Recently I’ve begun to perfect my super quick, everyday makeup routine. I now have to wake up fairly early everyday to get to work. I don’t have a lot of time to apply makeup since I like spending every moment possible laying in bed for as long as I can!
There’s 6 categories of products that I keep in my makeup bag for everyday and can’t seem to go a day without.

For my everyday makeup look I usually skip foundation and just wear concealer. I tend to over apply the concealer though so some days I think that I should just apply a tinted moisturizer or something. But that just seems like an unnecessary extra step when I’m trying to rush and get my makeup on.
I usually apply my concealer on my undereyes, a bit on my cheeks and around my nose to cover redness, on my chin because I have a bunch of acne/scarring and a bit on my forehead to just round things out.
Lately my all time favourite concealers have been the Colourpop concealers. They dry down really well and I never feel like I need to set them or use powder which never happens for me when it comes to concealer.
I use two different shades and usually just mix the evenly together to get the best shade since one is fairly pink and the other is really yellow.
I don’t know how I ever went a day without mascara – I used to think it was unnecessary in high school and in the first few years of university.
I have super straight, droopy eyelashes so I usually have to curl them to give them an extra boost. I really feel like a bit of mascara helps me looks awake and fresh faced.
My favourite mascara lately has been the Eyeko Lash Alert Mascara. It gives the perfect amount of natural looking length and volume. If I’m doing minimal makeup I don’t want my lashes to look extra. This really is a great everyday mascara.
I swear without my brows filled in I look so bald. It completely changes my face when I have them filled in. I’ve also been wearing my glasses so often and having bolder and fuller brows is a must to balance my bolder glasses!
I can’t live without the Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil. It makes doing my brows so simple because it has a triangle tip to it. This really fills in my Brows and lets me get a decent point to the end of my brow. I also really love the spoolie and I think that it does a great job at distributing product!
As someone who’s extremely pale I need a little bit of bronzer to give my face some colour and shape. Lately I’ve been reaching for the Physician’s Formula butter bronzer because it’s a great subtle colour when I’m not wearing a lot of makeup. It also blends really well on the skin when I don’t have any foundation on. It just gives a nice sunkissed look to the skin that I can’t go a day without – especially in the summertime.
I can’t survive without a little bit of highlight added to my cheekbones. I find it just gives me that extra step to look more alive and awake. Highlighter has become a product that I don’t think I can really go a day without!
Lately I’ve been switching it up between cream and powder products. But if I’m wearing minimal makeup I love how this pink toned Becca highlighter in looks on my skin. It’s just such a natural yet fun sheen on the skin!
I don’t know if I can go without lipstick when I’m wearing makeup. It’s my number 1 all time favourite part of my makeup routine. It’s the reason why my blog is called nudelipdiaries – I love a good nude lip colour! I usually am always switching up the product and colour that I wear on my lips because I have so many that I always want to wear. This is the best part of my makeup routine and 100% necessary on a regular basis.

Overall I’ve really been loving keeping everything minimal on a regular basis. I also think it’s really allowed my skin to breath and chill lately because my skin looks a lot clearer lately than it has in a while! What are your must have products for an everyday makeup look?
