The Sephora Spring Savings Event is here! They only do this a few times a year so it’s a great time to stock up on your faves or try something new you’ve been eyeing. I thought it would be the perfect time to do an updated video of my simple everyday makeup routine. Many of the products I’m using are ones that I’ve used for years. They’re my holy grail, tried-and-true favorites that work well for my skin and overall makeup routine.

Being a new mom, I don’t always have time to do a full face of makeup and I typically only do this full routine if I’m filming or shooting content. It looks great on camera but also translates beautifully in person and doesn’t look caked on. On the other days, I pick and choose a few key products to make me feel put together and ready to take on the day.

Sephora Fall Savings Event:

  • Code TIMETOSAVE 30% off Sephora Collection
  • 20% off for Rouge Members (10/27-11/6)
  • 15% off for VIB Members (10/31-11/6)

If you’re curious which products I use for my hair, I have multiple posts on those products and routines found here.

Simple Everyday Makeup Routine

To start, I go in with the Charlotte Tilbury flawless filter in shade 2 and put it on the high points of my face for a subtle glow. This product is 100% worth all the hype it receives on social media. You can wear it alone for a light and glowing complexion, or layer it under makeup.

Now, we’re ready for foundation. I use a damp beauty sponge to blend my foundation, the Dior Forever Skin Glow foundation in color 2CR. This foundation has become a staple for me! It’s more on the glowy side, which I really love. However, this foundation does come in a matte version as well.

Next, I go in with my favorite concealer in the color vanilla. I’ve also been using this concealer for years. It’s a hydrating concealer that gives great coverage to your under eyes and doesn’t crease or look cakey. I find that it makes my eyes look awake when I need it most!

Now that we have a great base, I love to add some color. I start with liquid blush from Rare Beauty in the shade hope. I’ve been using this product for over a year, and a little goes a long way. This product is never ending! I use the same beauty sponge to work this in. I’ve really loved using this liquid blush because I find that the cream texture gives a more natural look.

Next, I apply bronzer with this bronzer stick from Rare Beauty in the shade happy sol. Using a brush this time, I work this product into my cheekbones, bring it up to my forehead a little, and down to my jawline.

Now to add some highlight, I reach for the Iconic London liquid highlight in the shade original, which is a champagne-toned shimmer. The tiniest bit of this product goes a long way. I prefer to dab a little bit onto my fingers and apply it to the top of my cheekbones. I find that using my fingers to apply this liquid highlighter helps the product to blend better and creates a more natural look.

To top off the skin products, I use this setting and finishing powder in color 01 for fair skin tones. It’s so fine and natural looking, and it doesn’t take away the glow from the other products.

I start with my brows by using this eyebrow gel in the color 2 which is a warm golden blonde. This is a really natural product that doesn’t feel like too much on your brows. This gel will also keep your brows in place and help them look more full. I blend it a bit with a brow brush.

Next, I use the MAC Cosmetics paint pot cream eyeshadow to cover my entire eyelid. I use this as an eyeshadow primer to even our my eyelids. Then, I go in with eyeshadow palette from Tarte. I use the color vivacious all over my eyelids, and then I work the color invigorate into my crease.

For mascara, I use the ILIA Limitless mascara. I love this mascara for several reasons. I find that it’s really lengthening, adds volume, and it feels like it’s a step up from an everyday mascara. I also find that it’s not clumpy, and it’s super easy to remove.

To improve the overall health of my eyelashes, I’ve been using this GrandeLASH Lash Enhancing Serum. I’ve been really impressed with the results of this lash serum and I’ve seen a big improvement in the length and volume of my natural lashes ever since I started using it. Curling my eyelashes with this curler is easier, and my mascara goes on better too. You can use code STRAWBERRYCHIC directly from Grande Cosmetics for 15% off.

Then I apply this eyeliner in the shade Mad Max Brown. Sometimes I do this before I apply mascara, and sometimes I do it after. I don’t have a specific routine for the way I apply eyeliner, but I find that it works well either way. I’ve been using this same eyeliner for a long time, and it’s a staple item for me.

To prep my lips, I always start by applying this lip conditioner. I find that when I consistently use this lip conditioner my lipstick and lipgloss go on and stay on better.

Then, I line my lips with this longwear lip pencil by Chanel in shade 156. I lightly line my lips, and I find that this liner has a really natural look to it. The liner helps define your lips and helps my lipstick last longer. Then, I go over the liner with this Dior lipstick in shade 219. Finally, I finish the look on my lips with this gloss in the color beige. This is another product I’ve loved for a long time now. I find that this gloss doesn’t get clumpy, doesn’t dry out my lips, and it wears really well.

If you love lip products, this post is for you!
