My Everyday Makeup Tutorial

I’m so excited to finally share my everyday makeup tutorial for you guys via YouTube! This one has been a long time coming, and the delay has just been from me dragging my feet to film, edit and upload a video. I’ve only created one other video before (a hair tutorial, but it’s SO old lol), and it took me forever to do, so I just really was avoiding the work involved, haha! The more I grow on Instagram, the more questions I get asked on my makeup, so it’s long overdue. 🙂 I actually love the idea of getting on YouTube more though, so since this one didn’t take quite as long as my last, I’m more motivated to get a new hair tutorial up for you! I hope to get that up in December yet, so hold me accountable. 😉 If you haven’t already, I would love it if you subscribe to my channel! I promise that will be extra motivation for me to continue posting videos.

Oh by the way… I clipped back my bed-head hair in this video so it stayed out of my face, but I didn’t style it whatsoever prior to filming, so it looks real bad at the end, ha! And I also forgot to put on a lip color. Who am I?! Lip products are my favorite of all. My everyday lip colors are Giorgio Armani Beauty Ecstasy Shine Lipstick in “100 – Smile”, MAC Patent Polish in “Make Me Proud” or Nudestix Gel Color in “Pulse”.


Mac Prep & Prime Fix+
Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation (I’m wearing shade “Ivory Beige” and wear “Desert Beige” when I am more pale)
Sigma Beauty F80 Flat Kabuki Brush
NARS Creamy Concealer in “Custard”
Real Techniques Expert Face Brush
Givenchy Prisme Libre Loose Powder
** Over the past 2 weeks, I’ve been skipping my foundation and powder for “everyday” makeup, and using MAC Studio Fix Plus Powder Foundation in NW35. It’s a powder foundation, so it’s much quicker to apply, and I don’t have to set it with powder! The Estee Lauder one is definitely my holy grail, but this one makes getting ready much faster in the morning. My favorite lightweightPerricone MD No Makeup Foundation Serum foundation is the . Bonus: It’s really great for your skin, too!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in “Diffused Light” (SO good and you get a lot of product. I like to use it for setting my underage, but also works for setting your foundation or for a highlight!)
Elf Blush Brush (use for highlighter and setting under eye powder)
NARS Bronzer in “Laguna”
Real Techniques “Blush” Brush (perfect for bronzer in my opinion!)
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in “Paaarty”
Sigma F15 Duo Fibre Blush Brush
Benefit Cosmetics Dandelion Twinkle Highlighter
Urban Decay Anti-Aging Primer Potion (eyeshadow primer)
Marc Jacobs Beauty Eye-Conic Palette in “Glambition” (used shades “She Was” all over lid, blend “Infamous” and “Seeking” in crease, and line with “Over the Top”
Real Techniques Oval Eyeshadow Brush
Sigma Beauty E25 Blending Brush (I’m using the travel size, which is why it looks different from the pic online)
♡ Trim Eyelash Curler from Target (I recently switched to the Sheido Eyelash Curler, and wow… such a difference!)
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow in “04-Medium”
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo Powder in “Brunette/Dark Brown”
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brush #12

If you have experience with YouTube, I’d love to hear your tips and tricks for filming! I think I just need a better set-up. It was tricky not being able to see myself in the video or know if the video was still filming as I went. So yeah, a work in progress, but we’re getting somewhere at least. 😉
