My Daily Face Makeup Routine

So I get a lot of questions from you guys wondering what foundation, blush, ect.,  I use on my face. Normally when I write about my eyeshadow look I never tell you about what face makeup I use, mostly because it’s pretty much the same every time and because I figured everyone has their own preferences. But I guess you guys are curious to know so here we go:

I’m a tweeker when it comes to what order I do things in, I guess u can say it’s an OCD thing. So I always do my eyeshadow first. The reason why is because whenever I do my face makeup before my eyeshadow I get fallout on it and I mess it up by touching my face when I pull my eye when doin eyeliner and things like that. Then I end of fixing it after I’m done, so why the hell would I do it twice when all I have to do is do the face makeup last. Come on now. Lol. I got hella kids I don’t have time to redo things.

That being said I always do my eyeshadow first. Then I take a baby wipe( I don’t really buy makeup wipes, I have kids so I have a whole closet of baby wipes, works the same for me) and I wipe all the fallout from under my eye.  Now I  do see some gurus on youtube putting tape on their eye to give them a straight edge to work with and then they peel it off when they are done with their eyeshadow. I don’t need to do that since im doing my face makeup last. I just wipe off the excess with my baby wipes in a straight swipe and it gives me that same straight line effect. Then I moisturize my face(even though I usually do it before my eyeshadow also. Lol. It’s an OCD thing). I use the olay regenerist line in case u guys were wondering. After that soaks in I use a primer. I use either Mac’s matte gel or Palladio foundation primer. Make sure to get under your eyes good, especially if u have wrinkles or fine lines. Ok here comes the foundation. I have tried a million different foundations. I like a few but the one I go to most is my Revlon color stay. I always carry a few different shades(and by a few I mean 5 or 6. lol) because I spray tan and who knows what shade i’ll be. I have a foundation brush that i love love love. It’s the makeupgeek foundation stippling brush and I think it was only like $15. It’s so soft and distributes the foundation evenly over my face. I used to use the Mac 187 stippling brush(like $45) but I like the makeupgeek one better.

So I dab the foundation on my face, then I take my brush and stipple it in. I don’t usually wear concealer, I don’t have dark circles or anything like that really, so I skip that. Then I take a powder to set it, I usually do bare minerals or i use MUFE(make up forever) setting powder. I only put that on my t zone where im more likely to be more oily.

I’m a huge bronzer fan. As you can tell I like to be tan. lol.  Bronzer gives you that nice healthy glow, even tho at times I can get a lil carried away with it. I like my bronzer to be dark cuz I can get pretty dark at times and who wants a bronzer that blends into their skin color, lol. I also like my bronzer to be matte. I have the Tarte bronzer in hotel heiress and I love it. Its kinda pricey tho. I hate to pay over $20 for bronzer because I go thru it like crazy(can u say addict). I also have tried the California tan bronzer and I like that one too. I first got that one at my tanning booth but now I see they have it on amazon as well. It’s still like $20 something so im still on a quest for a cheaper one that works well if any of you guys have suggestions. I ordered the NYX matte body bronzer on Ulta’s site but havent received it yet. I don’t care if it says body bronzer that ish is goin on my face. Don’t get me wrong I love tarte but I spend way to much for something that doesn’t last long. So when I apply my bronzer I take either an angled blush brush/fluffy brush or my mac 187 brush, which ever I can find faster, and I dip it in my bronzer and put that on my cheek bone, forehead and chin. I also get under the jawline cuz it makes my face look a lil thinner and who doesn’t want that. Then I take a blush brush and grab my blush and just put a lil on the apples of my cheek. I normally use Mac’s gentle or i also like NYX blush in Terre cotta or Sephora Blush me palette in Brun.

I finish the look with a cheek highlight. I’m really felling my Mac mineralize skinfinish one lately. The color is Soft and gentle. I just stipple that right on the top of the apples of my cheeks going in a sweeping motion toward my hairline.  Sometimes I use a finishing spray but not everyday. I like to use Mac’s fix + for that. And that’s about it. That’s my normal everyday face makeup routine. Enjoy guys!:)
