My everyday makeup

I've made many promises in the past about filming a tutorial but never got around to it until now. Although the quality is not the greatest, I hope you guys appreciate the effort! 

Just a few notes:
I had to cut this into two parts because Youtube (or iMovie) wouldn't let me exceed 10 minutes per video. I forgot to mention that my "secret" to clear skin is water! I drink a lot of water.  Also, I kept saying "foundation", I meant to say powder. And lastly, please excuse the rambling. Thanks for watching!

Eyeliner - Almay
Powder - MAC mineralize skinfinish natural in medium/dark
Brow powder - Anastasia in Ebony
Mascara - Maybelline Great Lash & Revlon Double Twist
Concealer - Revlon Colorstay
Blush - Coastal Scents
Bronzer - Cover Girl 
Sunblock - Neutrogena
Highlighter - Smashbox
