my new daily makeup routine

my new daily makeup routine

I like to keep my daily makeup routine simple, with a few important things in mind: (1) moisturization, (2) SPF, and (3) a little glow.

I found this step-by-step photo tutorial for Flawless Skin With a Beauty Blender by Once Wed on Pinterest, and tried it for the first time this week.

Before I got started, I moisturized with Koh Gen Do Spa Moisture Spa Gel (which I purchased on Hautelook for 50% off) and did my eye makeup.

Then, because I didn’t have all the tutorial’s suggested supplies on hand, I made a few tweaks using my favorite products:

  • For starters, I love the SOHO version of the beauty blender sponge; it works just as well for a third of the price!
  • If you don’t have hydration spray, wetting the sponge with water and squeezing out the excess works, too. [Sidenote: I purchased a bottle of Clinique Moisture Surge Face Spray specifically for this routine, and I really like it! In addition to initial application, it’s also a great way to sooth tight, tired skin and refresh your makeup late in the day.]
  • I used Josie Maran Argan Oil Illumizer and NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer in Alaska for steps 4 and 5, and Benefit Fake-Up hydrating concealer for step 6.
  • For step 8, I contoured with Clinique True Bronze Pressed Powder Bronzer in Sunkissed and a kabuki brush. Picking up a darker compact foundation for contouring is on my to-do list.
  • For cream blushes, I love FLOWER Beauty Creme Blushes (available at Walmart) and Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints.

I was able to get through all of the steps in less than 10 minutes, and I love that the results are sheer and healthy-looking. Like my skin, just… better.

    Love the look! I as well like Clinique products. The “Redness Solutions” toned my ruddy-ness way down. And, their new makeup brushes I got for Christmas rock!
