Today I’m sharing the makeup products I currently use nearly every day. A lot of these products are ones I’ve used for years, but the biggest change is the order in which I apply them.
One of my secrets to looking more alive every day is that I use three different blushes layered throughout my routine. I love the mix of different colors together and the saturated look this application method creates. This routine is a little more lengthy than some of the others I’ve shared over the years, but all in all it still only takes me about ten minutes in total.
See my makeup application process in action in this Instagram Reel!
After completing my skin-care routine, I apply Supergoop! Glow Screen (color: Golden Hour) on my face. I then apply Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Brows (color: Dark Brown) on my eyebrows and spay Charlotte Tilbury Airbrush Setting Spray all over my face.
I use Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour (color: 01 Curvy Contour) on my jawline, cheekbones, temples, and the sides of my nose. I apply e.l.f Halo Glow Liquid Filter (color: 2 Fair/Light)—a highlighter with buildable coverage—on my chin, the center of my forehead, and above the apples of my cheeks. Then I apply a little bit of Rare Beauty Liquid Blush (color: Lucky) on the apples of my cheeks. I blend it all in using the Jones Road The Everything Brush (gifted).
I apply Haus Labs Skin Tech Foundation (color: 130 Light Warm) all over my face using the Sephora PRO Powder Brush #50. I then apply NARS Liquid Blush (color: Orgasm, updated formula here) on my cheeks.
I apply the Kosas Wet Lip Oil (color: Malibu) on my lips. I use the Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette (color: Pillow Talk) on my eyelids using a Sephora Crease Brush #26. Then I line my upper eyelids using the Sephora Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner Pencil (color: Matte Brown).
I apply Givenchy Prisme Libre Setting Powder (color: 3 Voile Rosé) using the Jones Road The Bronzer Brush (gifted). I curl my eyelashes using the Shiseido Eyelash Curler and put on Tower 28 Mascara (color: Jet – Black). Then I apply Item Beauty Blush (color: I’m Crushin’—product no longer available) on my cheeks using a Sephora Blush Brush #96. Lastly, I apply Jones Road The Bronzer (color: Light Tan) (gifted) on my nose, chin, and jawline using the same Jones Road The Bronzer Brush I used for the setting powder.
