Updated Makeup Routine

Hi Everyone! I have been getting a lot of questions about my makeup, what I use, and how I use it recently, so I figured I would answer all of your questions here!

I also posted a video of how I use all of these products! Just click HERE!

I recently changed it up about 2 weeks ago and I am loving both how my skin looks and feels with makeup and how it reacts to it after I take the makeup off!

My Skin

I have dry, combination, acne-prone skin for reference. So if you have this kind of skin, then the face makeup I use is the stuff for you! I will link everything I use throughout this post, so don’t worry if you want to shop while you read!

Let’s Get Started!

Face Prep:

To prep my face before I even apply makeup, I use the Tula Discovery Kit. I am telling you guys, this kit has changes my skin for the better!

I have recently been using the Elizabeth Mott “Thank Me Later” face primer. It claims to be Pore-minimizing, Mattifying, and Long-lasting! I got a small sample in an Ipsy bag a couple months ago, and it has lasted me so long. The smallest amount goes a long way!

My skin type: I have dry, acne-prone skin, so I like to wear full coverage foundation that keeps my skin hydrated. The Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation is the foundation that I always have some of because it is my staple, I wear it in shade Light-Medium Neutral. Recently I have been trying to expand my foundation horizons and found the Nars Natural Radient Foundation in Deauville or Vienna, or I mix the two depending on how tan I am. This foundation is full-coverage for a minimal amount of product. It stays on and doesn’t define some lines that i have on my face either! It also doesn’t feel like I am wearing a full coverage foundation! unadjustednonraw_thumb_125 unadjustednonraw_thumb_126 Shop Now!                                                                      Shop Now!


So I wasa huge fan of the L’Oreal Age Rewind concealer and then I hopped on the Tarte Shape-Tape concealer and I LOVE both, so I still totally recommend those, but since I descovered the Maelle Secret Illuminator, I am OBSESSED. It covers what I want it to cover and it BRIGHTENS my face where I want it brightened. I cannot recommend this stuff enough.

I don’t do my eyeshadow as much as I used to, but when I do, I use the original Tartlette Pallete by Tarte and the Jaclyn Hill x Morphe pallete every time. I highly recommend these!

Top 5 Places to Shop Online

I was never an online shopper until I began this blog, but now that I have discovered the world of online shopping, there is no stopping me now!

There are a couple of places that I LOVE to shop online at. This is HUGE for me when it comes to fashion, since I am one of those people that has to go shopping for hours since I’m so picky about what I think looks good on me (ya feel?)

Let’s get started!

American Eagle

American Eagle Jeans have my heart. If you know of any sites or places that are long enough for a 5’11” girl, I’M THERE. For reference, I am 180 lbs and 5′ 11″ and I usually wear a size 12, extra-long pant! So American Eagle is my place. My current go-to pair from them is their AE 360 NE(X)T LEVEL SUPER HIGH-WAISTED JEGGING which is also ON SALE right now! I HATE jeans, but these feel just like leggings.


Aerie is also amazing when it comes to fit. Their swimsuits come in tall and petite sizes (torsos are so annoying sometimes), and their panties and bras are SO comfy. All of their bras, bralettes, and swimsuits are 40% off right now too!! I also just so strongly support what Aerie stands for when it comes to empowering every body-type, so that in itself makes me want to shop there!

The Pink Lily Boutique

This place is a new discovery of mine and I am OBSESSED. Their clothes are so cute and they always have ongoing sales. Their transitional pieces from winter to Spring are so stinking’ cute.

Maelle Beauty

So I did recently become a Maelle Maker, but the reason I talk about this company so much isn’t because I’m affiliated with it. I just really really love their mission and their products. Their mission is to create a community-built company that supports and empowers each other, and along the way make some amazing makeup. You guys, these products are seriously amazing. I can’t say that enough! My $10 off coupon code is ANNA10 if you ever want to try it out for yourself!

I am always gonna be a Fabletics gal. Their products are so amazing and comfy, their leggings are seriously so great for any activity, and they are reasonably priced. PLUS!! your first two pairs of leggings are only $25!!

New York & Company

Definitely another tall-girl win with this place since they also have tall sizes! (praise!) They also have such cute work and everyday clothing items. & their sale section is usually LIT. Right now they are running a 40% off EVERYTHING SALE!

I know I only gave you five places, but these are the places that have never let me down and I wanted to share with you what I think is the best of the best! Let me know if you make any purchases and what you think of this post!
