There are a handful of FAQ we receive daily via DM on Instagram, some of which usually have to do with sources for my makeup, and while I love answering you all there, I thought I would finally post a makeup routine roundup here where it can be easily accessed!
I try and keep things simple. I have sensitive skin- my skin either gets too oily, too dry, will break out easily, or even burn if I am not careful about the products I use. Actually, last year I had a reaction to an eye-bright eye liner where my eye started to burn and swelled pretty significantly… after a few Benedryl and a couple of days, it was back to normal but it was after that incident that I decided to stop wearing eye liner on my inner rims and to also try an all-natural mascara- which I found, and love!

(from left to right- I also laid out my makeup above in the order I apply it)
Concealer – I started using this concealer a few months ago and have been really happy with it- it’s not too thick, and not too thin and it covers well. I use this under my eyes, on my eyelids, and on any dark spots or blemishes.
Powder Foundation – I have tried both liquid and powder foundations. In fact, until 2019, I never even wore foundation, but ya know, hitting 30 and all, I figured it was time to start wearing it 😉 I have been really happy with this one- it covers nicely and doesn’t cause any irritation or breakouts.
Blush – I use to use a matte liquid blush but decided to go back and try a powder with a hint of shimmer in it and really love it.
Brows – the only thing I will use on my brows… absolutely one of my must haves!
Eyeshadow – I use this light brown eyeshadow on my upper lid by my eyelashes in place of eyeliner.
Eyelash Curler – the most asked about question I receive is about my eyelashes and this curler is an important tool in achieving how I get my lashes to curl like they do.
Mascara – this all-natural Almond Oil Mascara has been a game changer for me. I love that it is natural and the almond oil helps to strengthen my lashes.
Finishing Powder – this step is optional, but I like to lightly dust this translucent setting powder over my cheeks, nose, forehead and chin if I am going to be away from home all day or going to dinner at night.
Mascara – I use this mascara on my bottom lashes. I find that this mascara doesn’t lengthen which is great since I would prefer my bottom lashes to not look like spider legs!
Highlighter – I like to use this at the very end for a little extra glow. I apply a crescent shape on my upper cheekbone.
Lip Liner – My lips get dry and tend to chap very easily so I have never been able to really wear traditional lipsticks and even chapstick clumps and dries out my lips, so I have found that most days I just use a clear gloss (Vaseline) but on days where I want a little bit of color on my lips, I use this lip liner by applying it on my bottom lip, blotting my lips together and then applying the Vaseline on top.
Clear Gloss – thanks to my best friend for recommending this, I am officially hooked and don’t leave the house without this. It is so helpful to help keep lips moist without buildup from waxy chapsticks or lipsticks.
And that’s it! If you have any makeup questions, leave a comment below- I would love to answer them! Keep an eye out for my Everyday Skincare Routine coming to the blog soon!
