My Everyday Make-Up

Hey there!

Today I wanted to show you the products I use for my everyday make-up. I know many of you probably don’t use this much to begin with, but I have really uneven skin tones, large pores, and scars from acne so I need all the help I can get! I was not blessed with silky smooth skin like many women. I used to have pretty bad acne until this year. For some reason, it decided to clear up (thank goodness)! I have oily skin in my T Zone area, but it can become flakey and dry in the winter.

My routine begins in the morning with a shower. After I dry off and put clothes on, I put a tiny* bit of moisturizer on the dry areas of my face and then add primer to my T Zone. I then take my hair out of a towel and comb through it (which takes awhile because my hair snarls very easily). Next, I put on deodorant and brush my teeth. This gives the primer time to dry and settle. After the primer has settled (about 10 minutes), I begin to apply my liquid foundation with a brush. I just discovered the Fenty foundation brush by Rihanna and I LOVE it! I will be trying more Fenty products in the future.

This list is the general order that I put my make up on.

  6. Eyeliner: Kat Von D: Tattoo Liner: $20.00
