Easy Every Day Makeup Routine

every day makeup routine

I love wearing makeup and getting ready each day. I’ve added a few new products to my beauty routine, so I wanted to share my most up to date list of “every day” makeup products and tools. Getting glam is my favorite way to make me feel more like myself … and just happier all around. I also love trying new products to mix it up a bit, so let’s get into it.

Every Day Foundation Favorites

I rotate my foundation daily based on my mood and how my skin is doing. I originally wrote this post a couple years ago about the top 5 foundations for women of color, and I updated it recently when I relaunched the website. Many of these products are still on my most used makeup list and I’ve added a couple newbies that I want to share.

New to the List:

Urban Decay Hydromaniac Tinted Glow Moisturizer 

This is a new discovery and I LOVE the application. With it being a tinted moisturizer, I anticipated that I would want to layer it with a more full coverage foundation, however, I think it looks so good by itself.

Tarte Hydroflex Serum Foundation

I got my makeup done recently by the Tarte team when they were in town and the makeup artist, Lex, used this foundation on me. It looked so good and I was really surprised by how much I liked it. The application is excellent and it is so lightweight.

Oldie but Goodies

Tarte Face Tape Foundation 

This is an old favorite of mine. I use it very frequently and love the way it looks on my skin. I’ve shared this one a lot, especially on Instagram!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation

Here is another foundation that I use often! I love how it wears all day long and the coverage that it gives. It is so beautiful.

On my Wishlist

I have seen so many people share the Armani Beauty Luminous Silk Perfect Glow Foundation. I have it in my cart right now at Sephora and plan to give it a try soon. I’ll be sure to let you know over on social when I do!
