#tbt: Makeup Routine

Today’s throwback is actually a bit of an update on an old post. Since we’ve been travelling a lot lately, I’ve been throwing my makeup into a bag quite regularly for overnight, road trips, and plane rides. Even though I like to experiment with fun new makeup (thanks, Birchbox!), I stick to my tried-and-true basics on a daily basis. Over 2 years ago – April 2013! – I wrote about my favorite products.

How about a little Now and Then action?

2013:

The Amateur Librarian // Routines

1. Moisturizer – Cerave AM

2. Foundation – Clinique Acne Solutions liquid foundation in Fresh Alabaster

3. Cream Powder – Too Faced Flawless Foundation with SPF in Warm Vanilla

4. Blush – Too Faced bronzer in Snow Bunny

5. Eyeshadow – Clinique quad (I use the Lucky Penny and Dark Plum shades the most often)

6. Eye liner – Maybelline Define-a-Line eye liner in Black

7. Mascara – Maybelline Great Lash or L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes (not pictured, but a frequent pick if it’s on sale)

8. Lipstick – Clinque Almost Lipstick in Black Honey or Maybelline Color Sensation lipstick in Pink in the Afternoon

And 2015:

The Amateur Librarian // Tried and True Makeup Routine

Face:
1. Cerave AM moisturizer
2. Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Eraser in Brightener
3. CoverGirl Aquasmooth cream foundation in Ivory
4. Jouer tint in Petal (lips+cheeks cream tint, but I only use it as blush)
Eyes:
5. Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow in Birthday Suit and No Pressure
6. Maybelline Define-a-Line Eyeliner in Soft Black
7. Covergirl Lashblast Volume mascara in Black Brown
Lips:
8. Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey (and Burt’s Bees chapstick)
And to wash it all off (not pictured):
Burt’s Bees makeup wipes
Cerave PM moisturizer
These days, my routine is mostly the same with a few new favorites. The biggest change is now that I’m living down South again, I like creamy makeup – my favorite foundation, blush, and eyeshadows are all cream instead of liquid or powder. I still don’t have a favorite mascara, I just pick up whatever is on sale. (If anyone has a tried-and-true favorite, I’d love to know!)

Happy Throwback Thursday!
