My Everyday Makeup

August 9, 2021


 This isn't necessarily my no-makeup-makeup look because it's pretty close to my full face routine, but this is a quicker, easier makeup look that I can literally do in 6 minutes if I need to. I've been wearing this combo a few times a week for the past few months as I've been exploring a new city and meeting up with friends. I obviously use my favorite products, so I'll link them below because they are must-haves.


Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer 


Everyone knows about this but that's because it's one of the best on the market. It lasts forever and has the perfect amount of coverage to give an even complexion and still look natural/bare-faced.



Laura Mercier Translucent Powder

Another fan-favorite that's so worth it. I seriously have never used a better powder, case closed.



Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Gel

Lately I haven't been filling in my brows at all, just brushing and setting them with this clear brow gel and it couldn't be easier.



Hourglass Caution Mascara

One of my all-time favorite mascaras; it adds volume and makes my lashes look full but natural.



Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Ghost Palette

The name is a mouthful and this was a limited edition palette that's no longer available but it is the key to my daily look. I use the bronzer on my cheeks, nose, and jaw line and mix both of the blushes for a natural flush. After using the highlighter, I mix the finishing powders and brush them across my entire face/neck/shoulders for a full body glow. The current full-size Ambient Lighting palette isn't a perfect match, but the Ambient Lighting Edit Mini Unlocked Sculpture quad could create a similar look.



Dior Addict Stellar Lipgloss

My favorite Bite Beauty Dirty Chai lip gloss was discontinued and the Dior Lipgloss in D-Light is the closest dupe I can find so far. It's a rosy taupe with a little bit of sparkle and it's so easy to wear, I can apply it without a mirror!




Hourglass Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray

Urban Decay All Nighter is a cult favorite and a classic setting spray for good reason, but I prefer the Hourglass Veil Soft Focus because it doesn't have the chemical smell that Urban Decay has. It holds my makeup in place for hours and it feels extremely refreshing.
