10 Tiny Tweaks That Will Make a Huge Difference in Your Beauty Routine

My Makeup Routine: CocoChic

Over in the Beauty Product Junkies group on TeamSugar, the members have been posting step-by-step breakdowns of their daily makeup routines, complete with before and after photos. What brave souls!

I absolutely love this idea, so I've asked several users if I can post their routines here. I also invite you to join the group and post your own routines. Who knows? You might just end up featured on BellaSugar too!

Today's makeup routine comes from CocoChic, who shared her tips for a simple but polished daytime look. (Her nighttime look, she admits, would be much more complicated.) To see her step-by-step routine,


Step #1: I start off with Cetaphil Facial Cleanser and Cetaphil Facial Moisturizer. My skin is really dry, and this is only cleanser that doesn't make my skin look like it's going to fall off my face after I wash with it.


Step #2:
Ok, next, I use L'Oreal True Match Concealer (the lightest warm shade) and NYC Concealer in Light under my eyes and all of the splotchy little spots, respectively. Then I use BE SPF 15 Light 2 all over. I use Benefit's Georgia all over for a peachy glow and I use Cover Girl Soft Mink blush. Ah! Getting better!

Step #3: Next, I go to my eyes. I put the second lightest color in the Revlon Not Just Nudes palette over my whole lid and the lightest color in the inner corners a bit. I curl those lashes and use Sephora Volume Mascara in Black on top only. Then I line the bottom with the dark brown end of Rimmel Eye Twist.

Step #4: Almost done! I use a different lip gloss all of the time, so I just chose one from the pile. In this I have on Milani Glossy Tubes in Bermuda Bronze.

Here's CocoChic's before and after shot. I love how she looks finished by not overly made up by the end. Nice work!

Really pretty...you have gorgeous eyes, and I was just thinking if you defined your brows a little bit (like with pencil or powder? MAC makes a good one that I use) it would make them stand out even more...btw, your skin looks great, I think I'm gonna have to try BE, everyone raves about it! :)
