Makeup Products Made Easy

Hi!It's really only fitting that my first ever makeup post would be all about how to make yourself look glam without it being complicated.If I'm being real with you guys, which I always am BTW, I will say that I use really affordable products and it takes me less than ten minutes a day to do my makeup. Before you decide to stop reading this post all together (ha!) let me just say that I looooove playing around with makeup looks but I am not in the season of life where that makes sense for me. I'm in the season of life where I rejoice if I have any form of makeup on my face. So there's that.I have some go-to products that I've been using fo-evuh and I think you might like them too! So we will start with a product run down and then if I get real brave and find a steady hand to record me (sorry, toddlers need not apply) then I will do an actual tutorial for y'all! Stay tuned. Or don't. I make no promises.So for starters, I use a product called Nerium in the morning and at night. It's a completely natural anti aging skin care line and I have used it for a long time. I love it. My sister and my mom are both in the company so I can hook you up if you want! Before I apply my makeup, I use the Day Cream.I use my beauty blender to spread my foundation. I used to just use my fingers but I found that I was breaking out a lot more. Turns out the oils in my fingers getting on my face weren't making magic happen. I've noticed a huge difference since using the blender. It's amazing!I start out with my base foundation. MAC foundation used to be my go-to but I recently switched to this much cheaper alternative and I'm loving it! It's perfect for oily skin (me!) because it gives a matte finish. I apply the foundation onto the beauty blender and then spread it all over my face and eye lids.I use an angled brush and do a quick contouring under my cheek bones, around my hair line, under my chin, and on each side of my nose with the darkest color in my contouring palette. I've only ever used this contouring palette and I love it. It's lasted me almost two years so I definitely think it's worth the investment! I use another brush to take the lighter shade and highlight around where I did the darker. Speaking of highlighter, this is one thing that I've started using recently and absolutely love! I typically just apply a little bit under my eyes near the top of my cheek bone but it adds such a pretty shimmer if I want to glow a bit more.I use this blush  and I don't really think I ever use enough. When I was in high school, an older lady at church told me I needed to wear more blush because I looked sick. #rude That's it for the face! I like to use a setting spray real quick and then move onto the eyes.I apply this eye primer before I do my eye brows so it has time to dry. I will say that primer makes ALL the difference in the world with my eye makeup. This one is not expensive and it lasts forever!Matt gave me this new Naked Palette in my Easter Basket and it's definitely the best I've ever used!! The colors are just perfect if you're trying to achieve a smoky eye, which I pretty much always am. I put the color "sin" all over my lid then I apply "toasted" across the bone. I add "hustle" in the corner and will also use this color to smudge my liner underneath if I'm doing evening makeup. I use a liquid eye liner on the top, and if you're at ALL intimidated by liquid liner, this is the one for you! SO easy to use! I finish up with this mascara. Literally the most amazing!I finish off with my brows because, thanks to my grandmothers genes, I have the lightest eye brows known to man. I use this pomade and it's perfection for blondies!If you have any questions, let me know. I'm still pretty new into the whole "sharing my makeup routine" thing so y'all are troopers for powering thru with me!I hope it was helpful! If it wasn't, then at least maybe you feel even more confident about your makeup routine! Ha![showshopthepostwidget id="2683114"]
