My Current Makeup Routine

My Current Make Up Routine

Hey everyone! Since I went back to work this month, things have got a little chaotic trying to balance everything in my schedule. That explains why I have been MIA on my blog! But I think I got it figured out, and I'll try to keep updating y'all weekly with a new post. I know I promised the story on how Eric & I met last week, but he convinced me to postpone it as our wedding gets closer. (3 more months!!) So for now I'll fill you guys in as life happens in between. Today I am sharing what I'm currently using for my everyday makeup routine. I am no makeup guru, I'm actually super simple when it comes to make up believe it or not. This routine takes me a good 10 minutes & I'm set!:) 
Disclaimer: I am a bareMinerals Makeup junkie!

Before applying makeup, I clean my face with this gentle facial wash. I use this as a daily morning and night cleanser. I was introduced to this product a couple years ago by my dermatologist and it has been my best friend ever since. (I currently use almost the entire CeraVe line, I simply love their skincare products)

After washing my face, I then apply Thayers Witch Hazel Alcohol Free Toner in the Cucumber scent. My coworker & great friend Marlyn recommended this product to me before school started.
Although I’ve only been using it for a couple weeks, and it's too early to give you an honest review,
I am loving it so far!
I am loving how smooth & fresh it makes my face feel, and the scent is amazing! (also available Unscented, Rose Petal, and Lavender)

Next i apply my CeraVe AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion with SPF 30.
My favorite thing about this product is that it is a moisturizer and sunscreen both in 1.
It's a Win Win;)

To prime my face I use bareMinerals Prime Time Original Foundation Primer.

For my everyday makeup routine, I use bareMinerals Original Loose Powder Foundation
with SPF 15, using the bareMinerals Finish Foundation Brush.
I love that this product if not full coverage, so it compliments your natural look.
I was honestly really skeptical about this product at first because it is a powder, and I thought it would definitely dry my face, but boy was I wrong! The key to use this powder is to really buff it in. Doing so will leave your skin with a smooth radiant finish.
When I am going for full coverage look, I use Jane Iredale's Glow Time Full Coverage BB Cream with SPF 25, using my bareMinerals Smoothing Face Foundation Brush.

 I use bareMinerals Mineral Veil Finishing Powder to set my foundation, using my bareMinerals Finish Foundation Brush.

I like applying bareMinerals Warmth All Over Face color bronzer along
my hairline and cheekbones to give my face more dimension,
and so I don't look too pale either.

I'm pretty basic to mascaras, this ones working out well for me. Loreal voluminous lash paradise mascara.

My best friends are chapsticks. They're low maintenance, (but easily losable), yet I cant complete my makeup routine without. I use Burt's Bees Cucumber Mint Moisturizing Lip Balm.
I’m not much of a lipstick junkie since my lips are so small… so I only own one!
My favorite lipstick ever is Kat Von D's Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in the shade Bow N Arrow. It’s actually the only shade I wear, and at the moment I can't live without.

These are my everyday makeup products. Are you a bareMinerals makeup junkie as well? If so what are your favorites? Feel free to comment below!
