Everyday Makeup Routine

Happy Monday friends! Today I thought it would be a perfect day to share my long awaited daily makeup routine. I love post like these because I'm actually super nosy and find it so fun to peek inside other people's "must haves". Hopefully through my favorites you might even find a favorite of your own!

First thing my makeup bag is from Victoria's Secret - I love this little pink poof. It's very travel friendly and holds a lot more than it looks. It comes in a few colors and is on sale right now too!

I've been using Covergirl's Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 Foundation in the shade 840 for years now - it's my abso favorite as a foundation. It does a great job helping to conceal my oily skin and any old acne scars. It also has SPF 20 which I love, skin care at any age is absolutely necessary!

Next I've been using Tarte's Amazonian Clay Waterproof Bronzer in Park Ave Princess to help contour my face and Maybelline New York Dream Matte Power in the shade medium to lock it all in. The bronzer especially I can't say enough good things, I received it in my July Ipsy box and have sworn by it since. I'll definitely be purchasing the full size once mine runs out.

Another must have of mine has been Urban Decay's Eyeshadow Primer Potion - the only thing I have to say about this is buy the sample size. Years ago I bought the full size and two years later (after it expired) I had only gone through maybe half the product. Ever since I've bought the sample size (at all of $12) and it makes the biggest difference in my eye makeup routine.

If you've been following along for a while now you'll know that I'm a huge fan of the Julep Maven program (leave your email below to get your first box FREE) and lately that's about all I've been using on my eyes. I can't seem to justify splurging on the Naked pallets - but their Long Weekend Eyeshadow Pallet I swear is even better at a fraction of the cost (especially if you include it in your monthly box).

Eyeliner wise I always go for a black liquid liner and I've been between Julep's Fluid Eye Glider for when I want a very precise line and Starlooks Pro Luxe Longwear Eyeliner Pen when I want a thicker  line. For mascara lately I've been using Clinique's High Impact Mascara in 01 Black. I'm definitely looking to try out a new one though so if you have any recommendations please let me know!

And that's about it - if you have any recommendations for products I should try out please let me know in the comments below. Have a great week everyone!
