Everyday Makeup Routine

Hey, ladies! Recently, I have been getting questions on my everyday makeup routine and my go-to face makeup routine so I decided to sit down with you all today and share with you my everyday makeup routine. Obviously my eyeshadow and lip products vary from day-to-day depending on how I am feeling and/or my outfit but for the most part my makeup routine stays pretty consistent. Before I start to ramble, let’s get on into it…

Processed with VSCO with hb2 presetThis is the makeup look I will be creating for you all today!

To begin the look I am going to be priming my skin with the Nivea Men’s Shave Balm Primer. This will ensure that my makeup lasts all day and will prevent any oils from surfacing. I am then taking the Maybelline Matte Fit Me Foundation on a damp beauty blender and buffing this into my skin to create an even, flawless coverage. This foundation is perfect for all skin types and provides a medium coverage, plus it’s only $7 from the drugstore!

I am then going to be applying the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer under my eyes in a triangle shape to highlight my face and cover any vains that may be showing through my foundation. I am then setting my whole face with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder to keep my face looking matte all day.

Then I am going a bit out-of-order and filling my brows in with the Anastasia Dip Brow in the shade ‘Blonde’.  I prefer to fill my eyebrows in before contouring and highlighting so my face looks somewhat proportional. I am then switching back to the face by taking the Lumene Bronzer and contouring my cheek bones, temples, and nose.

I am then highlighting using the tips of my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, cupids bow, inner corner, and brow bone with the shadow ‘Champagne Truffle’ from the Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette. Don’t be afraid to use your shadows as highlighters, they tend to work the same! I am then switching back to the eyes and applying a brown Buxom eyeliner to my waterline. I love adding a light liner to my look if I am avoiding eyeshadow that day.

I am then doubling up on mascara for the day to make sure my lashes pop. I am applying two coats of the Maybelline Chaotiques Mascara to my upper lashes and then taking the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara to lengthen my lower lashes.

I am then applying the LipSense duo in the color ‘Plum Pretty’ for a gorgeous, long-lasting color. I am amazed at how long this product lasted on my lips and how well it held up as I ate, drank, and made my way through the day. Feel free to check out their products by emailing

Well that is it for my everyday makeup routine, I hope you all enjoyed! What makeup do you wear on an everyday basis?! Let me know in the comments below along with any other questions, comments, or requests you may have for me. Wishing you all the best today and always. With love, McKenz.
