Happy Monday! We’ve got the Christmas music blaring, peppermint mocha creaming flowing and we’re getting into the holiday spirit today. I wanted to kick off the week with an updated everyday makeup routine because I have been getting so many questions about what I’ve been doing lately. I’ve shared in a few posts, but thought it would be great to put everything into one post for you guys to make it super easy to find.
Then, I apply my foundation with a damp beauty blender! My all-time favorite foundation is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, but it’s on the pricey side, so lately I’ve been reaching for Nars Sheer Glow and loving it! It gives a really pretty medium coverage and I use the color “Stromboli”.
I set everything with the Charlotte Tilbury powder in “1 Fair”. The key to this is making sure you use a damp beauty blender to set, so the powder doesn’t sink into any fine lines. This stuff is bomb and super finely milled, so it doesn’t make you look 98 years old! ha
I’ve been very into cream blush lately. I’ve watched a ton of supermodel makeup tutorials lately and they all seem to use cream blush. My current favorite is “Formentera” by Charlotte Tilbury. Again, I just apply it with my fingers and use the warmth to really melt it in.
I’ve been using the palette for years, but over the past few weeks it’s been my #1 most used color. I use the color “2 Enhance” in my crease and lightly use it on my lid for a smokey but day-time appropriate cranberry eye.
This next step is a bit random but I have been obsessed! I use another Charlotte Tilbury Palette and again I only use 1 shade, but instead of using it on my eyes, I use the shade “2 Enhance” to contour my nose. It sounds so random, but I swear by this shade and have never found anything as perfect for contouring!
