I am clearly not a beauty blogger, and I can only speak to what works for me. My makeup routine is pretty much the basics, no bells and whistles and contouring (I still haven't got this contouring thing out), foundation, bronzer or a highlighter if I'm feeling particularly adventurous, blush, a lengthening / thickening mascara and either a nude or bold lip depending on my mood. I love eye-shadow palettes, they give you plenty of options for day to evening looks, they're compact and convenient. I love cosmetics that have more than one use like a 2 N 1 that can be applied to the lips as well as the cheeks. My skin is prone to an occasional breakout and hyperpigmentation and I need foundation that can be easily layered to provide coverage when I need it and light coverage when I don't need as much, Bobbi Brown and BECCA Cosmetics both offer me the best of both worlds.
