My Makeup Routine

I do not typically wear a ton of Makeup on a regular basis. I have always been a less is more kinda girl. So when thinking about what to share with you guys I decided to give it to you straight.

Now keep in my this is my basic Makeup Routine. I do have other stuff I add in from time to time like foundation, eye shadow etc but this is usually what I wear when I leave the house.


To start out with I always do Mac concealer under my eyes. Then I use Cle De Peau concealer around my nose, in spots that need touching up and generally several places :)

Up next something to brighten my face: Smashbox Photo Op Under eye brightener all around my eyes. Sometimes I sub this for benefit high beam.

Then I use Tarte Powder Foundation. MY FAV EVER! Its so light and really gives great coverage and glow.

Next I use any one of my 500 blushes but lately its been NARS Deep Throat highlighted by NARS Albatross.

I use Stila very black waterproof liquid liner and usually buxom Mascara as of late. I got this one in a Popsugar Must Have box and its been a fav since.

Next I use this lip scrub that I adore followed by either a gloss or if I want to be fancy this Revlon Raspberry Bite lipstick.


The whole thing takes me about 7 minutes at most. No joke. Even if I add in more stuff I usually dont spend more than 10 minutes on my Makeup Routine.

I would love to hear what you use in your Makeup Routine as I am always looking for new things to try!
