The first step in my routine is to protect and hydrate the skin. I use a daily moisturizer and under eye cream to help with my gnarly dark circles… I blame it on the tons of homework I get each night.  Lastly, my lips are always dry so I apply whatever my favorite lip balm is at the moment.

Eyebrows are always done first in my book because they help frame your face and direct how and where eyeshadow/contour/highlight will be applied. I like using the Benefit brow pencil to shape the front of eyebrows.

One tip I’d add for people who fill in eyebrows is to comb them out while doing it. This helps to prevent over drawing and making them too dark.

One reason I love this brow pencil is that it’s double ended, having the product on one and a brush on the other. My eyebrows and mascara are usually the most time consuming part of my daily routine.

Here they are finished, the angle and lighting makes them seem uneven but trust me, they aren’t!

Ah my eyelashes are my favorite thing about myself if it ever comes down to looks! I take a lot of time enhancing them so I don’t pull any out or have them look short and clumpy.

Eyelashes are delicate, so I like making it as easy as possible for myself when I take my mascara off at the end of the day. This Tarte primer does the trick! I lightly brush this on before applying anything else. Here’s a tip; do one eye at a time if you use more than one mascara. Applying one right after another while the first mascara is wet allows less clumps to form!

Clump Crusher by Covergirl is my base mascara. It adds just enough volume and helps darken them.

Being a blonde, my eyelashes tend to lighten at the tips so I make sure to never miss those!

The second mascara is Telescopic by L’Oréal. This gives me more length and lots of color. My main purpose for mascara is for color. I have pretty long eyelashes, but they aren’t easy to see!

Face makeup is the next step in my routine . I HATE the look and feel of foundation so I use concealer all over. The Maybelline Fit Me concealer is super creamy so it blends well and doesn’t leave any splotches. The Covergirl concealer helps even out the color and brighten my under eyes.

My cheeks have a lot of redness so the darker shade is used to cover that up.

Hands down, a beauty blender is the way to go for any liquid makeup product. I dampen mine and pat the product into my skin.

With everything blended, here’s the finished look half way through.

Eyes! My favorite high-end makeup company is Tarte- everything smells delicious and the colors are so pretty for every product. The Tartelette pallet has every basic color plus some. It’s only 48 dollars too!

Along with being blonde, pale skin is another struggle. I conceal my eyelids to hide veins and allow even application. My eyelashes are worked around so they don’t get messed up!

I start off with a basic matte nude color. I prefer to keep my eyes natural at school.

To add depth, I use a blending brush to apply a light brown shade into my crease.

Another “hack” I can offer is to look up when finishing your crease color. This allows you to see if the eyes are even. A cool undertone to the brown shadow makes my eyes pop and doesn’t make the eye makeup look dirty.

3/4 of the way done and here’s the look so far!

To set my face makeup, I use the matching Fit Me powder. I like doing my powder products at the end to avoid rubbing it off.

Swirl the brush in the product and tap before applying to the face! As you can see I found the puff of powder very amusing!

NARS has the BEST bronzer. It blends so well and is easy to build. I apply my bronzer to the hollows of my cheeks, temples, and nose.

I’m back again with another Tarte product. Blush isn’t vital to my routine because my cheeks get rosey naturally, but it’s nice to use when the winter blues drain away all your color. Never forget to smile!

Somehow, I’ll apply more blush to my right cheek than my left. Does this happen to anyone else? Here I am evening it all out.

Nevertheless, I am a follower of the highlighting trend. I keep mine more laid back than most. Occasionally I’ll see some girls with too much and it ends up looking oily, so I steer clear from “the glow” and go towards a nice shimmer.
