Everyday Makeup

What started off as a "favorite products" post turned into my full-fledged every-day makeup tutorial. I guess that just shows how much I love everything I use! I am a total creature of habit, so if I like something, I stick to it. Some of these products I have been using since my freshman year of high school! Also, I have fairly normal skin (a little dry in the winter, a little oily in the summer), but I use these products year-round.
(If a product is not mentioned, I just haven't found one that I 100% love/would purchase again.)
Face:
Moisturize: I use this tinted moisturizer in 'Light Tint' to even out my skin tone. I would recommend using another moisturizer underneath, as it is not very moisturizing
Foundation: either this or this depending on if I want light (BareMinerals) or full (Laura Mercier) coverage. I love the Laura Mercier kind because no matter how long I have it on, I am not oily whatsoever! 
Concealer: place a dot under each eye then blend in a triangle shape
Highlight: When I remember, I use this on my forehead, nose, and above my cheeks
Set: I use this powder to set everything and plan on trying this Laura Mercier version next
Bronze/Blush: Last, I pretend I know how to contour and use this bronzer in 'The High Dive' with this blush in 'Pink Coral'. I love Bobbi Brown blushes because they are very pigmented but still natural looking

Eyes:
Brow: I use the powder from this kit (only $3!!) with this brush starting in the middle and working my way to both ends
Prep: I prime with this paint pot in 'Painterly' and use the powder from the brow kit on my lids
Liner: I have been using this in 'Blacktrack' with this brush since high school, it is totally fool proof! If I am feeling lazy, I use this in black.
Shadow: I lightly apply this shadow in 'Brun' over my liner to dull the harsh line and use this in 'Naked Lunch' on my inner corners and below my brow (sometimes on cheek bones too!)
Lashes: I curl my lashes with my Chanel curler (limited edition, but I'm convinced they're all the same) and have been using this mascara in 'Very Black' forever! I really want to splurge on this

Lips:
Moisturize: I always start with my Burts Bees 
Line: I live and die by lip liner, no joke. This is my holy grail product because I have such thin lips. Even if I have no makeup on, I still wear this liner in 'Pink Mauve' because it is a near match to my natural lip color.
Stick: I switch between this in 'Hibiscus' and this in 'Get Ready'
Gloss: If I want something more sheer, I love this gloss in 'Bare Peach' and usually wear this in 'Orchid Passion' over lipstick!
