My daily makeup is nothing fancy at all! I sort of wish I could wear all the highlighters and contouring kits that are available now. But to be honest, I’m always running my kids around I don’t have the time to do all that on the daily.
Night time I soooo would! But I have a hard time spending so much on kits when I would rarely use it! Because let’s face it – in the mom life status, there aren’t very many evenings out (lol).
Therefore I feel I would pay for a nice expensive kit for it to sit there and rarely get used and then in a couple months there’s a whole new amazing kit out for hightlight and baking and all of the above !
There are really so many amazing products if anyone wants to give ME advice or share let me know !
As far as my daily everyday makeup goes…
Anastasia of Beverly Hills brow powder duo (in dark brown)
People often think I do the micro-blading in my brows, but I never have. In fact my brows are so light I definitely have to fill them in! The trick is to have an amazing brow esthetician first! The reason mine look so perfectly shaped are because of her 😉 I basically just outline the shape she has created and voila! Don’t get me wrong – there is a spot that could grow some hair and never does ! But having a great brow person is a must !!!
Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eyeliner (in color demolition)
I love this color because it’s a deep dark brown. Black for me is too dark and so this one works best for me, as far as my skin tone goes. It’s waterproof so it stay on well. I only wear this to line my upper lid.
I have the weirdest situation when it comes to lashes (haha). My lashes are actually a good length (of course they could always be longer) but they are straight and literally have no curve to them!!! (Insert crying face here) So I have to use a curler. I have tried every single expensive mascara out there thinking that it works best to help them stay after I use my lash curler but all have failed. The only one that works for me and does not make them fall at all is the one above. But in waterproof! So now it’s what I use and if they ever stop making it I don’t know what I will do (insert another crying face) 😉
If anyone has any other suggestions, I’m open to trying if someone has the same situation as me that has worked for them. But I am happy with my maybelline mascara 🙂
For my lower lash I do wear another maybelline mascara but it’s not waterproof. I wish the volum Express wasn’t waterproof but something in the waterproof is what helps my lashes stay curled.
I use this as my lower liner and it’s because it’s a dark brown and I like that it’s powder because it doesn’t make it such a deep color like a pencil would or liquid liner etc. The shadow look is more of a “softer” look which I prefer best for me specifically for daytime. I apply it wish MAC’s 266 angle brush and you can find it Here
I have been using this for as long as I can remember ! I have not tried anything else because I do love it and it’s what works for me. But I am curious to try other concealers that are newer in the market now. I only use this for under my eyes because I have dark eye circles. I just apply it on once a day and dab it on, it does stay pretty much all day. There have been times when I feel I have to reapply but it’s mostly times when I feel I have to “freshen up” my make up because I’m going somewhere in the evening and not just home with my kids lol!
This my blush for daytime and night time. It’s a soft color for daytime and night time I just apply a few more extra strokes. I don’t usually wear it in the daytime, only if that morning I feel like I NEED some color when I’m feeling blah! But usually I only wear blush for evening.
Well that’s it for now folks! Lately I’m so curious to try to get into foundation, but I’m scared (hehe) I don’t want to look thick or cake-y. But also as I mentioned before, it’s not something I would wear on the daily so for now, I’m content with not having one 🙂
(For evening makeup I do wear eyeshadow and darken my Lower liner and definitely lipstick! Also, depending on where I’m going I use lash strips which I’ve written about under my “travel essentials” )
Thanks so much for reading and if you have any suggestions for me to try feel free to let me know as I am not a make up expert!
