This post was originally up on the DIY blog Made to be a Momma! I thought this was a great post for my readers as well so I am sharing my glam routine for you all (step by step)! This make-up routine is perfect for those day you want to feel a bit more glamorous then just applying your favorite CC Cream! Here we go….
First, I start with a fresh face (I love using the Clarisonic for this!).
Then, I always add primer before anything else is applied. Primer is used to help moisturize the face and neck region, allowing the make-up to go on smoother. The one I am using is Too Faced Hangover RX. I love this one because it is coconut water based (SO good for your skin) and also has electrolytes and probiotics which helps to tone out your skin.
Next, I apply concealer. This is used to help hide dark circles and makes you appear more awake (this beauty step is awesome for those mornings you are feeling extra sleepy). A common theme in concealers now is to have a highlighter to further brighten the under eye area. My favorite concealer is Laura Mercier High Coverage Concealer. This concealer is thick and hides ALL of my dark circles. You only need the tiniest amount of this stuff and it will go a long way!
Then, I apply my Bare Minerals BareSkin foundation. This foundation is coconut water based and has so many great ingredients, such as lavender and SPF 20, to help improve your skin white also protecting it. I originally bought this product without the brush because I thought it was a waste of money. I was wrong. The brush is specifically made for this foundation and really helps spread the product evenly across the face. I also love this product because you can build for the coverage you want ranging from light to full.
Since it is springtime I add a bronzer to my beauty regime and apply this right after I apply my foundation. I am currently loving liquid bronzer because I think it looks so much more natural then pressed powder. The one I use is Becca Bronzing Skin Prefector. This product totally lives up to its name.
Then I apply my FAVORITE (I cannot say this word enough for this product) blush to the apples of my cheeks. This blush is Dior Rosy Glow and there is only one shade because this shade will adapt to your skin tone (I’m not kidding)! I was not a believer at first, and then I tried it. It really does match your skin tone to give you this gorgeous rosy glow. I wear this blush all the time and people will ask me what I am wearing. I try and promote this product any change I get because I used to have multiple shades of blush, but this one is so good. I have had this product since November of 2014 and use it almost everyday- and (I don’t know if you can tell in the picture) but the blush looks like I barely use it. It’s great quality and lasts awhile so I think it’s totally worth the investment (this blush is a bit on the pricey side).
Lastly I use a little eyeliner and mascara to finish off the look, add a little lip tint, and I am really to tackle the day! Here is what I look like with all the make-up on. I love this make-up routine because it only takes me about 6 minutes to do, and I still look like myself- just a little bit more glamourous for those days when you want to feel like it!
