You know that point when everything in your make-up bag is either broken or one use away from being completely gone? Due to my impressive ability to procrastinate, my collection has been well past that point for the last month.
Today I decided to finally do something about it. Here are my go-to essentials that I picked up today. The result is a streamlined routine which takes about ten minutes, because yes, I also put off getting out of bed in the morning.
First, I apply Bobby Brown foundation (2) to the tops of my eyelids to act as a base for Stila’s Kitten eyeshadow (8). After applying eyeshadow I curl my lashes and then, with a use of a slanted brush, apply Chanel’s Navy eyeshadow (6) as liner. Next, I use Maybelline’s Colossal Volume mascara (7) on my top and bottom lashes– it might actually be better than falsies– and Great Lash clear eyebrow gel (5) and Maybelline eyebrow pencil (3) on my brows. After applying Bobby Brown’s foundation stick under my eyes I use Almay’s Smart Tint (1) (diluted with a little moisturizer) all over my face and dust with a little Maybelline mineral powder (4).
With any extra time I put on blush and swipe some Victoria Secret gloss. If I don’t have an extra time, I just pinch my cheeks and lick my lips as I walk/run to the subway.
