Natural Makeup

More specifically, I use: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]

The Process

  • Apply concealer #1 as your all-over base. This needs to match your skin color.
  • Use a lighter concealer to draw a triangle under your eye to the corner of your nose, then up to the inner corner of the eye.
  • Wait a couple minute for it to set.
  • Apply your loose powder all over. Don’t forget to blend down your neck.
  • Apply a non-sparkly blush to the apples of your cheeks, swooping up your cheek bones.
  • Apply a natural-color eyelid primer to your lids and blend with your finger.
  • In the crease, apply a mid-shade matte brown.
  • On the lids, apply your lighter bronze color.
  • Using the light concealer (#2), apply a small amount to the brow line as a highlight.
  • Take an all-over brush sweep it all over your face. This will pick up the excess powders and blend for a natural finish.
  • Apply mascara (no eyeliner), using either brown or black.

In Conclusion

Actually without makeup to with makeup, but looking like all you did was put on mascara. I didn’t include this in the list of products, but I always wear Burt’s Bees on my lips. Al-ways. It helps them look smoother and shinier.

Happy Fall Equinox

I usually don’t post on Saturdays, but today is the start of fall–and well, I have to celebrate in my most fall outfit. The “Stanford” sweater is actually vintage! It belonged to my mom in the 80’s. The lace0side leggings (I don’t get to wear these nearly enough, btw) are from Papaya. The cute collared hearts piece was supposed to be a dress–but it totally shrank. Yes, again with my ELF Cheerful Cherry lipstick. It really is my fall favorite.

Even though the Fall Equinox is today, I don’t feel like fall has really set in. It’s definitely starting to creep around the corner, but I’m still holding out for 60 and 70 degree temps. Enough of this heat already! (But don’t come for a while, Winter.)

But, regardless of if we like it, the seasons are changing. Whether you pronounce it “Ee-quinox” or “Eh-quinox,” let’s remember to come together at this Season of Thankfulness–and let’s just all get along, okay?!

Homemade Lip Exfoliant

I know Maria is usually the DIYer, but I saw this adorable idea on Pinterest and had to try it out! I also had a Bridal Shower to go to and I figured it’d be a cute gift! So I made it–and then tried it out, and then wrapped it up all nice. Voila!

1 part Brown Sugar

1 part Olive Oil

1 part Honey

Mix and enjoy! Although I added more brown sugar and if I had to redo the recipe, I’d add a little less olive oil.

For the container, I used an empty ELF Nail Polish Remover (obviously sanitized) holder. I was/am pretty proud of myself.
