5 Day Makeup Routine

I usually start my day by mindlessly looking through social media for and no good reason end up losing an hour of my day! I’m working towards being mindful of my mornings and using the time wisely to get my head clear and ready for the day.

Recently I posted about my reasoning for starting this trend (for myself… my own trend… not saying other people follow my lead at all!). So here is space where I will collect my thoughts about these products. Call it a mini review. But for me, it is going to be my way of tracking all of my products (that I know I don’t need).

Primer

Becca Backlight Priming Filter smells nice and I like using it under medium coverage foundations to give me a little bit more dimension to my skin. I have oily skin but I don’t find this to add to my oily situation.

Foundation

Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation has a spatula of all things to get the product out?! It’s okay because I place the product on the back of one of my hands and rub it in with my fingers. I find that I like using a makeup sponge afterward to blend out any streaks. This foundation is pretty awesome for being a $6 foundation.

Contour

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation Stick was purchased a while ago because it was on sale and I knew it was always going to be a contour product. I don’t think I’m in love with this product anymore.

Concealer

Too Faced Born This Way Naturally Radiant Concealer is usually saved for my “light makeup” days because I don’t think it helps to cover much of my undereye darkness. It is still pleasant to use.

Setting Powder

Revlon Photoready was almost forgotten! I’m so used to using my RCMA powder but found that this one has the right color for me and sets my foundation nicely without having the powdery finish.

Bronzer

E.L.F. Blush/Bronzer in Fiji-matte. I love this product. But I think it is not the right color for me right now. I think it is a bit too warm.

Eyebrow

NYX Micro Brown Pencil in Espresso is a great product and easy to work with. This color is too warm for me, but it’s okay for right now.

Eyeshadow

The Becca Ombre Rouge Eye Palette was not appreciated when I first purchased this palette. I was expecting it to have all matte shadows for my warm plum eye looks. So I was disappointed. But after doing a few challenges, I find that it is a great palette to work with. The shades are satin like so they give some dimension to your eye look without having sparkles.

Setting Spray

MAC Fix+ was purchased because everyone on YouTube was talking about it. It’s okay but I wished that I had secured the limited edition scented version to make my makeup routine end on a high note.

*Missing: Mascara was missing from this picture. Honestly, this makeup routine was used in the beginning of the month so I can’t remember which mascara was used. Whoops!
