Comfort Look


When I was in High School & College- I absolutely loved experimenting with makeup. Different colors, different products, different techniques.  As I've gotten older ( Mid-20's...really??)- and kind of gotten into a groove schedule-wise, I kind of know what I do like, what I don't like & what I have time for.  (Not to say that I'm not still trying new things!)

On Thursdays, it's my "two job day."  So I work from about 8am to 8pm.  About an hour before I have to head to my second job, I prep my face so I don't look like I've just worked an 8 hour day with a toddler. :)

I use three primary products and do my hair in a quick top knot (if I didn't choose to spend an hour straightening my hair the night before, blah!).





So, I thought I'd share with you a quick, super easy way to look fresh without going through a ridiculous amount of steps & products.



1. I apply Line Stiletto Eyeliner
2. Enough mascara to create the look that I'm going for- I really like Lancome & Clinique Mascaras
3. I use Revlon Spa Illuminator to give myself a dewy glow. I apply it the apples of my cheeks, bridge of my nose, on my forhead slightly above both brows, a dab on my chin.  
* For a really fun trick, dab a little illuminator at the top of your lips- makes them look fuller. :)

I love Clinique make-up!

Great tips!

I also love a good revitalizing spray - like rosewater or e.l.f. has an inexpensive refreshing face mist that works wonders. :)

So simple, but such a fresh look! I love it! I'm glad that you shared this. Not that I wear makeup regularly, but it'll be nice to do something quick like this if I ever need to go from none to some!
