Everday Makeup Favorites

While I love testing out new products, everyday I find myself reaching for some old favorites to use with my experimenting and if you pull everything together in the end you find the collection of products pictured above that I like using to create a very soft and non-fussy daily look. I'd like to share with you some of my everyday favorites that always seem to wiggle their way back into my daily makeup routine no matter how much I try to branch out and be adventurous with new things.

  • Primer: For primer I have been loving the POREfessional by Benefit. This stuff really delivers when it says minimize pores, and it sets really fast onto my skin.
  • Foundation: For everyday looks I have been reaching more for a BB cream rather than a foundation and that would be the Garnier Skin Renew BB Cream. I have been more into a no-fuss lightweight look lately and this BB cream is perfect to achieve that even no makeup makeup look I've been after.
  • Blush: I love Instain by theBalm in Swiss Dot, however it is a little too brilliant for my taste by itself so by lightly blending it out with Hervana by Benefit gives me a very pretty flush.
  • Brows: My go to for brows is still itCosmetic's Brow Power, quickest brows with a perfect color match.
  • Eyeliner: The Jordana 12 HR Made to Last Liquid Eyeliner Pencil is amazing, so black and creamy it applies like a dream that just refuses to budge.
  • Shadow: For a neutral everyday I like to just apply a Maybelline Color Tattoo in Barely Branded all over the lid just for some subtle shimmer and to even out the color of my lids. I prefer to let my mascara do the talking on a daily basis.
  • Mascara: I have returned to my favorite power duo of mascaras which is two coats of Cover Girl's Clump Crusher followed by a coat of their Flamed Out mascara. Clump Crusher really curls my eyelashes even without a curler and Flamed Out really packs on the volume for a nice full and fluffy look.
  • Lips: Still loving my Maybelline Color Whisper in Make it Mauve. I just think it is just the most beautiful color that compliments any look.
What are some of your everyday favorites that you just can't live without?
