Simplifying Makeup



Planning to overhaul my make up kit and to achieve the more polished "no-make-up face".

1. Eye Brows - Clinique Superfine line for Brows in Soft brown or Cover Gril Perfect Point Plus in Grey Khaki

2. Eye Lids - Bare Minerals Primetime Brightening Primer or TooFaced Shadow Insurance in Candlelight.

3. Lashes - Shiseido Lash Curler. Wishfully wanting the pricey Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base.eusa_pray.gif

4. Lips - Clinique Superbalm Moisturizing Gloss in Currant or Black Honey or Almost Lipstick in Black Honey.

*notice that I don't use foundation. Im not a fan of full on make-up. My complexion is not so bad anyway, a dusting of Mineral Veil or Clinique Stay Matte Sheer pressed powder in Invisible Matte suffices. I apply blush first, under the "veil". This makes the blush "come through" instead of it sitting on top. If I have to use a concealer for blemishes, I would use the Clinique Redness Corrector. It's sheer but buildable. It covered this one blemish nicely. It's a "dry" conealer so there was no caking or cracking. I brushed over the mineral veil and everything blended into oblivion. I don't use eyeliner on my waterline just to limit too much tugging around my eyes.

BTW, the tweezers I use is the 4860 Aero Tweezer by Denco.

Aargh! it's 4:07am already.
