Put on Your Face

This post is a tribute to my Mother. Ever since I can remember, my Mom never EVER left the house without her face on! So it comes naturally when a normal part of my morning routine is makeup. Whether it is adding just a tinted moisturizer or putting on a full face, I do it. If you happen to catch me out without a stitch of anything, please call a doctor as something is wrong! I decided to post a few of my favorites below and this is a typical morning. No plans for the day, just hanging out with my baby. Confession: I do not wash my face unless I wash my hair in the shower and I use a Q-tip and clean my ears! So the below routine is starting fresh after a shower.

Now with a baby, my order has changed. She goes down for her morning nap and I get started! Right now I can still feed/hold with one hand, so hair is first because that takes 2 hands. Blow dry, curl, done. Next is moisturizer. I recently switched to Origins GinZing face cream (Origins will give you samples to try before you buy.) After moisturizing, I use 2 products under my eyes, because after being up at night I need a little  boost! NARS radiant creamy concealer and Origins refreshing eye cream. Apply both with fingers. I am a sucker for Clinique superbalanced makeup because my skin is so sensitive, I have tried to stray and can't! Follow with bronzer by Laura Geller and blush by NARS in Orgasm. Seriously, it works on almost any face color.

My eyelashes are growing long and thick thanks to my favorite product, Latisse. I buy the 3ml bottle and have a secret tip to make it last twice as long. I am a firm believer in curling lashes, but man if you catch the inner corner of your eye...wowzer you won't ever do that again. Line lashes with MAC graphblack liner and apply mascara.  I use 2 different types of mascara. Both from Benefit, BAD gal lash and They're Real. Use BAD gal first then the other. Last two things are a quick swipe of eyeshadow from BareMinerals-Nude beach and Dior lip glow gloss. Perfection!

P.S. It took me longer to write this than it did to put all of this on. Once you make something routine, it just comes natural. Thanks Mom!ImageImage
