my everyday makeup routine
My everyday makeup is super simple and easy to do because I have a tendency to wake up thirty minutes before I have to leave. I use products that take a few seconds to apply and take minimal effort. This is pretty much what I do every single day (I omit eyeliner and eyeshadow if I'm really rushing like in five minutes I need to leave rushing)
First, I use my Elf flat top stippling brush to blend in my Elf tinted moisturizer in the shade nude beige.
I also fill in my eyebrows lightly with the Elf eyebrow kit in the shade medium. I use an Elf angled brush to do this.
I start with swiping my NYX NYX Above & Beyond Full Coverage Concealer. I rub it in with an Ulta professional concealer brush.
This step is only a sometimes thing. If I have time I will apply eyeshadow but recently I've just moved onto eyeliner at this point. When I wear eyeshadow, I apply my NYX cream eyeshadow pencil in the shade yogurt and iced mocha on my outer v.
I set this with a light pink shadow and a darker matte brown. I also smudge the brown into my lower lash line.
Most days I just wear eyeliner so I use my Elf black liquid liner to draw a slight cat eye.
Finish off the look with a generous coating of Wet and Wild mega glam mascara.
Because my eye circles are so absolutely dreadful, I have to apply more of the pot concealer. I also add it to any spots I might have.
I set my concealer under my eyes and my T-Zone with Rimmel's Stay Matte Powder with an Elf Kabuki brush.
And for an extra boost of life (let's be honest right now, I like to look like I got more than three hours of sleep!), I like to swipe a coat of NYC 16-hour smooch proof lip stain in the shade primrose pink.
And there you have it! It may seem like a lot of products, but I've been doing this look since junior year and I've gotten pretty fast at it. Like I said in the tutorial, I don't always apply eyeshadow but most days I wear my eyeliner just to give my eyes a bit more life and drama.
