Morning make-up routine

Depending on the day and time usually depends on how much make up I wear. Without fail I always at least wear mascara, concealer, and some lip color. I am going to share with y'all my make-up routine. Here is a picture of me without any make-up:

Before applying my make-up I wash my face with Revision skincare Brightening Face wash.
I then apply my D.E.J eye cream. I usually apply this in the morning and before I go to bed.
Lastly my moisturizer called Multi-protection broad spectrum with SPF 50.
I mainly use Revision Skincare if you haven't noticed that.

When applying my make-up, I start with a primer called Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. They have it in two sizes: the one linked and a smaller travel version (which is pictured) for $16. I like that I can spray it to set my make-up in the morning and carry it with me to freshen my make-up throughout the day. If you do not like the spray, they have the original which is the Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer. The large is a little more than the spray but it has a $16 travel size as well.

Next, I put on my foundation which is Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation. For me, it does not feel as heavy on my skin as other foundations I have tried. I put it everywhere but around my eyes.

Next, I use Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I pretty much use this everyday since I have undereye circle due to my allergies. It works great on covering those and blemishes. I go through this once every 3 to 4 months which isn't that bad for using it everyday.

After that I put on my mascara. Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara.  I received some of this as a gift for Christmas last year and have been using every since. If lengthening your lashes and making them look fuller is what you want out of a mascara, then this is the one I would suggest trying. At $18, I liked it better than some of the more expensive ones that I tried in the past.

Lastly, I put my eyeliner one. The liner I use is from the Sephora collection which is their Classic Line 24HR Felt Eyeliner. The tip is not to thin or too think. Personally, I like liner that tips are like those Uni-ball pen tips which, this remind me of those.

Also, I just got my free birthday gift from Sephora which ended up being two Nars lip pencils. I actually have been using them as lipstick instead of lip liner due to the way it looks after I put it on.
And here is the end result is this:
Shiny Kiss Flavored Gloss
Just use a tiny bit of the gloss though because if you use more than that it will be super shiny and sticky.
I know that some of these products are little pricey but Skincare is one of the areas that I spend a good amount of money. I tend to keep most of these for 3-6 months or until I run out of the product (except for the face wash which is the supersized one that I have had for about 6 months). I consider it a good investment to buy some really great make-up and skincare products that you like.
I would love to hear about some of the products that you use in you daily routines.
Everyone have a great rest of your Tuesday.
