You guys know I’m a total beauty junkie which means I’m always changing up my “everyday makeup” routine. Today I wanted to share what I’m using and loving right now. We’ll call this my “summer makeup routine”. Nordstrom is always my go-to when shopping for new beauty products and restocking my favorites that I can’t live without.
Did you know you can get samples of almost anything at Nordstrom? Every time I go in store I stop by and grab a few samples to try out new products. Trust me, you’ll get addicted too! This is how I discovered some of my ride-or-die beauty products. This is also super helpful when trying out new foundations. I highly recommend going to Nordstrom and getting some samples so you can try it out before you commit to the full bottle.
Below I’ve listed out everything I’m currently using along with the colors and how I use them. If you have any questions at all don’t hesitate to ask 🙂
F A C E
MOISTURIZER-Charlotte Tilbury Charlottes Magic Cream Trea & Transform Moisturizer
I use this after cleansing my skin before applying anything else. This moisturizer is hydrating & anti-aging. It leaves my skin looking glowy & fresh.
FACE OIL-Urban Decay Drop Shot Mix-In Facial Oil
I think this has made a huge difference in the way my foundation looks on my skin. I apply 1-2 drops into my foundation. It’s super lightweight and leaves my skin looking soft, glowy, & fresh even when wearing full coverage foundation.
FOUNDATION-Diorskin Forever Undercover 24 Hour Foundation “# 25” & Estée Lauder Double wear
I’ve used these two foundations for the last year and just recently started mixing them together. Seriously, life changing! Ha! I love both and on their own they are great, but I loveee the finish it gives mixing them together. I apply a small amount of each on the back of my hand and mix them together. I apply it with a flat top kubuki brush.
CONCEALER-Tarte Shape Tape Concealer “Light-Medium”
Hands-down the best concealer I’ve ever used. It’s full coverage, doesn’t crease and instantly brightens my face. I apply this under my eyes and on any areas I want to highlight.
POWDER-Urban Decay The Velvetizer Translucent Mix-In Powder “Translucent”
I set my under eyes and lightly dust over my entire face. My skin has been kinda dry lately so I only apply a little to set my foundation.
BRONZER-NARS Bronzing Powder “Laguna”
I use this to contour my cheek bones & nose. I also apply it on my forehead and temples to warm up my face.
BLUSH-NARS Orgasm Blush “Orgasm”
Seriously, the best blush ever. It looks beautiful on every skin tone and has the perfect glowy sun-kissed finish.
HIGHLIGHTER-Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector “Champagne Pop
I’m all about that “glow”! I use this on the highpoints of my face. Cheek bones, tip of my nose, under my eyebrows, and on my cupids bow.
SETTING SPRAY-Urban Decay All Nighter
This setting spray makes my makeup last all day and makes everything melt into my skin making it look more natural and glowy. I spray it on after I finish all of my makeup.

EYE SHADOW-Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette
I keep my eye shadow pretty simple. I apply “Sauced” all over my lid, then go in with “Cayenne” in the crease. I also smudge a little “Cayenne” under my lower lashers.
MASCARA-Urban Decay Troublemaker Mascara
I’ve used this for a the last 2 months and love the formula. This makes my natural lashes look full & long. I curl my lashes then apply a light coat. After it dries, I curl them again and add more just on the tips—this makes them look much longer.
*I stopped getting lash extensions and now just wear these strip lashes when I wear more makeup.
BROWS-Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Definer
This is deficiently my favorite brown pencil–it’s super easy to use. I have thin brows so I over draw them a little while still trying to keep the natural shape of mine. I will try to do a YouTube video on this soon since I’ve had so many requests.
LIPS-NARS Orgasm Afterglow Lip Balm
I wear this pretty much every day. It’s super hydrating and has a subtle hint of pink and the perfect amount of shine.
