My Natural Everyday Makeup Routine
A few times per week I’m asked questions about my everyday makeup routine. I’m almost always away from my makeup when it happens, so I find myself frantically trying to remember the name of certain products in order to answer the questions. So now I’ve rounded up a full list of the products I use in my natural everyday makeup routine to make it easier on everyone!
My Natural Everyday Makeup Routine:
Foundation + Tinted Moisturizer
On days I’m in a rush or don’t feel a need to wear much makeup, I use SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 as my tinted moisturizer. It is incredibly lightweight and provides just enough coverage.
When wearing foundation, I always use a Beauty Blender to apply it.
On days I want something full coverage, my go-to is It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream. It’s anti-aging, contains an SPF of 50, and is color-correcting.
For a light coverage, Charlotte Tilbury Light Wonder Foundation is what I use. It’s hydrating and incredibly lightweight.
For a medium coverage, I’ve been turning to Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation for many years now. It’s a top seller for a reason!
It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer is honestly the only concealer I have found that I actually like. My skin is dry and I find most concealers to be incredibly drying under-eye, but not this one! If you need a full coverage, hydrating concealer - give this a try.
Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Flawless Finish Setting Powder actually does deliver a flawless finish! It blurs imperfections and reduces shine, without overdoing it.
For a loose setting powder, RCMA No Color Powder is my favorite. I find many powders to dry me out too much but this one doesn’t. If you have dry skin, I highly recommend it.
To prime my eyes for shadow I use Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion.
Too Faced Natural Eyes Eyeshadow Palette is what I use when i travel and also at home for an everyday natural look. There’s a mixture of both mattes and shimmers so you can create plenty of different looks and easily go from day to night. The size is pretty compact which makes it perfect to bring on holiday.
For something much less boring, I love the Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette. It contains 35 different shades and contains everything you need for a natural look or something much more creative if that’s what you’re in the mood for!
To highlight my brow bone and my inner corner, Make Up For Ever Star Lit Powder in 13 Ivory is the best. You would never know this from looking at it online but I promise if you buy it you will not be disappointed!
Kat Von D Tattoo Liner is the best eyeliner of all time — really. It's so good that it can even last through a car accident, in fact! I find it easier to apply than gel liner and other liners too so it's my forever go-to.
Marc Jacobs Beauty Highlighter Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner is what I use when I want a fun color liner. It comes in more shades than I can count and lasts incredibly long.
For my waterline, I use Charlotte Tilbury Rock ’N Kohl Eyeliner Pencil in Satin finish and Barbella Brown. The satin finish one is nude and makes your eyes look bigger, brighter, and more awake. I also have and use Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Crayon in Vanilla Kiss for the same purpose.
I don’t use it everyday, but when I have the time I prime my lashes with Lancome CILS BOOSTER XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base. It’s conditioning, priming, and really does add extra length and thickness!
Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara is my ride-or-die mascara for big, bold lashes! I have tried just about everything out there and this one is by far my favorite.
When I need something waterproof, I use Maybelline Full ’N Soft Waterproof Mascara. It’s the best.
If you need help getting fuller brows, Grande Cosmetics GrandeBROW Brow Enhancing Serum is pretty good. I don’t use it everyday because my PM skincare routine is already too long but I do find that it works when I do.
For contouring, I love the Kat Von D Shade + Light Face Contour Palette. The original palette wasn’t customizable but it is now so you can pick and choose which colors your palette includes.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer is the best selling bronzer at Sephora for a reason — because it is the best ;) I’ve been using it forever (since high school?) and never don’t have it in my collection.
Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzer Coconut Perfect Tan is another bronzer I love. It is ginormous, smells subtly like coconut, and is super luxurious.
Nars Orgasm Blush is the best selling blush at Sephora because it’s the best. Just like Hoola Bronzer, I have been using this for longer than I can remember. It’s the perfect light pink.
Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso is another blush I use. It’s coral-y and I especially love it when i have a tan or during the summertime.
Lancome Absolue Powder is probably my favorite item on this list right now. I love a highlight but am kind of over the blinding powder-y looking highlights people are still doing. Instead this is a radiant, smoothing powder that is too pretty to even put into words! It is truly beautiful.
When I want a more intense, blinding highlight, I use Becca Pressed Highlighter in Champagne Pop.
Last but not least, lips! For some reason I would rather leave the house completely barefaced than I would without lipstick or lip product of some kind. It’s something I almost always have on. While I’m constantly trying new options, there are a handful of lip products that I buy over and over and over again.
In terms of treatments and non-colored products:
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask — I actually put this on during my morning skincare routine to prep my lips. It is extremely hydrating and something I VERY highly recommend! I also put it before bed and throughout the day as needed. Don’t let the “sleeping mask” term fool you, it’s not just for sleeping!
Glossier Lip Gloss — I LOVE this clear, ultra-shiny gloss and am never without it. It’s not sticky at all and is the most perfect clear gloss I’ve ever found!
TooFaced Lip Injection Extreme — I use this to plump my lips. It tingles a bit but to me that is great because it means it is working! I can definitely notice a difference when I use it and I wear it all day everyday.
And my favorite pigmented lip products:
Kylie Cosmetics Koko K Matte Lip — my favorite everyday lip color (along with Pillow Talk below). It lives in my purse and I never go anywhere without it!
Kylie Cosmetics Posie K Matte Lip — another Kylie favorite of mine. I wear it when I want more of a punch.
Buxom Full-on Plumping Lip Polish in Kanani — while this is considered to be a plumping gloss, I actually don’t notice any plumping. I bought it originally because my middle name is Kanani - which is also the shade name - and now I continue to buy it because the color is actually great!
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution in Pillow Talk — another one of my everyday go-tos. It’s a cult favorite and the best pinky nude.
Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat Lip Liner in Pillow Talk — the liner to go with the above mentioned lipstick!
Sephora Collection Cream Lip Stain Liquid Lipstick in Always Red — the most perfect red to ever exist, I promise.
Sephora Collection #Lipstories in First Class — I bought it mainly because I liked the shade name (haha) but it is a fun summer color, especially with a tan.
Lawless Soft Matte Liquid Lipstick in Brad — it’s clean and I really like the formula. I just wish it came in more colors because this is the only one I like!
