After applying my AM skincare and SPF, I like to start this routine with the Milk Makeup Blur Stick
because it makes me feel comfortable with a lower-coverage base overall since it fills in texture on my skin and blurs the appearance of any unevenness. I focus it on areas where my pores are most prominent: around the center of my face, and my nose. I have some texture from past breakouts on the lower parts of my cheeks, so I hit it there, as well. I like to use the warmth of my fingers to work it into the skin after I swipe it on.
For my actual coverage product I’m reaching for the Dr Jart Cicapair Tiger Grass Camo Drops
, which I think are just amazing. It doesn’t look or feel like makeup and offers so many healing benefits to the skin, so it’s ideal for people with acne, sensitive skin, or redness. It also melts into the skin and creates the look of perfectly even and glowy skin. I like to work this into the skin using the Matte MakeupDrop
to get a flawlessly blended finish.
Eyes, Brows, Lips
I have naturally pretty full brows so on an everyday basis I keep my brow routine super simple and just run a clear brow gel through them to hold them in place. I have the one from Anastasia
in rotation right now but to be honest, I’m not picky.
For eyes I like to focus on maximum eye brightening impact with minimum effort. I love the Milk Makeup Eye Pigments
; the brighter colors are great for a quick and easy but impactful look. For everyday, I love the shade Hotel Lobby which is a light and shimmery champagne shade, which for my complexion is the perfect color to brighten things up. I like to apply just the tiniest bit of that all over my eyelid with my finger. Then I like to use a little bit of brown pencil liner to the outside half of my upper lash line for a bit of definition. I just smudge on the tiniest bit of the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Brown(Out)
which has a bit of sparkle. I then go in with something nude and brightening in the waterline of my eyes, lately I’ve been loving the Pixi Beauty Eye Bright Liner
