My Current Basic Makeup Routine
I am not one of those women who uses the same products 24/7, 365, and stores them in a little makeup bag somewhere in the bathroom. I could blame this on the fact that I get my makeup deeply discounted or free, but I have been this way long before going into the makeup business. I like trying new things. I like knowing what works well together to make recommendations to other people. So when I have a client ask me what I use in my routine, the answer really depends on the day. When I am short on time, pressed powder is my go to. It's quick and doesn't take much effort to blend. Lately, I have fallen back in love with liquid foundation. Here is what I have been wearing recently:
Setting Spray: (used as primer and at the end) http://bit.ly/2KvssVY

Concealer: (Velour) bit.ly/CConcealers

Setting Powder: bit.ly/setpowder
Bronzer: (Malibu) bit.ly/bronzerduos
Brow Pencil: (dark)bit.ly/2ioKi0t
Pencil Liner: (Perfect to tightline) bit.ly/PencilEyeLiners
Lash Curler: shopstyle.it/l/JQru
Waterproof Base Mascara: shopstyle.it/l/JQpB
Bronzer: (Malibu) bit.ly/bronzerduos *in crease and at lower lashline
Pencil (Pouty--all over): bit.ly/PencilLipLiners
THE HOW TO:
I spray my face with setting spray and let dry down before applying other makeup. Empty the dropper and shake my liquid foundation before applying desired amount directly to my face. Use THIS SPONGE (omg it's so good!) damp--use rose water or setting spray, to press the foundation into my skin. Then I apply a thin layer of my concealer under my eyes in a triangular shape to do double duty as a highlighter. Apply setting powder under eyes. Use the contour end of my medium sculpting stick and apply directly in the hollows of my cheeks. Blend in with my RT sponge. Lightly dust setting powder all over while also brushing away any excess product under my eyes. Bronze my cheekbones, forehead, jawline and neck.
Then I take a blending brush and work bronzer into the crease of my eyes as well as my lower lashline. Apply brow liner lightly to even out brows (do NOT hold this like a pencil!). Heat lash curler, test to make sure it's not too hot and then curl my stick straight lashes. Tightline my upper lashline. Apply a THIN coat of waterproof mascara and then once that has dried, finish it off with my epic mascara. Line lips and then fill in with pouty lipliner. SPRAY THAT FACE! Take a selfie.
I hope that helps anyone who is unsure of application or order of products. If you want a specific tutorial, please comment below! This is a good base for whatever look you want to do--add blush or eyeshadow of your choice.
