Unless it’s a more dramatic lip, then I choose eyeshadows first, then lip color, and then blush color. If I go for a dramatic lip, then I usually pick the lip color first and coordinate the rest around it. Darker eyeshadow means a lighter lip color, and it might be warm to match warm eyeshadow, or it might be slightly warm to warm up a really cool-toned look.

Warm shortly after I started wearing foundation (which was maybe a year after I started wearing makeup). I’ve always really liked myself in warmer shades like golds, coppers, bronzes – so I was already naturally inclined to a lot of the supposedly flattering colors on me. But I will wear whatever I like, and sometimes a color may be more flattering than others. (I think I look best in natural makeup, but it doesn’t stop me from wearing something really bright!)

It’s not part of my day-to-day, core routine, as in “can’t not do it,” because frankly, I hate exercising. I wish I was one of those people who had to run in order to relax. I wish I was more prone to exercise than going to Starbucks. (Side note: instilling a desire for physical activity in your young one from the get-go will help them so much more in adulthood!!) I do consider eating healthy (or healthier) part of my every day beauty routine. It doesn’t mean I starve myself or I only eat salads; but it means I know I can’t eat macaroni and cheese everyday or have a giant carrot cake all to myself. It means if I want a sliver of birthday cake, I aim for a lower calorie intake on my meals for the day. I’ve struggled with weight my entire life, and I’m about 15 pounds heavier than I’d like to be, so I have been trying to make lifestyle changes in the past few months. I still try and want to be more active, but some days are better than others.
