I’ve been shooting a lot of videos for work, and I thought it would be fun to share with y’all the makeup routine I’ve been doing for them! Since we’re all stuck in quarantine, use this as your opportunity to try some new makeup techniques or order some new products. I linked most of these from Amazon so you don’t even have to leave your house to pick them up.
I don’t always use a primer but if I know I have a long day ahead, I will try to put that on first so it keeps my makeup on longer. The ones I have been reaching for lately are the Revlon Rose Glow primer or the Milani Prime Light primer— both keep my makeup on and also have a little shimmer that makes your skin bright and fresh.
When it comes to foundation, most days I typically just wear a light tinted moisturizer like the IT Cosmetics CC Cream (literally the best ever). Lately though, since I have been shooting videos every day and want my skin to look a little more made up under the lights, I’ve been mixing that and the L’Oreal Infallible foundation. I love the way they look together and it lasts all day.
I’ve been using the L’Oreal Instant Age Rewind eye brightener for literally years. Get the brightener shade– not the colored one! I pat on just a few dots right under my eyes to cancel out some of my dark circles. Then, I add Tarte Shape Tape concealer on top of that and under my nose to conceal anything else that needs it. (If you’re looking for a drugstore concealer, I love the Maybelline Fit Me one too)
I put a little translucent powder on top of that concealer and on my T-zone just to cut down on any oil– I’m not really picky, but I recently have been loving the Revlon Candid loose powder.
This sounds scary, but a cream bronzer makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I promise it’s not scary. I use the NYX Bright Idea Illuminator as a bronzing stick in the shade “Maui Suntan.” Sadly it’s kind of hard to find, but I hear Physicians Formula’s new cream bronzer stick in Toffee is also amazing.
Wet n wild bronzer in “Ticket to Brazil” is one of the best things in the world and its under $5. I swear by this bronzer and use it on top of that cream– it just warms my face up without looking orange or fake.
Next comes my favorite, blush! My go-tos are the cult-favorite NARS Orgasm, Benefit Gold Rush or L’Oreal True Match in Baby Blossom. I have about 800 blushes though and honestly love them all… it’s hard for me to not like a blush.
I don’t always wear highlighter, especially if I have to shoot a video. But if I do, I either dip into my Urban Decay highlighter palette, any of Wet n Wilds, or the Essence Pure Nude sunlighter. The Essence and the Wet n Wild ones are both under $5 and all of them make great eyeshadow, too!
My new favorites for my mascara and brows are the Covergirl Uncensored mascara— it’s literally amazing– and the Revlon Brow Creator. Benefit still has my favorite brow product, but this is a close second.
And that’s it! I hope y’all enjoy this and it’s helpful. Let me know if you try any of these products and what you think of them!
