i've always been really interested in makeup, my mom used to buy those old-school urban decay special edition palettes that were like the size of a small textbook nd had like 30 random colors inside
so when the 2015-2016 instagram makeup trends came around (insane highlighter, brows, heavy eye looks) i was all about it lol...even though looking back it really did not suit my face ~BeaUtY~
nowadays i go very minimal, but i still like to have fun with my makeup so i'm typically wearing some type of subtle form of glitter on my eyes as an accent.
my routine is something like this:
-bareminerals foundation (and mineral veil if i feel i need the extra spf)
-lightly fill in brows w brow pencil and use colourpop tinted brow gel
-tonymoly panda dream eye brightener (the formula isnt my fav and it took me a while to learn how to use it but i'm using it up bc i cant return it)
-nars creamy concealer if i feel i need extra brightening under eyes/through midface (also not my fav formula but i'm using it)
-either no eyeliner or a gel liner lightly smudged along the lashline, sometimes i do a very muted cat eye liner with this, sometimes i do a liquid liner wing it just depends
-glittery gold shadow stick that i got from japanese brand dollywink like forever ago in inner corner, or i will use a shimmery shade from various palettes
-depending on where im going i will use covergirl waterproof mascara or tarte maneater (not my fav again lol why do i have so much makeup i dont like)
-nars multiple cream stick in orgasm on cheeks/as highlight/on cupids bow (a classic, looks so pretty on literally everyone and is so subtle and natural looking, plus nars' cream formula is the shit, it melts right into your skin)
-mac fixplus again
that seems like a LOT ik but if you could see what my makeup routine used to look like...plus it doesnt look like a lot on the face at all. it's not exactly no-makeup-makeup, but most people wouldn't guess how many products it took to create the look.
also, for anyone who likes glossier-type "natural pretty" brands, there are a lot of kbeauty brands who make more affordable dupes. just something to look into!
