Ahh! I FINALLY got around to filming a quick little makeup routine for you all! If you are new, I film my updated makeup routine every July & December – but I skipped the past December because I was pregnant and… tired! Anyway, I got questions about my foundation, mascara, lipstick, etc. almost daily so I like to have an updated routine on my page. My routine hasn’t changed too much over the past year – but I have found a few new products that are seriously SO good… ‘game changers’. 🙂 (I kept saying that in the video!)

I added a few disclaimers to the beginning of the video – but I wanted to explain a bit more in case you are new to my blog. So I used to have really oily skin & acne – but I did Accutane last year and got it all cleared up. My skin got dry from Accutane, but I still need long wear foundation to cover some of the scars and hyper pigmentation. Also, I have pretty bad melasma on my upper lip (melasma-stache!) & it is actually tough to cover. I only have to use a little bit of my foundation ‘mix’ on my face, but if my melasma is dark, I have to do a second layer over it. Last week in the Bahamas, my melasma got darker because of the sun so I had to add a little extra foundation there. This routine is not my daily routine – it is actually just what I do when I am getting dressed up & especially if I need it to last all day & in heat! It’s completely sweat proof so it’s ideal for any special event you may have this summer. [It’s been tested! Lol – last week in the Bahamas I  had to shoot a few campaigns and I started sweating and thought for sure my makeup was going to be gone when I got back to the room – but it was all there, perfectly in place!]
