I don’t know about the rest of you, but I feel naked without my face on when going out for an evening (which doesn’t happen often, but still).
So I thought I’d share my not so daily, but simple, makeup routine.
I like to start with a fresh, smooth base (or as smooth as possible given my dry patch prone, combination skin), so I like to use some good old fashioned apricot scrub from St. Ives, I moisturize with Clinique Dramatically Different, which does the job, but isn’t mind blowing (I have yet to find a moisturizer that is), I add a few drops of Farsali Rose Gold Elixir (and I mean 2- 3 drops, no more or your end result will look greasy).
I start with mascara, I have been using Bourjois Volume Clubbing Mascara for years, and I keep coming back to it, the volume it adds is everything, I go in with one coat, wiggling the brush from the roots upwards, really working it in there, then pencil in my brows with my Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil in hazel, my brows are naturally black, while my hair is again, NATURALLY, ash brown (why cruel world, why?), so I use this shade to lighten them while filling them in and not leaving them too harsh.
I then go back in with a second coat of mascara (Confession: I sometimes go in for a third after too), a touch of Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara sets my eyebrows and lightens them further. I use a Q-tip to clean up my brows, following the arch, and also any mess I made with the mascara.
