Everyday Makeup Tutorial- Instagram Stories


EVERYDAY MAKEUP TUTORIAL-IG STORIES

Over on Instagram stories I shared a quick tutorial on how I do my makeup everyday. You can head here to see the tutorials just look for the highlight “Makeup Tutorial” and watch away! Below are the products I used.

Primer:
I use the Super Serum + CBD from Hora which is super moisturizing but helps leave a nice natural glow look. (Use Code: Mika at checkout for FREE SHIPPING) This is something I also use at night as as serum it helps with acne.

Foundation:
The foundation I use is a medium/ full coverage but I honestly do not feel as if it is “full coverage” it is light and the more you add to your face it will become full coverage. I throw this on practically everyday and it does not feel thick at all. (Color- Creme)

Concealer:
I LOVE Tarte’s tape shape and I use the shade “Light”. This has to be my go- to and my favorite concealer of all time. Some may say it a little heavy but I have naturally dark circles so I have found that this is what works best for me!

Setting Powder:
I apply the translucent powder under my eyes and in the problem areas that need to “bake” meaning to settle the makeup a little longer so it does not come off. The translucent powder also leaves a nice matte finish on the areas you highlight with it. I use this after I am finished to set my makeup.

Eyeshadow:
Lately this palette has been my go- to. I have hazel eyes and I really feel like it makes my eyes pop and I love all the blush tones.

Eyeliner: 
I have used this eyeliner I think since I was in 8th grade- NO LIE. It is from the drugstore and has a price that is hard to beat and is super easy to apply with the tip is has.

Eyebrows:
Recently I have been working on growing out my eyebrows and the product I have been using to fill them in has worked like a charm. I use the color (blonde) This is a drugstore product that has a good price on it as well.

Mascara: I have very sensitive eyes when it comes to mascara so this mascara has been a go-to that has really lasted all day without flaking.

Blush: I recently started exploring this brand and really have enjoyed the consistency and the quality. The price is worth it for sure!

Highlighter: This highlighter is my on the go buddy!

Lips: 
I love a good lip color and this Matte color and brand is a good one because it is priced well and long lasting for me! (Color- Lover)

 

 

2018 Summer Beauty Favorites from Beauty Brands

 

We all know the summers here in Kansas can be sultry so I have partnered up with Beauty Brands to talk about my favorite summer beauty products that help me beat the heat!

Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream This one is a game changer it is super lightweight and helps moisturize your hair while creating a soft look for natural styles. This is the perfect oil to brush through your hair to help flyaway’s- do not use a lot it can make your hair greasy if you apply too much!

Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray– With this heat I know I do not like to blow dry my hair all time so I use the Bumble and Bumble Surf spray to create a natural beauty look. You apply it to damp hair and let it air dry. I love keeping this in my bag to spray in my hair after getting it wet from the pool so all day I will keep the natural wave.

Luther clearly wanted to be in on the shoot as well.

 

Living Proof Restore Instant Protection- If you have never used a product to protect your hair from your heating tools I recommend this. It not only helps protect against the heat but as well against UV rays and humidity (Y’all the humidity here has been HORRIBLE so this will be your best friend!)

NYX Matte Makeup Spray– This matte spray provides a gorgeous shine-free matte finish that is very lightweight and ensures that your makeup stays put throughout the day/ night.  All you have to do is spray this over your face after you apply your makeup, it’s that easy!

Make Up Eraser– Do you ever struggle with taking off your makeup? I know I have. I ditched the makeup removers that burn my eyes and found my self the Make Up Eraser. I wish I would have recorded myself using this for the first time because my mind was blown. It removes EVERYTHING, waterproof mascara, eyeliner, foundation you name it! All you have to do is get it wet and wipe off your face to get a clean face, I of course then follow with my cleanser. To clean the Make Up Eraser  you simply throw it in the wash every week.

SuperGoop! Everyday Sunscreen- Ever since starting my blog I became more aware of my skin and making sure I am using good products especially ones that protect my face from the sun. I have been religious with sunscreen. This lightweight everyday sunscreen you can put on before applying your makeup. Plus is it is oil-free so it doesn’t make your face feel like it has anything on it! It’s a win, win! Protect your skin people!

Tart Lights Camera Splashes Waterproof 4-in-1 Black Mascara Last but not least, on the far right we have one of my favorite mascaras that stays on through rain, sweat and tears! It lengthens, curls and volumizes as well as conditions your eye lashes to give you stunning lashes. Perfect mascara for a pool day!
