Friday Favorites: A Few of my Favorite Makeup Products

I’ve never been someone who wears drastic makeup (I just feel so not myself with dark/heavy makeup), but I  do enjoy wearing makeup and feeling put together! Plus, let’s be honest… as a mom, the most glamorous part of my day often consists of a trip to Hobby Lobby, a grocery store run, or taking Lively to the park; that being said, my daily makeup routine is simple and typically consists of concealer, loose powder, highlighter, a tiny bit of eyeliner, mascara, and sometimes bronzer. I’m by no means a makeup expert, but I thought I’d compile a list of a few of my go-to makeup products:

  1. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Powder Illuminator (the Rose shade): I use this as a highlighter and feel like it adds a natural glow that isn’t too over-the-top. I’m a newbie to highlighting, but I feel like I’ve been missing out, because I love the extra coloring it adds.lumi2. COVERGIRL Cheekers Bronzer: I don’t use bronzer every day, but I love the “sun-kissed” look and structure this adds. I don’t use too much of it, and this one it subtle enough that when I do use it, it fits into my daily routine well.

loose powder4. COVERGIRL Perfect Point Plus Eyeliner: I usually just apply eyeliner on the outside corners of my eyelids, because I don’t like thick eyeliner on myself. Most of the time I either use the color Charcoal or Espresso. This eyeliner goes on super smoothly and is never rough (like some of the pencils I’ve tried).

eyeliner5. Clinique High Impact Mascara: This mascara is kind of expensive, but totally worth it! Mascara is my favorite part of my makeup routine, and I wear it every day. This mascara adds good color, doesn’t clump and adds lots of volume; I would for sure recommend it!

Like I said, I don’t claim to be a makeup expert, but I wanted to share my daily go-to’s for my simple makeup routine. I’d love to hear some of your favorite makeup products!
