COVID has me nostalgic for my college days when getting ready was fun and loud! I miss people and most of all my girlfriends! It used to be so much fun getting ready together with a bunch of other girls around. Martin is an early riser and ... I'm NOT. So, I'm all alone when I do my makeup each morning. But, now I get to share my everyday makeup routine with you guys + that makes it a little bit better!!
So, before we get to the video tutorial - a FEW things:
I'm NOT a professional. A few people have asked me to do a video tutorial and I just finally gave in.
I'm not your dermatologist or allergist. Knowing your skin type is something that affects every aspect of beauty - if certain brands I've listed below don't mesh with you.- just send me a private DM and I'd be happy to research a similar brand for you with your specifications.
I'm nervous and think I look stupid. Each time I re-watch the video I notice something different that's wrong or awkward, but I'm trying to just get over it.
This isn't my best work. I need to figure out a better setup with a bigger mirror to work with! haha I'll probably end up re-filming.
I've also included a ton of information about what products to use + when below the video. I hope you enjoy - let me know!
For things like your moisturizer, SPF, serums, etc. the rule is to go from lightest to heaviest, so you would typically go in the following order.
Moisturizer: HelloBody COCO DAY Daily Face Lotion

SPF: Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral SPF 30 Sunscreen Brush: This has a slight tint to it, can be thrown in your purse for on the go reapplication, and has 50 SPF. This powder sunscreen is a great option for those with acne-prone skin, says board-certified dermatologist Debra Jaliman, M.D., author of Skin Rules. “Since it’s powder, it doesn’t clog the pores and never breaks out the skin.” Plus, it’s easy to reapply and helps mattify midday shine on your face, adds Dr. Waldorf.
This has vitamin C + probiotics for your face to not only grip your makeup, but to help your skin! Gels can be great for faces that are more combination (like me) that get a little greasier throughout the day.
I don't necessarily follow this to a "T," but I do for the most part. I may sometimes skip to my eyes prior to my blush and bronzer (so I go straight from the concealer to powder). Just do what works for you, this is just a roadmap. You can always play with it to see where the road takes YOU! Makeup should be fun! Again, practice makes perfect!
Foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear, Shade Ivory Beige
Concealer: Tarte Shape Tape
Powder: Elf, Perfect Finish, HD Powder
Shades: Buon Fresco, Vermeer, Metal, and Pink Champagne
Eye Liner Drugstore
Setting Spray: Urban Decay All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray
I go over a quick primer on makeup application in the video as well as products listed; however, this chart is for quick reference if you want to take a quick screenshot of this and save it to your phone until you can remember the steps in your head. Don't worry - if you practice enough - you can be great at anything!
