With fall beauty launches starting to drop, I’ve shook up my everyday makeup routine for a super dewy, radiant, no-makeup look.
No Kayla makeup routine starts without first using the Stila One Step Correct. I’ve used my fair share of primers trying to find one that rivals Stila’s, but to no avail. This truly is the best primer I’ve ever used. It’s hydrating like a moisturizer while having no silicone. Man do I hate that weird satin finish of silicone primers. This reduces redness while sinking quickly into the skin so I can move on to other steps in my routine.
I’ve been testing out the Urban Decay Naked Skin One & Done Hybrid Complexion Perfecter* (phew!) lately and find it to be quite like the It Cosmetics CC Cream. It’s quite a sheer coverage base, but it’s perfect for an everyday makeup look where I don’t need too much coverage. Its finish is incredibly dewy and leaves a nice highlight to the skin making it look like I’ve spent my summer days at the beach rather than hunched over a laptop.
I never seem to stick with a concealer for long these days, but I’ve really been enjoying the new It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealing Pot* from their Fall 2017 Collection
Next is brows and I used up my It Cosmetics Universal Brow Power Pencil so I’ve moved on to the Brow Power Powder* and am peeved I haven’t tried powders sooner. Although I do love a good brow pencil, powders are so easy to just quickly fill in my brows without fuss or worrying about brush strokes. Plus the color is a fantastic match and doesn’t budge all day. Huge fan.
Most days I can’t be bothered with eye shadow so I head straight to mascara. Urban Decay’s Perversion* is my current favorite for bold, thick lashes that hold a curl all day long. My lashes are seriously sad so anything that can keep them upright and voluminous throughout the day is a winner in my book.
For blush I’ve been using the Sephora’s birthday gift from Tarte in “Paaarty”. Luckily the have this in a full size because I’ve been going through this deluxe sample like crazy. It’s the perfect summer flush to the skin that leaves me looking warm and gorgeous. I’ve also been dabbling in a little bit of bronzer (I know who am I) as summer starts to wind down. Got to give the illusion of a sun tan somehow right? The Urban Decay Beached Bronzer* is just the right light shade while still adding color and glow to my face.
Lipstick is another product I just slap on without much thought of color, but I have been finding myself reaching for Bite’s “Pepper”* more than most shades in my collection. It’s a bit more on the purple side of mauve than my usual “my lips but better” shades, but I’m loving it to add a bit of depth and tone to my otherwise bright and poppy look.
Regardless of whether I’m going out all day or staying in to work, I love finishing off my makeup look with the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. It’s just so dang refreshing on the skin that I just can’t help but spray a few spritzes on to the skin. I’m still working through my backup collection of old packaging and can’t wait to get one of the new, sleek black bottles.
All in all this look takes about five to ten minutes to slap on my face in the mornings and makes me feel ready to take on whatever the day has to offer. What’s your usual makeup routine look like?
