Come Into My Bathroom, See My Make Up
I got an email from a lovely reader (Thank You Kate!) asking about my daily make up routine. Up until a few months ago my make up routine involved bright red lips, full eye make up and no blush. But I have recently changed it up a bit for a more natural look. So here we go…
Step 1. I always start with a good base. I live in a dry, dry climate so I hydrate my skin is compressed sweet almond oil and a mist toner. And at the end of the day I take off all my make up and calm my skin down with Burt’s Bees pre-moistened towelettes.
Step 2. I use to wear Aveda foundation, but I switched it up and tried the Garnier B.B. cream, which I kinda like. It does really even out my skin tone, but unfortunately it is like a million shades too dark. But it kinda makes me look tan. However, it leaves my skin kinda shiny so I add a little Maybelline Fit Me powder.
Step 3. This is my first ever blush, and I have to say I have been having a good experience with it. I put a little on the apples of my cheeks and brush back to hair line. This is Covergirl Peach Perfection.
Step 4. My eye routine is next to nothing now, I have just been letting my eyes speak for themselves. I curl my top lashes a little, rim the bottom of my eyes with white liner to make them perky and add one coat of mascara to the top and bottom lashes. My mascara is cover last blast fusion, and eye liner is N.Y.C.
Step 5. Lastly I add a little bit of colored lip gloss. I switch it up between Cover Girl Naturelux Coral and Anemone. It’s just a nice light color; it’s really good for day and you dont need to worry about it smudging or drying up your lips.
But if I am going out or feeling like my face needs a little more action I will wear a real lipstick, my two favs are Revlon’s Love That Pink or Fuchsia.
There you have it, my quick little make up routine.
What is your make up routine like? What is the most important step for you?
I hope you guys had a lovely hump day.
