Daily Makeup Routine

Although not entirely intentional, in the last few years I have paired down my daily makeup routine.  I've focused on tried and true products that work on my skin and can create a daily look. This makeup look is simple, polished and my go to for work or day time activities. It's also a great base that I can add on to if I want to step things up or have a night out.

I didn't realize until putting this post together that most of my favorite products are Bare Minerals.  I have trouble finding makeup that matches my skin tone and bare minerals has all of their products in a light enough tone!


I prep my skin with my favorite moisturizer with SPF and let it soak in. Then I use this concealer to cover up my dark circles or redness around my nose and lips. I blend the concealer with a wet beauty blender. I have tried imitations and found that there is a difference. The beauty blender is worth the extra $$! 

On any days that I need a bit more touch up, I'll use this Correcting Concealer with my beauty blender as well! To set my concealer, I use this bare minerals foundation in Fairly Light. On a normal day I don't wear full foundation all over my face but just use it as the setting powder where I've put concealer. For a night out or nicer event at this point I'll put some foundation all over my face!

Next I add a bit of color to my face with this bronzer and blush. Using a big fluffy brush (like this one) I lightly put Hoola Matte Bronzer on my cheeks, nose and around my hairline. Next I add this blush to the apples of my cheeks.


If you've read Everyday K for long, you'll know my love for lip color. I like bright colors and think they complement me best. Because of this, I tend to focus my makeup more on my lips and keep my eyes simple.

I've had trouble finding a brow pencil that matches my brows until I found this one! It's a great color and consistency. It fills my brows in well while still looking natural. Once my brows are filled in I curl and coat my lashes with my favorite Blinc mascara! Besides highlight, this is all I do to  my eyes.


One of my favorite beauty products is highlighter!! I'll be doing a full post all about it soon but for now I'll share how I use it daily. With an eye shadow brush I blend this highlighter in the shade light to medium on my brow bone and in the inner corner of my eyes. Then with a fluffier brush I'll put some on my cheekbones and on my cupids bow!


For me, this simple polished look is asking for a fun lip! I like a pretty pink or coral color for the Summer! Lately, I have been using lipsense because it lasts the whole work day. I'm going to do a pro and con post for lipsense soon!
