When I was little, my mom had a make-up bag that said "Let's Make-up" on it...I guess it stuck in my head because at the time I thought it was pretty clever.
My make-up routine is pretty simple...on days I wear it, that is.
I wear make-up only 2-3 times a week. My kids don't care if I look like I just rolled out of bed all day long. In fact, when I do "get ready" they ask me where I am going or who is coming over.
My basics can be applied in under five minutes. My "dressy" make-up takes a bit longer (as it should), with which I like to have fun.
On regular days, it's as follows...
I use Aveeno tinted moisturizer (SPF 30) followed by some concealer and powder.
|MAC translucent powder|
And some blush...
|NARS in Orgasm|
|Rimmel in Sun Queen|
I love this eye-shadow palette my MIL gave me. It has pretty much everything.
|Laura Mercier eye palette|
This is hands down the best eyelash curler...ever...period. Go get one at Sephora, stat.
|Shu Umera eyelash curler|
The rest is pretty standard....
When I do wear eye-liner, it's this stuff. Or the smudgy stuff that I didn't get a picture of.
|Maybelline Line Stilleto|
|Covergirl Lash Blast Fusion|
That I can never have enough make-up. I always need another eye-shadow color. Or a different shade of blush. I need it all!
There are two things in my book that make the world of difference with make-up application.
One being good, quality brushes. I got these in college. I wash them with baby shampoo about every month and they have served me well.
Second, I absolutely HAVE to have a lighted mirror. Preferably to look into while sitting at a vanity looking down into my makeup drawer.
At least I'd be able to see well and apply well.
Although, I'd look like a cave woman.
