Simple Everyday Glowy Makeup

Hello people of the internet! I'm currently having a bit of a moment with simple makeup. A huge reason behind that would be my skincare routine. And, I also love something simple that I can do in a half an hour or less. When you only have a half an hour to do your makeup you might think you have to strip away anything that makes it more than a basic look. I couldn't disagree with that more!

These have been my go-to face products for the last month! I start off with the Urban Decay Optical Illusion Complexion primer. Last year I had pretty much given up on finding a primer for my oily skin. Nothing seemed to keep it hydrated and flawless. After a lot of (youtube) research and help from my local Urban Decay counter, I finally found the one! This primer really blurs my pores and smoothes over any unwanted texture. 

I then add some of the YSL Touche Eclat Glow Shot onto the high points of my face. To start that whole "glow from within" look. Sometimes I use the L.A. Girl Pro.conceal under my eyes. But, lately, I've just been using it as an eye primer with a bit of translucent powder before any eyeshadow. I really went off the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation for a while. I think that had a lot to do with not being able to find a decent primer and using a foundation brush instead of a beauty blender.

Now, I spray my already damp beauty blender with some setting spray and go to town with a minimal amount of foundation. A little bit definitely goes a long way with this stuff. Before setting my makeup with the Essence All About Matt powder I like to add a bit more of the Touche Eclat glow shot to my nose and cheekbones. Then I use a small amount of this fixing powder all over my face just to set everything. Before spraying the Makeup Revolution Pro-Fix spray. While my skin is still damp I pop a ton of the Makeup Revolution Vivid Baked highlighter in Golden all over the high points of my face!

Eyes & Lips

Starting with my brows, I just brush them through with a clean spooly. I've been using the Bperfect Brow kit for a few years now. I find it to be hands down the best brow product for my own brows. It doesn't budge! I carve out my brows with pro.conceal and brush some clear brow gel in afterwards. 

Like, I said before I like to prime my eyelids with concealer and a bit of translucent powder. Lately, I've been using a mixture of the Morphe 35O 35 palette and the Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette. Usually just the more neutral shades and maybe an orange shade! One of my favourite products of 2017 was the Lancome Monsieur Big Eyeliner. It's such an amazingly dark eyeliner. And the felt tip makes it really easy to get a sharp wing. Afterwards, I use my favourite mascara, the Urban Decay Perversion mascara. Last but not least, I try to pick a dark-ish nude lipstick. For this look, I used the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Lolita.
