My Face Routine

My favorite thing about beauty blogs is checking out other people's face routines. Which products work for them? Do they prefer liquid or powder foundation? Do they use a primer?

Here, I've included a list of products and the order in which I use them.


Moisturizer: Philosophy Hope in a Jar. ($60.00/4 oz.)

This lotion is, by far, the BEST moisturizer I've ever used. It has completely evened out my skin tone. Oil or dry, this stuff does the trick!

Primer: MAC Prep + Prime Skin ($26.50/1 fl oz.)

This was the first face primer I ever used and I am still loving it. My make up goes on better and stays put all day. I can definitely tell a difference when I have forgotten to use it.

Concealer: TheBalm TimeBalm in Light ($18.00/0.25 oz.) or Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer in Medium Beige ($42.00/0.5 oz)

This is perfect for covering minor blemishes and under eye circles. It has medium coverage and is my go-to when I don't have time to put on foundation.

This concealer has medium-full coverage and goes on smoothly. A little goes a looooong way with this product. It is perfect for covering sore blemishes and redness.

Foundation: Bare Escentuals bareMinerals in Medium Beige ($25.00)

I've been using this for over three years and it is still my go-to powder. I've tried using other brands, but always revert to this. It gives my skin a soft, natural look without looking too cakey.

Bronzer/Contouring: NARS bronzer in Laguna ($33.00) or Physicians Formula Multi-Colored Pressed Powder in Light Bronzer ($13.49)

The only complaint I have with this is the price. It's a good product, but a cheaper alternative would do the trick just fine.

Once my NARS bronzer runs out, I'll be using this full time. It more pigmented than the NARS bronzer and is cheaper!

Blush: NARS Blush in Deep Throat ($27.00)

Love Love LOVE this blush. The peachy-pink color gives me skin a beautiful glow. I 100% recommend this product!

Highlighter: Benefit Cosmetics blush in Sugarbomb ($28.00) or Physicians Formula Virtual Powder Highlighter ($10.99)

I can't get over the smell of this product. It smells sugary sweet with a hint of fruit. So yummy. It give my skin a peachy glow without making my skin look oily.

This is the perfect highlight. It's a sheer pink highlighter that gives you just the right amount of shine.

Setting Make Up: MAKE UP FOR EVER Mist & Fix Spray ($27.00)

I swear by this product. I used this on my wedding day and my make up stayed on through the tears and sweat! It sets your make up with a soft, smooth finish.

What products do you swear by? Do we use the same ones? Let me know in the comments!
