Emma’s Everyday (Natural) Makeup

Over time I’ve updated a number of products I use and love and so in March 2021 I decided to update this post to reflect what I am currently loving and using.

I wear makeup most days, usually skipping one or two days a week (usually when I’m pressed for time, ha) and over the years I’ve swapped out a lot of the makeup I use for more natural brands. I may still have a few items that don’t fall under the umbrella of “natural” makeup, but for the most part my everyday makeup routine is pretty clean. But even if you couldn’t care less about natural products everything I use also feels (at least to me, and with my skin type) high performing and high quality.

Above is everything in my makeup bag, although I don’t use all of this every day. I feel like most people (who wear and like makeup) have at least a few shades or lipstick or blush that you cycle through depending what you are wearing or what you’re in the mood for that day.

Foundations & Concealers-

I have two liquid foundations I love. I tend to use Bare Minerals BarePro in Aspen 04 in the colder months and ILIA Skin Tint in Tulum in the warmer months. I love that both contain a good amount of SPF (although I still wear sunscreen under my makeup if I am going anywhere at all), but the ILIA Skin Tint is a lighter consistency so it just feels better during the warmer season to me.

I love W3ll People Bio Correct in Ivory for a very full coverage concealer, like if I am covering up a blemish or red spot. And I also like this ILIA concealer stick—I tend to use it more like a highlighter or for under my eyes mainly.

Also pictured is ILIA Serum Concealer in Arrowroot, which I use at the very end to kind of set my makeup, or I’ll brush some on if I want to avoid looking shiny.

Eye Makeup-

I have eyelash extensions that I get refilled once a month. For this reason, I don’t really wear eyeliner or mascara. I love my eyelash extensions (I go to Abby at Foxie Lash in Springfield, Missouri) and to me they are worth the time and expense to keep them up. It’s my #1 treat to myself. 🙂

For eyeshadow, I have the Lawless The Little One Palette. I use ILIA Essential Brow in Medium Brown for my brows. And I also wanted to mention this HAN eyeshadow in Celebrate as I love it for not only my inner eyes, but also I use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones or the bridge of my nose.

Blush & Bronzer-

I only own one bronzer, I love it. It’s ILIA Bronzing Powder in Drawn In.

I have a few different blushes that I use and love that are slightly different shades/looks. I use Rejuva Minerals Baked Blush in Cranfusion for a basic, everyday pressed powder option. I like the ILIA Multi-Stick in At Last for cheeks and lips. I also like Bloomeffects Tulip Tint for both cheeks and lips. When I use either of those last two options it’s a little more of a dewy look.

Lipsticks and Glosses-

I love a matte lip, so most of the lip products I own fall into that category. Love BITE Lip Crayons (the two colors I have are Glacé and Nonino). I also love these Shade M Matte Liquid Lipsticks—the colors I have are Lila and Secrets. I own one very pink, bold lipstick from 100% Pure in Marrakesh, which is for special moments. Ha. And, I love HAN Lipgloss on its own for a softer look, or layered over one of my other lip products.

Thanks for letting me share! xo. Emma
