Does anyone else do ipsy.com??
My sister got me a subscription for my birthday last year and it has been very entertaining.
This month I got fake eyelashes. WTF?
And a browbone highlighter. I love browbone highlighter... I particularly love the one called arch'de triumph by Soap & Glory. Target carried it and doesn't anymore. We just got Ulta here so I bought one there on Saturday morning... and got one in my ipsy bag when I got home.
My mom got me a Sephora Sun Safety Sampler this year after I oogled hers for years. Pretty awesome. You can see a good review of it over here.
I like sunscreen. I'm in search of the perfect high SPF tinted sunscreen. I like Dr Brandt's. The Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream is ok. The Garnier one made me a little greasy. And I like Aveda tinted moisturizer. Anyone have something else they love? I was loving the spf moisturizer from Clinique but daytime moisture AND a bb cream seems like overkill.
I tend to be pretty low maintenance about makeup and skin care but I like to think of it more as classy & elegant & simple. The Hepburn Approach if you will....
I love my clarisonic (a fantastic Mother's Day-Birthday-Easter gift from my mama). I tend to use simple (read: cheap) liquid cleansers with it. I used to buy masks and stuff... now I usually just use a pinch of baking soda. Is that terrible? If I meet a goal here in the near future I'm getting myself some Josie Maran Face Cleaner Oil.
When I stop aging gracefully and decide to start fighting it I will be more diligent about using Boots #7 intense serum. I might also try their BB cream. Do they have a bb cream? They do but it looks like the spf is only 15.
I've been playing around with bronzer and highlighter stuff every since I saw this post.
And I love, love, love Nars blush.... in orgasm.
And I've been wearing grey eyeliner since my mom got me my first one in 6th grade. It was Jafra. Who remember Jafra? But sometimes I branch out to black or green or navy.
I look great in a nice two-tone brown eyeshadow. I can pull it off (as long as the lips are neutral) and I use a bit of brow highlight. I also have learned to finish the look with some brown eyebrow pencil if I really want to look polished. (Ok, right, not often)
I really, really want to be a mascara wearer. It looks so nice. I never wear it. I smear it. But I try.
Finish with a decent gloss on the lips. Done.
Or, the speed routine: smear on bb cream, dash on a bit of blush, maybe a dash of bronzer in summer, eyeliner, brow highlight. GO. There's a lip gloss in the car, just GO.
