I love reading about people's daily beauty routines. I love knowing what other people do to their faces each day, because I feel like I always learn something new and want to add something new to my routine. Because I love these kinds of posts, I thought I'd share my daily beauty routine.
First things first, I use Honest Revitalizing Mist, followed by BeautyCounter Uplifting Day Cream as my moisturizer, immediately after I shower and wash my face. I then prime my face with Laura Geller Supercharged Spackle primer. It's the only one I've used so far that doesn't turn my face into an oil slick under full-coverage foundation.
For foundation, I use Kat Von D Lock-It foundation applied with a damp BeautyBlender (this is a knock-off from Ulta). I forgot to include it in my photos, but I also use NYX HD Concealer in Ivory for my under eye concealer; for $5, it's the best concealer I've ever used and a perfect shade. I then use an e.l.f. Kabuki brush to apply e.l.f. Perfect Finish H.D. Powder.
For eyeshadow, I use either Urban Decay Primer Potion or Too Faced Shadow Insurance on my eyelids to prime them. Like the rest of my fact, my eyelids are oily and while neither of these primers are perfect (my eyeshadow tends to be gone by the end of the day no matter what I do), they work pretty good. I then usually use eye shadows from the Too Faced Power of Beauty Palette from Nikkietutorials or Naked 1 (or both!). I have been using the Too Faced Sketch Marker for my winged liner lately, because I'm trying to train myself to like felt tipped eyeliners.
Once I have my eye look on, I use my Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara in purple; I love this mascara that I got from the Power of Beauty palette. It's purple, but it's a very subtle purple and still quite dark. It adds just a little bit of interest to a nude or brown-toned eye.
I typically use Wet'n'Wild Pearlescent Pearl blush (or one of the blushes in the Too Faced palette) and a highlighter from my e.l.f. Contour Palette; I apply blush with my kabuki brush and then highlighter with my damp BeautyBlender.
At night, I wipe my make up off with a damp cotton ball with a little bit of Clean & Clear toner (the pink kind). I then use Sephora Cleansing water to take off my eye make up. Then, I wash with Up & Up brand Cream Cleanser and moisturize, again, with my Honest spray and BeautyCounter face cream.
