Everyday Makeup: Updated

Hi guys! It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted my everyday makeup look (and it was I think the SECOND post on this blog!) and lately, when I’m not feeling overly ambitious, this is the makeup look I’ve been rocking. So essentially, mostly day-to-day at work. Daylight savings time has made me a bit uninspired, but I’ve been really liking this combination of products! It’s flattering, simple and goes with what seems like everything.

My Skincare Routine


Hi guys! I am by no means a skincare expert, but today I thought I would share with you the routine that seems to work for my face. I have fairly oily skin so I tend to go for daytime products that are made for my skin type. Since I’m oily, I don’t want to use products that may contribute to my oiliness under my makeup. I’m less fussy at night since I know I’m going to just sleep and then wash off the products in the morning. I’m going to break down my skincare products into three categories, face washes, makeup removers and moisturizers.

Everyday Makeup Routine

Hi guys! Today I’m going to show you guys my every day makeup routine. I went to a family BBQ last night and I wanted to do something basic on my eyes and do a bright lip. I generally change up my makeup on a daily basis, but this is a look I find myself frequently going back to. It’s so versatile and you can pair it with virtually any lipstick.

Let’s get into it!

This look really was perfect for the BBQ. It is simple but summery enough to compliment the warm sunny weather. It was a great time, it really is nice getting the whole family together!

I own all of the Naked palettes (Smoky Palette is on it’s way from Sephora’s website!) and I really do love them all, but I find the Naked 2 palette is the one that I reach for the most. I use the Naked 1 palette if I am going for a no-makeup look, the Naked 2 palette for my everyday basic routine and the Naked 3 palette when I want to do a soft and feminine pink look.
