I have had a pretty consistent beauty routine over the years but switch it up from time to time when I find some new products that I love.
I've been doing this routine for quite a while now and I still love it. I like the natural warmth and glow look a lot and the skincare products have actually helped clear up my skin, so now I'm more confident in minimal makeup.

1. Pixi Glow Mist - I love to use this before I go to bed or in the mornings on days where I'll be going makeup-less. It refreshes and brightens up you skin and has helped even out my skin tone. Plus, I love having that dewy glow look.

2. Aveeno Clear Complexion Moisturizer - I put this on after every shower and as a primer too. It really softens my skin and makes it feel healthy. Definitely better than when I used Jergens lotion in the past.

3. Rimmel London Fix & Perfect Primer - This primer is great because it really does what it says it will, making your complexion look smoother and brighter while making your makeup last all day!

4. Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Concealer - I used to use the NYX concealer but I would run out so quickly without even using a lot, and it didn't seem to last as long as it should. I gave this Maybelline one a try and it is perfect. The texture blends so naturally and the coverage is great for redness, acne & scarring, and undereyes. Plus, it lasts all day as far as I'm concerned!

5. Rimmel London Matte 9-in-1 BB cream - This is my go-to before foundation. Unless I need super-coverage this is just perfect for me. It has a very warm tone, light weight, and fresh finish, all of which I love for summer!

6. Maybelline Super Stay Better Skin Foundation - Since I got the concealer, I thought the foundation would be good to try as well and it is. I believe that this is a drugstore dupe for Too Faced Born This Way foundation. It adds an airbrushed type of look to you without it looking unnatural, the coverage is amazing, and it lasts a long time. I'm really loving the Super Stay Better Skin collection from Maybelline!

7. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder - I needed a finishing powder and this one happened to be only $2 or $3 at Ulta so why not right? It is actually great. I brush it over my concealer and foundation, before using bronzer or highlight. I still get the natural glow I want but it mattifies the oily-shine looking part.

8. Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil Bronzer - This is the only bronzer I have been using for 2 years, it's about time for a new one. I just love how natural it looks, not a harsh dark line or anything. Plus, it smells like chocolate which is like heaven every morning putting on my makeup. It is a soft brown color which contours great not being an unnatural golden bronze.

9. L'Oréal True Match Lumi Illuminator - This is a great drugstore highlighting powder, I use it in the corners of my eyes, down the bridge of my nose, underneath my eyebrows, above my cupid's bow, and on my upper cheekbones. It is a cool-toned palette but there's a few different color options to choose form depending on your preference.

10. Urban Decay Naked Illuminated Shimmering Powder (in Luminous) - I love to brush this over the previous product for a little more glow. Never too much though because this is a little more like glitter shimmer instead of a solid powder. I absolutely love it though, but I'm addicted to highlight!

11. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Dip (in Blonde) - I've been really into doing my eyebrows over the last year. It's like a necessity for my everyday look now. I'm not sure how I went without it before. I love using this brow dip with a tiny angled liner brush (mine is ELF). It's buildable which is great because some days I wanna go for a lighter look and other days its go bold or stay home. 

12. Bare Minerals Lash Domination Mascara - I have always loved Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara but when I ran out of that I ended up getting this product in a goodie bag from a Bare Minerals pop-up event. I've been using it since and it definitely lengthens my lashes when I curl them first. It also goes on really thin so you have to layer a lot which can be annoying sometimes. Overall, good every day, on-the-go, mascara!
