Current Daily Makeup – MOTD

I typically wear makeup about 5 or 6 days a week – workdays M-F and usually one weekend day.  Lately I’ve been using the same products when I do quick makeup in the morning.

After skincare:

Juice Beauty SPF 30 Oil Free Moisturizer – I love the consistency of this. It is moisturizing but not greasy or heavy, contains 20% non-nano zinc oxide as the physical sunscreen, smells slightly citrusy, and retails for $29 for 2 ozs – one of the more affordable non-toxic face sunscreens on the market.
Fitglow Vita-Active Foundation in VF1 – I use two pumps and using my finger, dot it all over my face.  I then use a face buffing brush to work it into my skin.  I use a damp beauty sponge afterwords to blur any brush lines
Fitglow Beauty Eye Bright/Kat Von D Lock-It ConcealerW3LL People Bio Correct Concealer – I am trying to use up my Fitglow Eye Bright and the Kat Von D Lock-It Concealer – both are OK.  I can’t personally use the Eye Bright by itself – I always have to layer another concealer on top of it.  The Kat Von D concealer is good but a bit drying and somewhat difficult to blend.  I have a sample of the W3LL People Bio Active Concealer and really like it but my dark circles peek out after 3 or 4 hours of wear.  Next, I might try the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer…
Tarte Smooth Operator Pressed Setting Powder – under eyes to set concealer, around sides of nose

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz  – I use Taupe, and it’s the only brow product I’ve been able to find that is a close match to my eyebrows without having red tones.  The tip is precise enough to fill in my brows where I need it the most.  I like this better than the ABH Brow Definer because it gives more control of exactly where I need the product to be.

Everyday Minerals All Over Shimmer – for days when I want a subtle glow, I use a light dusting over my entire face
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer – this is perfect for fair skin, and is more of a neutral toned bronzer that isn’t too orange and isn’t gray, either.

Jane Iredale PurePressed Blush in Cotton Candy – a pretty neutral rose shade with incredibly subtle shimmer
Anastasia Beverly Hills Renaissance Eye Palette  I can do neutral or smoky and anything in between with this palette.  For a very simple everyday eye look, I use Tempura all over, and Buon Fresco blended up to my crease, with Cypress Umber on my lash line.  There is some fall out, but the shades are gorgeous and blend very easily

Modern Minerals Moonstone Highlighter – So beautiful, so creamy and easy to apply
W3LL People Expressionist Mascara – an old favorite
Kosas Rosewater Lipstick – a beautiful everyday light-medium rose color with subtle mauve undertones, fantastic formula and wear time

What are some of your no-fail, go-to everyday makeup products?
