Must-Haves for My Everyday Make-up Routine

Hey, ladies a while back I gave you my skincare routine for sensitive skin and I thought I would show you the must-haves for my daily makeup look. As we are transitioning into the fall season away goes my CC cream and, out comes my liquid foundation. 

After cleansing my face, I slather on Lush's Magical Moringa, it acts as a moisturizer and primer. It's soft to the touch but has this magical powdery finish. Since my eye look is extremely simple, I go ahead and line my waterline and tight line with MAC's Carbon eyeshadow.

Moving onto color correcting with Urban Decay's Naked Skin Color Correcting Fluid in Deep Peach. I blend it under my eyes to camouflage my dark circles and bags. Lorac's Sheer Porefection Foundation is a newbie to the mix, but it leaves my skin with a dewy finish even in the winter. The coverage is light to medium but it is buildable. After blending the shade tan in until it is flawless, I then dab Urban Decay's Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer under my eyes to highlight and add dimension to my face.

Bake away with Tarte's Smooth Operator to mattify and melt the makeup together. Then onto contouring my cheekbones with Anastasia Beverly Hills' Contour in Espresso and around my forehead. I'm about to really start glowing by placing Benefit's What's Up on the bridge of my nose as well as the high points of my cheekbone. Layer and blend Too Faced's Love Light Prismatic Highlighter in Ray of Light (rose gold) onto the high points for a bit of dimension and added glow. The trick is to blend and then I place my blush, MAC's Sheertone Shimmer Blush in Peachtwist in between my highlight and contour.

Finish the look with my eyebrows, filling them in ever so slightly with Benefit's Brow Zings Tame and Shape Kit in 5 Deep and shaping with a spooley brush. Building up the drama with Maybelline's The Falsies Push-Up Drama mascara. Topping off my look with one of my new favorite liquid lipsticks NARS' Powermatte Lip Pigment in London Calling, a muted purple.
