Everyday Makeup Look

I often get asked, "What is your everyday makeup?" on Instagram so I thought I would do a blog post on it! 
1) Clinique Stay Matte Foundation: I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I previously used Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer, but it just didn't keep from skin from getting shiny. I really don't even use powder with this foundation because of how already matte it is, but if I really want it to last I use Makeup Forever HD finishing powder. This foundation does a great job of keeping my skin shine free all day. Plus, it is half the price of Laura Mercier! PS. The sephora 45 brush is amazing. It makes all the difference.

2) Nars Laguna Bronzer: I contour right under my cheek bones and swipe some on my temples and hair line. I just recently tried this bronzer and I can see how everyone is obsessed with it. It is matte, yet has micro shimmer in it making it flawless looking on your skin.

3) Nars Orgasm Blush: I really like orgasm blush when I am tan (which is pretty much all the time since I am obsessed with self tanner... Here's the one I love if you want to check it out) but on the occasion that I am not tan I don't really think the coral is the most flattering color!

4) Benefit Watts Up: I put this on my cheek bones, my cupids bow, and the bridge of my nose and then blend it out with my ring finger for a subtle glow.

5) Anastasia Brow Wiz: I used to only ever use brow powder because I thought brow pencils would be too unnatural looking. I was SO wrong! This is the best product for brows in my opinion. It is so easy to put on and by using the spool end when you are done you have perfectly natural looking brows! 

6) Urban Decay All Nighter: After I am done with my face makeup, I spritz my face with about three sprays of this setting spray. It really locks in your makeup and prevents you from having to touch up through out the day.

7) Urban Decay Eye Primer in Sin: This is truly one of those products I can't say enough good things about! It makes my eye shadow look so much more pigmented because it is already shimmery. I wear this everyday and can not do my eye makeup with out it. Seriously, TRY THIS PRODUCT. You will not regret it. It is amazing. Plus, I have had my tube for over a year and there's still a lot left!

8) Eyeshadow: When it comes to eyeshadow I usually use two different palettes, Naked 3 & Lorac Pro "mini palette." I got the Lorac palette in a set with mascara and eyeliner. It's great for traveling because all three colors are super pigmented and can be worn day or night. Out of the naked palette I usually wear burnout all over my lid, limit in my crease going up my brown bone so my crease color isn't so harsh, and then factory in my crease. Then I take the lightest color from the Lorac palette and put a little of that on my tear ducts and on my brow bone. 

9) Bare Minerals Lash Domination: This mascara doesn't clump, adds length, and volumizes. What more could you want? 

10) Buxom Lip Cream: I have like ten of the buxom lip creams/polishes. It is the best lipgloss. White Russian is my favorite because you can wear it alone or over another lip product!
