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)

 

 

Makeup + Layers

Happy Monday! What a beautiful weekend it was. This weather was all about layering for me. You know your weekend goes by way to fast when you think it is Saturday,  Sunday morning…Whoops! Well today I am sharing with you my favorite trend (fringe crop jeans) from Tjmaxx and also what Makeup I am wearing.

I always loved a natural look and lately I have really been getting into makeup and watching tutorials. I will be sitting up in bed watching them late at night and Andrew will always tell me to go to bed! HA! I have had quit a bit of people asking me what products I use. To be honest I have been playing around with a few brands these past few months, this look does not include highlighter which I have recently been playing with a few ones I like that I will share soon 🙂

My skin is very sensitive so that is the main reason why I switch around to see what works best with my skin. Also with the seasons changing, of course you have to switch that up.

Below I have share what products I have used to accomplish this subtle look and light eye. I love a full coverage look but also when it looks natural. I by no means am a professional and am still learning. So for those of you who are newbies to the makeup bandwagon, follow along with me and we will learn together!
