How Erika Does…MAKE-UP!


Right behind “Day in the Life” posts are “Make-Up Routine” posts as some of my all-time favorites to read.  I’m not sure if it’s because I love trying new products and getting new ideas OR if it’s because I’m just plain nosy, but no matter the reason-I love reading these posts.  And I hope you do too!
Toward the end of the summer, I stopped into Nordstrom and popped in the Charlotte Tilbury counter.  I was looking for a few new items and I left there well versed in all things Charlotte.  As well as came home with new products I loved.

Then when Shay and I were in New York City, we hit up the Bobbi Brown counter and my make-up bag was re-vamped once again.  I’ve added other items I already had and now I have two different everyday make-up looks I want to share.

This look feels more “matte” to me.

This was my go-to line-up…

Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer-This gives you face a hint of shine along with prepares it for your foundation.

Magic Foundation-I was all out of the foundation I used most of the summer but was looking for a little more coverage during the fall months.  I use my Beauty Blender to apply.  My color is 3 Fair.

Magic Powder-This is super light and has the smallest hint of sheen.  I apply with this brush and have the “2” in this powder.

Nars Bronzer-Someone told me to use the “Laguna” bronzer and I’ve been using it ever since.  It gives just a little beachy glow.

Tarte Blush-This came in my Sephora Play Box recently and I’m a big fan.  My color is paaarty.  {By the way, if you love trying new products-I’d highly recommend the Sephora Play Box subscription.  For just $10 a month, you get five new products to try.}

Magic Away Concealer-The sweet lady at the Charlotte counter told me to only apply this to my inner eye area to get rid of the blue/gray.  This is super easy to apply with the built-in brush.  I have 3-Fair.

Not pictured-For my eyes, I used the Urban Decay palette that’s old and is no longer in production.  And a super old eye liner that’s down to the very end so I can’t even see the brand/color.  It was from Target and I really have no clue what brand or shade.

Lip Cheat-You know me-my first question was, “What color will make my teeth look the whitest?”.  Her instant response was “Pillow Talk”, but we’re all sold out.  I got this lip pencil instead and I’ve been coloring my lips and then add this gloss in “high society”.

A few extra products..

Unisex Healthy Glow-I only wear this when I’m headed to the gym {and not putting on make-up}.  It gives my face some color along with moisturizes.

Magic Night Cream-I bought this in a gift set during the Anniversary Sale and love how moisturizing this product is.

This look seems to have a more “dewy” finish.

Line-up #2…

Bobbi Brown Illuminating Moisture Balm-I wore this early in 2018, used my entire bottle, and it was so hard to find in stock I gave up on it!  I guess you should make a trip to NYC, if you’re in search of this product.  🙂  I found it online at Sephora right now…”golden glow” is the color.

Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick-I’ve been using this product for years and am a huge fan.  I use 3.5-warm beige and apply with this brush.

Bronzing Powder-My shade is “medium”.  Sold out at Nordstrom, but Sephora has it in stock.

Bobbi Brown Blush-In “tawny”.

Hydrating Eye Cream-I’ve used this product before and have always liked it, but Sophie at the Bobbi Brown counter in NYC showed me a different way to apply that really seems to work.  I put my foundation and powder on and then I apply this hydrating cream under my eyes with this brush.

Intensive Skin Serum Concealer-Then I add a little concealer {“cool sand”} under my eyes and blend with that brush.  I think what typically happens is I add concealer to already dry under eyes, but by using the hydrating cream right before the concealer it really helps my eyes look better.  

Shadow Stick-I used the “truffle” and “nude beach”.  I have a few other colors as well, but that’s what pictured above.

Eye Pencil-“Mahogany”. 

MAC Haute and Naughty-Shay raves so much about this mascara.  I had to try it out for myself.  🙂
Lip Pencil-In “nude”.

Luxe Lip Color-Mine is “Bahama Brown”, but is all sold out at the moment.

A lot of these products are 15% off right now!  Good thing my make-up bag is full or I’d be off to shop.  🙂  

And I feel like I should add…I’m by no means a make-up expert.  I’m just a girl standing in front of a make-up counter asking a LOT of questions.  hahahaha!  #teachmeyourways

What about YOU?  Do you have any products you’re loving right now?  What are your go-to make-up items?
