Hi Guys! Today I am sharing some of my favorite make up products. I was with some girlfriends last night telling stories and people laughed out loud when I informed them that I was a total tomboy growing up. Especially when I showed them the picture of me in the 5th grade in my hockey uniform, bull-cut in full force. How did that kid turn out to be SO girly?!
I LOVE make up. Period. Being able to change how I look each day and for different occasions is so much fun. Plus make up helps me feel put together.
I don’t wear a ton each day. I work with toddlers and spend a lot of time writing at home and exercising and playing with the dogs. There’s no use for it there. But I love wearing “day” makeup if I’m meeting people on the weekend, or putting on “night eyes” for a dinner downtown.
The first thing I put on my face after hopping out of the shower is actually coconut oil! I love the feeling of it on my skin. I feel like my pores open up and soak it in. I let it dry and apply my makeup primer to keep my products on all day long. Then I apply my concealer (my absolute favorite product as I tend to have darker circles under my eyes than most) & foundation. I think the products you put on your skin before your eye make up is the most important. It blends everything together.
I use ‘Natural Eye’ shadows to keep myself from looking too done up. But I will put on a darker color for the ‘night eye’ look…
My favorite make up trick is actually the cat-eye! You drag your liner out to the side of your eye just a tad and it gives your eyes a little bit of a lift. Then you put on your mascara and voila! You’re a mega babe. Wahooooooo :)
