The Looks-Like-You-Don’t-Have-Any-Makeup-On Makeup Essentials

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, and health.

Makeup’s a real bitch.

Honestly though.

The application process takes some serious dedication.

Right?!

And when it comes to a daytime look, I’m not about to go all Kim K.

I like to keep it light, fresh, dewy, & chill.

No need for clown face on crack…ever.

Anyway if I’m lucky & actually have time for daytime makeup, here’s my OCD recipe/routine/regime:

Prime. Add a lil organic SPF ( find out why I’m a total sunscreen psycho maniac here ) mixed with a light tinted moisturizer & blend this mixture with ‘The Beauty Blender’. This pink sponge is like my bestie when it comes to blending. It seriously gets the job done & doesn’t leave a weird line of foundation. Add eyebrow gel to lashes, curl, more gel, curl again, mascara. Fill in brows with this badass brow kit. Def can’t live without a brow kit. It’s a game changer. After I fill in my brows I add eyebrow gel to my eyebrows ( more on that here ). Throw on a little minty fresh lip balm—- I love minty balm because no one likes smelling breathe. Mint flavored balm really helps with shine & conceals any odor. Lastly add a spray of finishing spray. This one by MAC is insane & sets the makeup, creating that dewy finish.

Oh! And after I take my makeup off, once a week, I use this secret face mask. More here. It takes care of any toxins on my skin & helps keep my skin so fresh & so clean, clean.

My full-blown makeup routine can be found in TSC book.

Oh, Hey Neon Eyes

Ok so if you’ve read TSC book you know I’m a big F-ing fan of all-natural makeup.

Like, I’m not Team Clown Face.

Sorry about it.

But. Lately I’ve been feeling kinda restless when it comes to makeup, so I sort of wanted to stir the pot a little.

And for me that means a pop of neon color.

Not a lot, just a lil, ya know?

So that’s where Urban Decay’s ‘Electric Pressed Pigment Palette’ in rad neon colors came in…

Ok, so the reason I adore this sex kitten kit is because it can be used as an eyeliner AND a shadow.

When I’m feeling bored but don’t want to overdo it, I’ll add a swipe of lime green under my eyes. This realllllly makes blue eyes pop. If you’re you a brown eyed girl, use purple. And if you have hazel babies, try grey mixed with blue.

Basically I’m all about evolving ( in general ). So a pop color is fun, fresh, & cool.

These neon shades are super pigmented so I don’t have to use a million coats. I wore the ‘rocker lock’ on a date night & I wore the pop of lime green on a coffee date.

& BTW: I totally don’t feel like Krusty the Clown on steroids with a lil neon pop.

F ya.

So if you’re looking for a natural look with a sassy, sexy vibe, try this palette out & thank me later.
