Clean and Fresh for a Shower

Although I own makeup in amounts that are a bit embarrassing at times, I really don't wear a lot at all. An example can be the following photo, which depicts how I decided to slap it on for my friends-hosted bridal shower (which by the way, left me laughing so hard that I think I may now need botox for my laugh lines).Here's what was used:


*Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 5.5 (my all time go-to, won't break me out, won't be too thick, just "me, but better" makeup)
*Smashbox Bronzer in Suntan Matte (hi, did you say that Kim Kardashian uses this? Thanks, I will too!)
*MAC Mineralized Skinfinish in Refined


*MAC Grand Duo Mineralize Blush in Grand Duo
*Smashbox eyeshadow in Bliss on the inner corners
*DiorShow Mascara


*Shu Uemura Lip Pencil in Brown 718
*MAC Cremesheen Lipstick in Jubilee

Not a whole lot, right? This is pretty indictative of my day to day look (minus the use of blush as a shadow)--and as I reflect on the photos (which are rarely taken), I realize that perhaps I could do with a bit more. It's just that most of the time I can't be bothered. Catch me in the evening, and it may be a whole different story ;)

What does your everyday routine look like or consist of?

I have been wanting to try the the Armani Silk for a long time.. it looks like a potential foundation for me. I think they also have a bronze for summer tans versison.. which sounds different!

Is it matte or natural fisish?

Tali said...

ps.. I think you dont need that much make-up but because we want to feel like we 'needed' the 25 bronzers in our collection we end up piling it on at ties! :)

@tali: yes, they just came out (or maybe it's on the verge of coming out) with a new summer bronzer line..yessss! i think that the finish is quite natural--my skin leans toward being dry, so if it were too matte it would bother me. it's light and doesn't have the MOST coverage, but definitely a good amount.

and yes again...the bronzer thing..so out of control! i'm restraining myself from making the next 10 posts about bronzer reviews!

you look lovely :) I especially love the beachy wavy hair you have going :)

I use the milani luminous blush as an e/s all the time. It's a great pink/gold for the eyes

fantastic said...

@bubblegarm: thank you! i think i got the idea from you! i'm so not the person that mix-uses with my blushes!

@ladyb: hmm..i think i know just the blush you're talking about--guess what i'm going to try out for shadow next?! thanks ;)

@eseta: girl...thanks! and don't even get me started with the ugly thing! don't forget that i've seen many a photo of you, and that's FAR from the case!
