Simple Everyday Make-up

Hello! 

Today I’m bringing my first Friday beauty post with my simple everyday make-up routine! I will preface in saying I am in no way a “beauty guru” but I enjoy it and I like wearing this simple look. So – if you’d like to see how I get this look keep on reading!



First I take my Up and Up SPF facial moisturizer, which I’ve talked about before. Not too exciting of a step and then because it’s summer (and I just discovered this step) I add a primer. I’ve been using the Cover Outlast Primer, which I think works great! I’ve never used a primer before but this one really keeps my BB cream in place even when it’s 100 degrees outside. So as I’m sure you can guess – I add a BB cream. I’ve been using the Covergirl BB cream with SPF 21. I think it’s really nice for the summer time, with pretty minimal coverage so if you’re looking for high coverage this product isn’t it! but I think it’s a simple no fuss product. And yes, in the photo it doesn’t look like it’ll work for my skin tone but it does! I use light to medium right now because I’m outside a lot more. 

After that I just add the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder in 001 Creamy Natural. I used to use the translucent one but I like this one because it covers redness, which I definitely have a problem with. I then just add a litle bit of blush and I always use the Clinique all over color in 01 Peony. I’ve been looking for a drugstore dupe because I love that it’s a blush and very faint highlight but I haven’t found one yet – so if you have any suggestions let me know!

After that I just take the Revealed 2 Palette by Coastal Scents and I’m using this shimmery brown shade all over my crease and lid. i do it pretty haphazardly because I find this shade to be pretty mess free and easy to work with. As for brushes I just use two Ecotools brushes – one is supposed to be for concealer and the fluffy one is an eyeshadow brush. I got both of them in a great set! 

Then I’m just going to draw a thin line with my Revlon Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Pen, (i know – my eyeliner isn’t the best but what can ya do??) which I used to not enjoy but I have been reaching for it lately! Then I use my usual Clinique High Impact Mascara, which gives my lashes great volume and length! 

I don’t always wear lipstick but for the sake of this post I thought I would! I chose a clinique lipstick in the shade Shy, which looks a lot darker than it really is! It’s actually very sheer and light – perfect for summer.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed this sumple everyday make up routine!
