I pride myself on having friends with a wide variety of personalities and tastes. And, It's important to surround yourself with people that help enhance your personality and enrich your life.... Basically, so that their good qualities rub off on you. My dear friend Amy is a hardworking medical professional, foodie and a loving dog mom. She has a busy schedule, so it's important that her makeup routine is quick, but will last all day.
Amy's morning makeup routine normally takes her between five and fifteen minutes. In that window of time, her priorities are to moisturize, conceal and fill in her brows. Anything else is just icing on the cake! To balance out her complexion, she applies Tarte's BB Tinted Primer in Light. To get a little more coverage, she applies a thin layer of Glo Minerals Pressed Base in Natural Medium. This combination can give light to full coverage and is great for sensitive skin types. Amy is a fan of simple, glittery washes of color across her eyelids. Some days it may be a subtle Champagne, like this E.L.F. eyeshadow in Celebrity, or if she's feeling a bit more bold, she'll reach for her Laura Mercier eyeshadow in Gilded Bronze. Either way, she always primes her lids with Urban Decay's Primer Potion in Sin, a soft pink, champagne tone. This keeps her eye look in place all day. I love how Amy has a mix of price points in her eye makeup collection. To help define her eyes and create a bit more drama at her lash line, she reaches for this Loreal Matte-Matic Eyeliner. Then she finishes her eye look with a few swipes of Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara for volume and length. Gorg!
When it's time to put a little color on her lippies, Amy's "go-to" nude is Urban Decay's Revolution lipstick in Naked. For a little more shine and moisture, she tops it with Buxom Lip Polish in Dolly. And when she wants to add a soft flush to her cheeks and a bronze glow to her complexion, she pairs the Beauty Counter blush in Tawny/ Whisper with the Beauty Counter Matte Bronzer. Thats complexion perfection that you don't have to feel bad about!
Have you ever tried any of Amy's favorite products? She and I are trying to make our makeup bags more "Green". If you're trying to shift your makeup bag to a bit more natural ingredients, what are your favorite products or lines? Please let us know in the comments below. Until next time friends!
