My Daily Make-Up Routine + SEWE

Feb 1, 2017

I frequently share what face masks and night time products I use on here but I have not done a daily face post in awhile.  I am that crazy gal who doesn’t like to leave the house without make-up.  I don’t like it to look like I am wearing too much make-up but I also like some coverage.  I have blond eye lashes and bad under eye circles so mascara and concealer always happen.  Below are the products I use on a daily basis.

I was skeptical about this at first but now I am totally obsessed.  I know some people say oils can be greasy but this one is not.  The key is to let it sit on skin about 2 minutes before you apply your moisturizer to settle in.  I love this one.  It is the first thing I put on every morning.  I feel like it really hydrates my skin.  This small bottle lasts for a long time too as you only need about 1-2 pumps.

Next I apply this moisturizer.  I like it because it is considered “safe” and has no harmful ingredients.   It has coconut oil, aloe, safflower oil and acai in it which really to help moisturize the skin.   It is also light weight and not greasy.

Under my eyes can get really dry so I apply an eye cream morning and night.  I find it helps my concealer not get cakey as well.

Then I apply tinted moisturizer to even out my skin.  This is another “safe” product I love.  The coverage is nice and it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

I use this brush to apply the Tint Skin and I promise you really helps to seamlessly blend the foundation and make your skin look almost air brushed.  This was another item was skeptical about but now I am obsessed with it.

Under eye circles are my worst skin problem. Mine are so dark, add in the fact I don’t sleep well most nights and that makes them even worse.  I actually use 2 concealers for extra coverage.  

First I apply this Chanel one.  `I have the shade Beige Ivory.  I blend it with this brush.  Then I apply Cle De Paeu with my fingers.  I have found the combination of these two works well for me.

I use #31 in the chanel concealer and beige in Cle De Peau.

Next I use this brush and dust this powder over my face.  It provides just the perfect amount of coverage and doesn’t look like you are wearing powder.  I use the Beige Rose color.

\ C H A R L O T T E  T I L B U R Y  S E T

I ordered this set right after Christmas and I am obsessed with every single product in it.  It really makes your face look glowing and sun kissed. It comes with 5 products: mascara, beach stick, lipstick, eye shadow, and wonderglow instant beauty flash.  All these items are sold separately as well.  I liked the idea of the kit though to try a few at once. 

 The eyeshadow stick may be favorite, I love the color.  It looks dark but it is the prettiest bronze neutral.   I feel like it makes my eyes pop.  I have the bronze gromet color but they come in several other colors HERE.

The beach stick is also amazing.  You can use it on your cheeks and lips for that perfect sun kissed look.  I have the shade Moon beach but it also comes in 3 other shades.

The lipstick is a great neutral and I loved the mascara as well.  My lipstick is Very Victoria.

\ E Y E L I N E R 

I love Chanel’s eye liner.  It goes on smooth and is easy to use.  I alternate between the navy and black.

\ M A S C A R A 

Another Chanel product I love.  I have tried so many mascaras and this one is always my favorite.  It makes your lashes look long and full.

\ L I P G L O S S

During the day I don’t wear lipstick but I do use lipgloss and love all the Beauty Counter ones.  I am loving the two new colors Bee blossom and Corabell.

!function(d,s,id){var e, p = /^http:/.test(d.location) ? ‘http’ : ‘https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)) {e = d.createElement(s);e.id = id;e.src = p + ‘://’ + ‘widgets.rewardstyle.com’ + ‘/js/shopthepost.js’;d.body.appendChild(e);}if(typeof window.__stp === ‘object’) if(d.readyState === ‘complete’) {window.__stp.init();}}(document, ‘script’, ‘shopthepost-script’);

    This post is PERFECT timing because I am in the need for almost ALL new make-up. My make-up bag is in a serious state of disarray! Love the idea of an eye shadow stick for a quick all-in-one product.

    Are you still selling the beauty counter products? Want to make sure you get credit if I decide to purchase!

    I have been seriously craving a refresh for my makeup drawer. I'm so excited to try some of your favorites! I bought the Cle de peau concealer this fall and it is absolutely amazing and worth every penny. In fact, I bought each of my teenage daughters one for Christmas because they had been using mine and loved it.

    girl! seriously, i have the WORST dark circles. i always say that if they come up with an injection or a surgical procedure to correct them, it would be the 1st esthetic thing i would choose! so, let me know if you hear of anything šŸ˜‰ haha. thanks for sharing your secrets. I love the bobbi brown corrector and creamy concealer if you haven't tried it, but am ALWAYS open to new suggestions!

    I am OBSESSED with that mascara. My mom asked me the other day if I got extensions. I'm on my first tube and curious to see how long it lasts because at $30/bottle it's not cheap!

    Ah! I'm not sure if my previous commented posted. In case it didn't…

    I'm in LOVE with that mascara. My mom even asked me if I got extensions the other day! I'm curious to see how long this tube lasts (it's my first). at $30 a pop it's not cheap! I'm also a big fan of this L'oreal drug store version in black: https://www.amazon.com/LOreal-Voluminous-623-Black-Brown/dp/B014GCW3JI/ref=sr_1_23_s_it?s=beauty&ie=UTF8&qid=1486000952&sr=1-23&keywords=loreal+mascara

    Did you find anything to help your chapped lips? I'm still a fan of the Elf scrub!
