I thought I would step out of the ordinary blogging mode this morning, and write a post about the make up that I use (when I actually wear make up). While in high school, I would not be seen without anything less than perfectly made up eyeshadow and face. However, I go with less make up as I have gotten older and more comfortable in my own skin. Not to say that playing with make up isn’t fun, because it most definitely is.
I must be really comfortable in my own skin to be posting a before photo. Really, the thought should make me cringe… but it doesn’t. I feel truly at peace with myself during this point in my life. Now I will stop with the blabbering and get down to business.
For the face, I use no brand concealer & powder, NARS sheer glow foundation and NARS bronzer and blush.
I wasn’t a fan of foundation until recently. I hated the way that it felt on my face. That was until I started using the sheer glow foundation. It is light and evens out my skin tone without looking like I have a pound of make up on. NARS brand of make up is goddess sent. I also adore the bronzer/blush combination in orgasm and laguna.
Now for the fun part! Urban decay is to the eyes as NARS is to face. In other words, I am obsessed with their eyeshadow. I also have some mac eyeshadow that I like to play with too.
I use the brown mac eyeshadow for my eyebrows (they are practically nonexistent). Mac eye highlighter in Phloof. Urban Decay eyeshadow in S&M and Oil Slick. Urban Decay eyeliner and no brand mascara.
I use Phloof from the eyebrow to mid eye. S&M from the lashes to the mid eye and Oil Slick in the crease of the eye.
And to top it off, mac pink lipstick for some color and a sheer gloss.
My after photo.
If I want to do more of a smokey eye then I blend in more of the Urban Decay Oil Slick. I was going to a Christmas party so I didn’t want too much.
Make up has always been one of my favorite things to play around with. I remember when I was little and would get into my mom’s make up bag and make a huge mess of myself.
