My Everyday Make Up Essentials

On a normal day, I'm rushing around in the morning attempting to get ready for school or go run errands, which means I have my make up routine pretty much set in stone. I like to mix drugstore products with higher end products for my everyday make up routine.
Getting Ready with Me

I've mentioned before that my skin is dry and sensitive, so I have a hard time finding moisturizers that don't break me out or result in a nasty rash. Currently, I'm using the Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer by First Aid for my morning moisturizer. I'm also a fan of the Aveeno Positively Radiant,  but it is not as moisturizing as this one. I also like using the Origins Ginzing for under my eyes! It makes my eyes really pop and look awake.
On a normal day, I don't use foundation because it feels too heavy on my skin. For a spot concealer, I like to use Benefit's Erase Paste and for an under eye concealer I like to use Maybelline's Dream Lumi Concealer. This is one of the best drugstore concealers I have found, and it doesn't crease!
For a setting powder, I like to use Revlon's Nearly Naked. Nearly Naked doesn't feel heavy on your skin and it provides a little coverage on top of your foundation and concealer.
I am not a huge fan of bright color shadows, so I usually stick with neutrals when applying my eye makeup. I am a huge fan of the Naked palettes by Urban Decay, but my current favorite is the Lorac Unzipped palette. The shades are super pigmented and there is little fallout. My favorite drugstore eye shadow is the Covergirl trio in Shimmering Sands.
Benefit's They're Real! mascara is one of the best. However, I have tried most of the Maybelline mascaras, and I have enjoyed all of them I have tried.
Jouer's blush in bloom is a current favorite, as well as Dandelion by Benefit. For a highlighter I like to use High Beam by Benefit.
Korres has an amazing lip product, but another favorite for in the morning is Revlon lip butters, especially the more wine colored ones for winter!

What are your every day make up essentials?
