Today I was in the mood for something different. I normally shower at night and in the morning I dedicate whatever little time I have before I head to the office, to my hair and make up. Most of the time I put mascara on, nude lips and some blush.
Today I decided to spice it up. I started with my make up first (usually I always pick shoes first). So for the make up I did very natural smokey eye using Naked palette by Urban Decay. Then I used a thin eyeliner (almay) to line my eyelids lightly. I applied mascara and I was done.
I don’t tend to ever touch my eyebrows. I feel like that gives my face a masculine look for some reason. Or maybe I’m just doing the whole eyebrow thing wrong. So i leave it alone. I like my shape naturally anyway. So all I do is wax it once a week.
As for the lips, I decided to be a rebel! I first used Currant lipliner from MAC and once I put it on, I smudged it with my finger all around my lips so it wouldn’t look so harsh and sharp. That color is very, very deep and loud so had I left it like that I’d look like a chola.
Then I applied Rebel lipstick by MAC. After I put that lipstick on, I always end up taking toilet tissue and kissing it so some of that color comes off. I don’t like it when it’s too dark. I look gothic. But I like it when it’s darker on the corners and lighter in the middle of the lips. Kind of like the ombre style. And to finish it off I applied “Oversexed” lipglass by MAC. It looks perfect that way! At least for my skin complexion that is.
I don’t like to use any powder, for the Stiletts that have asked. For foundation I rotate it, depending on how I’m feeling that day, but my all time favorites are Chanel, Armani Luminous silk foundation, or Estee Lauder. I always add a drop of Smashbox Luminizer to the foundation and then I mix it well together. I have found that it gives me a natural glow without applying anything extra to my cheeks.
After foundation I add a bit of a bronzer (I like to use YSL) and finish it all off with Melba blush by MAC. And Voila! Done~
I have an oily skin so I always pat my face with tissue paper so that it absorbs the oil. I try to do that as often as I can throughout the day. I don’t use any primer usually, but that’s cuz I barely have time in the morning. My make up stays on pretty good throughout the day, I have to admit.
So that was my look for today! Hope you like it!
