My Easy Daily Makeup


My favorite part of my morning routine is doing my makeup. I always watch Youtube videos and give myself a little me-time before starting my day. Now I’m not an expert when it comes to makeup, but I’ve figured out a makeup look that I love for every day and it only takes between 10-20 minutes to do. Also, almost all of the products are cruelty-free too, which I’m very happy about. So I thought I would share my easy daily makeup look, filled with products that I love!



Burt’s Bees Daily Lotion SPF 15

This was a more recent addition to my makeup routine since it is so hard to find a cruelty free moisturizer that has SPF in it. I really love using this right after I’ve cleaned my face and used my toner. It does have a bit of a different smell that takes some getting used to, but I love how it leaves my skin feeling moisturized and not greasy or sticky.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer in Fair

I used to use the Glossier perfecting skin tint which I still love, but now I only use this concealer on my face. This concealer gives good medium coverage and I love how it doesn’t hide everything. I use it under my eyes, around my nose, and a bit on my chin and forehead.

Soap & Glory One Heck of a Blot Powder

This is the only product that isn’t cruelty-free, but I have been finishing it so I still use it daily. It helps mattify and set my makeup and overall is a pretty good powder.


Nudestix Eyebrow Pencil in Ash Brown

I can confidently say that as long as Nudestix makes this eyebrow pencil, I will be using it every day for the rest of my life. Before finding this product it had been so hard to find an eyebrow pencil that wasn’t warm-toned. This ash brown shade is a perfect match for my brows, and the pencil makes filling them in a dream. It does come with a gel but I never use it.

BareMinerals The Regal Wardrobe Palette & Lorac Pro Palette

There are days where I will branch out and wear a different eye look, but most days there are two shades I’ll choose between wearing. I love this bareMinerals palette, and the shade I’ve been using almost every day recently and in this post is treasure hunt. If I’m not wearing that shade then I’ll be wearing the shade Pewter from my Lorac Pro Palette.

W3ll People Expressionist Mascara in Black

This was another fairly recent addition to my makeup, but I am in love with this mascara. In the past year, I’ve only been using more natural mascaras since I want something going that close my eye to be as natural as it can be. I love how natural yet defined this makes my eyelashes look, and it’s really easy to apply without any clumping.


NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

The lip color I’m wearing is the one thing that does change a lot in my makeup look. Although I own a bit too many lip products, the ones I’m 9 times out of 10 wearing are the NYX soft matte lip creams. I love how easy they are to apply, and they last really well throughout the day. The three shades I wear the most are (in order from left to right in swatch photo) Monte Carlo, Cannes, and Budapest. I’m wearing Budapest in all these photos.


Burt’s Bees Micellar Makeup Wipes

Even though this isn’t a part of my daily makeup routine, I still thought I would include the makeup wipes I’ve been loving to remove my makeup. The Burt’s Bees Micellar wipes are my go-to on most days and I love how easily they remove my makeup without irritating my skin.

Yes To Coconut Makeup Wipes

These are the wipes I use to remove my makeup when my skin needs a bit more moisture, although they do tend to burn my skin a bit after I use them.

And that is my easy daily makeup! I hope you enjoyed getting a look at the makeup I wear in almost all of my photos, and I’d love to know if you use any of these products too!
