My Every Day Makeup Routine

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Hey guys! I’m back with another post, and its been awhile since I’ve done a beauty post so here it is! I love makeup routine posts/videos and seeing what products other people are using and loving. So I thought I’d share my every day makeup routine with you.

This is basically the makeup routine that I do on a daily basis and for any quick errands to run out of the house. I’m no beauty guru so there’s no rhyme or reason to the things I do. But, anyways onto the routine!

My Every Day Makeup Routine


I always start by washing my face and I’ve been using the face wash that came with my Clarisonic but I just ran out so I’ve just been using whatever face wash I have around the house. Which has been various samples from old Ipsy bags. Then I prep my face with my tried and true Benefit Pore fessional primer. No matter what primer I try I always go back to this one and I think the texture is my favorite part. I never like the feeling of heavy makeup and this primer is extremely light weight and silky. Still open to trying some others but this is my go-to for now.

For foundation I tend to only reach for two, my Nars sheer glow or Makeup Forever HD. I’ve been on the paler side lately so I’ve been wearing my Nars more often. I only have one brush that I like to apply my foundation with and to be honest its just a Sephora brand brush.

I guess I really need to find some different foundation brushes…hmm

After my foundation I usually quickly fill in my brows. To fill in my brows I use the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer. I mean is there any other product to use for brows. If so let me know, because ABH kills it with brow products.

I usually don’t do a contour or highlight for everyday but when I do I only use my ABH cream contour palette and then set it with the powder contour palette.

When it comes to my blush and highlight I can’t stop using the Becca X Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. The shades are just too perfect, creamy and pigmented.


There are really only two palettes I grab for on a daily basis. Both of which are Jaclyn Hill products. The first is her eye palette from the Champagne Collection and the second is her collaboration with Morphe. When I’m doing quick makeup I tend to do a quick glitter base and blend it out with few different transition shades. Nothing too spectacular.

I usually finish it off with a quick gel or liquid liner and a coat of my favorite mascara – Smashbox Full Exposure.


My go-to lip product lately has been the ABH lip glosses. My absolute favorite is Tara. And I recently just fell in love with Bare Minerals Gen Nude Buttercream lip glosses which I mentioned in my Valentine’s Day Gift Guide post.

Finish it off

I usually set my entire face with a translucent powder but I just ran out and need to go purchase some more so for now I’ve just been giving my face a good spray with my favorite MAC prep and prime to really give my face a dewy and natural finish and a few sprays of Urban Decay’s All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray. And finally, I’m out the door.

This entire routine probably takes me about 10 -15 minutes which is perfect, especially when I don’t have any special plans.

What products do you use in your every day makeup routine? I kind of want to try the 5 minute makeup challenge! Let me know if you’d like to see a video of me trying that!


  • Really nice look. I threw away most of my foundation brushes because I use my beauty blender. I’m usually simple with my look and if I have an event, go bold on the lips. Great post and recommendations.
