Flashback Week- Daily Makeup Routine

     Since we are moving this week I decided to take a blogging week off. Have no fear though, I am going to share some of my favorite posts from the last year (some when I barely had 20 followers) so they might be new to you! If you really miss me you can check in with me on Twitter (imhayley) or Instagram (im_hayley). I shared my daily makeup routine and it is still the same today, so in case you ever wanted to know... here you go!

     When it comes to makeup, I am a girl that uses whatever works regardless of price. I always love reading about what other people use and what they feel works best so I decided to share my basic daily routine with everyone.

1. E.L.F Hypershine in Vixen- It only costs $1, it is not too sticky and has the right amount of color. I stock up each time I go to Target!

2. Mark Eyemarker in Java- I have read this is discontinued but I love it. It doesn't smear to the upper eye lid and the color stays bold throughout the day.

3. Smith's Rosebud Salve- I have these in my makeup kit, purse, car... everywhere!! It is my favorite and you can use it anytime, anywhere! Not to mention the tins seem to last forever and the minted flavor is to die for.

4. Nars Eyeshadow in Nightstar- This color has the lightest amount of sparkle, I use it all over my eye lid to get a even base color before putting my darker colors on top and in the crease.

5. N.Y.C. Color Wheel- I just dab my blush brush in, swirl, tap, apply and go!

6. Amazing Cosmetics Concealer in Light- My friend (who is a makeup artist) gave me this awhile ago and told me "a little goes a long way" and it does... and covers blemishes flawlessly. You will have this little tube for a long time.

7. Make Up Forever HD Foundation- I like using just a dab of this with a foundation brush all over my face. It doesn't get greasy or disappear as the day goes on which is a plus for anyone with oily skin.

8. MAC Eyeshadows- I use various shades of brown and gold, and all different combos everyday! You cant go wrong!

9. Fresh Cosmetics Mascara Duo- Small enough to travel with or throw in your purse, one of these really separates and defines, while the other really coats the color on. I usually just use the black one for everyday and then add the green tube for an extra punch!


  1. I love that you are doing a recap of posts from the year.
    I just stumbled across your blog last week so this is all new to me!
    I am always interested in other peoples makeup routines and which products they use. I am always asking friends about their favourite products when I'm out looking for new ways to change up my makeup routine.

  2. I LOVE THAT CONCEALER. However, I only use it for "special occasions" because it is so expensive and I'm a cheapskate hahahha. ;)

    I love this beauty post!


Thanks for taking time out to leave a comment! I love and read every single one! XO! -Hayley
