As you can see from my Instagram video above, my makeup routine is stupid simple. I like simple makeup that makes me look and feel good. Below are some of my favorite products for achieving that ‘no makeup’ makeup look!

For Contouring: NYX HD Photogenic Concealer in ‘Deep Rich” it’s only $5! Ebony is another good color for dark skin tones. | E.l.f. Contouring brush, I love this brush for blending my concealer and foundation. I also swear by their Kabuki brush for overall coverage.

For Coverage: The Elta MD Tinted Sunscreen  is a mineral based sunblock that’s water resistant. Perfect for summer time fun! Unsun is another tinted sunscreen I use. You can read more about this product here. Both are great at blending into darker skin tones, without making your skin ashy.| For foundation, I use Bare Minerals Golden Dark Foundation. I have been using this foundation for over 6 years! It’s great! At only $28.50, this foundation lasts for at least 5 months if not more. Another reason I love this foundation, is because, there’s built in SPF 15. So if you forget to wear sunscreen, you’ll have a little coverage in your foundation!

Tools I Swear By: Eye brow razors | I get my eyebrows waxed or threaded once every 2 – 3 months. In between sessions, I tidy them up with these razors. This is tremednously more affordable than bi-weekly waxing treatments! |The Brow Brush is great for blending in my eyebrow liner. I’m not a fan of overly done eyebrows. I prefer a more natural look. This tool helps blend my filler so that it looks natural and not overly sculpted.
