Makeup Routine

I always enjoy reading everyone's morning make-up routine and thought it was time to share my own! Honestly my routine is constantly changing, but for now this is what it looks like:

1. Aveeno Positively Radiant Tinted Moisturizer
No matter what, the first thing I do each morning after washing my face is to apply this tinted moisturizer by Aveeno. This stuff is wonderful and I usually wear this product alone during the summer with no foundation. 

2. Bare Minerals Concealer
I use this concealer whenever I break out or when my skin decides to look a bit red in areas. Unfortunately since my skin is so fair the shade that I use is always out of stock at the store. Good news is that this stuff lasts forever!

3. L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
I apply this foundation all over my face. I use W2...I know, I know super fair skin!

4. L'Oreal True Match Liquid Foundation
Since my skin is so fair, I actually use this darker shade (C3) as a bronzer for my cheek bones, the sides of my nose, and my temples. It creates a really nice and natural shadowing effect. I JUST started using this foundation as a bronzer after seeing it done on one of Kandee's blog make-up videos. Kandee mentioned that she does this because no one's face is composed of just one  shade which is brilliant! Since I've tried this technique, my make-up has looked WAY more natural and not painted on.

5. Physicians Formula Mineral Wear Blush: Rosy Glow
I put a small amount of this blush on my cheeks sometimes when I need an added boost of color! It's a very pretty light pink color, a perfect "rosy glow" look!

6. Bare Minerals Eyeshadow: Celestine
I don't usually put any eyeshadow on my lids but if I do I tend to use this shade. It's super light and just adds a very light shimmer! Since my skin is so fair, I try and keep my make-up super simple.

7. Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner: Black
This is another "sometime" item. I use it when I want my eyes to stand out. Please only line this along your upper lash line!!!!

8. Great Lash BIG Mascara : Brownish Black
Love, love, love this brand! Absolute best affordable mascara.

9. Soft Lips Chapstick: Mint with a hint of vanilla
Love this chapstick! 

I hope you enjoyed reading a handful of my make-up must haves! I tend to try products that are recommended by other as well so please (!) if you have any that weren't on this list tell me, I'd love to try them out!

Have a lovely day :)
