Summer Blog Challenge, Day 45- My Make-up Tips & Tricks

First of all, I say this...

Yeah, I am not the one to turn to for make-up tips and tricks.  In fact, I am the one who is probably in desperate need of them! ;D
I am that girl who decides to wear eye make-up for the first time in weeks, and then forgets that I put it on and a few hours later is rubbing her eyes.  :p

My daily routine itself is pretty simple- foundation, concealer, powder, blush, and then maybe a little bronzer (in summer) or mineral veil (in cooler months).  What is mineral veil you ask?  This nifty little powder that you brush all over your face and is like having your own photoshop in a tiny little jar.  I guess that may be my only trick?  (By the way, I got mine from theallnaturalface etsy shop.)  I usually finish up by putting a tiny amount of hair gel in each of my eyebrows and then using an eyebrow brush to brush them into place and tame them.  Us curly-haired gals can get crazy eyebrows!

On special occasions and public appearances, I wear a little eye shadow and some mascara.  Maybe even a little lipstick.  My favorite eye shadow to wear whatever the occasion is bareMinerals eyecolor in nude beach.  I wore it on my wedding day last May and have loved it ever since. 

What are your tips and tricks for a flawless look?  (Because I could use them! ;) )


  1. I love just doing a little mascara, and lip gloss for a hurry up, i need to get out of the house look.

  2. False eyelashes ~ I can look like I'm actually awake ;)

  3. Instead of rubbing my eyes, they just water and make me look streaked!

  4. Crazy eyebrows? Yep. Lol. I also rub my eyes often, since I never remember when I use eyeliner. It ends up halfway down my face within the hour. He he.

  5. Your non-tips sound like the ultimate tips to' naturale!! A little goes a long way!

  6. I use all natural makeup and it works wonderful for my skin. Love it!

  7. I rub my eyes all the time. Then wonder where the black and green stuff on my fingers came from and run for a mirror when I realize what I must look like!!
