I have a few rules about make up: 1) Doing my make up shall never take more than 5 minutes. 2) If I can use my fingers instead of a brush, I feel like I’m winning. 3) Natural, but better…. and a little dewy is always the goal. Ok so now that we’ve gotten those out of the way, here are the make up products I’m currently using….
…to achieve this look….

I shared a reel on Instagram so you can see exactly how I use these products, but here are all the links and a little bit about why I love them.
Lumify Eye Drops // It may seem weird to put eye drops as a first step on a make up routine, but these completely brighten your eyes (my eye doctor told me they are safer to use than other whitening drops – check with yours) and I swear if I just put these in, the rest is all optional.
Laura Mercier Pure Canvas Primer // I use this on special occasions (going out to dinner etc…) because it completely blurs any imperfections on the skin and helps your make up last longer.
Shape Tape // Tried and true under eye concealer. Dot under the eyes and blend. I use any excess around my nose.
Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer // I put a half dime size on my palm and apply all over my face and blend into my neck similar to how I would apply moisturizer. I blend it all in with my fingers – most people use a brush or sponge, but see rule #2 😉 I use the color Sand for reference.
Revlon Color Stay Powder // Yep, sometimes a drugstore product is the best one for the job. I use this on my t-zone to absorb excess oil.
Trish McEvoy Gorgeous Bronzing Cream // Obsessed is an understatement. I have a specific brush dedicated to cream blush and bronzer (it’s this one). I just apply it with a brush like I would with powder bronzer – on cheeks, forehead, touch on the nose, down the center of neck….its dewy and delicious.
Trish McEvoy Liquid Face Color // This universally flattering color adds the perfect pop of color on your cheek right where you need it. Dab a small dot on the apple of your cheeks and blend upwards.
Tarte Eye Shadow Palette // I use the color “love” all over my lids from lash to brow. I use the color “good vibes” + “shake it off” in the outer corners to add some depth.
Tartelette Tubing Masacra // Curl the lashes then apply!
Gimme Brow // Tame the brows and add a little drama with a few swipes in an upward motion from inside of brow to outside.
Trish McEvoy Lipstick // Pretty peachy nude (thats the color name)
Stay Spray // A few spritzes and you seal the deal for the day!
