My Everyday Makeup Products

      I'm definitely a creature of habit. Once I find something that I like and that works for me, I stick to it. The same concept also goes for my makeup products as well. I usually rotate three looks in my everyday makeup routines, but I do wear a neutral smokey brown eye with a my-lips-but-better lipstick shade the most often. I've worn the look so many times that I could do it while half asleep and in under 5 minutes for both eyes. It's easy, goes with anything I'm wearing, and it's classic. Click through the jump to see a list of the products shown and why it's one of my everyday makeup products.

Products Shown

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette: All the neutral colors I would ever need in one palette! I use the following shades the most; Booty Call as an inner eye highlight, Snakebite as an outer crease contour, and Suspect to blend it all together.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla: An amazing pigmented but blendable concealer. It's easy to travel with, and has really good staying power. The only con about this concealer is the packaging! You definitely won't be able to get all the product out. I'm hoping NARS might change that in the future.

Maybelline Color Tattoo in Bad to the Bronze: I absolutely love this shade! I use it as a base before I apply the three colors I mentioned above in the Naked 2 palette. However, if I am being super lazy or I'm in a rush, I just use my finger and pop this on my lid and it works too.

Bobbi Brown Black Ink Long Wear Gel Liner: Super dark color payoff and applies like a dream. I never have to tug at my waterline with this gel liner. To make the liner last longer, I apply a little bit of powder over the liner. I also use this for when I'm wearing a cat-eye (but I'm currently testing out Kat von D's Tattoo Liner as a possible replacement). If you want a more natural looking liner, it also comes in brown.

YSL Creme de Blush in Powdery Rose: I prefer a cream blush over powder blushes even though they don't last as long as powder blushes. I just like the more natural look of a cream blush better. The YSL Creme de Blush formula is very easy to apply, hard to mess up, and looks very natural on the skin. It also has a beautiful powder like finish, so even though it's a cream formula, you're kind of getting the best of both worlds.

Revlon Lip Butter in Berry Smoothie: The Revlon lip butter formulas are great because they're easy to apply and are more balmy than a traditional lipstick (the shade Candy Apple Red is also my most worn red lip shade). I default to Berry Smoothie as an everyday lip color because it just looks like my lips but better. It has a little bit of shimmer in it, but you can't really tell since the particles are so fine.

Chanel Vita-Lumiere Aqua in the Shade B10: The finish of this foundation is great for everyday wear. It's not quite matte, but it's not luminous either. Although it's advertised by Chanel to be an "ultra light" skin perfecting makeup, it actually has more coverage than a tinted moisturizer. It has good lasting power as well!
