Daily Makeup Routine

I know that every time I have an outfit post I list my makeup. I also realize that what I'm wearing rarely changes, so I thought I'd show you what my typical daily makeup looks like.

I don't lay my makeup out like this when I go to put it on, I just wanted to make it look pretty for blog  purposes. And yes that is a GlossyBox lid.

Benefit's Girl Meets Pearl is one of my favorite highlighters, and it's absolutely perfect for daily use. Since I have a yellow undertone to my skin, I like that this is pink toned because I feel like it adds a bit of a warmth to the glow it gives.

This is probably one of my all time favorite concealers. Nars Radiant Creamy concealer is hands down the best concealer for dark circles I've ever used. It's okay for acne blemishes, but it's not as good as the Tarte Amazonian Clay Concealer. I'm out of that one right now and since even though it's not the best, the Nars does work I'm not worrying about repurchasing the Tarte one right now.

My Foundation is most days is the Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Mousse, usually I prefer the Nars Sheer Glow or the Chanel Vita Lumiere Aqua, but lately I've been using the Rimmel Foundation on days where I'm not taking photos or filming. It's a really good slap it on and go product for me.

The Mascara pictured is the Rimmel Glam Retro something or other. I'm not positive because I don't use it anymore. I love how it looks, and that it's a breeze to apply, but it makes my eyes water like crazy. So right now I'm currently using the YSL Babydoll that I got a sample of and seems to be lasting for ages. When that runs out I'll be forced to decide which YSL Mascara to purchase since they're the only brand that I've tried where my eyes don't water like crazy.

My setting powder which I don't use with the Nars foundation is the Makeup Forever Professional HD Setting Powder. I love this powder with every other foundation I've tried it with, but I don't like what it does to the Nars foundation.

These are the Lancome Eyeshadows that I use on pretty much a daily bases. I have a NYX palette and a BH cosmetics 120 palette but I just don't love them as much as I do these. The Lorac Pro Palette is on my Christmas list though.

And the last thing in my daily makeup routine is my blush which is the Nars Deep Throat Blush. It's terrible but I only own one blush. I went through a big clearing out and use it up phase and somehow got to the point that for awhile I was actually out of blush. It was awful. I'm just so indecisive and rather than buy a few I ended up not buying any for the longest time. It was Maxwell that recommended this blush to me so of course I needed it instantly. I do plan on buying a blush palette soon, but I'm torn between Nars, Sleek and Inglot. I might go with two, but that just seems excessive to me.

There's no lip product pictured because that changes constantly. Or I'm just not wearing one. Mostly it's the latter, because I'm terribly forgetful.
