Summer Make-Up Routine

Let me start of this post by saying I know absolutely nothing about makeup. However, I try to make myself look presentable about half of the time {the other half I am in my glasses which is essentially a free pass to not wear makeup}. So below I have included my "summer beauty routine" {excuse all of the not so great photos of my face}. In the comments tell me what y'all do...maybe y'all will have pale skin, red hair, and blue eyes too and we can compare notes-xoxo darling, Hayden. 
 The "Before..."
 STEP 1: Apply Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion. I should tell you now, I basically use exclusively Clinique products because I love them.
 STEP 2: Apply Clinique Superdefense Daily Defense Moisturizer {SPF 20}. Both this moisturizer and my foundation have SPF because, again, I am super pale.
 STEP 3: Apply Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin Fortifying Hydrator. This is my number two favorite beauty product because it feels amazing {you'll see no. 1 down the line}.
 STEP 4: Apply Moisture Surge CC Cream {in very light}. Furthering my pale feelings and SPF 25.
STEP 5: Apply Color Surge Eye Shadow in Rose Wine & Blushing Blush. Now this is where I am strange, I use the blush as my base eyeshadow because 1) I have really red cheeks so blush isn't necessary & 2) it looks alright as eyeshadow! 
 STEP 6: Apply Clinique High Impact Extreme Volume Mascara. This is my all time favorite makeup product...you see why and the amount of compliments I have gotten on my lashes is insane! Also, I do not do my bottom lashes because they are far too long and look really strange when I do them.
 STEP 7: Apply Revlon ColorStay Eyeliner in Black to waterline. AHHH first non-Clinique product! While doing this post I realized how amazing eyeliner was and how essential it is to my looks...it's fascinating. Also, I only put it on my waterline.
 STEP 8: Apply Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Kissable Pink {Shine}. FINAL STEP!!! I walked into Ulta and picked a shade I thought was pretty, that was literally my logic.
Creepy shot of my eye, so you can see the details! 
Finished product!
