Here's a breakdown of all the products in Leila Alcasid's radiant peachy makeup routine:
Step 1: Lip Balm
The first step to Leila’s routine is applying lip balm, which helps to leave her pout hydrated, soft, and shiny. Prepping your lips first thing is a great way to make sure a smooth application for your lip color for the day.

Step 2: Face Mist
To hydrate her face, Leila uses the Youth To The People Adaptogen Soothe + Hydrate Activated Mist. The mist has properties such as antioxidant-rich adaptogens, hyaluronic acid, and peptides, so it's basically a serum in spray form.

Step 3: Vitamin C Serum
Vitamin C is always a great add-on if you aim for a bright and radiant complexion. Leila uses the 15% Vitamin C + Clean Caffeine Energy Serum also from Youth To The People to give her skin an instant glow and add moisture before her base products.

Step 4: Sunscreen + Primer
We all want our makeup to last and not move around in our skin, and the key to this is using primer. Leila uses a sunscreen and primer hybrid from Happy Skin under her makeup. It leaves a soft matte finish that increases makeup longevity and protects the skin from harmful UV rays at once!

Step 5: Illuminator
If you take a quick scroll through Leila’s Instagram, you'll automatically notice her skin's radiant glow. Her trick to this is using a liquid illuminator, to really capture that glow from within. She swears by the Shimmering Skin Perfector from Becca, applying it all over her face for a gorgeous sheen. Although this product has sadly been discontinued, a good and equally loved dupe is the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Filter, which gives the same creamy feel that applies seamlessly, melts into your skin, and leaves an elegant finish that doesn’t look glittery.
Step 6: Foundation
A new addition to Leila’s beauty routine (and her new favorite) is the Revitalizing Foundation from Chanel's N°1 range. She blends it out with her fingers for a smooth, streak-free finish!

Step 7: Concealer
Leila goes in with a local pick, the BLK Cosmetics Daydream Life-proof Airy Concealer, to quickly hide discoloration. She applies two different shades under her eyes and on her chin, and pats it in with a sponge for a seamless look.

Step 8: Powder
Leila goes over her T-zone and undereye area with a loose powder to set her face. This works to make her makeup last longer and provide a pore-blurring effect. In the video, she used the Tatcha The Silk Powder, which she loves for its lightweight feel and non-cakey finish.

Step 9: Eyes
Instead of using powder eyeshadow, Leila blends the Sunnies Face Fluffmatte in Milkshake on her eyelids with a fluffy brush. This helps achieve that monochromatic look if you use the same shade for your lips as well! To finish off her eyes, she swipes on a few coats of the Lashlift mascara for that natural, lifted look.
Step 10: Brows
If regular brow gel isn't working for you, try the Spiking Glue from Got2b, a hair gel that influencers love for getting that bushy effect. Leila swears by it, too, applying a bit onto her spoolie to brush up and lock her brow hairs in a feathered shape.

Step 11: Brontour
Here’s a tip for a quick scupt: use a darker concealer as your brontour (bronzer + contour)! Leila uses the True Skin Serum Concealer by Ilia Beauty, which has medium coverage and skincare benefits that lets it blend seamlessly into the skin.

Step 12: Blush
To achieve her go-to peachy flush, Leila goes in with the Sunnies Face Airblush in the shade Peached. You'll love this if you're looking for a sheer formula that'll deliver a youthful, soft-focus look.

Step 13: Highlighter
The Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Lighting Edit in Sculpture is one of Leila’s secret to a glowing complexion. The palette has everything you need to finish, brighten, contour and highlight your skin, which is great for traveling!

Step 14: Lips
Lastly, Leila applies two pink shades on her lips. She puts on the Sunnies Face in Girl Crush first, and then the 3CE Velvet Lip Tint in a similar hue to leave a natural wash of color with a fresh matte finish.
