My Current Makeup Routine

I like having a routine in the morning because it's one less thing to think about before my morning coffee. That's why I love having my makeup routine down pat - less time to get ready means more time to slow down for coffee! Here are the things I use every day:

  1. Philosophy A-Z cream: I love this base because it's like a BB cream but better! If I have time in the morning, I will apply this with a foundation brush but when I had only minutes to spare, I've applied this with my hands with success as well. It's just an overall great base for your makeup. 
  2. Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Inked in Pink': With a very light hand, I apply this on the center of my eyelids. I find it gives a nice and subtle highlight. 
  3. Maybelline Color Tattoo in 'Creamy Beige': I apply this matte brown color to the outer edge of my eyes for a bit of warmth and to tone down the brightness of the pink eyeshadow. 
  4. Maybelline Master Precise Ink Eyeliner: I love this eyeliner! It really compares well with the high end eyeliners! It's dark, it stays on all day and it doesn't smudge! 
  5. Nars 'The Multiple' in 'Portofino': This creamy blush has lasted me for a year! I just dab a bit on the high points on my cheeks and blend it out with a brush. 
  6. Maybelline Lash Sensational Luscious mascara: I always apply mascara after giving my eyeliner some time to dry and set. I curl my lashes and apply this mascara. I've only used this for a month but I really like how long my lashes look (which is huge for me because I have short stick-straight-down lashes). 
  7. Dior Addict Lip Glow: Since this is an every day look, I like to go with a natural and muted lip. I did a review of this product a while back and while the staying power could be better, I really like this, especially for a look like this. 
What does your everyday makeup routine look like?


  1. Every time you mention that lip product I make a mental note to get it- definitely going on my wish list this year! I totally forgot about the color tattoos!

  2. Same here as Carly, I make a mental note every time you talk about the Dior Lip Glow! As of late I haven't been wearing any makeup day-to-day. I started getting really into my gym-time in the afternoons and that made putting makeup on beforehand feel a little pointless. Now I'm working on shifting my workouts to the morning so I can get everything I need to get done for my back workouts DONE and can get back to enjoying makeup!! Nice to see your routine up-to-date! MUCH LOVE!

  3. I love them all especially Maybelline mascara.

  4. I love how easy this makeup routine is! Plus, it sounds like these are amazing product! I definitely want to check out that Philosophy one!

  5. The Philosophy A-Z cream sounds great! I have been using lots of BB creams daily and this one would be perfect for me! x


  6. Love seeing what you use every morning! Will definitely have to try some of these out!
