My Makeup Routine

I haven't done a makeup routine in so long it is very long overdue. I get a few questions about what I use on my face so I decided to do a post dedicated to it. I can say my makeup routine is always changing. Some of the things in my routine are recent purchases but at the same time have become my holy grail items in my makeup bag. 

1. After I wash my face I moisturize my face with POND'S dry 
skin cream because I have very dry skin

2. Before I do my foundation I like to do my brows. I recently bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in the shade Chocolate. I apply this with an angled brush. Then when I'm done filling them in I like to clean them up a bit so I use LA Girl Pro Conceal in Pure Beige to highlight under the brow. The Pro Conceal is so hard to find in Canada so your best bet is getting it online.

3. Then when I'm done with my brows I take my Real Techniques buffing brush and apply my NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in the shade Syracuse. I really love this foundation. It gives you  medium to full coverage without leaving your face feeling cakey.

4. After concealing I highlight. Taking the same pure beige from LA Girl I put it on my forehead, under my eyes, on the bridge of my nose, on my cupid's bow and my chin.To blend it out I use my fingers.

5. After I do all that highlighting I contour. I know many people love to contour with powder but I choose to contour with foundation. I use MAC's Matchmaster in 8.5 and 9.0.contour around the perimeter of my face and the hollows of my cheek. 

6. Then when I'm done contouring I set my highlight with my Ruby Kisses HD Set N' Forget setting powder in Banana or the new Ben Nye Banana Powder I picked up. If you don't have the moula for the Ben Nye Powder the Ruby Kisses is a good alternative. Ben Nye products are also hard to find in Canada. I picked up mines at a theater store in Downtown Toronto.

7. The last step in my face makeup routine is to set everything with my Sephora Mattifying Foundation in the shade R 35.Below is the one I have. Last time I checked Sephora revamped it with new packaging.
