I get asked all the time what my makeup routine is and what products I use. It has been happening more and more recently, so I decided I needed somewhere to send everyone when they ask. So here we have it… Emily’s Makeup Routine.
Shop Emily’s Makeup Routine:
Even though I do change my makeup routine up once in a while, it has stayed fairly consistent. I use a lot of the same products that I used back in college – but I have definitely added in some new products over the years. What I think you will like is that I use a combination of drug store products with higher end products. For most categories of my makeup routine, I have a high end product that I love and then a low end product as well. Sometimes – I only actually have the drugstore option. For example – I’ve NEVER bought a high end eyeliner – because my $7 eyeliner from the drugstore is the best, and I’ve never strayed.
Emily’s Makeup Routine:
Vintner’s Daughter: I start with this amazing face oil every single day. I know the price tag is hefty, but it is totally worth it. After washing your face, put two drops on your fingertips, and pat it into your skin. I especially love it for under my eyes and on my forehead where I tend to be especially dry. Let it sit for 10-15 minutes before you apply your makeup. It helps your makeup go on smooth and gives your skin the most beautiful dewey look.
Foundation – Full Coverage:
Giorgio Armani: This is the best matte full coverage foundation I have found. It goes on smooth, never looks shiny, and it covers ALL my melasma! I wear the shade 3.5.
It Cosmetics CC Cream: This CC cream is what I usually wear during the day. It is pretty full coverage, dewey, and it feels nice and moisturizing on your skin.
Maybelline Whip: I have been using this amazing foundation since college, and I still love it. It goes on weightlessly and is perfectly full coverage.
Charlotte Tilbury: If I am at home for the day, but still have to look presentable, this is what I wear. It is super light, moisturizing, and it gives you a nice soft finish.
Tarte Shape Tape:This concealer is SO amazing. It covers any blemishes you may have, and my undereye circles literally vanish when I put it on.
It Cosmetics Undereye:If I need a concealer that is a little more hydrating – this one is amazing as well!
Maybelline Undereye:If you’re looking for an $8 quick fix, Ashley and I swear by this one!
