In the middle of this year, I had a fairly intense makeup routine. I’d use shadow, liquid liner, foundation and powder. I’d carefully create a cat eye flick. Now? I’ve changed it up completely!
I’m back to a much simpler routine. It is easy, quick and so easily recreated!
I use a light foundation to cover dark circles and blemishes. Sometimes I use Primer (it depends if I have time).
Then I dust over my Covergirl powder using a brush.
Next I use my No 7 Felt Tip Liner to line on my upper lid only – as close to the top eyelashes as possible.
I then apply a coat of clear mascara to my eyelashes (top and bottom) and my eyebrows (to keep them in place).
I’ve mentioned before the issues I have when using black or coloured mascara. Since my eyelashes are so long, I find that they leave black lines on my eyelid.
Here’s a picture of my liner:
You can’t really see it, but it does add a bit of ‘pop’ to my eyes 😀
Here are the products I use:
I always add a bit of foundation to the side of my hand and then dab the brush in it.
I use Isabelle Dupont foundation.
No 7 Felt Top Eyeliner.
Jordana Clear Mascara ($2 shop find).
Cover stick from As Seen On TV in Glenfield Mall (North Shore, Auckland).
The brush is from the Chemist.
This is really such an easy, simple makeup routine.
