make-up monday; my everyday routine


I thought I would share my everyday make-up routine. Just the simple bare essentials!

The equipment:

First I start with my concealer and foundation:
 

First is the concealer, I use Maybelline Fit Me concealer in Sand, #20. Then I follow that with my foundation, Make Up Forever HD. For my foundation, I use a Angled contour brush from Sephora in #75.

Next is the bronzer and blush:
(oh hi! i see me in the mirror)

My bronzer is from Too Faced in Endless Summer. My blush is from the Laura Mercier palette. I like to mix the two blushers that it comes with. I use the same contour brush that I use for my foundation with both my bronzer and blush. 

Next is my eye shadow:


First comes the eye shadow primer from NARS. Then in the same Laura Mercier palette is my eye shadow. Sometimes I like to use all four. But my main two are Angelic and Pure Glow. When I'm using just the two, I use a Basic Shadow brush from Sephora in #14. If I add in Grace and Innocence, then I use the angled shadow brush from Sephora in #13 for those two.

Now mascara and eye liner:
(yes it's travel size. funny story to this is, i got it as a little gift from sephora for buying it in my birthday month, last june. but i forgot about it until about a month ago)


My mascara which is the life saver of the whole make-up world. I use two because one just isn't enough. I start with what I discovered is the best mascara ever, Benefits; They're Real. I plan to buy the full size one very soon. Then I go over my already applied eyelashes with Maybelline's Falsies Volume Express. Amazing mascara's!!!


I alternate between these two. The one I'm wearing today is Sephora Contour Eye Pencil in Black lace (another gift present from Sephora). This one is more of a crayon pencil. The other is Annabelle Kohl which is your basic pencil eyeliner. Both eyeliners are great and complete the eye look I like. Now I just need to learn how to achieve the upper eyelid eyeliner! Still haven't managed to get that right!!

Lastly is lipstick!

(sorry this is blurry!)

Today I'm wearing Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in #025, Peach. I absolutely love these and I have about three or four of them.


That's all for today!! I'm always looking for different make-up brands to try, and different products to use so let me know in the comments what make-up products you've been loving!
