My Everyday Makeup Routine

When it comes to getting ready in the morning (and most days those mornings begin at 4-5:30 AM) my makeup routine has to be pretty simple. Most of the time it’s a quick blend of BB cream on the face, concealing any blemishes, setting with a matte powder, filling in the eyebrows (a must for me!), a swipe of shimmery nude eyeshadow (so it doesn’t have to be perfectly–and painstakingly–blended) and a little bit of mascara +/- eyeliner.

These are my favorite products that do the job oh so well:

Tom Ford Brow Sculptor in Blonde | MAC Eyeshadows in Naked Lunch (all over) & Trax (crease) | Skin79 Super+ BB Cream | Maybelline Mega Plush Mascara | Avon Kohl Eye Liner in Black | Rimmel Stay Matte Powder | Nars Blush in Sin | Urban Decay 24/7 Concealer Pencil in DEA

    DYING for that tom ford brow pencil! A less expensive option is the Smashbox brow tech to go, which I think might be even better because of having a spoolie on the other end it has a clear brow gel. It’s still $25 so not exactly affordable, but since I just dropped $50 on a Tom Ford lipstick, I’m going to wait before splurging again!

    Nice and simple colors. Now if only I could find a similar routine but with all organic makeup I’d be so happy.

    My make-up routine is pretty similar! The brows are a must for me as well 🙂 Thanks for sharing! I enjoyed reading this!

    Trax is my absolute favorite mac shadow and since discovering mine in a shattered mess the other day, I’ve been hoping it wasn’t a discontinued shade!

    RESPECT!! I was always way too exhausted to care about make up in the morning before work .. though I managed to put on some BB cream. =)

    My routine is almost the same- and I’ve been looking for a matte powder for ages- I’ll certainly be checking that Rimmel pressed powder out!

    I’m def going to try the brow sculptor! I need to fill to and with a new puppy and my work schedule the faster the make-up routine the better! Thanks for the share.

    Kristina, have you tried a number of BB creams? I am so confused as to which one to try. Maybe a future post on your experience and everyone’s favorite. Thanks for the tips and advice.

    I still haven’t gotten on board with BB creams yet. Although I also have and adore the MAC Naked Lunch eye shadow. You always look so pretty and glowy. So must be on the right track with your routine!

    That BB cream looks soo pretty, the packaging is lovely and so bright! Loveee that blusher too, NARS really does have such a fabulous selection of blushers, the colours are always divine.

    I love reading & learning about everyone’s makeup routines : ) I don’t have one I stick too, it just depends on how much time I have!

    I like Missha BB cream. Have you checked it out? Skin79 works great for me too. Love Nars blushes too. Thank you!

  18. […] based off of all the reviews Kristina from Pretty Shiny Sparkly had on BB Creams and based off her everyday beauty routine. I’m so glad I tried it because I really love it! I just need a small pump and it gives […]
