Everyday Makeup Routine

I have been meaning to share my everyday makeup routine for quite some time now, so here it is! I don't use that many products day-to-day. But, I usually add some more whenever I take blog photos like eyeliner, eyeshadow, blush, etc. This is what I typically wear to work, or casual weekends. You may notice quite a few of these products are from IT Cosmetics, and that is for a few reasons. The main reasons is that they are just great products, but they are also very generous with blogger mailers. So although a few of them were gifted to me, I am giving my honest opinion on each of these products I use daily!

Milk Makeup "Blur Liquid" foundation- This foundation was sent to me via Influenster to review, and I have been wearing it for over 6 months now. I really like that is full coverage, but still feels very light.  I think it does a good job of covering my acne scars. I also really like that it is matte, which is great for my (sometimes shiny) oily skin. However, it does separate a bit and I usually have to shake the bottle before each use.

IT Cosmetics "Bye Bye Undereye"under eye concealing pot- I think this is pretty self explanatory, I only use this concealer under my eyes. It is full coverage, and I only use a small amount. And unlike other IT Cosmetics concealers, this one does not have any shimmer to it.
IT Cosmetics "Bye Bye Redness" color correcting concealer- I don't use this every single day, but probably a few days a week. I think it covers redness from acne fairly well! I wear the "porcelain beige" shade.

IT Cosmetics "Your Skin But Better" CC powder- This is another product that I wear often, but not every day. I have always liked CC cream, so I knew I would like the powder form. And it doesn't hurt that it has SPF 50+ in it! I wear the "fair" shade that seems just a little on the dark side for me, so it is more of a summer powder for me.

IT Cosmetics "Superhero" mascara- I really like the length I get from this mascara, but it can be a little clumpy at times. I sometimes layer it with another mascara that gives more volume.

IT Cosmetics "Brow Power" eyebrow pencil- I love this brow pencil, I think it fills in my brows very well. It only comes in one "universal" shade, which I think works great with my color. However, I do not think it would be the perfect color on everyone.

Lip Color
Stila "Stay All Day" liquid lipstick- I regularly wear the color "Patina" which is a dusty rose shade. For me, it looks like a bit of darker than nude shade. It is a matte finish, stays almost "all day" (like the name says!), and does not dry out my lips. This is definitely one of my go-to colors on most mornings. I even like this liquid lip enough to have bought it in 4 more shades!

BareMinerals "GenNude" liquid lipstick- I wear the color "Infamous" that is the perfect nude shade on my fair skin. I wish it lasted a little longer, but because it is a nude shade, it is not very noticeable as it fades away. And just like the Stila shade above, it does not dry out.

Thanks for reading!
