My Start To Finish Makeup Routine
If you missed the instagram stories on my Makeup Tutorial, I will add the YouTube video of that Start To Finish Process at the Bottom of this page.
Product List & My Thoughts
Face Primer – Pixi by Petra Flawless & Poreless Primer – I like this primer just fine, however I feel like I have not found the perfect primer quite yet. This will make my makeup last longer than if I don’t use it, however, not all day. It works for now while I hunt for the perfect primer for my face.
Eyeshadow Primer – Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion – This Primer is a life saver. My eye makeup is pretty heavy and eyeliner always tends to drool off of your face. So with this primer on first, my eye makeup will last sometimes 2 DAYS!
Eyeshadow Palette – Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette – I have only ever had this palette and i’ll probably keep buying it every time I need a new one… Thats how good it is. I wish they made a palette with all the colors I need in it, however, this palette is just good for those first layer basics I start with. I like that I can mix it up.
White Eyeshadow Palette – This is a Trio Palette by Almay. It’s not available online, but you can find it at your local Walmart. This would be the only palette you need to complete this look if thats where you wanted to begin.
Black Shadow – Maybelline Expert Wear Eyeshadow, Night Sky – I have spend a few pretty pennies looking for the best black eyeshadow, and I’m not sure if that exists for me. Which is ok! This one is the best in my opinion because I can use it lightly, or build it until its jet black! Most black eyeshadows don’t build well enough for me.
Face Wipe Makeup Remover – Aveeno Ultra-Calming Makeup Removing Wipes – I typically use the poop out of this wipes. I use them to take off my makeup and to clean up the fall out from the shadow. They are smooth and gentle, yet they get eery ounce of black off my eyes too!
Foundation – IT Bye Bye Foundation Full Coverage Moisturizer – Color Light – I prefer this over the CC cream by a landslide. I felt like the IT cosmetics CC cream was too heavy and cake-like. But this full coverage moisturizer is a game changer. I have a feeling I might run into some issues this summer, since it is a moisturizer, but i’ll let you know when I get there.
Beauty Blender – Beauty Blender – Isn’t exact but mine is really old. I can trust this brand because I’ve used it before.
Concealer & Tinted Moisturizer – Pixi by Petra illuminating Tint & Conceal – This is probably what ill use this summer for my whole face. The tinted moisturizer isn’t full coverage so it will help to balance out my face while still letting my tan & freckles shine through.
Under Eyey Finishing Powder – E.l.f. Prime & Stay Finishing Powder – Color Fair/Light – I don’t recommend this product but I attached it for you anyway 🙂
Fluffy Brush – Eco Tools Powder Makeup Brush – I only own EcoTools brushes… They are all great quality and last a long time.
Full Face Finishing Powder – Almay Smart Shade Finishing Powder – Color Light/Medium – I have had this finishing powder for YEARS! It doesn’t take much and always matches my face. It’s like a magic powder.
Highlighting Powder – Wet n Wild Highlighting Powder – Color Golden Flower Crown – O.K. This stuff is the best ever. I use it over my under eye concealer, on my upper cheek bone where the light hits your cheeks to add a reflection and brightening effect. It gives a really pretty glow.
Bronzer – NARS Bronzing Powder – Color Laguna – If you like a matte bronzer, you’ll love the NARS bronzer. It will most likely last me years too. A little goes a very long ways! I love that you can build this one too.
Eyeliner – Rimmel London Exaggerate Eye Definer – Waterproof in color Blackest Black – Ok for a waterproof eyeliner, I’e only found one thing I like EQUALLY and thats a PIXI pencil but it lasts like a week and is over $12… This stuff is the EXACT same and lasts way longer and really is waterproof. I always go back to this.
Mascara Primer – L’Oreal Primer Mascara – I don’t have eery many eyelashes and they are super short, so hang a primer really helped me to make them show. It really builds your lashes up, and then creates a length for you to apply your actual mascara too. It’s amazing.
Mascara – Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara – I can only really use this mascara because of the shape of the brush. Most brushes will poke me in the eye since I don’t have lashes or lids really, so this cured brush is the safe choice for me. I have poked my eye too many times… So I stick to this one. But it works wonderful in my opinion! I always get waterproof.
Compact Brush – Eco Tools Retractable Makeup Brush – perfect little travel brush.
Blush – L’Oreal True Match Blush – Color Sweet Ginger – This color looks much darker on the web than it is in real life. It’s a darker blush, perfect for darker complected skin tones.
Setting Spray – All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray – This is the stuff I can recommend 🙂 It’s THE BEST item that will ever be in your makeup bag.
Under Eye Corrector – Pixi by Petra Correcting Concentrate Brightening Peach – On days when I don’t want to put on makeup, but “look good, feel good” is a real thing, I use this stuff. Its a peach color so it corrects the bags under your eyes, and helps them blend with your skin. simple little fix for a natural look.
