Teatime: Current Everyday Makeup Routine

October 22, 2017

One of my favorite things to do during my free time is to watch makeup tutorials on YouTube. Those videos make me feel very relaxed. I started wearing makeup every day when I was in college because my schedule was more flexible, I had more time in the morning to do it. And you know you can't go back once you started something. The good thing is, I enjoy doing my makeup. I think it's a fun process. It took me 10 to 15 minutes every morning to do my makeup before work. I also like to use this time to catch up with some Podcasts. I don't use any special technique or fancy product, and everything I used is under $15, except for the eyeshadow, which I got as a gift.




As someone who has problematic skin (pores, blemishes, oily), I'm always looking for something that is full coverage and long-lasting. My current primer is e.l.f. This is my first time using it, and honestly, I don't think it reduces the redness on my face, but I really like the consistency of it. The primer I use before this is the Fix And Perfect Pro by Rimmel, and I also really like it. For foundation, I ran out of COVERGIRL (Aquasmooth Compact Foundation), so I'm using the one from L'Oréal. They both have very good and build-able coverage to me, and I really like the finish looks. I use the two concealers for my under eye and chin and nose area. After applying the setting powder, my base is done.



*Primer: e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer Tone Adjusting Green

*Foundation: L'Oréal Infallible Pro-Matte 24HR Foundation

*Concealers: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circles / Maybelline Fit Me Concealer

*Setting powder: Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder


Brows & Eyes:

Another thing that's important to me other than foundation is eyebrows. I have light and very uneven brows. I like using brow palette more than pencil because it looks more natural to me. I don't wear eyeliner to work, but I would apply some eyeshadow, so my eyes don't look too plain. Then put on some mascara, I can move on to the last part.


*Brow palette: BH Cosmetics Flawless Brow Trio

*Eyeshadow: Lancome Color Design EYE Shadow (Trendy/Vue/Positive/Lezard)

*Mascara: Maybelline The Classic Volum' Express



Contour was the very thing that I learned how to do, and I'm still not very good at it. To me, contouring is not as important as anything else (probably because I haven't been doing it for too long), so it's something that I could skip if I don't have enough time. I bronze my face with the darker colors to make it look more defined, then add the blush to put on some color on my cheeks. I also put a little highlighter on the high point of my cheeks, but not too much, because my face usually shines throughout the day.


*Contour/Blush/Highlight: BH Cosmetics Forever Nude Sculpt and Glow


Last, I spray some Makeup Mist & Set by e.l.f. and I'm done! I don't do any touch-up during the day, so I get very oily by the end of work. But the good thing is the next thing I do at that point is to remove all the makeup and oil off, so I can relax with a fresh face for the rest of the night!
