These 2 words together kind of crack me up. It's our way of saying "hey... I wanna look like I don't have to do anything to look this good, so what steps do I take to look like I didn't take any steps?"
Needless to say... I can dig it.
Tonight is FINALLY the long awaited premier of the final Hunger Games chapter.. The Mockingjay Part 2 (screaming fan girl over here!) And of course, I, like I have been every year since the beginning, and with Twilight franchise before that, and Harry Potter before that.. will be sitting anxiously in my seat snacking on my sour candies. Holla for some Sour Skittles! But first... I needed to naturally paint my face. Now, most ladies do their hair and outfit before they do these types of posts; but I just got out of the shower so you're getting the real natural version :) I apologize for the terrible bathroom lighting. Let us begin.
Concealer: Hard Candy Glamoflauge in light
Powder: Femme Couture Mineral Effects in Neutral
Brows: L'oreal Brow Stylist Sculpture in Blonde
Mascara: WEt and Wild MegaProtein in black
Bronzer: Bare Minerals in Warmth
Lipstain: NYC Smooch Proof Lip Stain in Persistent Pink
I alwasy start by taking my concealer and making two small dots under my eyes. If you are using Hard Candy also, take note that a little goes a longgggg way. I then make the typical clown triangles under my eyes, rubbing in the concealer by lightly dabbing with my fingers.
Next I take my face powder, put some in the lid of the container, and apply it all over in light circular strokes with my favorite brush, the Multi-tasker Sonia Kushak face brush!
Next was time to add a little life back into my face using my Warmth bronzer by Bare Minerals. I lightly brushed this on with my EcoTools large blush brush in circular motions.
I then take my brow pencil (which this specific blonde pencil is PERFECT for us blondes who want a less warm shade of blonde). For this look, I use small hair strokes, without outlining the outside of my brows since we're going for a more natural look here.
I then took my cheap Wet and Wild mascara and blinked a couple times on the wand... nothing too crazy. We're not trying to get that falsies lashes look here ladies.
See... subtle difference between the lashes with and without mascara! Next is time for the lips. I used my favorite lipstain, which I'm almost out of! Wahhh! I love that I don't have to worry about smearing or smudging with this stuff, and it's a perfect pink shade that adds a little life back into my complexion!
Bow Chicka Wow Wow! All set and ready to go! Not too much, not too little... just enough to not look like a cast member of The Walking Dead, or to here what we ladies always love when we go a day without makeup... "Are you sick?" .... you all know it's true. Every time. I then threw on my favorite sweatshirt, combed my hair since it was completely dry finally, and was on my way! I didn't do any hair styling since I am in the middle of growing out this mane and heat styling is a no-no during this phase. Makes for a simple night of going out!
