The Love List: My Makeup Routine

Disclaimer: I bought all of these products on my own. Neither Sephora nor any of these brands know who I am!

I’m one of those weird people that LOVES looking for a new apartment. The appeal to me is that you get to go into all these buildings that you may have walked by hundreds of times and actually get to see what it’s like to live inside! Anyway, I think I’m just nosy because I love posts people do about their daily routines–not necessarily just the Day in the Lifes, but also products that people use everyday. I feel like sometimes I find new favorites that way or new brands to check out. So in that light, here is a peek into my everyday makeup routine. Yup, just 4 products and it takes me about 10 minutes {like really 10 minutes, not 10 minutes but I mean 35}.  I will say I think I’ve talked about most of these products before, but thought I would just put them together to demonstrate how I use them.

  1. Nars Tinted Moisturizer: I’ve definitely talked about this before and it’s still my favorite. Now that I’ve been applying it with the Beauty Blender, I love it even more. I’ve been using this stuff for over 3 years now and just bought by third tube. And I wear it everyday–that’s how long it lasts. I was considering getting a different moisturizer or potentially foundation and then though to myself–why change? And I’m so glad I haven’t!
  2. Nars The Multiple: I talked about this before too, but this just goes to show that I really like this  stuff and actually use it. I know a lot of people that swear by Orgasm, but I find it a little too glittery for my taste. I tried G-Spot {sense a theme?} and fell in love. It makes it so easy to get ready in the morning. Just a few swipes on the cheeks and then I blend it in with my fingers. Done!
  3. Dior Addict-It Lash: I’ve tried a bunch of different mascaras and my problem is always that I like how waterproof mascara doesn’t run, but also comes off easily. Apparently that is very hard to find. I would either end up with mascara that was impossible to get off or flakes all day everyday. I decided to try Dior mascara, and while it made me ill to spend this kind of money on mascara, I’m really happy with it.  I feel like it comes off relatively easy and doesn’t flake at all.
  4. Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Eyeliner: I don’t wear this everyday, but it’s probably gets used half the time on a regular day and definitely on special occasions. I think it’s easy to apply and adds a little oomph when you need it.
