  4. Girlfriend, I am the queen of 10 minute makeup!

    – Olay sunscreen
    – 266 & MAC concrete in brows
    – curl lashes & one layer of whatever mascara is closest at hand
    – MAC Blushbaby blush
    – MAC concealer
    – Lip liner in Subculture (which I anticipate will soon be replaced by Cremestick liner) and Clear lipglass
    – a quick layer of whatever loose or pressed powder is close at hand

    I can also do this in 5 minutes if need be!

    Do you think we’ll be seeing our Matte2 and Mattene today? Please! Please! Please!

    • Nice! Filled in brows make ALL the difference, don’t they?

      Ohh, I hope so! I know they ship FedEx, and it’s always come pretty much overnight or 2-day. So whenever FedEx stops by your house, that’s when you can expect it (if it comes today). I think our FedEx doesn’t show up til late afternoon :( I’ve only had one or two shipments come overnight express or something, which is guaranteed by 10:30am!

    Moisturizer with sunscreen, cover up, MSF Natural in Medium, Blushbaby, wash of Naked Lunch on lids, Mascara X in black, and a lip gelee (the sheerness makes them basically fool-proof, I don’t even have to look in the mirror to apply). If I have a couple extra seconds, I do a quick crease color (I love Kid) and a brown eyeliner.
