Makeup Monday: Daily Makeup Looks

Hello friends!

I’ve started sharing some of my daily makeup posts on Instagram and I thought I would share them with you, too {with shopping links!}.  I absolutely love makeup.  But if makeup is not your thing, I love that too.  That’s the beauty of makeup: it’s your face.  If you don’t love it, don’t wear it.  😉  Personally, I love how it makes me feel, I love how a bright lipstick brightens the day, I love playing with a smoky eye or colored mascara.  It’s my art, and it allows me to be creative {much like my closet remixes and style challenges}.  This video has gotten a lot of press in the last week, and I personally loved it.  I echo her sentiments 100% — makeup is fun!

I’m no makeup artist, but I do love experimenting with different looks.  I’ve been reaching into my makeup archives and using things I haven’t used in a while, which has been really fun.  And I am absolutely loving using a BB cream on its own, instead of as a primer under foundation.  I never could have done this six months ago, such a great feeling!  While I do prefer medium coverage, it’s nice to have the option, especially on hot weekend days.  Adios, acne!

Tip: even if your eyelashes aren’t as blonde as mine {side note – I’m jealous!}, try a lash primer to maximize the color payoff.  I used to use this one, but Chanel’s is the best.  It keeps my lashes from drying out and eliminates smudging and fall out.
