My Makeup Routine (Summer Edition)

Hello my friends!

I hope you are all doing well.

I’ve been wanting to post my makeup routine for a long time, but I’ve never had the courage to do it. Simply because I don’t know a lot of things such as: ย the name of brushes, how to explain the steps… I am sure I am not the only one struggling with this. At the same time I don’t have to; I love make up, colors and I want it to be part of my blog. I didn’t include expensive/ luxury beauty products. I am using inexpensive but still good quality products. So here is my everyday makeup routine (Summer edition):

BB cream and powder:

I don’t use foundations on a daily basis. I prefer BB cream because it doesn’t feel heavy on the skin (which means comfortableย for the day) but still has some coverage. I’ve been using Garnier Pure-Active Anti Imperfectionย in light. And to apply it, I simple use my fingers. ๐Ÿ™‚


Then I set my BB cream with Glam Up paris Compact Powder using my favourite kabuki . (it’s pink and it has pearls hihi. Btwย I had to google how to write kabuki).


Countour and Highlighter:

Because the BB cream makes me look pale, I add a little bit of color to my face with the Catrice cosmetics Prime and Fine Professional Contouring Palette in 010 Ashyย Radiance. ย Then with a Round Blending face brush, mine is theย  Zesta Blending Brush, I try (not really ๐Ÿ˜‰ ) to contour my face.


And since this palette comes with a highlighter, I highlight my face everyday. It gives a very light shimmer to the face, which is appropriate for an everyday look. I apply it with either with my fingers (for more pigmentation), or simple with a Fan Brush.



The Blush step depends on my mood. I don’t put blush every single day because sometimes I like a bronzy look so I skip this step. However if I want to, I will use Color Me blush (light pink with a peachy touch) or Glam Up paris blush (this one is very pigmented). I prefer the first one though.



Next step is my eyes. I enjoy applying eyeshadow, mixing colors and blending.


My go to eyeshadow palettes are:

  • Glam’s Make Up Glam and Glow Intensity Eye Shadow in Gold Addict


  • Ushas Matte Eyeshadow 2.


Eye look:


Start with nยฐ1 by applying it all over my eyelid with a fluffy brush ( the wooden brush on the picture).

With a flat eyeshadow brush, I apply nยฐ2 which is a light brown (I would like to call it caramel brown) into my crease to give it some definition. I go back with the fluffy brush to blend it even more. Blend, blend and blend ย ๐Ÿ™‚

Finish by adding nยฐ3 which is beautiful silver color to give the Eye look a little glow and shimmer, using a sponge eyeshadow brush. I use this brush because it helps applying the shimmer easily by keeping the pigmentation of the color.

Eye Pencil:

I usually line my eyes with the Astra Italy Illuminating Line eye pencil in black. But lately I’ve been loving the Glam Up Diamond Eye Pencil. I love this one because it has some shimmer/sparkles in it which adds a nice glow to the eyes.



I add mascara. I love the Golden Rose Instant Full Volume Cat Walk. It’s easy to apply and adds volume and length to the lashes.



To finish off the look I add some lipstick. I love, for a daily basis, to put a “transparentlip gloss. But if I want some color, I will line my lips with the Kiss Beauty Super mat Lip pencilย and put the Kiss Beauty lipstick (13) all over my lips.


That’s it. I really hope you guys enjoy this post. Let me know what you think of this post.

Now it’s your turn: What is your favourite makeup step? What are you favourite eyeshadow colors?

  2. What a fun post! I love the simplicity of your makeup routine. I don’t wear much makeup, but most days, I at least put on concealer and mascara. If I’m feeling real daring, I’ll throw on a light brown eyeshadow. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I own the original Naked palette, but to be honest, I find myself reaching for the Wet’n’Wild eyeshadow trio in « Walking on Eggshells. »
