Primer: MAC Prep + Prime Natural Radiance
I need a primer mostly because I want something that my foundation will stick to and this is the one I find myself reaching for most often. I find that what really helps my makeup stay on throughout the day is the foundation I use rather than my primer, so I’m never too picky with my primer.
Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear 3N1 Ivory Beige, YSL All Hours Foundation B40 Sand, Shape Tape Matte Foundation Fair-Light Neutral.
I mix these three based on the current color of my spray tan. I love the formula of each and these are some of my most long wearing.
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape Light Neutral
I don’t have dark circles (yet) so I use concealer just to brighten my under eye area and give my face dimension which I needed in 2005.
Powder: Laura Mercier Secret Brightening, MAC Studio Fix NC30, Urban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder
This is one of the most important steps in my routine because I need to set all of my makeup which will be ruined by my oil in three minutes. I use the secret brightening powder under my eyes to make it brighter and to set my concealer. I then use MAC, which is a powder foundation, to add a little more coverage and then set everything with the Urban Decay powder. The only aspect of the Urban Decay powder I didn’t love was how quickly I hit pan.
Bronzer: Too Faced
I mix Milk Chocolate Soleil and Chocolate Soleil to contour and give more color to my face. I also love NARS Laguna which is a classic.
Blush: Becca Gypsy
RIP Gypsy. They no longer make it but I still use the cracked palette I still have. When it finally gives, my other favorite is Fleur Power from MAC.
Highlighter: theBalm Mary–Lou Manizer, Burberry Rose Gold No.4
I would show you my Mary-Lou but it cracked three days after I got it… Still works like a charm though. I also love Burberry because it’s a beautiful rose gold and perfect for the summer.
Eye primer: Urban Decay Sin, NARS Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base
After I put concealer and powder on my eye lids I have to use either of these before I put on my eye shadow or else it will be off in a few hours. Sometimes I wear the Urban Decay alone because it’s such a beautiful color. The NARS has no color but helps my eye shadow stay on all day.
Eye Shadow: Urban Decay Naked
If I want a simple eye look I’ll just put this in my crease.
Liner: Maybelline Gel Liner Blackest Black
Love this because it’s so dark and doesn’t budge. I prefer to apply eye liner with a brush rather than a pencil so this is always what I use.
Mascara: Too Faced Better Than Sex, Charlotte Tilbury Glossy Black, L’Oreal Carbon Black
At night I put GrandeLash eyelash serum on my lashes. In the morning I set with a L’Oreal primer and then use three mascaras, which I know is extra.
Lipgloss: Marc Jacobs Sugar Sugar
The ultimate pinky nude lipgloss. It’s not sticky and I’m in love with the color. I also love Buxom White Russian.
Setting Spray: MAC Fix +
I always set my makeup when I’m finished to help it last longer. Be really careful with the setting spray you use! Some of the less expensive ones have really harmful chemicals and alcohol in them and you’re spraying that all over your face.
