Heather is away today so I thought I'd stop on by + say hello to her readers. I'm Sabrina + I blog over at cattails + cardigans. My blog is a place where I share stories about my life, my faith, things that inspire me + my cat, Gregory. Today I wanted to share with you all my day-to-day makeup routine. It's such a simple and easy way to make my eyes pop and you can change up the colors.
Lets Get Started:
For my face makeup- I start out with Sephora's Face Primer. (this is a sample- any primer will do) I apply it all over my face + places I will be applying my foundation. I then apply Hard Candy's Eye'm Tired, which is supposed to help with under eye circles. Then I apply my Age Rewind concealer under my eyes, around my nose + on any problem areas that I may have. Finally, I use E.L.F's Flawless Finish Foundation in Porcelain.
For my eyes- I have hazel/green eyes + I have been using lots of golds lately to make them pop. I am going to be using Sephora's Moonshadow Baked Palette in the color "In The Dark". I love this palette + I use it a lot. The colors are wonderful + show up great. Just to make sure my shadow stays on all day, I use Urban Decay's Primer Potion on my lids before I start applying eyeshadow.
Starting off, I use my regular eye shadow brush to apply a white shadow to the inside of my eyes. (1) After that I apply a goldeny- peach color to my full eyelid. (2) I take my Eye Crease Brush by E.L.F + add a dark brown to the crease in my eye. (3) Since the colors are so harsh, I go over them all with my Blending Eye Brush also by E.L.F.
(before blending it out)
To finish off the look, I add my new favorite mascara, Two Faced's Lashgasm Mascara. It makes my lashes look so amazing + I seriously am IN LOVE with this mascara.. and there we go. A simple, yet beautiful eye shadow routine that typically takes me about 5 minutes.
For fun you can add blush of any kind + some fun lipstick. I've been dying over NYX's lipstick lately + I can't wait to get my hands on some. They have such amazing colors + they're cruelty free.
Thanks for reading + thanks for having me Heather. I hope you all enjoyed this makeup look. Take a peep on over at my blog + come say hi!
