It’s finally Spring and I could not be happier! It’s so refreshing to experience warm weather and I love seeing the sunlight at 6:00 pm! With that said, I’ve been going a little more natural with my makeup just because I want to look really fresh and dewy on a daily basis. I’m sharing an updated everyday makeup routine in case you’re like me and enjoy switching things up based on the seasons! I’m focusing on making my skin as flawless as possible, without looking heavy. Also you can see that I’m choosing natural colors on the eyes, with peach-tones for my blush and lip color!
The first step in this routine is to apply a luminous primer all over my skin to give me a lit-from-within look. My absolute favorite one is the L’Oreal “Magic Lumi” because it evens out my skin tone and gives me a sheer glow, rather than a glittery or oily effect. Next, I apply my foundation and concealer with a damp beauty sponge, I’ve been loving the new pink one by L’Oreal, but feel free to use whatever you have on hand! I have been obsessed with the L’Oreal “Pro Glow” liquid foundation for giving my skin a luminous, natural finish. If you have oily skin, try their “Pro Matte” version, which is another one of my favorites. The Tarte “Shape Tape” concealer is one of my holy grail makeup products and definitely something you should invest in if you have dark circles! This product will not settle into fine lines and it has awesome, full coverage without ever looking heavy. I place my concealer in an upside down triangle underneath my eyes and I blend some additional dots on the center of my forehead and chin, just to even out the brightness. To keep the glowing look of the skin, but also control my oil, I set my entire face with the Too Faced “Primed and Poreless Pressed Powder.” This is an awesome translucent powder to set your makeup, without adding any additional coverage. Be careful not to add too many layers of this product, or you will end up with the unfortunate white flash back if you are using this powder during photography sessions! I also take the yellow shade from the Tarte “Tarteist” contour palette to set my under eyes and give them an extra layer of brightness! My favorite bronzer to use with this kind of look is the the Too Faced “Sweet Hearts Bronzer” in the shade, “Sweet Tea.” It is a neutral bronze color, so not too orange or too ashy. It has a radiant finish, which looks great in natural lighting! I love a super bright and shimmery highlight for this time of the year, so the Tarte highlight in “Stunner” has been my new obsession! This is by far the longest lasting highlight in my collection, it seriously stays on my cheeks for the entire day without fading! I’m so shocked by the pigmentation and blinding effect is gives my face. In the pan, it looks like it would be too dark for my medium skin tone, but once you apply it, you’ll see that it shows up beautifully! For blush, I used my new favorite Mally blush in the color, “Perfect Peach.” I think this is going to be so gorgeous once I have a deep, olive tan this summer. This is also very long lasting, which is an awesome added bonus!
For the eyes, I really want to keep it super simple and as neutral as I can! I love my Too Faced “Natural Matte” palette because it’s so easy to create a simple look from the color selection, it’s a no-brainer makeup item. I set my entire eyelid with the shade, “Heaven” to help my other shadows blend effortlessly. I blend “Honey Butter” into the crease to give subtle dimension. I took “Strapless” just on the outer edge to give the look a little extra drama. I also blended this shade on my lower lash line for cohesiveness! My lid shade is the beautiful ColourPop eyeshadow in the shade, “Lovely” and may I just say, I could wear this color every day and be perfectly happy. It’s super pigmented and gives the eyes just enough sparkle! I did black winged liner, per usual and used my Tarte “Rainforest of the Sea So Fine” liner. Feel free to not do eyeliner, or use a brown color to make the eyes appear more natural. I used one of my new favorite drugstore mascaras, the Maybelline “Lash Sensational” is super nice! It really separates and volumizes like a high-end mascara would! For the lips, I used my brand new Tarte “Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash” lipstick in the shade “Sunkissed,” which is probably my new favorite lipstick color and formula! These are so buttery and long lasting, perfect for spring and summer when your lips naturally feel more dry! I topped that off with all-time favorite nude gloss by Buxom in the shade “White Russian” to match the rest of my dewy makeup look! I didn’t include a photo, but I sprayed my entire face with the Urban Decay “All-Nighter” setting spray to lock my face into place and blend all the products with one another!
