How to do a Soft and Natural Makeup Look

I never realized how many beauty products I use daily until I started listing the details!
I usually do soft and neutral looks, its my everyday.  Today I have a job interview so I spent a little extra time and added some lashes.

This may look like a simple look but just take a peep at my list and you'll see its actually a lot of
product! 



Here are the product details for this look!


MaryKay CC Cream: Medium/Deep
Maybelline FitMe Concealer #25 Medium
L'Oreal Paris True Match Mineral Powder Buff Beige

Eyeshadows:
As a base I used MAC Painterly
Used all of the shades in the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

MaryKay Gel Eyeliner Black
NYX Cosmetics Eyeliner Pencil 818 Dark Brown
 CALA Eyelashes #503
Duo Eyelash Adhesive Clear
went over the lash line with Wet and Wild Mega Liner Liquid Eyeliner in Black

Eyebrows:
I just fill them in with eyeshadow.  I use Faint from the Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette.
Set with MaryKay eyebrow gel in clear.

Blush:
NYX Baked Blush BBL08 Ignite/Passion

Slight contour with MaryKay Bronzing Powder in Medium/Dark

Lips:
These are 99 cent store brands that I purchased years ago! They are no longer in production.
Personi USA Lipliner Mauve Sand
Personi USA Lipstick Vanilla Bean

I set my makeup with the E.L.F. Make up mist and set.

Hair:
These are second day curls using the Hot Tools Cone Wand! I love this curling iron because I can use the same curls for days!

I used Garnier Fructis Sleek&Shine Anti Frizz Serum to tame my frizz, give me shine and it gives my hair a nice citrus smell.

I also used a little bit of the Garnier Fructis Styles Pure Clear Paste to tame the frizz.


Other body products used today were:
Dove Go Sleeves  Fragrance Free Deodorant
Victoria's Secret Sexy Little Things Noir Tease Body Mist and Lotion.

The top is an oldie from Forever 21.

My Daily Skincare Routine! MaryKay: TimeWise Miracle Set

I thought it was about time I invested in a good skin care regimen! It's important to start as early as possible to develop good skin care habits.  I unfortunately did not.  I did follow the one cardinal rule throughout most of my 20's. Don't sleep in your makeup!  That was my one rule.  I would always try my best to wash my face off before going to bed.  But now that I exited the roaring twenties and now thirty flirty and thriving I feel its mandatory to include more steps in the skin care routine.   I purchased the TimeWise Miracle Set for Oily Skin after attending a skin care class where I was able to sample all the products.  I fell in love with the moisturizer!  It leaves my skin feeling so incredibly smooth without feeling any greasiness at all!  I have very oily skin, like nasty oily you could fry an egg with my excess oil!  So I hate it when products are super oily or greasy.  The TimeWise Miracle set includes a foaming face wash that has light exfoliants, the moisturizer which is incredible!!! and an spf 35 suncreen day solution and a night time repair solution.  I have been using this product for about 6 weeks now and I am amazed at how smooth my skin feels! At $90 for the complete set I feel like I have made a good investment! I am in love with the products and they have lasted me a long while.  I started using the product the first week of April, I am following the daily routine application, it is now the first week of June and I still have plenty of product.  If you are looking for a great skin care system for someone in their late 20s or early 30's  I would definately reccomend this product.  You can find the link for purchase on my website or if you live in Los Angeles you can contact me for a free sample at luxuriousmakeup@yahoo.com
