Hello friends! I know it’s been a little while, but I have good news — it is confession time! Today I am sharing the products and details behind my easy, natural everyday makeup routine. These are the products I have emptied, used for years, and continue to go through super quickly. For me putting on makeup is an important part of my self-care, but on a typical day I like to opt for a pretty natural look that takes less than 10 minutes tops.
In order to show you the full impact of my everyday makeup routine, I feel like it is necessary to show you guys what I look like without any makeup.
So, here is my au-natural face.
After, applying here’s what I look like.
Now, here are the products behind my everyday makeup routine!
Before applying any makeup, I always wash my face and moisturize (I’ll save my morning skincare/pre-makeup routine for another post!). Then, the first thing I apply is primer. I love how light this primer is and it really helps my tinted moisturizer go on easily and evenly. Both the Laura Mercier primer and tinted moisturizer last about 9 months for me because a pea-sized amount of product is all you need.
I love that this tinted moisturizer cancels out any redness and evens out my skin tone, while still letting my freckles peek through. With a beauty blender, I place an extra dab of tinted moisturizer under my eyes instead of fooling with a concealer. This method makes the skin a little brighter without feeling heavy or getting cake-y. I think it looks pretty natural!
To give my face a little color and dimension, I brush the CARGO bronzing powder just below my cheeks and sweep it up around my temples and the corners of my forehead. A little bit of this bronzer goes a long way, and it is great for anyone with a fair to medium complexion.
The eyelid primer I use acts like a concealer for the skin above your eyes, and it’s seriously one of my all-time favorite makeup products. You can use it on its own, like I do most days, or use it as a priming base for eyeshadow to go on smoothly. My eyelid skin tends to get a little red, so I love using this primer to conceal it. The flax shade perfectly counteracts any redness.
If I had to pick a single makeup product to live with for the rest of my life, I would pick mascara. I have blonde eyelashes, so I have always felt like mascara totally transforms my face. As a self-proclaimed mascara junkie, I have tried a wide-range of mascaras. But the L’Oreal voluminous waterproof mascara is the one I always go back to for my everyday makeup routine. I love how sturdy the wand is, and the mascara has the right balance of lengthening and thickening power. It never clumps! Some days I use eyeliner to give my eyes an extra pop, too.
Lip gloss is always the final touch to apply as I am walking out the door (or when I’m sitting in that good ‘ole DC traffic!). Lorac’s Alter Ego lip glosses have a really nice texture, and most importantly they aren’t sticky. The amount of pigment is also just right. I have been loving the flower child shade, as it gives a nice punch of color to my otherwise neutral everyday makeup look.

So there you have it. Overall, I think my (not exactly) everyday makeup routine is pretty quick, easy and natural looking. For a regular day, I like a makeup routine that leaves me feeling like an enhanced version of myself. But, I would love to hear what your everyday makeup routine entails.
Do you have a natural, everyday makeup routine? How often do you wear makeup? Are you a tinted moisturizer girl like me or do you prefer a more full-coverage makeup look? I am curious if you consider applying makeup as part of your self-care routine as well. Share your thoughts in the comments so we can chat.
