Here's a quick post of my daily standard - the necessities I use to "put on my face." More or less.
I'm not one to wear heavy makeup in general. If I have to do anything, it would be to curl my eyelashes and throw on some mascara!
I'm lucky to say that I'm fortunate to have good skin, perhaps a fussy spot or two during that time of the month, but I can usually get away with a dab or two of concealer on scars and redness or a light sweep of mineral foundation over for a lighter coverage. I pop some blush on the cheeks, add a highlighter or bronzer for a glow, add in some deeper color to my brows and I'm most ways there. I've been loving Nars Lovejoy and Albatross! I like to use some sort of base on my eyes, usually I'll go with the Urban Decay eye primer potion, but sometimes I like to mix it up with a subtle shadow or paint pot if I'm feeling fancy (MAC Groundwork for ya). I throw on a simple cat eye flick with my trusty Stila pen, curl my lashes, add some mascara, and I'm good to go! I've found that waterproof mascara works perfectly for my straight lashes, they hold a curl and my lashes look great all day - I've been loving the Tarte Lights, Camera, Splashes mascara!
