Michelle’s Everyday Makeup Routine

Steph got to post her great skincare routine yesterday but since my skin isn’t great right now, I’ll tell you what I use to cover it up! I would do a video about this but I’m not a professional so I’ll leave that up to the real pros. It isn’t much but it gets me through the day.

First off, I always start the day off with some Bio-Oil. Not only is it helping me with some scars but it’s also a great moisturizer. All you need is a little bit on a cotton round.

If I have a lot of redness going on, I cover up the spots with a green color corrector. The one I use is the Teint Idole Ultra Wear Camouflage from Lancôme which you can get from Sephora here. I usually just blot it in with a Beauty Blender or my finger (depending on how rushed I am). I do this before I apply foundation.

As you guys read in my top 10 beauty products post, I love NARS. Their foundation is my favorite. You can get it from Sephora here. I also fell in love with this foundation brush from bareMinerals. It’s called the Smoothing Face brush and you can get it here. I saw someone use it in a makeup tutorial years ago and have been hooked ever since.

For the bags under my eyes, I use the cream NARS concealer in the color Custard (which you can get here) and I use a knock-off Beauty Blender that’s worked just as good & is cheaper too! You can get this blender on Amazon here. For stubborn dark spots on my face, I’ll also blot a little bit of the con

For all other spots I need to conceal on my face, I use the NARS Soft Matte Complete Concealer in the color Custard. You can get this product here. It gives me a great coverage and doesn’t make my skin look cakey and oily as some cream concealers can do. I use the e.l.f. Flawless Concealer Brush that you can get at Target for so cheap here.

I love my dark brows and the darker, the better. I love, love, love this Amazonian Clay Waterproof Brow Mousse from Tarte Cosmetics in Rich Brown. It’s so easy to put on and you only need a little bit. This little pot is going to last me a while! You can get it from Sephora here.

I’m a mascara junkie. Right now, as you know from my last post, I’ve been using the Thrive Causemetics Liquid Lash Extensions (which you can get here) but I’ve also been using a primer with any mascara I use. I got a sample of this primer from Sephora and I’ve been hooked ever since. This is the Lancôme Cils Booster XL and you can get it from Sephora here. It will boost up your lashes with whatever mascara you decide to use.

On the days when I really need my makeup to withstand work and the weather, I use the Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray. It works great and you can definitely tell the difference when I use this because my makeup hasn’t smeared off at the end of the day. A definite life-saver! Get it from Sephora here.
