Yesterday we had the luxury of having the day off from the (pretty mild) snow storm we had. But still, snow- ew. Andrew and I had the laziest of bones all day so I also took a break from blogging which may not have been the greatest idea because I’m sooo behind on catching up- but I’m hoping to read as many as I can today!
Today, I’m sharing my very basic Every Day Make-Up Routine.
In a nutshell, I wake up at approx 7:27AM get ready super fast for work and try to be out the door by 7:50AM which ends up being like 8:00AM…
Although my make up is the longest part of my routine it really only ends up taking a good 10 minutes max to apply it all.
1. Josie Maran Surreal Skin Argan
I just got this and I use it a primer (I swear like two weeks ago, had no idea what primer was even used for- I still don’t) but this I’ll rub onto my face especially around my eyes as a base before applying concealer and my makeup has been looking flawless as ever.
2. Maybelline FITME Concealer
I’ve been using this for like the past two years now if not longer. I’d say it’s very comparable to the NARS concealer stick but way cheaper. It covers up any dark circles or pesky unwanted blemishes perfectly.
3. SKONE Brow Wand & Maybelline Brow Define
I received the Skone Brow Wand in my IPSY kit a while back and it’s lasted me all this time. It’s the perfect shade, pencils in very nicely and then I use the Maybelline Brow Define smudger to blend it together
4. Almay Brown Eyeliner
My sister got me hooked on this liner! I’ve tried several different ones; drug store & nice name brand ones but this one still stands as my favorite. I always use Espresso Brown for eyes; its long lasting and never do I have to go in for touch ups.
5. Cover Girl Lash Blast
I love these. So I start with LastBlast Fusion; volume and length and let that dry. Then I’ll curl my lashes and do a coat of the LastBlast Volume. And it gives my lashes life!
And when I want to splurge, I love Two Face BTS…of course.
6. NYX Liquid Matte Liner
I mentioned in a previous post that Rossy got me hooked on this liner for my wings. It goes on so smoothly, dries quickly, and does not smudge one bit.
And if you know me I can’t leave off on 6…. SO
7. Lanolin Lip Balm
I’ve been on the prowl for some type of HELPFUL lip balm to cure these dry lips. I know a lot of you mentioned sugar scrubs which probably works are well as it sounds but I wanted something I could apply and leave on. So after some thorough research I came to find this gem and WOW. I won’t use any other lip balm/chapstick ever again. And the smell of strawberry is so delightful.
AND THEN once I get to work I will apply my new beloved
And that’s it. My every day make up is, like I said, VERY BASIC. If it was up to me, I’d prefer no make up (as much as I love make-up) crazy oxymoron…
Okay now I want to go read blogs because the anticipation is killing me!!!
