as GOLD as it gets

Life's adventures should be fully accessorized!

everyday makeup routine


I’m excited to share my everyday makeup routine today. It’s pretty simple and not very involved, but I do use a few of products that I really love.

First off I start by moisturizing (after washing my face..but I don’t think you need to see that!). Next I use Benefits Porefessional to smooth my face, minimize any pores and serve as a good base before my primer. I let that set up for a second before using Revlon Coverstay 24 hour foundation in 150 buff with a Real Techniques retractable kabuki brush.

I let my foundation set up for a minute and then I set it with Rimmel’s Stay Matte powder in 003 natural and Real Techniques powder brush. Next I use Tarte’s Park Avenue Princess (matte) to bronze as a contour. And then curl my eyelashes using a drugstore curler.

I have been hesitant to use blush because I have pretty bad roscea. But good news – this Dream Bouncy blush from Maybelline in 05 fresh pink is so bright and pink (v. red) it really does brighten my face. Next I use Wet n Wild’s Megaclear brow and mascara gel to set my brows so they don’t go too wild throughout the day. Finally I hit a few places, with a tarte highlighter (I believe its champagne) from Tarte’s Park Avenue Princess palette.

Next I do my eyes : Toofaced Natural Eye Pallette to shadow, Maybellines Master Piece liquid liner and a few coats of Maybelline Volume Express the Rocket. Today I’m wearing Revlon’s Stormy Pink lipstick.

These are my everyday products! A good mix of drugstore and high-end that really work together well.

  1. Nice post! I use the Benefit Total Moisture Moisturiser and POREfessional too 🙂 they’re great! Notice an Ecotools brush there also, I have a collection of Ecotools brushes that I recently blogged about because I love them so much, for the cost they are amazing! x

    • Aren’t they the best? I have a review on the total moisture coming out next week! I am so impressed with it. I’ll check out your ecotools post – I really love the (only) one I have. Its stayed so nice!
