To start my daily routine I cleanse my face with Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash, which I got to try thanks to influenster! I love how refreshing this feels, my face feels soft and clean. It also smells delicious! I then move onto moisturizing, priming, apply foundation, powder, blush, and bronzer to my face.
My next step is moisturizing I just bought a new moisturizer from philosophy. It's the first product I've tried from them and I can say so far I love it. It's the Take A Deep Breath Oil-Free Energizing Oxygen Gel Cream Moisturizer. WHEW say that five times fast. Despite the super long name this product leaves my combination acne prone skin feeling amazingly soft and does not make me oily.
I used to not wear a makeup primer, but I find that when I have long days it's an absolute requirement, especially when I go from school for 8 hours to work for 8 hours. I'm currently using my Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector SPF 25+ in Opal which isn't technically a primer, but I think it works just like one while giving me a shimmering sun kissed glow. I love this luminizer, it gives me a natural glow and doesn't make it seem like glitter threw up on my face. I know you have seen someone who looks like that! It comes in four different colors so there is one for your skin color. I apply it all over my face, but if you just wanted to highlight you can apply it in your specific areas.
Next step is foundation. I'm in love with my Make Up For Ever Mat Velvet + Matifying Foundation. It's a full coverage foundation and leaves my skin amazing all day! It is very matifying so I like to add the luminzer under it so I don't look flat and fake.
After that I apply my COVER FX Pressed Mineral Foundation powder to set my foundation. On day's when I don't have time I apply this over my moisturizer and skip the foundation and because it is buildable and I can get pretty decent coverage.
Next comes bronzer. I've been using the Cargo bronzer in the shade medium for a long time. It lasts forever and gives me a beautiful sun kissed glow.
Then comes blush. I've been using Rimmel London's Lasting Finish Soft Colour Mono Blush in pink rose. I love how it is buildable and I can go from a more natural look to completely obvious.
I've been obsessed with new mascara I received in my iFabbo goodie bag. It's the Measurable Difference Lash Amplifying Liquid Lash Extension it's a three step process where you apply mascara, then the white lash extension, then mascara again. I have to say this mascara gives me the most volume and definition and length of any mascara I've used. Normally, I hate mascara's that have the white extensions, but this one is covered easily and really works.
|Not done covering my under eye bags, but look how long and voluminous my lashes are!|
Overall, I'm really happy with the makeup products I use. The products are easy; however, some are expensive. In my opinion every product is worth the money to make me look and feel beautiful.
