Everyday Makeup Routine

So, is the fall weather ever going to arrive?  It has been in the 80s and 90s this past weekend and although it’s kind of nice to have this great weather in Chicago, I just want to wear sweaters and booties!  I’ve been trying to wear fall gear and it just isn’t working out – it’s way too hot outside!  Also, I know I’m wishing for cooler weather, but come December I’m going to regret that wish immediately!  I’ll take summer weather over winter weather any day.

Because it has been so hot out, I’ve still been wearing my summer makeup items.  These products can definitely take the heat!  Basically, I need to make sure that my makeup doesn’t melt off my face throughout the day.  In the fall and winter I don’t need to worry about that so much and so the products that I use change.  

For an everyday look, I try and keep it relatively simple.  All of these products have been items that I’ve worn for a long time and I know that they work well!

Shop the look:

On the Eyes/Brows:

MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre – I use this as an eyeshadow primer.  It works really well to keep your eyeshadow on all day!

Morphe Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow Palette – Hands down best eyeshadow palette I’ve ever owned.  You need this in your life.  The only problem?  It sells out very quickly!

L’Oreal Lash Paradise Mascara – I love mascara.  If there was one beauty item that I can’t live without, this is it.  Also, this mascara from the drugstore is AMAZING!

Benefit Precisely My Brow – This is a pretty good brow pencil.  I don’t go crazy with filling in my brows and this does the job just fine.

Anastasia Clear Brow Gel – Need your brows to stay in place?  You need this product!

On the Face:

Becca Backlight Priming Filter – I’ve gone back and forth with primers and this one I really like!  It gives your skin a little glow!

Too Faced Born this Way Foundation – I’m on my third bottle of this stuff.  It is so great and you can build it up if needed.

MAC Pro Longwear Concealer – This stuff is no joke.  If you have dark circles, this bad boy covers it up in no time!

Laura Mercier Translucent Powder – This is another product that has been a favorite of mine for a long time.  I think I’m on my fourth one!  It is seriously amazing at setting your makeup.

Benefit Hoola Bronzer – I’ve talked about this bronzer before.  It is just the perfect color for contouring or bronzing the face!

Benefit Dandelion Blush – I tend to go for lighter blushes on a day to day basis.  This pink one is subtle yet pretty!

On the Lips:

MAC Brave Lipstick – This is one of my favorites and I wore it on my wedding day.  Such a pretty neutral color!
