10 Minute Makeup Routine,+ The exact products in my Capsule Makeup Collection
I used to use MAC foundation, but I don’t have a MAC counter near me and I didn’t feel like traveling an hour to shade match (I change colors a lot in the summer) So I switched to a Drugstore foundation and never looked back. I love this foundation. It gives great coverage, stays on all day, and never broke out my skin. I’ve been using it for years and love it!
I have wanted to try this forever. I know I am going to purchase it sometime this uear, in time for my wedding for sure. Sarah Brock used this foundation on Gal Gadot for Wonder Woman, so of course, I’m sold.
I love this little guy. It has a soft fuzzy applicator and it comes in a twist tube that is super convenient in my opinion. It doesn’t sit in the creases of my eyes or anything. It blends well and is very light, but with good coverage
Contour and Highlight: Nyx Contour and highlight stick is the perfect cream contour from the drugstore.
Wish List Highlight: Tarte Diamond highlighter. This highlighter is infused with real crushed diamond powder and light reflecting pearls. It looks amazing and I really want to try it.

Mascara: I’ve been using Maybelline Falsies Mascarafor ever. It is great for length and volume
Wish List Mascara: Too Faced Better than Sex Mascara. I’ve never tried this Mascara but I have heard great things about It. I would love to try it one day to see if it is better than the Maybelline
Eye Liner: Revlon Liquid eyeliner. It is easy to apply and is very bold. I’ve been using it for years and years.
Eyeshadow: Urban Decay Naked Palette. I don’t have a drugstore shadow palette that I use. I think anyone building a makeup collection should invest in a good neutral makeup palette. They last forever and you can create so many looks with them. I’ve been using the Naked palette for years. A must have for anyone for sure.
Lip Gloss: I am absolutely in LOVE with the Laura Gellar Color Luster Hi-Def Lip Gloss in Diamond Dust. This is the PERFECT lip gloss, I promise. It doesn’t tingle or dry out your lips, it isn’t too sticky or thick, but it is so sparkly and pearlescent. I came across it at Ulta one day and had to have it.
What’s in my capsule makeup collection
I have had a pretty small makeup collection for years now, and I didn’t realize that minimalism was an actual thing. So, I realized that I totally have a capsule makeup collection and I want to share it with you!
It pretty much consists of all of the drugstore products you see in the graphic above, but there are a couple more items that I have added!
I have purchased some high end makeup for my Wedding, so my capsule makeup collection has been updated for the first time in a long time! Read all about my Wedding here!
I know I have wanted to try the Armani foundation, but I actually got my hands on the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation recently.
I went to ulta looking for products to use on myself for my wedding day. I was looking for a matte foundation that would stay put all day since my wedding is going to be outdoors. I got a sample of this stuff, took it home and immediately fell in LOVE. you guys this stuff is so amazing! Great coverage, feels good on the face, and stayed put for a long time. I haven’t purchased the full size yet because my skin color changes so much in the summer that I want to wait a little bit closer to the wedding, but this will be my go-to foundation for now. I was unable to try the Armani foundation because there aren’t any stores near me that carry it and I really need to sample a cosmetic product before I spend that much money on it. The Estee Lauder foundation retails for $42. In my opinion it is worth every penny.
I gave in and picked up the Tarte Shape Tape Concealer! I’m so excited to use it on my wedding day!
I swear by Urban Decay’s Naked Palettes! I have NAKED 1, 2, and 3. I have had these palettes for years and I use them all of the time. I have never felt the need to purchase any other eyeshadow palettes because I usually just wear natural colors or a smokey eye. But having all 3 of them really came in handy when I started testing out my wedding makeup look because I was able to achieve the eye shadow look using these palettes! I can’t wait until I can share my wedding makeup routine with you. I am doing it all myself and it looks so amazing! Will update this post in 6 weeks once the wedding is over so check back here in a bit!
Originally I was using a highlighter from Victoria’s Secret. I bought it years ago for like $20 and it’s just gorgeous. Very pigmented, stays put. One day, I dripped it and it all broke. Now it is just this crumbled up powder that I can’t store with the rest of my makeup because it will spill and get everything dirty. So I decided to grab the Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow kit for the wedding! For $42 I got 4 gorgeous colors. I’m sure I will have this palette for years to come.
Finally got the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner and it’s just as amazing as I thought it would be!
I always keep one bold red lipstick on me, because red lips are stunning. So I have a gorgeous one by Smashbox. I don’t wear it very often, but when I do, I’m obsessed.
I’m so happy with my updated makeup collection. As a mom, I have to admit that I have been neglecting myself in the makeup department for a long time. I spend so much time with the kids at home that I haven’t felt the need to spend money on high end products and for years I have been using drugstore products. The products I use are amazing, don’t get me wrong, but I feel so much better having new stuff. And honestly, it’s for my wedding. I totally deserve it. I will be able to create so many different makeup looks with this and it didn’t break the bank.

Great Product recommendations! A solid 10 minute face routine is important!
Very informative and well put article..!!
Completely agree on the Maybelline Anti Age Rewind concealer, I've been using it for years and I honestly think it's so much better than a lot of more expensive concealers out there!

I agree, makeup is kinda a hassle sometimes. Haha what I don't like tho is that sometimes it's so freaking expensive
