Day 18 – What’s in your makeup bag?
Well, actually, I don’t have a makeup bag. 😀 I don’t use much makeup! What do I use? I’ll explain…
My skin is clear and smooth without the help of any foundation or face powder, so I’ve never used anything like that… although I do have several moles on my neck and forehead that I kind of wish weren’t there. I’ve also got a couple of dark brown freckles scattered here and there on my cheeks.
When I want to look especially nice, I’ll use Covergirl Lash Perfection Mascara. Brown-Brown if I’m going for a subtler look, Brown-Black if I want my lashes to stand out a little more. I never, ever use Black-Black, it would look too fake with my fair complexion and light brown eyebrows.
When I was younger I used to hate the idea of mascara… I’d only tried it once when I went to a wedding at age 14, but it was ‘waterproof’ stuff and very sticky. Yuck. This non-waterproof mascara is much nicer, and if I don’t apply any to the lashes on my lower eyelid, there’s no danger of black streaks from laughing-so-hard-you-cry tears. 😀
Then for the bling! 😀 If I want to get all fancy, I add some sparkle and shimmer with a touch (not too much!) of lip gloss. My very favorite brand is Liplicious from Bath & Body Works. I’m currently digging “Radiant Raspberry” (above) and “Strawberry Splash” (below).
