Daily Makeup Routine

Covergirl, Maybelline, Elf, and Rimmel- My Daily "Go-To's"

I have been receiving quite a number of emails regarding my daily makeup regimen lately. In all honesty, it only takes me 10 minutes to "put my face on" so to speak. I start with a pressed powder foundation (Maybelline is my go-to!) and apply a few drops of water to my sponge to create a smooth application. Once dry, I pat on some blush with a big faced brush. I line my eyes with Rimmel eyeliner (I tend to smudge it around the corners when finished with a Q-Tip.) For a night out or a special event, I'll line my upper lids with a liquid liner cat eye Circa 1961 and mascara.

When it comes to Lipstick, truth be told, just a few years ago I never would have stepped outside in super bright lipstick. Why you ask? Because I shied away from the attention and it felt like a spotlight on my face. I would wonder, "Was I too made up? Did I look like a clown?" I wasn't comfortable with the added attention it might bring my way. Instead, I would only wear lightly tinted glosses or nude lipsticks.

Now? Well, now I certainly embrace the idea of colorful lipstick. I feel more confident in it. It makes me happy to catch a reflection of my colorful lips. I feel alive and confident. It reminds me (and also makes me question) why I was so afraid to break out of my shell before? In high school, I was so different from who I have become now. I am much more comfortable in my skin now then I was back then. I think that's a part of most every teenage girl's territory though, growing up and feeling awkward or shy? Now, I can't get my hands on enough richly hued makeup. It's a great way to experiment and have fun. Makeup is just as much of an accessory as the latest "it" handbag or stylish new shoes. And much more affordable too. I say dig in and play!

Love your make-up picks. I never tend to wear colours on my lips during the day I prefer nude shades but I love your lipsticks

Your make up always look so natural. Thank you for sharing your experience - I would experiment with more lipstick hues as well.
