Everyday Makeup


Although I have to be at work every morning by 8 a.m., I still manage to get some makeup on my face each morning. I've nearly perfected the 10 minute hair and makeup routine and wanted to share what products I tend to reach for on a given morning.

The Stila One Step Correct ($36) gives my dry morning skin a healthy kick of moisture while prepping my skin for the NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer ($42). I have the shades "Finland" and "St. Moritz". I take a glob of "Finland" and a smaller amount of "St. Moritz" and blend them together on the back of my hand to get the perfect shade to match whatever level of tan I'm currently rocking. I cover my always apparent dark circles with my trusty NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($29). If I'm feeling particularly pale I'll brush a little of N.Y.C's Smooth Skin Bronzing Face Powder in "Sunny" ($2.79) for a bit more color. My blush of choice as of late is the Kiko Rock Attraction Blush in "06 Visionary Sienna" (€6). A light brushing of this on the cheeks adds an amazing wash of color that looks incredibly flattering with a slight tan.

For eyes I tend to keep things a bit simple and use my Stila in the Light Palette ($39). It's so easy to create a really flattering neutral eye while still having definition to it. I like to tight line with the Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in "Damsel" ($20) which came with the palette. If I have a little bit more time during a particular morning I'll do a little something with the Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Liner ($20). More often than not this step ends up being skipped though. I curl my lashes and apply a generous amount of L'Oréal's Voluminous Volume Building Mascara ($7.99). Then I apply a my-lips-but-better lipstick like Urban Decay's Revolution Lipstick in "Rush" ($22) before flying out the door.

What's your everyday makeup routine?

xoxo Kayla

  4. I see A LOT of my everyday makeup staples here. *Great minds think alike* Stila In the Light, Stila Smudge stick and stay all-day liner are musts! I really need to get on the Stila One-Step because I'm so on board with everything they do. The NARS concealer is also a must!
