recommend this product. I’m looking into trying their facial oil next…

STEP 2: Skin Tint

Pixi H20 Skin Tint Foundation

I’ve been using this product for FOREVER. I don’t know how I discovered this product, but I’m all for the natural appearance it gives off. I hate foundations in general because I always feel so cakey. Skin tints are my favorite substitution to the typical foundation, so if you feel the same, this product is for you!

STEP 3: Concealer

Glossier Stretch Concealer

This is another product I’ve been using forever because it’s so natural looking and effortless! My under eyes are very dry and sensitive, so this concealer doesn’t dry down or crack. It’s actually very hydrating and glowy; I’m obsessed. I won’t be switching this product out anytime soon.

STEP 4: Powder

Rimmel Stay Matte Powder

This product is pretty basic and gets the job done, but I don’t LOVE it as much as all the other products…I only really use this to set my under eyes some days. If you have a favorite setting powder that still keeps you glowy, definitely let me know!

STEP 5: Bronzer

Benefit Hoola Matte Bronzing Powder

I use a travel size version of this bronzer because a lot of product goes a loonnng way. This is a super pigmented product, but works amazing! It is a darker shade, so if you have lighter skin, you may want to test this out in-store before buying! I have an olive skin tone for reference and it works great! It’s definitely worth the hype.

STEP 6: Blush

Glossier Cloud Paint in Dusk

If I could only live with one makeup product for the rest of my life…this would be it. I’m OBSESSED with this product, and I want every shade. I swear this product makes you look so youthful, glowy, tan, and so much more. I can’t rave enough about this product!

STEP 7: Brows

NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder

This might be the oldest product in my makeup routine. I’m super protective about my brows and I don’t let anyone touch them, haha! I have a cowlick in my eyebrow, so this is the ONLY product that shapes them down for me just the way I like. I would be lost if this product is ever discontinued…

STEP 8: Eyes

Glossier Haloscope in Topaz

This product is so fun and versatile! It’s meant to be a highlighter (which I use it for), but I use it as my eyeshadow! Again, it gives off that natural and glowy eye look. I’m terrible at eyeshadow, so I just swipe this over my eyes with a little bronzer and call it good.

STEP 9: Mascara

Diorshow Mascara

This is the most expensive product in my makeup routine, but so worth it. I received this in a PR box and was hooked, so much that I bought it again with my own money. It retails for $29, but lasts for a long time! It’s so elongating on my lashes without giving that clumpy look. I also love that it never comes off on under my eyes or on my eyelid throughout the day. I find that drugstore mascaras are so messy on my lashes, so this product is a must for me.

STEP 10: Setting Spray

Mario Badescu Facial Spray

I can’t promise that this product actually sets your makeup, but it’s certainly refreshing! I use this as the last step in my makeup routine or as a pick me up during the day. I’ve tried all three scents of this product and you can’t go wrong with any of them. I’m interested in trying out more from Mario Badescu and I’ve heard amazing reviews about the drying cream for acne…
