My Everyday Makeup Routine (Drugstore Version)

My Everyday Makeup Routine

As I mentioned previously on my night skincare routine, I do wear makeup on everyday basis but I am not a professional when come to doing makeup. I just wear what is necessary to make my face look presentable as I am working in an office and most of the time I do need to meet lots of people. But you know, I enjoyed learning and applying makeup nowadays.

As I am still collecting the high end makeup product, right now I am using the drugstore brand on regular basis. I am too shy to actually share this because during all this picture were taken, my face look so puffy and my dark circle was at the worst time. I could not put this post on draft and drag it to be completed because ‘oh my face look horrible now’ and c’mon just make it work girl, ain’t nobody got perfect skin everyday right.

So, this is my everyday makeup routine

Before I start applying all my makeup product I will always use my skincare product first; lotion and moisturiser. I also will apply a layer of primer from Catrice Cosmetic to even out my skin. My order in applying all the makeup may not be the same every time. But I always started with doing my brows first because tell you what I took the longest time drawing my brows. I always conceal the hair below my brows and correcting any line using an angle brush with the concealer from Catrice.

Then I am taking the concealer to prep my eye lid because I have dark eyelid. I will set it with face powder before applying eyeshadow.

Simple eyeshadow and wing eyeliner

My current favourite eyeshadow this days are from Innisfree and Aritaum. First I will apply the dark brown eye shadow just above my crease and blend it nicely. Then taking the plum colour eye shadow, I create a horizontal ‘V’ on my outer part of my eyes. Last part is applying a glittering gold colour eyeshadow to the rest of my eyelids. Sometimes I will put some shadow to my bottom eyes if I got the time and if I remember to do so.

After that I am taking a black eyeliner from Aritaum to tightline my eyes and using Maybelline hypersharp eyeliner to line my eyes and creating a wing. For mascara I use Maybelline Lash Sensational and apply a few coats to my thin and short lashes. You barely can see any lashes even after I put on my lashes, that is why sometime I skipped doing mascara.

Then only after that I put on my foundation. I will normally use either a BB cream or BB cushion. My current favourite BB cushion right now is the Maybelline Super BB Cushion. It has a lightweight texture and give a medium coverage throughout the day. I just dab it with the given cushion all over my face. After that I am applying the Maybelline Age Rewind concealer under my eyes, and covering all my imperfection with the Catrice concealer. Next, taking the Innesfree No Sebum Mineral Powder, I will set and bake my under eyes. To give a matte finish to my face, I apply face powder to the rest of my face using a fluffy brush.

The product I used for the rest of my face

I look so damn pale with just like this. So I am adding more colours to my face with blusher from In2it and bronzer from Catrice. I did contour my face and nose so my face won’t look as flat as the wall. If I want to look more glamorous, I will add some highlighter (I will use the light shimmer color of my Naked Pallete) to the highest point of my face which is my nose and cheekbones.

I finish up my look by applying a liquid lipstick from Kat Von D though this is a high end product but I am so in love with this lipstick. This time I am using Double Dare. Few other lipsticks of my choice is the Maybelline Matte Lipstick in MAT 12, MAC lipstick in Mehr, Mamonde Creamy Tint lipstick in code no 16 or Aritaum Lip Cover Color Tint in code no 5.

This is the full makeup look

That is how I do my makeup routine. While I am taking all the photos I am just wondering how did all the makeup expert blogger did all the photo snapping look so easy. I was struggling to get the best angle and lighting all the time and I was not so sure whether I should smile or not while taking the photos. After all the struggle I made it at last. I hope you enjoy reading, so sorry for the bad photos and model, haha. Seriously I am not doing any makeup routine anymore.


So how is your everyday makeup routine?

  • Those beauty gurus usually have those ring light, I think it is called such, that give good lighting thus instantly a good photo. You got all the steps so for me, you’re a pro. Loving the look since it looks so natural.
