1. wash face

2. moisturize+put on eye cream

3. apply foundation

4. apply concealer (for undereye area and pimples/red spots)

5. apply blush or bronzer (rarely both together)

6. apply eye shadow (most of the times with MAC CCB underneath), rarely liner

7. mascara

that´s it. I usually don´t wear lipstick or lipgloss on regular days just cause I hate the fact that I always have to reapply. I only wear lip stuff on special occasions and for going out

Amron, because if you put foundation on right after your moisturizer then the moustorizer wont have time to sink in and do its work to your face. And Welcome! Youll love it here!

* concealor

* foundation

* double check concealor


* powder

* fill in brows

* e/s base like Lancome Hypnotique or MAC shadestick or paint

* highlight browbone & then apply e/s design

* eyeliner

* curl lashes

* mascara (usually MAC Zoomlash)

* false lashes

* blush & cheekbone highlight

* brush teeth

I don't apply my lips until right before I clock into work.
