Hi everyone! Because I haven’t done a beauty-related post in awhile, I figured I’d put together this post of my current favorite beauty products that I use in my makeup routine.
I don’t typically apply much makeup unless there’s a special event or occasion coming up. So the items on this list are the makeup products that I use regularly. (I’d say daily but we all know I don’t wear makeup on a daily basis. 😉)
At the end of this post I’ve included before and after pictures. I usually never post pictures of myself on here so I’m super nervous! If you have any tips, feel free to share in the comments.

Before applying any makeup, I always make sure to apply my Mario Badescu glycolic acid toner to make sure my skin is bright and smooth. I love this toner because it always makes my skin feel so much brighter and is a nice, gentle exfoliator.
I know, I know I’m almost out! Will definitely need to be ordering more of this toner ASAP!
I tend to like minimal coverage unless there’s a special occasion, so I typically use this Origins moisturizer as my foundation. It’s super hydrating for my skin and I know I’m safe going outdoors because it’s SPF 15.
This is one of my usual makeup products that might have to be replaced soon. I’m not even sure if they still sell this Smashbox BB cream in stores anymore.
Because this BB cream is a bit heavier of a coverage, I like to use this as a concealer under my eyes and on any bad blemishes.
This is another product that will have to be replaced when I run out. I’m almost certain they don’t sell this Too Faced powder in stores! I like to apply this really lightly just to get rid of any shine left from the tinted moisturizer and BB cream.
I think since I use it so lightly, that’s why it has lasted me so long! This powder also gives a nice, light bronze and smells amazing. Unfortunately, I could only find it in ‘tan’ on Amazon. The one I use is ‘golden light’.
I love this Kat Von D Setting Powder! It works so good at setting my makeup and giving an overall matte finish to my skin.
I like this setting powder especially for setting the BB cream under my eyes so that it doesn’t wear off or show lines throughout the day. I usually leave this on as I apply my contour, then blend it out afterwards.
Anastasia products are some of my favorites! This Anastasia contour set has been my go-to for years. I really like how some colors are warmer than others for the summer months.
This Anastasia pallet has served me well since I got it! You can tell because of how beat up the outside is. It has pretty much everything you need for contouring. All of the powders work great as eyeshadows too!
Now for before and after pictures following my usual makeup routine! These pictures really show how well these products work, especially that BB cream with covering up my dark circles!
Well that’s all for my makeup routine! It’s not much, but like I said, I don’t typically wear much makeup unless there is a really special occasion.
