In stead of posting my regular face of the day, I decided to do it a little different this time. The before & after pictures demonstrate why I love makeup! When using it, you really don’t have to look ‘all made up’. I don’t use makeup to become a whole different person, I use it to appear more polished, more awake and less tired.
It doesn’t take a lot of time to do a full face of makeup either. When I do my ‘everyday basic face’, it cost me about 10 minutes. This involves foundation, contour and blush for my face, eyeliner and mascara for my eyes and a lipgloss. Ideal for when I need to be somewhere and I’m in a rush, but I still need to look decent. Which is pretty much always.
Below is the makeup I used for this look and more pictures. This is the first time I’ve done a before and after and I gotta say… not my favorite thing to post. Kinda embarrassing to see the ‘before’ (no makeup, right out of bed) picture… lol! Oh, well!
