My everyday makeup routine

I’m not sure what happened but I really love makeup right now. My favorite thing to do right now is scroll through YouTube and watching beauty vloggers unbox their new beauty products and I start to get so excited because I NEED to try everything out. I’m definitely a beginner when it comes to buying makeup and applying it but I have the basics down.  I started using powder foundation a few months ago but it really has no impact on my face and I didn’t really like the consistency. I stopped by Sephora and picked up the Sephora liquid foundation in the color Deep Mocha. It matched my skin tone perfectly and it was only $20. This works so much better than powder. And it blends beautifully.

My NYX first base spray primer and setting spray work so well for me. I spray my beauty blender with the first base spray then I apply my foundation. I find that it blends better when the beauty blender is a little damp. And the dewy setting spray gives me that everyday shine that I like on my face without being too over the top.  If I’m not in the mood to use either I just use my First Aid Beauty hello fab coconut skin smoothie Priming moisturizer. It’s soft and makes my skin smell so good!

For my lips, I either keep it simple or take it to the next level with color. Some days I just want a lip balm and other days I like matte lipsticks in a dark color or a bright lip gloss. It really just depends on my mood that day. A lot of my lip products are from Ulta or the Marshalls beauty section. I try to find great products at an affordable price so I don’t break the bank while shopping for makeup. What do you guys use in your everyday makeup routine? Tell me in the comments below!
