Makeup Routine

I can’t believe this will be my first ever, start to finish makeup routine over here on the blog! This post has been a labor of love and over on stories I am sharing how I apply each product and the brushes I use, etc.! Down below I’ll share my exact color, links, and a little tidbit. 

PS this is my FULL make up routine for shoot days, nights out, etc. I change it up in some sort of variation to these steps all the time. Sometimes I will just do eyes, sometimes just foundation, sometimes nothing. Just depends but wanted to give yall all the steps!

Concealer & Foundation

Moisturizer: Charlotte Tilbury – Moisturizer before primer is key to hydrate your face! I have been using this one for a while but my bottle is about to run out. I have been grabbing any moisturizer lately since my skin has been so dry. Oh also be sure to use a spf during this step too! I use a random one!

Primer: YSL – I have tried Fenty, Becca, Nars, etc primers and I keep going back to this one. Nothing wrong with the others but personally I was just trying to find a more affordable alternative and I haven’t fallen in love with a primer as I have with this one!

Foundations: Estee Lauder  (Cashew) – I feel like it was time to change up my foundation since I have been using this for 4+ years so I have ordered LOTS over the past year to try and yall, nothing compares. This lasts ALL day and night and really makes my skin blurred out. I have also been wearing the shade Cashew for years and just re-order it all the time.

Foundation Stick : Hourglass (golden almond) – To make my foundation warmer and sometimes add a cream contour, I use this product! I know Emily from Champagne and Chanel uses this for her entire foundation and loves it!

Under Eye Corrector: Becca (light to medium) – Since I have bad dark circles under my eyes from my middle eastern background and this is a primer for my under eyes has really lightened and brighten my color! Courtney Shields recommended this and I love it!

Under Eye Concealer: Tarte (light) – have been using this for years and game changer! Again my under eyes use to be my biggest problem but this formula is amazing and lasts all day!

Brushes

Powders & Bronzer

Setting Powder: Fenty Beauty (butter) – I was using another translucent powder and made my under eye super super bright. I feel like this is more of a natural setting powder

Bronzer: Becca (Ipanema sun)- this does the job but it’s not a product I swear by! I haven’t found a bronzer that I have madly fallen in love with so if you have any recs, lmk in the comments below!

Highlighter: Becca (champagne pop) – I just use this for occasions when I want more of a summer glow!

Setting Spray: Urban Decay – you NEED this! It sets everything and will keep your make up lasting all day. I can always tell a difference when I forget to spray this on.

*Also I know I am missing a blush in my routine! I think all the ones I have tried are too red and rosy for me which turns me off. I’ll be on the lookout and let yall know if I find one!

Brushes

Eyes & Lips

Eyeshadow Palette: Urban Decay – I love this little palette Has all the summer glow colors!

Liquid Eyeliner: Kat Von D – I go back and forth for my top eye liner with this one or Stila. Both are great and last all day!

Pencil Eyeliner: Marc Jacobs (black) – For my water line I use this one and have been for a couple of years! I am to scared to even try something different lol

Mascara: L’oreal – my mom used this growing up so I ended up using it growing up and I just have stuck with it! Of course, I use other mascaras but this one is my tried and true.

Brow Gel: Sigma (medium brown) – I will ue this first to darken the brows and make them more natural! After that, I will use a pencil to shape the brows better!

Brow Pencil: Sigma (medium) After I brow gel them, I will shape them with this pencil. I have used a couple of other brands but this one has such a fine point that I love that I am in control of shaping them!

Lipliner & Lipstick Set: Mac – I finally found a lip combo that I have been obsesed with and lasts a while! This color is the ultimate nude shade!

* As far as my eye lashes, I use to put on strips but that got old lol now I just do eye lash extensions at my local Amazing Lash studio. I ask for 14inch glamourous!

Vegas Yellow Sun Dress

Dress: Vivi | Shoes: Qupid 

We just got back from Vegas and had the best time! We did lots of walking and it was hot so comfort was my number one thing but of course still wanted to look cute cause Vegas lol. This dress was so perfect for both of those things! It’s super lightweight so great for the hot weather and still such a statement piece. I paired it with these slides to give it a little pop of print and had no complaints walking all over the place! Both these pieces are from JCPenny so you know I got them at a great price! I found a lot of summer dresses on their site that are such a steal. I feel like everytime I shop at JCPenny they are having a sale or I can find a good top or pair of shoes that won’t break the bank. I also feel like it’s a great place to find gifts for the fam! They don’t just have great finds on women’s clothing, but I’ve also found so many things that are perfect for Ted or home decor for Mom!

Also, for those headed to vegas soon I have a travel guide that I have linked here!

Bumps & Bodycons

Dress: Leith | Shoes: Sam Edelman

Baby’s first Vegas trip was a success! Found the softest bodycon ever, yes still obsessed with bodycons during this pregnancy lol. I feel like I love showing off the bump because pregnancy is such a magical thing and really is flying by! Although, someone made a funny that it looks like I swallowed an egg lolol! Ordered this from Nordstrom so the quality is so great and under $50! It’s not see through at all and the perfect stretch material. My heels are also a Nordstrom find that I have had for years. They are the second most comfortable shoes I own(first is the odila I rave about) and I always find myself pairing them with so much especially when I have to be on my feet for a while. I think this outfit is all together perfect for a night out(bump or no bump) and I’ve linked some others below!
