My Everyday Makeup Routine // Awkward Girl Does Her Makeup

After getting a few requests over the years, I finally decided to film a video on my everyday makeup routine. This makeup routine is what I’ve been doing almost every day for 5+ years now. Once I discovered how to do a wing…it was all over for me.

Almost everything in the video is from the drugstore except the Jeffree Star highlighter, which was worth every penny. I literally had no idea how much L’Oreal makeup until I filmed this video. I’m not sponsored, but some of the links below are affiliate links on Amazon.

I’ll list everything below…

My Everyday Makeup Routine

Apple Concealer

First, I start by using a generous portion of under eye concealer, and I blend it in by pushing (not wiping) it in with a travel sized Eco Tools foundation brush. I use it under my eyes, on the sides of my nose where I have redness, on my chin, and on a small spot on my forehead. I also use a bit on my nose for highlighting.

Set the Concealer

Next, I use a Beauty Blender to press loose power on top of anywhere I put the concealer. I don’t worry about applying too much concealer because its easily brushed off.

This heals the concealer not to crease, and it also makes your skin look really soft and smooth.

Apply Blush

Then I move on to blush.

I use Milani’s baked blush in the color “Luminoso” which is divine. It has a bit of shimmer which can highlight imperfections in textured skin, but I’m not mad about it. I apply it with an Eco Tools travel size blush brush I purchased at Walgreens. I bought travel sized brushes because they easily fit in my small makeup bag that I bring with me all the time—and it turns out that the brushes have amazing quality!

Eye Makeup

I then do my eye makeup, which includes 3 steps.

  1. Use a black pencil for eyeline
  2. Use a wet pen meant for winged eyeliner to draw a wing (I only use the wet eyeliner for the wings)
  3. Use regular mascara on the top, and waterproof on the bottom. I have terrible allergies and big eye bags, so I use the waterproof on the bottom. But I hate getting waterproof mascara off, so I use regular mascara on the top.


Lastly, I do my lips. Most days I keep my lips super simple—I dab a bit of color in the middle, and throw a ton of gloss over top. I keep it simple since I wear retty heavy eyeliner every day, but if I go heavier with my lip color its always a liquid-to-dry matte liquid lipstick.

My lip application got cut off in the video 🙁 Just imagine that it was wonderful.
