I start my routine by moisturising my face with the Avène 'Cleanance Expert'. It's a really good moisturiser for those who's struggled with acne. (I used to struggle with it but I took a medicine that my dermatologist prescribed me. She also recommended me to use that moisturiser after the treatment.) 
The next step I take is priming my face. I first apply the Benefit
'Porefessional' primer on my T-zone and then I spray my face with the MAC 'Prep+ Prime Fix+'. I love to use this combination. For me those two products work the best to keep my make-up from creasing during the day.
Once that is done, I start applying my foundation with a Beautyblender. I use the 'Born This Way' foundation by TooFaced in the shade vanilla. I figured out that the easiest way to apply foundation is to dot it all over my face and then blend it in. I also blend it down my neck to prevent any harsh foundation lines. 
Next step is concealer. The concealer I use is the MAC 'Pro Longwear Concealer' in NC15 . I apply it under my eyes with my finger in a triangle shape to cover up my dark circles. To cover up any spots that I may have, I use the Urban Decay 'Naked Skin Concealer' in light neutral.
Then I like to prime my eyes with the Urban Decay 'Primer Potion' in original. I do this now because then it gets the time to set. While that is setting, I powder my face with the Jane Iredale 'PurePressed Base' in warm sienna (This is a refill product, so basically you have to purchase the powder holder one time and then you can buy refills). It's the perfect foundation powder to give myself some extra coverage. I put it everywhere, except under my eyes. There, I use the Make Up Forever 'HD High Definition Pressed Powder'.
Next up is contouring. I contour my face with the 'Hoola Matte Bronzer' by Benefit. It gives this very natural bronzy look, which I love. 

Then it's time for the eyes. First I apply eyeshadows. I do a different look every time. The colors I use depend on how I am feeling, what I am wearing or what look I am going for, for example a smokey eye or a natrual eye. I'm not going to go in detail about this but the pallets I love to use are 'Naked 1,2,3 and Smokey', TooFaced 'Chocolate Bon Bons', the Morphe '35T', the 'Naked Basics' pallet and the TooFaced 'Natrual Matte' palette. Those are a few of my favorites. After eyeshadow I apply eyeliner, I use the Maybelline 'Master Percise Liquid Eyeliner'. I tried a few different eyeliners before, but I keep going back to this one because I find it the easiest to apply. The felt tip really helps to make a smooth wing. 
Next step in my routine is spraying the Jane Iredale 'Pommisst Hydration Spray' all over my face. This helps to hydrate your skin underneath all the make-up. I like this a lot because it gives a refreshing feel to your face. This is definitely a step I cannot skip. 
After this, it's time for mascara. I always use two. First I apply a couple of coats of the Maybelline 'Lash Sensational' mascara in black on my top lashes and then a couple of coats of the TooFaced 'Better Than Sex' mascara. I also apply this one on my bottom lashes. I sometimes line my waterline with the Urban Decay '24/7 Waterline Eye Pencil' in the shade legend. 
The last thing, but surely not the least is highlight and lipstick. I use the MAC 'Soft&Gentle' highlighter. It gives a strong yet natural glow, which I absolutely adore. For lipstick, it depends on what I am wearing or which eye-look I did. I mostly wear MAC lipsticks and on the picture on the right, you can see some of my favs. (Lipsticks in the picture from left to right are: Creme D'Nude, HoneyLove, Snob and Diva)

That was my make-up routine. I don't wear make-up everyday but if I do, I do my make-up like this.

  1. I love the look and packaging of all the bigger, more luxury brands, but sometimes they can get pricey- and quick. My current favourites have been the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tined Hydrating Gel Cream (BB cream), and I have to admit- I'm obsessed. It's so light, and leaves my face looking even all day long. Again a little pricey for me at $30, but so so worth it!!


    1. Yes, I feel the same way about some more luxury products. Like some are really good but quit pricey but they're so worth the price! I'll try the BareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream, because I love trying new things and I also love the brand. Thank you for the tip. -Hanne
