Hi everyone! Today’s post is a response to requests I have gotten from you about my makeup routine. Thank you so very much for your emails and comments! When it comes to makeup, I prefer something that’s “barely there”.
Let’s start with a BEFORE photo where I am “naked” without any makeup.
I like to apply a thin layer of primer first. In the summer months I choose something that has SPF in it. Glow Time from Jane Iredale gives me the right amount of coverage and sun protection. When it comes to primer, foundation or any other powder and eye makeup, I use Jane Iredale mineral products. The reason I have stuck with this brand for several years now is that their products give me coverage, protection, they do not cause any allergic reaction on my skin and they are non-comedogenic, letting my skin breathe. I believe that makeup that enhances your beauty is an essential part of being a woman, however not at the price of feeling uncomfortable all day.
Amazing Base loose powder is the one and only foundation powder I use. It’s wonderfully lightweight and it gives me a natural look.
Well groomed eyebrows sound like easy to forget details, however they make a big difference in your overall look.
This eyebrow kit has been a long “friend” of mine. First I apply a bit of the transparent brow wax to keep things in place, then some color to give my eyebrows more definition and fullness.
Mystikol is a brand new product to me that I recently started experimenting with. This eyeliner and highlighter is very creamy, super easy to apply and gives my eyes more definition than a regular eyeliner.
When it comes to mascara, I am not too picky. I am always ready to try out the latest and greatest that promises more length and volume.
However, when it comes to lipsticks, I am not the experimenting kind. I figure out what works and I stick to it. I have three colors (one of them transparent) and I that’s just enough. When I am not about to impress someone, I usually wear something that has barely any color. Just Kissed gives me a hint of pink and it moisturizes my lips at the same time.
Thank you so much for all the love and have a wonderful weekend!
