Doesn’t matter if I’m going to work or just a quick trip to the store, I always have to have some makeup on at all times. It could be as simple as a swipe of mascara or a lightly tinted lip gloss, doesn’t matter, just gotta have something!
In general, I usually keep my makeup light and simple. It’s not much, but it helps me feel “put together” without looking overly made up. The grand total of makeup I currently have in my makeup bag?…..10! Shocked? Me too! Don’t worry, I have more stored in the bathroom closet for when I’m preparing for a special occasion or need to transition from a day to night look!!
My current makeup products!
Here’s a glimpse of my basic, everyday makeup routine that I’ve mastered in 10 minutes or less ( Ah, the joys of being a parent. 0 time to yourself).
Step 1. Oil-Free Moisturizer.
Step 2. Concealer under eyes and on post acne scars
Step 3. Foundation
Step 4. Bronzer to create a sun kissed look on cheek bones, jawline, and outer forehead
Step 5. Blush on cheek bones
Step 6. A dust of loose bronzer glimmer powder on cheeks for a touch of shimmer
Step 7. Eyes. Light Cappuccino across entire eye lid and brow bone. Dark brown in the crease for added dimension.
Step 8. Using a black matte eye shadow, I smudge a think line onto my top and bottom lash line.
Step 10. 2 coats of mascara
Step 11. Finish with a smooth layer of neutral lipstick
Transforming this look from day to night glam is simple!
