Primer: Tatcha Liquid Silk Canvas primer and Marc Jacobs Under(Cover) Perfecting Coconut primer Face: Covergirl Full Spectrum Matte Ambition All Day Foundation. I think I have the lightest shade in this collection, definitely made for more melanin rich peeps. Measurable Difference Concealer Collection. We received this in a Boxycharm box three years ago and I’ve kept this since then, still plastic wrapped. I love how well this product performs!

The NYX glitter primer made a big difference in how the shimmer shade applied and how long it stayed on!
It’s been a little over 11 weeks since I’ve been working from home and I’ve been focusing on keeping a routine as much as I have been on being productive.
As easy as it may be to remain in my pj’s, skip: showers, hair brushing, makeup, I’ve been focusing on not doing these things.
I mean, my weekly outfits have become one set of bottoms for sleep, one set for awake time and different tops every day but at least there’s some variety!
The other thing I’ve been focusing on is my skincare routine and applying makeup everday. I’m able to focus more on my skincare because my skin spends more time without makeup on than it did before and I’m not in a rush to get going, but applying makeup is the real pick me up to my day.
I’m loving getting to expirement with more colors, colors I wouldn’t usually wear to the office, and trying different formulas I wouldn’t in the past.
So far I’ve learned I don’t hate shimmery blushes and bronzers as much as I thought I did and maybe dewy foundation actually works better than matte.
Some days I only apply lisptick, or eyeshadow and mascara. Even doing the simplest of makeup helps lift my spirits.
I believe that sticking to these routines have really helped keep me grounding in these uncertain times.
