I have a lot of time to myself in the mornings but I don’t like to spend much time on makeup these days. In highschool I did a full face almost every day. Why. I also over-plucked my eyebrows, but I’d rather forget about that.
I diminished my makeup collection to pretty much only the necessities so it takes less time. My everyday makeup routine is 80% Glossier. That’s a brand I’ve truly fallen in love with. Cruelty-free. Light coverage. Minimal packaging. Must I go on?
Moisturizing and priming come importantly before my makeup. I remember the days before I knew what primer was. Not a great time. I absolutely love the Smooth Viper Venom Micro Blur Fix Primer from Nip + Fab. IN. LOVE. My face is smooth and any makeup I put on top of it stays on all day. I’m currently in the market for a new moisturizer but for now I’m finishing up the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti Wrinkle Cream. It’s not my favorite, and it kind of makes my face tingle? In the bad, chemically kind of way. Wouldn’t recommend.
Okay.. on to Glossier
I was not a fan of the Perfecting Skin Tint at first because it has such a light coverage, but that’s exactly why I love it now. It makes an even skin tone across my face so it helps with any redness I have without changing the color of my entire face.
I love this shade of Cloud Paint – Puff. It’s so natural. I’ve always been really bad at putting on blush for some reason, too so this is just right for me. I also use it on my eyelids sometimes. The Cloud Paint is probably my favorite product right now.
Stretch Concealer is a must. I don’t get many breakouts, but when I do… Yeah. This really does the trick and lasts all day. It isn’t cakey – Hallelujah.
I use the Perfecting Skin Tint in medium, and the Stretch Concealer in light. I learned that through trial and error. The light Skin Tint will be my go-to once I start losing the rest of my tan I got from the beach. However, the medium stretch concealer is too orange-y for my skin tone.
But the most important part of my makeup routine?
I flick a little Boy Brow though my eyebrows to shape them up a tad, and boom. Done. Now that I finally learned how to properly use the Boy Brow, I love it! Personally, coming from using a traditional pomade every day, I had no idea what to do with this eyebrow spoolie, but it’s much more simple. The shade I chose is brown, but next time I’d like to try the clear.
I use a little more for a night out, but Monday through Friday, this is what you’ll see me in.
