Start To Finish Makeup Routine

I wanted to share my complete makeup routine with you guys, start to finish and everything in between! Makeup is such a great thing, not to take away from natural beauty but a way to enhance your own beauty! No one is perfect and I think its important that we never forget that! I love playing with different products and trying new products, and yes my skin pays for this but I love sharing this with you guys!

I had a lot of fun doing this post and it was pretty cool to photograph this look step by step!

I hope you guys enjoy!

Step 1: Wash & Moisturize

Products Used: Clinique 3 Step System



Step 2: Primer & Foundation

Products Used: Smashbox Photo Finish Primer & Tarte 12hr Clay Foundation in colour Light – Medium Sand (put over entire face including eyelids and lips!)

Tip: I like to use a thin layer of primer in my T zone, under my eyes and around my chin and lips!


Step 3: Eyebrows

Products Used: Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Ebony, Lined and finished with Maybelline Concealer

Tip: I use a small angled liner brush with my dip brow, it allows for straight lines and is small enough to fill in with as well. I use this exact brush here! I am currently trying a morph brush and will let you know how it goes!


Step 4: Eyes

Products Used:

Urban Decay Eye Primer in Minor Sin

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

Tip: Always use a eye primer is you are putting on a fair share of powder, easiest explanation to why?! Protecting your investment, eyeshadow is expensive!!



Step 5: Concealer

Products Used: Urban Decay Naked Concealer in the shade Light Warm, set concealer with Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder

Tip: Waiting to conceal after you have done your eye makeup will allow you to get rid of any fall out as well as give you the nice crisp line for a wing liner!


Step 6: Blend, Set & Contour

Products Used:

Damp Beauty Blender

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder

Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette

Tip: I always use a damp beauty blender. I use it to apply my foundation and concealer every single day. Having it dap allows for a better finish and less product being absorbed into the sponge material! One you have blended out your concealer, always set it with a powder. This will help avoid any fine lines or appearances of wrinkles!


Step 7: Blush & Eyeliner

Products Used: Tarte Blush in Dazzled &  Amaterasu Liquid Eyeliner in Black (formerly Geisha Ink)

Tip: I want to do a tutorial on a wing liner as soon as my good lens is back! I like to start my lining my inner corner and then lining the wing itself. From there I slowly colour in the lines!


Step 8: Mascara

Products Used: Dior Lash Plumping Serum & Dior Blackout Mascara

Tip: I like using a serum prior to my mascara, I feel like it makes my lashes fuller while wearing mascara and it also makes it easier to take the mascara off!


Step 9: Lips & Accessories

Revlon 820 Pink Cognito

Old Navy Scarf (old)

Eliasz & Ella Bangin Bracelets (here & here)

Eliasz & Ella Rose Gold City Studs
