Like most girls, I love to play with makeup. Granted, I really don’t know what I’m doing when I play with it, but I do love to experiment!
Sabrina gave me this cute polka dot makeup bag last summer and in it I store all my goodies. I don’t really wear too much makeup on a normal day (newsflash: standing over a hot stove while wearing lots of mascara just doesn’t really work), but whenever I go out I have my normal regimen that I stick to.
And trust me, you don’t WANT to see me without any under-eye concealer. It’s a scary thing.
So on my face, I use Bare Minerals powder, ulta mineral blush and almay concealer. Been using these three products every day for years and love them all!
Now, what I really love to play with is my eyes! After hanging out with my friend Morgan in Austin a few weeks ago and letting her do my make-up every day, I became addicted to two new products: purple creme eyeliner and MAC swiss chocolate eyeshadow.
So basically, to get my everyday look, I’ll brush this pale pink eyeshadow all over my lid (Benefit “Leggy”) then brush a little bit of the swiss chocolate shade across the top of my lid to contour. Then, I’ll draw an ever-so-thin line of creme eyeliner (Smashbox “Midnight Purple”) across my top and bottom lash line…and then finish with black mascara!
Always black mascara.
Lips are easy.
Been using this gloss since high school (well, not the same one but..you know) and love it. I’ve never really been a lipstick girl but I love watermelon flavored lip gloss!
Oh! And while we’re talking about it, I have to show you the newest product I’m absolutely obsessed with:
I never truly lived until I found out about dry shampoo. I got this from Ulta (I really need to distance myself from that store) and love it. You’ll probably tell me it’s just talc in a spray bottle but I don’t care. I like my fancy spray talc.
And on that note, I’m off to apply another coat of waterproof mascara and stand in front of the stove.
