Soooo sooo sorry I’ve been MIA for the last two weeks! I’ve been trying to take back my life and get back into a functional routine after being without my car for 6 WEEKS! Yep, that’s how long it took for the dealership to order my part and fix my car #islandproblems. Anyways, now that I finally have it back, I’ve slowly found my bearings again and no longer have to do my daily makeup during the car ride to work (my ride liked to get into work extra early, and beggars can’t be choosers).
I’m not saying i’m an MUA and I don’t do anything too fancy during the week, but it’s been a while since I shared a post on anything beauty related so here’s a breakdown of my daily makeup routine.
Foundation and Concealer
Remember when everyone went crazy over Rihanna’s Fenty launch? Well, I’m still not over the hype! It’s one of the ONLY high-end makeup brands that I can find my true match in. Whether I’m lighter from busy season or tanner from carnival, I can always count on Fenty for the perfect match. The only thing I’ve noticed is when I up in shades for my tanner days this foundation is a tad bit drying, which I think was addressed in new Fenty Pro Filt’r Hydrating Longwear Foundation, I have yet to try it so don’t quote me on that but when I do, I’ll be sure to update you all on my Instagram!
– Fenty Pro Filt’r Foundation – 290
– Fenty Pro Filt’r Concealer – 260
I’m 100% a blush person. I feel like it just adds life back to your face and I won’t do my makeup without applying it. This is something that changes every day but I do have my favourites.
I was never a real bronzer girl until I tried the product below. It is LIFE CHANGING, okay maybe I’m being dramatic but honestly, when Sara (Insta: beautycrush_makeupbar) introduced me to this I fell in love. I try not to apply too much daily but it adds just a little dimension to your face.
Mac Cosmetics – Dark Tan Mineralize Skinfinish
To be completely honest, this isn’t something I would say I apply every day, but most days. Again I am a blush person and not a major highlight person. Living in the Caribbean with oily skin I find that you just need to walk around outside long enough to get a “glow” so if I applied a lot of highlighter I would just look like a disco ball…. not cute. But I’ll still list some of my faves below.
– Becca Champagne Pop
– Nars Albatross (forever one of my favorites!)
I don’t really do much to my eyes daily. My main goal throughout the week is to not look as tired as I actually am lolll. This usually consists of a little bronzer in the crease, liner, and mascara.
But I have found a trick to make it look like you’re wearing falsies all the time … use PRIMER! I don’t think a lot of people think of priming their lashes before applying mascara but it’s been a huge game-changer for me!
– Urban Decay Procession Liner
– Urban Decay Primer
– Urban Decay Perversion Mascara
I really like my natural lip color so again I don’t usually do much here but when I do its usually a pinky/nude. I’ve also never been good at picking nude colors for my skin tone so if anyone has any recommendations, help a girl out!
NYZ – London
And that’s about it really simple, nothing over the top but you’ll look cute and ready to take on the day!
I’ll have most of these products linked on my amazon storefront if you are interested in purchasing any!
