The alarm goes off.
I do nothing. The second alarm goes off. I struggle out of bed, and go about getting ready for my day. Somehow I always feel like more of a human once my make-up is done. For work especially, I wear an everyday look again and again– something basic and professional. I thought today I’d share with you what my everyday go-to products are!
Foundation: Smashbox Camera Ready BB Water
I’ve really not been into foundation lately. It’s hot! This light formulation lets my skin breathe and still has enough coverage to handle days when my skin isn’t looking its best!
Nothing brightens my under-eye area like NARS concealer in shade vanilla– it’s just the perfect color for me. For the cysts that have been popping up on my chin or the odd zit here & there, Boi-oing is high enough coverage to make them disappear.
I bought this completely randomly, but I ended up loving it for a finishing powder. It’s colorless and locks my foundation & concealer down for hot days.
Bronzer: Benefit Hoola
Now that I have a bit of a tan, Benefit’s Hoola is perfect for a little bit of contour and a little bit of warmth. The accompanying brush is nice for contour, but I like to use a larger brush for bronzing.
Eye Primer: Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
This is my go-to eye shadow primer. I wear the original formula– it’s light, colorless, and keeps my winged eyeliner in place.
Eyeliner: Tarteist Double Take Eyeliner
I’ve discovered a new favorite. Tarte’s liquid eyeliner is my new go-to for my daily wings that, at this point, are just part of my face. It is waterproof, but I find removal a lot easier than my previous favorite. I love the pencil side too– it glides on easily and lasts longer than any pencil that has graced my waterline.
My lashes are so sad, I can’t go anywhere without mascara. Benefit’s primer has been a god-send. It’s brown, so it darkens my light lashes while lengthening and separating. Paired with Roller Lash, I got the curl and length I need to make it look like I have lashes!
