I don’t have a very extensive makeup routine. Whether I’m heading to work or out to a more formal affair, I follow the same few steps to achieve my look. With an addiction to bold lipsticks, I always keep my eyes minimal, having not even owned eyeshadow till
Santa my mom put this palette in my stocking this past Christmas. So for my daily eye makeup routine, I figured I’d share my few steps that I do in the mornings to achieve my everyday eyes.
In my toolbox: LORAC ‘Pro’ Palete | Revlon Photo Ready Eye Primer Brightener
LORAC ‘Front of the Line PRO’ Liquid Liner | Benefit ‘They’re Real” Mascara
Step 1: I have issues with under eye circles, so I like to use a brightener that is lightweight but also conceals my dark areas.
Step 2: For my fair skin, I use the ‘Cream’ color to provide a neutral base to my eyelids.
Step 3: To add a bit of color, the ‘Light Pink’ compliments my blue eyes and works with my skin tone and rosy cheeks.
Step 4: Somewhere between a winged tip and a normal line is how I usually wear my liquid eyeliner. With a steady hand and years of practice I take the line from the inner corner all the way to the outer edge of my eye.
Step 5: For the past year this is the only mascara I’ve used as it makes my already long lashes full and voluminous.
