I like wearing make-up. It makes me feel more...polished.
I don't like going to a lot of trouble. I also hate taking it off at night. I also hate the end of the day "heaviness" that comes from wearing foundation, powder, blush, eyeshadow, eye liner, and mascara.
So I finally decided to throw out all the "rules" that I've ever been taught.
Here is my daily to semi daily arsenal.
I pluck daily. Don't worry you are a big girl, you can build up your tolerance. I apply the Lubriderm generously to my eyebrow and letting it sit for about a minute. Then I spend about 15 seconds plucking a few hairs. I only get the ones that are stray. Sometimes I neglect my eyebrows and they huddle together for comfort...right across my forehead. Hello, Unibrow.
When I'm just hanging out at home. I only use the clear mascara and a thin layer of eye shadow. I put a dark color just at the top of my lashes...I like to use green to match my eye color. Then I like a very thin layer of light pink.
This is me just hanging out at home. I "threw myself together" in less than 2 minutes.
When I'm going out I'll use a powder foundation and blush. They never feel heavy or greasy. You really don't need something expensive either. Just use small amounts. I also go heavier on the eye shadow and will drag out the icky gooey black junk if the night is really special. Brand doesn't matter. I hate washing off mascara.
