Daily Makeup Routine

So I’m no makeup expert, but I recently got a request for a post about my daily makeup routine! Since I don’t want to officially claim to know what I’m doing, I am just going to highlight the products I cannot live without, and the steps I take each morning.

{If you haven’t caught my “Currently Coveting” posts over the last year and a half, then let me catch you up to speed: they’re very focused on skin care items. I am constantly searching for the perfect product to cure my facial burdens, and when I find something worth sharing, I take to my blog. Some of the items I coveted in the posts are very important parts of my makeup routine, i.e. BB Cream by Smashbox – literally cannot live without this stuff}

I listed the makeup items in the order I apply them. I stay very true to this routine, and have been doing it this way for a while! I finally found products that I am loyal to, and I stand by them 100%! Feel free to ask me any questions if you want more specifics 🙂 XO
