It’s been awhile since I’ve done a beauty post & my routine has definitely been mixed up a bit w/ having two littles at home now! The quicker the morning routine, the better, and happier everrryone is! Here is my current, no-fuss beauty routine, which includes a few stellar drugstore finds:
L’oréal True Match Lumi Foundation in n4 (buff beige) – I had read so much about this drugstore foundation before buying it bc it is supposedly a dupe to the super expensive but highly raved about Armani foundation. While I haven’t ever tried the Armani, I can attest that this foundation absolutely makes you GLOW! My container is almost out so I’ve alreadya bought another in the shade N4 but I also bought the shade lighter for fall/winter! Seriously, my new foundation love!!!
Rimmel Bronzer in “Sun Dance” – The most natural, sun-kissed shade of bronzer – all at a drugstore price! I’ve tried loads of bronzers and this one is the best! I can’t believe how cheap and HOW GOOD it is!
Bobbi Brown Eye Opening Mascara – I switch mascaras frequently and have tried A TON! This one makes my lashes look very full!!!
Milani Baked Blush in “Luminoso” – A true NARS cult-favorite “Orgasm” dupe. This blush is sooo flattering on every type of skin tone! The reviews are so, so good for a reason. And, again, it’s a drugstore find! We love drugstore finds, right?! 🙂
Becca Highlighter in “Champagne Pop” – I splurged on this highlighter from Ulta bc I kept reading about it everywhere! I will never need another highlighter again as I don’t think any can get better than this. Natural looking but provides a very pretty glow. Will be a lifesaver during cold weather!
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette (especially the shade “Limit”) – I talk about this palette in every makeup post I do but it’s the best. I prefer rosier shades on my lids other than an occasional bronze look. It’s a bit pricier but lasts FOREVER!
NYX Butter Gloss – I’ve raved about this before but it’s by far my FAVORITE lip gloss! And it’s only $4.99!!! I have this in a few shades. “Tiramisu” is probably my go-to. This gloss feels way more expensive, like a high end lipgloss!
Love of Color One & Done Shadow Stick in “Champagne Problems” – I recently received this in my monthly Birchbox & I have been using it in the corner of my eyes to hide my omnipresent sleep deprivation! It does the trick and is a beautiful shade.
Benefit Gimme Brow (#5) – This stuff is always sold out of Ulta for a reason! A couple of quick swipes and my brows look so much fuller, darker, and filled-in! It’s amazing! I’ve purchased this product many, many times!
Colorescience Bronzing Perfector Primer – This primer smooths everything before I apply my foundation. Love that it has SPF.
** I use the e.l.f. Ultimate Blending Brush (only $6 & an absolute steal!!! Very high quality!!!) for my foundation, IT Soft Touch Blush (that I got in an amazing set that would be a perfect gift for anyone) for my bronzer and highlighter, and another brush I picked up from Sephora (sorry don’t remember the details) for my blush.
