Daily Makeup Routine


Givinchy Mister Light / Amazing Concealer / MAC Mineralize Skinfinish

I get alot of questions about my beauty routine and wanted to share it with you! Here we go.
I start with the face. I tend to go super light with face makeup and just use concealer and
mineral powder. Next it’t onto the eyes. I stick with neutral shadows and create contours with the
darker brown tones.Then I use a little liquid liner and mascara to finish off my cat eye look.

These days, I always define my eyebrows with this pencil.I use highbeam underneath the arch of my brow for a hint of sparkle. It works well dabbed on your cheek bones too!

And then there was lipstick. I almost never leave the house with out it! A key trick that I learned
from Keiko was to use a primer underneath my lip color. It helps the color stay on and LAST.
Kind of changed my life. And there you have it! My daily makeup routine in photos.

    Jill @ dollars-or-cents - Thanks for sharing! I have a pretty similar routine, but I’m still scared of lipstick! Also, my skin doesn’t like High Beam for some reason :(ReplyCancel

    Lola - Fantastic! I am with you on the minimal face makeup – I hate the cakey feeling of foundation or even some tinted moisturizers you find these days. I use concealer and just a light powder to set it. I find the less makeup you use on your face – the less you need. Love the shadows you use – I do basically the same thing too :) I am a little less adventurous with eyeliner and lipstick though – I stick with gloss ! Thanks for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Naomi - Thanks for this! I’m always interested in what makeup people prefer. Have you heard of Birch Box? In short, they send you make up samplers from top brands every month for $10/mo. It sounds like a good way to get to know the products you’ve always wanted to try but are too afraid to take the plunge before testing.ReplyCancel

    Lola - PS – any suggestions for concealer? I am currently using MAC’s but a friend raved about Kat Von D’s. How do you find yours? Thanks!ReplyCancel

    Jackie - Wow, this is kind of strange, but Mac’s “Dainty” and “Peachy keen” are the exact two blushes that I use! They’re the only ones I have at the moment…ReplyCancel

    Lin - yes, I use Kat Von D concealer, it’s my absolute favorite, and I’ve tried many…it’s very simple to use. My routine is very simple,moisturizer and argan oil, Argan color stick blush(petal pink), Kat Von D concealer, Benefit dandelion face powder to set the concealer, then a bit of eyeliner and mascara, lipgloss or lip stain. =) I keep it simple as well. Most days I don’t even use eye shadow, it’s just pointless since I have black D & G glasses.ReplyCancel

    Bettina - Love when bloggers post their make-up routines! Think I’m going to have to try the MAC all that glitters, from the looks of your palette it looks like it’s a key essential!ReplyCancel
