I feel kind of funny posting about my makeup routine since I’ve never considered myself very skilled in the makeup department and keep my look very simple and natural.
My entire makeup application process takes less than five minutes every morning.
Annnd one “before” picture after I had the common sense to remove the towel turban from my head…
I use the following products:
- Clean & Clear Dual Action Moisturizer
- Neutrogena Sun-Fresh Sunless Foam
- Dermablend Cover Creme (I buy this at Ulta)
- Milani Powder Bronzer (I buy this at Walgreens)
- CoverGirl Cheekers Blush
I start by using one squirt of the Clean & Clear moisturizing lotion all over my face. I then use one squirt of the sunless tanning foam. It is very light and I distribute it evenly over my face and lightly on my neck. It’s great for evening out skin tone and adding a light touch of color.
I then use the Dermablend Cover Creme to cover any blemishes or even out my skin tone if it’s looking blotchy. I then lightly apply the Milani bronzing powder using a MAC makeup brush which I love because it doesn’t pick up a ton of makeup at once.
After the bronzing powder, I use a little bit blush which I apply while smiling at myself to locate my cheekbones and looking like a total fool in the mirror.
Then it’s time for the eyes! My friend Merri taught me this little trick: Only apply eyeliner to the top lid. It prevents you from looking like a raccoon, but still provides a more dramatic look than mascara alone.
After applying eyeliner to my top lid, I use two coats of L’Oréal Voluminous mascara on my top and bottom lashes. This mascara is the best mascara in the world. I love it!!!
I actually save an old mascara wand to use to comb through my lashes so they don’t clump together. It’s a simple lil’ trick that I use daily.
What are your make up tips and tricks?
After that, I use the same Bonne Bell Dr. Pepper chap stick I’ve used since 7th grade and my routine is complete!
As you can see, my routine is really simple! I wish I had cooler tips to share!
Last night’s dinner made the perfect breakfast this morning!
I made a breakfast wrap with the leftover sweet potato hash as the filling.
It was tasty and quite filling!
Hope your Friday is off to a good start!
