Ok, so I would be lying if
I told you that I never left my house
without makeup, but I just don’t feel like myself unless I take a few minutes
to apply/use the following four products: eyelash curler, mascara, bronzer, and
First things first, I MUST
curl my lashes. My stick straight eyelashes benefit greatly from a few pumps of
a good lash curler, and, yes, I do curl after applying mascara. But that is another topic for another day.
Next, I apply jet-black
mascara to my lashes. Starting at the roots, I brush back and forth (with
force) to the tips. After zigzagging through my lashes, I brush them upwards with
several root to tip strokes.
After mascara, I sweep a
bronzer on my forehead, nose, brow bone, jaw, neck, and in the hollow of my
cheeks. I like to maintain a more natural texture to my skin, especially when
I’m not wearing a foundation, so I use a cream product when bronzing. NARS Multiple
in Palm Beach is my go to product for glowing, sun-kissed skin.
Lastly, I swipe on a
little lip gloss in a natural, neutral color. Currently, my go to glosses are
NARS Sweet Revenge lip gloss and MAC Prrr Tinted LipGlass.
The whole routine takes me
about 5 minutes and is well worth the effort. My husband doesn’t have to fake
telling me how pretty I look and I can walk to the mailbox with confidence. Wink,
