I got my first tube of liquid eyeshadow and mascara nearly fifteen years ago. They were tucked unassumingly in my Easter basket, leaving me speechless before Sunday church. I remember leaning over the bathroom counter with my mouth wide open as the mascara wand clumsily marked up my eyelids again.
Now, fifteen years and a graduation from pure Tom Boy life later, I'm much more skilled at applying my mascara, but still learning that make-up is fun. In the last few months I've acquired three things that help my daily make-up routine go from basic to beautiful.
3. Matte Setting Spray(or an organic substitute Rosewater Facial Spray)One of my most terrible of habits is touching my face. I swear my make-up is off by noon because I can't keep my hands to myself -or at least away from my face. This spray has stopped me in my tracks. There's nothing linking the lack of touching to this spray, but knowing that my make-up is extra-protected from the elements helps me to keep off. Add to that fact that this spray stops the shiny look of late afternoon and we have ourselves a must.
I refuse to spend an arm and a leg on my make-up. Outside of my Naked make-up palettes, all my product is drugstore variety. I believe in convenience so I don't miss what can't be purchased at Target or CVS.
