Make Me Up

A fellow redhead (hi Cara!) recently asked about my makeup routine so I thought I'd share. It's not very exciting - simple and natural is my goal. I try to keep my whole routine under 5 minutes.

Here are the goods:

1 - Lavanila Facial Sunscreen
 2 - Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer in Porcelain
3 - Nars Blush in Luster
4 - Benefit Brow Zing in Light
5 - Laura Mercier Eye Pencil in Brown Copper
6 - Smashbox Eye Shadow Trio (Nectar, Cinnamon Toast, and Roast)
7 - Covergirl LastBlast Mascara in Black-Brown
8 - Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lily

I start by washing my face with the Clarisonic Mia and then applying sunscreen.

To even out my skin tone, I apply tinted moisturizer all over my face with a round sponge.

Then I add a little blush to the apples of my cheeks.

Then I fill in my brows with a brow gel.

I apply a thin line of eyeliner, brush Nectar all over my lids and Cinnamon Toast on the base, then apply mascara. I don't like wearing a lot of eye makeup during the day, so I keep it really light.

I apply Burt's Bees Tinted Balm (then reapply 85,000 times throughout the day). I can't get enough.



That's it! At night I play up my eyes more and wear Revlon's ColorStay lipstick in Prized Peach.

Let me know what products you can't live without so that I can waste time in Target checking them out.
