I'm going to go through the suggestions of things to write about given by the entrants into my June contest, starting with the easier ones. Like Geminita's, which said "Blog about makeup! Show us your favorite products, looks and how to pull them off." Seems like a good place to start!
So what do I have on?
Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer; Clinique Moisture Sheer SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer in Neutral; Clinique Almost Makeup SPF 15 Pressed Powder in Fair; Lancome Blush Subtil Delicate Oil Free Powder Blush in Cedar Rose.
Pop Beauty Eye Magnet Primer; Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightener; Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black; Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in 1999; The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes Eye Shadow in Palette 16 (Midnight Black and Moonlight Silver only).
Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey
I know that sounds like a ton of stuff, but it isn't time consuming. My morning routine goes like this:
1. Put on water for coffee (we use a French press)
2. Use bathroom, put on deodorant and perfume; brush teeth, wash face
3. Put on makeup
4. Pour now-boiling water into French press
5. Get dressed
6. Pour now ready coffee into thermos
It's about 25 minutes total, and however long it takes a small kettle of water to boil is how long it takes me to put my makeup on. Less than 15 minutes for sure.
