Happy Monday! We’ve got the Christmas music blaring, peppermint mocha creaming flowing and we’re getting into the holiday spirit today. I wanted to kick off the week with an updated everyday makeup routine because I have been getting so many questions about what I’ve been doing lately. I’ve shared in a few posts, but thought it would be great to put everything into one post for you guys to make it super easy to find.
I start with Charlotte Tilbury’s “Wonder Glow”. I like to apply it all over to add that lit from within look before I apply my foundation.
Sheer Glow Foundation
Then, I apply my foundation with a damp beauty blender! My all-time favorite foundation is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, but it’s on the pricey side, so lately I’ve been reaching for Nars Sheer Glow and loving it! It gives a really pretty medium coverage and I use the color “Stromboli”.
Then, I use my ride or die concealer, Tarte Shape Tape. I use the color “Light Sand” and seriously swear by this stuff! It is super full coverage but feels light on the skin.
Air Brush Flawless Finish Powder
I set everything with the Charlotte Tilbury powder in “1 Fair”. The key to this is making sure you use a damp beauty blender to set, so the powder doesn’t sink into any fine lines. This stuff is bomb and super finely milled, so it doesn’t make you look 98 years old! ha
I love this bronzer because it adds both warmth and glow! I use the shade “Luminous Bronze Light”, but it does come in several other colors if you’re much lighter or darker than me.
I’ve been very into cream blush lately. I’ve watched a ton of supermodel makeup tutorials lately and they all seem to use cream blush. My current favorite is “Formentera” by Charlotte Tilbury. Again, I just apply it with my fingers and use the warmth to really melt it in.
I just discovered this cream highlighter and it’s so good for that natural dewy look. I use my finger and dab it on the tops of my cheeks bones for the most natural look!
The Vintage Vamp Palette
I’ve been using the palette for years, but over the past few weeks it’s been my #1 most used color. I use the color “2 Enhance” in my crease and lightly use it on my lid for a smokey but day-time appropriate cranberry eye.
The Sophisticate Palette
This next step is a bit random but I have been obsessed! I use another Charlotte Tilbury Palette and again I only use 1 shade, but instead of using it on my eyes, I use the shade “2 Enhance” to contour my nose. It sounds so random, but I swear by this shade and have never found anything as perfect for contouring!
Kat Von D
I use Kat Von D’s “Trooper Black” liquid liner to create a quick little cat eye.
Cils Booster XL
I prime my lashes with the Lancôme Cils Booster XL. Ive used this beauty since high school and can’t do my lashes without it! It conditions them and make my lashes so much longer.
For my lashes I never use just one mascara. I always make what I like to call a mascara cocktail! Lately, I’ve been loving Loréal “Lash Paradise” and IT Cosmetics “Superhero”.
I tend to switch my lip combo up but have been wearing this combo pretty religiously! I start with this liner in the shade “Spice”.
