i've managed to pare things down to bb cream (i recently started using skin79 bb cream which is an asian/korean brand, i like its coverage better than the garnier and l'oreal i'd tried and the fact it has really good ingredients for your face), a dab of concealer under my eyes and on any spots, a dusting of my laura mercier mineral powder, a swipe of bronzer (to look more alive and to try and contour my face*), a swish of bright pink blush on cheeks, a dab of maybelline eye tattoo bad to the bronze on my lids, a line of l'oreal voluminous eyeliner in slate along my top lashes, a quick eyelash curl, a swoosh of rimmel scandal eyes mascara (love this stuff), and a dash of lipstick and/or gloss before we hit the road.
i realize i just said i pared things down and that probably still sounds like a lot of stuff, and maybe it is but what can i say, i like make up and can freely admit to being high maintenance.
the worst kind is women who think they are low maintenance but are really high maintenance.
(name that movie.)
i haven't timed myself this week but i think from face wash, insertion of contacts and through my pared down (ha) morning makeup routine is less than 10 minutes.
and for me, that's progress.
here's a great four minute routine (maybe i'll get there someday)
what's your pared down make-up routine like?
