Selecting my outfit and make-up for the day/evening/event.
So much fun experimenting with what I’ll be wearing, especially if I think layered products will be a part of the fun (I like to layer colors).

Eyeshadow, but I also love applying highlighter and things like the Hourglass Light powders, because I like anything ‘shiny’.

Putting on lipstick, definitely. I love pondering over which lip color to wear! Blush comes next, because I almost always make it a point to match my lips and cheeks. I also love doing my eyebrows cos it impacts my overall appearance the most!

…the newest addition (and favorite) to my beauty routine is definitely finishing off my whole face with Guerlain MΓ©tΓ©orites Voyage in Mythic, though. Can’t wait to get loose pearls next!

Ooh – it’s a tie between lipstick and eyeliner. I love both, but at a pinch I’d have to say lipstick.

Especially if it’s a really, wonderfully bright one. Bright and bold lipstick makes me feel so great πŸ™‚

I love plucking my eyebrows. I think it’s a holdout from when I had a bout of trichotillomania in middle school… Getting my foundation/concealer/powder just right is also really satisfying. It takes a while to make skin look flawless but it’s worth it!

I think applying/layering lip colors might be my favorite part. I used to enjoy blending eyeshadows, but my eyes have gotten so sensitive and watery, making my eyeshadow patchy even before I finish applying it. It’s frustrating. πŸ™

Picking out the products I’m going to wear, especially when it’s part of an outfit. And then applying it, of course. =)

My night-time cleansing routine. I have found products that I love using, smell really good and make my skin velvet soft (Nubian Heritage’s African Black Soap, rosewater, Badger Damascus Rose Beauty Balm…).
Also, picking and applying perfume!
It all makes me feel like I’m worth a million πŸ˜€

Lipstick!!! I’m such a lipstick addict. :O

Sometimes, blush/highlighter because I am fascinated by those products and the whole process of contour/highlight etc., but generally, lipstick is my bag.

Buffing out my foundation, applying my evening serum & cream (as then I have time to massage them in) and applying lip gloss/balm (lipstick is a lot of work, lol).

It’s either eyeshadow (my big makeup love) or applying an amazing foundation and seeing my face go from splotchy to absolutely flawless (not all foundations do this, of course, though my new-ish IT Bye Bye Redness “treatment” does and it blows me away every single time I use it).

oh if it is about makeup, then i love everything! but i answered the opposite question of you with opposite answer yesterday so for me, it’s pretty much about the same question but asked in a different way XD

Applying blush! I always save it for last (just before the translucent powder on my T-zone). It’s so subtle but just transforms your face completely – both the colour you choose and the way you apply it. I also love moisturising my skin at night – applying a thick layer and massaging it into the driest areas.

Applying my lip gloss. Gloss is always the final step in my routine. It’s my way of saving the best for last. Once I put on my gloss, I instantly feel polished and sexy. I’d never go without it.

Covering up my horrific purple dark circles and watching my face look more alive than dead as the circles disappear under my multilayer concealer routine.

I absolutely love doing my eyes. They’re different everyday since I love bright and fun colors. Plus I have so much makeup with being am artist myself and will get a lot of compliments. Makeup is my passion and I just have so much fun with it. The best feeling for me is knowing how pretty and confident my clients are when they look in that mirror when I am finished with their look. That puts a smile on my face everytime. πŸ™‚

I love putting on blush and lip products. Also, I love putting on lotion or body butter – I know it’s weird, some people hate it :).

Merry Christmas! πŸ™‚ My favourite part will come into 5 hours: it comes when I arrive at home after the night shift and I start with my cleansing routine applying all my favourite product. Night cream, eye cream, serum. It gives to me a cocoon sensation!

Applying and blending my eyeshadows and mascara. I also love making and using body exfoliators from natural products and oils, especially during the winter.

Just the thought of putting makeup in the morning gets me out of bed excited, especially now I have a few more colors to choose from:)

Probably patting on and blending eyeshadow, everything else is quite monotonous by now! But there’s something satisfying about smoking out your eyes and finishing with mascara πŸ™‚
