What is your favorite part of your beauty routine?

A part of me wants to say removing everything at the end of the night because there is something so lovely about freshly-cleaned skin… but my answer is actually doing my eye makeup. I feel like there’s just a lot of room to play there.

When I’m in the mood for it, I love doing eye makeup (shadow specifically) because it’s the most creative part of my beauty routine. However I do love cleansing my skin at the end of the night and this is something I do every day without fail, whereas eye makeup I probably do 3-5 times throughout the week.

It used to be applying lip product, but lately my lips have been changing and I’ve felt like I need to learn how to apply lipstick again. Ugh. The most enjoyable part of my routine now is probably putting on foundation and concealer, just to even everything out and feel better.

Putting on lipstick. I usually keep my eyes simple and wear a bold lip. Once I put on a red lip, I feel really good – stand up straighter, head held higher and walk with more confidence. I know that sounds silly, but it’s my reality.

Not silly at all! I’m the same way. Red lipstick is confidence.

Though I like putting on lipstick in general, I do not like the process of putting on a red lipstick. It’s a bit nerve-racking for me. Lol

Hmmm…it’s a tie. I love doing my eyeshadow. It’s the most creative part of my makeup routine. I also love going through my monster stash of lipsticks and deciding which one I want to wear. It’s like being a kid in a candy store!

Since it’s eye makeup, especially eyeshadow, that allows me to get super creative if I’m in that mindset, it would have to be doing my eye looks!
Second to that; at night, taking all that work OFF!

I always put my lipstick on last and that’s the final step where it all comes together, so ultimately that would be my favourite.

I do enjoy applying eyeshadow but I’ve got my glasses off for so much of my makeup routine that I don’t really get a chance to see the whole look until the very end. I know what it looks like close up in the mirror from 3 inches away but that’s not always accurate – blush intensity can trip me up! But yeah, right at the end when I put my glasses back on, take my hair out and swipe on that lippie makes me happy! 🙂

For Me, It’s 3 things. I love to experiment and enjoy putting on my concealer every time I do my makeup, my 2nd favorite is blush because I feel it ties/compliments whatever I look I may have that day and my last but not least favorite is most definitely highlight, although I have oily skin I LOVE my cheeks, eye inner corner & cupid’s bow to glow for the gods!

Mascara; it’s my final step so after the rest of my face and eye look – I’ll decide if I want big almost fake looking lashes or more soft fluffy lashes.

Eyeshadows for sure! I’m deliberately avoiding saying ‘eyes’ because eyeliner is the single most frustrating part of my routine. (I have really, really bad eyesight) Next up is powder, because I love how smooth my skin feels after powdering!

I think my AM and PM skin care bc it is so soothing. I also love the creativity of makeup application. In that area, I used to prefer eye makeup but now love it all.

I get a lot of satisfaction out of my skincare routine, but eyeshadow is where I get to play around the most and try new things.

Buying it! My mind functions like Nemo ? I forget what I already have at home in the midst of excitement when I spot a new color or shiny stuff glittering at me. Same with fashion. Nothing matches in my closet but I like it that way I fall for colors and own very few neutral pieces. I’m a great mess! But a extremely organized one. Lol!
