Natalie at Here I am, the Handmaid of the Lord is hosting a little link-up, so I'm joining in.
She asked for our make-up routine. While mine varies, here are a few of my favorite things...This bag holds all I need and it basically indestructible. It cleans well and comes in a ton of different colors.
^^^I switch between primers a lot. I've tried everything from Smashbox to Mac's BB Cream. This Benefit one I like a lot. The Mac one, not-so-much. However, I haven't switched from this foundation and mineral powder in years.
^^^This Bare Minerals blush has lasted for-ever.
^^^Mac's paint pots serve as a primer for my lids or my entire shadow routine on days when I just want minimal make-up. Painterly and Constructivist are staples for me.
^^^Not evidenced by this picture, I am not a faithful lipstick wearer. I have collected these different Mac shades over the years (time to toss some?), and I've had fun experimenting with them...
...but this Nars Bettina crayon and Mac Chestnut liner are my typical go-to these days. Unless I'm wearing a gloss, I feel like I always need a liner.
I saw a picture on Instagram of the lovely Caterina of Not Just a Pretty Dress. She is effortlessly gorgeous, and I wanted to try to copy one of her looks (her red lips and minimal makeup). For this, I wore my primer, foundation, mineral powder, paint pots, eye liner in the top lid, mascara and red lipstick (doesn't really sound minimal, does it?).
It probably took you longer to read this than it did for me to actually apply the make-up. I have drawers full of the stuff but find myself using the same few products over and over again!
Thanks for the fun link-up, Natalie!
