Everyday Makeup & My New Favorite Primer
My main goal when shopping and looking for makeup is to make sure it’s a good fit for an everyday look because that’s what I wear 99% of the time. I rarely wear makeup that isn’t glowy and natural. Now, occasionally I do wear extra glam makeup but nothing too dramatic or intense. Not that I don’t love those smokey eyes and huge wings, I just don’t personally wear that type of makeup. So I have about 500 different ways to wear a natural everyday look and you probably hear me say those words all the time! The two things I love most are skincare products and natural but glowy makeup. So I decided to start sort of a series, it might be every week or it might just be every other week, but on natural makeup looks because the possibilities are endless!
Today I’m sharing a simple and easy look with my new found Wander beauty loves plus my new favorite face primer. Have you heard of Wander? I hadn’t until a few months ago and I could tell right away it was going to be a favorite of mine.
I always go for an illuminating primer for extra glowy skin. This one by 100% is amazing for so many reasons. It’s vegan, natural, silicone free, and smoothes my skin to a silky smooth canvas for makeup.
I’m using the pressed foundation in shade medium. I love it because it’s smooth and has skin moisturizers so it doesn’ look chalky or dry. It’s a great foundation for all skin types. You can also use it with a big fluffy brush for a setting powder in combo with your normal foundation.
I haven’t been this excited about a product in a long time. One end is a creamy matte stick perfect for covering blemishes or highlighting when you want a matte look and the other end is a liquid illuminating concealer perfect for under eyes and down the middle of your face to highlight. I’ve been obsessed with this, the formula on both ends is a total win.
Again, another duo ended product by Wander, a highlight and blush stick. Both formulas are super creamy and long wearing. I use the blush end by sweeping a stippling brush on it and applying with that, I just like my blush very subtle. I have the coral shade so the blush is a good natural shade as well. The highlight end I just rub all over to apply and then blend either with my finger or a beauty blender.
For this look, I’m using my Elizabeth Mott bronzer on just the hollows of my cheeks and the top of my five head (I mean forehead :P) I make sure I blend the bronzer up and don’t get it too close to the center of my face, I like to keep it on the outer edges.
I love an easy to use shadow stick, there’s nothing more simple. You just sweep the stick all over your lid and blend it with your finger or a small shadow brush. I love the color of this one I got in my Play by Sephora box *If you don’t get the Play! box you need to, it’s the best subscription box for makeup! You can learn more about it here.
I have been super in love with the False Lashes Mascara (volumizing) by Essence. For the price is has an amazing brush and formula. It dries well too, it’s not too dry and it doesn’t dry too fast that you can’t get a second coat on.
I’ve actually been using the Too Faced plumping gloss I got in my Sephora Play! box. It’s in the shade milkshake, a pretty glossy nude. My lips do get really plump after using this if you were wondering if it actually plumps.
Thanks for reading today! I might film a video to show how easy this look is. Let me know in the comments if you want a video to go along with the post!
Have a fabulous weekend lovely!
I’ve been hearing more about 100% pure lately and am super curious about the brand! I was kinda shocked when I saw the prices at first since their packaging is so low key lol. The primer does sound really lovely though! I have yet to try out Wander but I’ve been wanting to after seeing some reviews from fellow bloggers. Their highlight/ blush stick looks so cool!

100% is an AWESOME brand I def recommend getting something to try! Wander is also so so good! That stick is perfect for travel, I can’t wait to use it this summer too, where I tend to wear more cream blushes.
I really enjoy the plumping gloss by Too Faced as well! Great post girly!
I want to get more shades! What ones do you have?
