My 10 Product Full Face Makeup Routine

I love a simple makeup routine, especially when I'm in a rush to get to work on time in the morning. I've been able to narrow down my makeup routine to just 10 products, that give me the natural look I like. All 10 products added together cost just under $75, if your a makeup lover you'll know the high cost associated with having a made up face. Being able to have a makeup routine thats simple and affordable is always a win for me. 
1. LA Girl Pro Concealer - The pro concealer does a great job of covering my imperfections, I have dark under-eyes and hyper pigmentation. The concealer is very thick and creamy so I can easily cover any trouble spots.

2. Milani Conceal + Perfect Powder - I've been loving the Milani conceal and perfect powder for awhile now, I even added it in my March & April favorites. I love the light weight formula of this powder, its super buildable and gives me the medium coverage with a added matte finish that I like.

3. Cover Girl Queen Collection Bronzer - I never knew what the power of a great bronzer could do to my makeup routine. After I apply the Milani powder, my face is left flat with little dimension to it. The Cover Girl bronzer is my trick to adding the life back to my face. I like to apply the bronzer to the perimeter of my face and also use it for a little bit of light contouring.

4. Maybelline Fit Me Blush - I never appreciated the virtues of a good blush until I started using the Maybelline Fit Me blush in the color wine. The blush adds lots of warmth and color to my face that would otherwise be missing. I like to apply the blush to the apple of my cheeks for that perfect "I'm blushing" look.

5. L'Oreal Voluminous Lash Primer - I cannot stress enough the greatness that a lash primer can do for your lash game, especially if your like me and don't have much going on in terms of eyelash length and volume. I always apply the primer first with any mascara that I'm using, as a result I get the added volume that my lashes so desperately need.

6. L'Oreal Voluminous False Fiber Lashes Mascara - On top of the primer I use the L'Oreal false fiber mascara. This mascara contains fibers that help give you the false lash look. The fibers add volume and length to my lashes, which is exactly the look I like.

7. Milani Easy Brow Eyebrow Pencil - If I'm having a no makeup day I always try to have at least my brows done. I try to get my eyebrows threaded once a month, with my brows already shaped, I just apply the easy brow to give my brows more volume and enhance their shape.

8. Rimmel London Wonder Wing - I've been loving the winged eye liner look, this liner from Rimmel makes achieving this look so much easier. The wonder wing has a flexible felt tip with a wing-shaped stamp that allows for creating the perfect wing. I can't create a wing without it.

9. Maybelline Color Tattoo Eye Chrome - I like having my eye shadow application process be as simple as possible. The Maybelline color tattoo is a metallic shade that gives your lid a liquid chrome shine. The doe-foot applicator makes it easy to glide the product over my eye and give me that done-up eye look I like with out all the usual fuss.

10. NYX Lip Lingerie Lipstick - I love a easy to apply matte lip. The NYX lip lingerie is a liquid lipstick with a matte finish. The shade "After Hours" is the perfect my lips but better shade.

The Revlon Colorstay Brow Crayon claims to give your fuller and softly defined brows with one sweep of the crayon. The formula is waterproof and has a wearability of 24 hours.

Stila Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set $25.00 | These trio of liquid glitter eyeshadow's claim to be long-wearing lustrous eyeshadows that you apply directly to your eye lids with a applicator wand.

I'm alway looking for better ways to make my morning makeup routine easier, this tinted moisturizer seems like it would do the trick of giving me the coverage I need.

4. Shayla X Colourpop Perception Shadow Palette $23.00 | Another one of my favorite beauty you-tubers is Shayla, she is a beautiful person inside and out and I'm excited for her newest collab. The perception palette is a mix of matte and metallic shades that can create a work friendly day time look and transform to a bold night time look. I like palettes that make it easy to create eye looks, especially for those like me who struggle creating eye looks. I'm loving the shades Played Out, Culture, Diva, and TF.

1. Too Faced Diamond Light Highlighter $34.00 | I'm obsessed with the packaging of this highlighter by Too Faced, it's one of the main reasons that I added it to this wishlist. The Diamond Light highlighter is a swirl of pink, blue and gold shades. This multi use highlighter says its best used with a dense brush that you use to sweep the products onto the tops of your cheek bones or anywhere else you want to highlight.

2. Urban Decay All Nighter Waterproof Setting Powder $34.00 | This new setting powder from Urban Decay claims to be a totally waterproof formula that blurs pores, imperfections and blocks shine. I'm super intrigued by the waterproof aspect of this product, Urban Decay says that if you cry, sweat, or get wet your makeup will stay waterproof and flawless for up to 11 hours. Your supposed to buff the powder over your foundation to lock in the coverage then finish up with your blush or highlighter of choice.
