make-up talk

i’ve had some readers ask about the make-up products that i use on a daily basis, so i thought i’d share with you! i swear by MAC foundation and covergirl mascara. and, being that i’m a mark. rep, it kinda makes sense that i use a lot of their products too. you can shop mark. products here

and these photos were taken when i still had blonde hair! but, you get the picture.

    Oh. I was just talking about asking Santa for some new makeup brushes the other day!

    I am one of those girls who uses her fingers to dab concealer (bad – I know) so this taught me a thing or too!

    Tks 🙂

    Why do you need under concealer and under eye foundation? Hmmm. I've never done that and now I feel like I'm missing something. haha

    Thank you so much for showing these! I would love for you to make a new make up routine tutorial video! Also, what products do you use for skincare? As far as face wash, moisturizer? Do you use a different face wash/moisturizer at night than in the morning before make up? Thanks again for your blogging! Love it! 🙂

    Lauren, Are you wearing any eyeliner? Your eyes just pop! Or do you use one of the eyeshadow colors as liner? Wet or dry? Sorry for all the ????'s. Also, what color is your mascara? It almost looks blue in some of the pics. Please help! Thanks! Denise

      i wasn't using any eyeliner in those photos! since then, i've started using eyeliner (and rarely use eyeshadow) but i think my mascara is good at making them pop! my mascara is just black!

  12. I use the exact same mascara and have for years and years . Even though it's dirt cheap it's the greatest!
