The Makeup I’m loving this Spring

links + small things

It’s not profoundly different from how I typically wear my makeup (I certainly have a look I’m comfortable with that I repeat almost daily) but I wanted to have a resource post with everything I’ve been using listed out!

You can watch a quick video on how I’ve been doing my makeup here!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Sheer – this is a really great foundation if you like sheer/light coverage but don’t want a ton of shine!

Huda Beauty Concealer – I absolutely love the coverage and finish of this concealer, but the packaging is less than ideal since the product seeps out.

Make Up For Ever Full Cover Concealer – the best concealer for blemishes.

Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder for Under Eye – I always use this no matter what concealer I’m using under my eyes. It sets the concealer and adds brightness!

MAC Paintpot in Painterly – a really perfect neutral base for the eyelids.

Artist Couture Supreme Nudes Eyeshadow Palette – this is a neutral palette full of buildable, blendable shades.

NYX Epic Smoke Liner in Mocha Match – this is a darker brown than the shade I have called “Nude Haze” and just as easy to apply and blend in!

Lancome Liner Idole – I’ve been using this liner to lay a thin line along the base of my lashes and it makes my lash line look much more defined.

Lancome Lash Idole – I love this mascara! It gives clean definition and lift without clumps.

Tarte Lights Camera Lashes Mascara – this mascara builds serious volume in only a few swipes.

Anastasia Brow Wiz in Taupe – I like to keep my brow routine rather simple, and this brow pencil is thin enough to give the right amount of control for creating hair-like strokes.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara – the only mascara I wear on my lower lashes!

Charlotte Tilbury Bronze and Glow Palette (just the contour) – I’ve been using this palette for years! The contour shade is the best neutral shade for my skin tone.

ColourPop Bronzer in Avila Beach – This is a nice warm bronzer shade for lighter skin tones.

Rare Beauty Blush in Happy – it packs a punch but that is how I like my blush!

Rare Beauty Highlighter in Champagne Pop – I just need to press my brush into this powder and then press it onto the tops of my cheekbones for the prettiest shimmer and reflection.

Anastasia Gloss in Soft Pink – this is a very easy-to-wear soft pink shade and the gloss feels comfortable on the lips.

Lune and Aster Lipstick in Yes We Can – I love a sheer wash of color to the lips and this color is a very easy-to-apply pink. It’s the kind of lip product that you don’t need a mirror for applying.

Don’t forget the Sephora Savings Event starts SOON, so take advantage of that time to do some beauty product shopping!
