Fresh out of the shower...which is in itself an accomplishment! ;) You moms of little ones know how hard it is sometimes to squeeze that in! And, speaking of little ones, for my facial moisturizer, I simply use J & J Baby Lotion. For me it works the best...although I may need to "grow up" and find one to help with those smile lines that I see creeping up around my eyes!
My face after adding a bit of matte powder (Cover Girl) and some Maybelline Mineral Power loose powder blush. (I really don't like wearing foundation, and never have...it always feels too thick on my face).
Whoa, there's my eye! I added a little (elf) black eye liner (which I sometimes wear, sometimes don't) and some eyeshadow (Cover Girl Shimmering Sands) and Maybelline Mascara...Colassal in very black for the top lashes and Discovery (the slim mascara) for the bottom lashes...the larger brush always seems to smeer onto my skin when I try it on the lower lashes. Oh, and I also smudged the eye liner with a Q-tip before adding the eye shadow...I like the "smoky" look I guess! I put just a tad of eye shadow underneath my lower lashes too for some extra sparkle!
Okay, view from the top of my eyelids/lashes...don't pay attention to my nose...I think that I need to use some of those biore nose strips! Haha! I'll blame any and all skin problems on my pregnancy! ;)
My face after "adding" my eyes, and after putting on just a bit of Burt's Bees chapstick to moisten my lips a bit.
And, to finish up I just added a bit of Cover Girl's lip stain to my lips to add a bit of color and then some Neutrogena lip gloss for a bit of shine.
Viola, I'm done! Now, my hair...that's another story. I am extrememly low maintenance with it...it is usually just air-dried, brushed and then either put up in a pony tail or held back with a head band. Someday I'll add making my hair all pretty to my beautification routine!
The few simple (and inexpensive) things that I use on my face. Sorry, no major beauty tips here, but this is what works for me!
