Whats Your Makeup Routine?

This morning I was having a great conversation about makeup. I never really talk makeup with coworkers. Not the sort of thing we talk about. That’s what happens with most of your friends are jewelers! Anyway I was telling my coworker about my makeup routine which takes about 5-10 minutes.

Here goes - I slather on a Laura Mercier moisturizing tint

Laura Mercier Illuminating Tint

Literally I put it on with my hands like a lotion. No fancy sponge or anything

Then I apply Nars shimmer orgasm blushNars Orgasm

Next is Smashbox shimmer eyeshadowSmashbox

A bit of eyeliner and Sephora mascara

Sephora Mascara

Lipstick is usually whatever I have in my purse. Kat Von D Lolita

Currently its Kat Von D Lolita

That’s it. This takes me about 10 minutes and I usually do it in the car while driving (I know dangerous!! I don’t recommend). I’ve been doing my makeup on a moving vehicles for about 20 years either on the NYC subway or in a car. Side note, for my wedding I did my makeup in the car of course.

My coworker was horrified I think at my application of moisturizer. She proceeded to recommend a few sponges to blend. She recommended primer and setting spray to make sure my makeup stays fresh all day. Sephora here I come!!

Side note - of course for me no look is complete without the right accessories: hoopsCuff - Whats Your Makeup Routine?

Person - Whats Your Makeup Routine?multiple rings


Pendant - Whats Your Makeup Routine?and my nameplate necklace.

What is your makeup routine? Im so curious to know what tint, moisturizer, press powder, concealer you use. What is your favorite brand? How long does it take you? Do you wish you had a makeup artist that can do your makeup everyday?


We want a peak into your makeup routine!
