I was inspired this morning by Miss A’s Free Skin Advice. She asked for mascara/liner advice and I’m pretty sure I wrote her a novel, which had me thinking I’ve been so busy talking about boys and friends and houses, that I never write about beauty duty. Here are my current favorite things for getting pretty post shower. *I have lots of favorite shower type beauty duty. Another blog, another day.
Primer: Smashbox Photo Finish– I don’t use this daily, but if you have days that you’re going to have make up on all day long it’s a good addition to your routine!
Blush: NARS in Deep Throat is amazing. A lot of people flip over Orgasm, but I think that Deep Throat is a little less pinky. I also mix it up with NARS Luster or MAC’s Buff. I don’t really wear bronzer, so sorry I have no recommendations there. I’m pretty fair complected, so sometimes bronzer looks dirty on me.
Eye Shadow: I’m always mixing it up. I think MAC has the best pigment for all day wear. The greatest to keep it on all day is MAC’s Paint Pots. The colored ones are fun, but I wear Soft Ochre every day. It dries fairly quick and unlike other cream shadows it doesn’t crease.
Mascara: I have a theory on that I have to switch up my mascara because my eyes get accustom to one kind and then it quits working. I know I’m crazy. But that being said I’ve tried about a million different mascaras. Bag Gal Lash from Benefit is holding down first place, but in a close second is MAC’s Plush Lash. Mostly because it’s only $11 and I buy mascara every 8 weeks or so.
