Everyday Makeup Routine

Makeup flatlay FTW!
Firstly, prep the lips. I tend to get really dry lips in the morning. Loving the raspberry flavour scent, it reminds me of my childhood candy.

Photo Finish Foundation Primer
Not to prime is a crime. Period. I use a pea size amount all over my face but more on my cheeks and forehead. 

City Block Sheer SPF 25

I made it a habit to use sunblock everyday. This tinted sun block give me just a little coverage which is alright since it is going to be layered with foundation.

Anastasia Beverly Hill
Brow Wiz (Dark Brown)
I find it really easy to do my brow once I outline the shape with the brow wiz.

Bobbi Brown
Dark Brow Kit
I tend to be self-conscious if my brow is too dark. As you can see, I use more of the lighter shade but I'm currently transitioning to the darker one to match my darker eye shadows.

Urban Decay
Eyeshadow Primer Potion
Apply all over the eye lids to avoid crease throughout the day.

Tartelette Amazon Clay Matte Eyeshadow
I am currently enjoying this matte palette at the moment. So much neutral shades to choose from.

Probably need more blending for the eye shadows
I tend to apply a thick eye shadows base and blend them out later.

Sheer Glow Foundation (Santa Fe)
Teint Infusion Ethereal Natural Finish Foundation (écru)
2 drops of Nars and 1 drop of Sephora. Sometimes, I get the colour right but I often make my foundation a bit too light. Practice, practice, practice. 

Canola Honey Oil
Drop 3 or 4 drops of facial oil on my brush to blend the foundation. I find that this method made the application so much smoother. 

Perfecting Concealer (Shade C)
I have a few acne scars and this Stila concealer is really a life saver. It's dense and covers quite well.

Instant Age Rewind (fair)
Highlighting the under eyes, forehead, nose and chin area. Next, use a damp beauty blender to dap and blend outwards.

Laura Mercier
Translucent Loose Setting Powder
One of my favourite setting powder. I tend to get really oily by the end of the day but ever since I use this powder, I realised it help with the problem.

I think I have a little something on my face.
Kat Von D
Ink Liner (Color Trooper - Ultra Black)
A quick cat eyes,

Cover Girl
Star Wars Super Sizer Mascara
and a little mascara.

Ambient® Lighting Edit
Contour and blush.

Poisetint Cheek & Lip Stain
Apply on the lips and use a clean finger to spread it evenly. The lip balm from earlier made it easier for this step. It dries fairly quickly and on a normal days I will just leave it at that. Basically, I don't really like using heavy lipstick on a daily basis.

Urban Decay
All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray
Generous sprays on the cheeks, T-zone area and the chin. Let the make up melt into the skin. This is by far my favourite part of my routine.

Done!i love how 
I love this routine for an everyday look. I would say that I took about 15 - 20 mins to get this look together. it's not too over the top and subtle.
