Long on Stripes
I swear I put on makeup before I took these photos but alas somehow I still managed to look like I do before I wake up in the morning.
Granted, I'm not the most adept in the beauty department. My daily makeup routine consists of concealer, pressed powder, some shade of nude lipstick and sometimes mascara. That's it, seriously.
On occasion I may do a swipe of blush and some shadow for my brows, but somewhere along the way, I realized that I was bad with makeup and just plain gave up trying to learn. Things like eye shadow - and eye liner especially - give me the jeebies. I've tried looking up video tutorials but they just depress me. Usually anything I put on my lids end up migrating down to my cheeks within a few hours.
What I won't leave the house without putting on? Concealer (gotta hide those relentless under-eye circles! I like this cream, this powder and this combo) and Burt's Bees lip balm to keep those chapped lips at bay.
Is there any type of makeup that intimidates you? What do you have to use on your face before can start your day?
