I really need to upgrade my photography skills, so I apologize in advance for taking these before & afters with my iPhone. The goal of this post is to show you the power of makeup, and how much fun it is!
Makeup is a fantastic way to be creative, have fun, and become more comfortable with one’s natural features. This morning? Wasn’t feeling very creative. Actually didn’t really feel like getting out of bed! ha ha ha! So comfy!
Solution? My favorite tinted moisturizer by Laura Mercier, Eyeshadow in Tease by Urban Decay — with emphasis on the new waterproof black gel liner by Cailyn. I picked up this amazing gel eyeliner at the International Makeup Tradeshow, and was drawn to its packaging. The packaging is super convenient with a built in makeup brush. The point on the brush is flexible, so you can shape the brush to do a dramatic line or a thin liner. This liner has a 24 hour staying power, super, super easy to apply!
For the lips, I lined my entire lips with an NYX lip liner in pink. For the middle of my lips, I took a very very small amount of a mid-tone pink by Obsessive Compulsive in the color Memento — just to smooth out the lip liner.
You can bronze yourself up if you want or keep it super simple, and skip the contouring. Whatever route you may choose, you can achieve this simple makeup look in 10 min. Plus all the products fit in your back pocket. Have fun!
