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 usually use the Tarte blush in “quirky”, but I started using the Kaliedo Cosmetics blush in “Caroline” and I have been loving it! This one is under $10! unadjustednonraw_thumb_12a

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! Check out my video to see what I use in these palletes! unadjustednonraw_thumb_12d unadjustednonraw_thumb_12e Shop Now!                                                              Shop Now!  


I love Better Than Sex by Too Faced, but the two that I have been loving even more lately are the Lash Paradise by L’Oreal and the Above and Beyond Mascara by Maelle. unadjustednonraw_mini_12f unadjustednonraw_thumb_130 Shop Now!  Shop Now!
