IFB Project #16: Morning Makeup Routine

If you ever meet me and we spend a few days together, you would quickly find out I am NOT a morning person. I wish I was, seriously. I'm so jealous of those people who wake up singing and skip out of their homes with an ear to ear smile… I wish that was me. I literally have to drag myself out of bed. It's actually funny stuff to witness. I wake up feeling like a raccoon because of my dark eye circles and I feel rather pale.  After I brush my teeth and wash my face, my morning makeup routine is essential! I don't wear much makeup in the morning but some simple items such a moisturizer, concealer, mascara, and lip balm are a must. I like to walk out the door looking like I'm alive. I usually welcome the real world after about an hour or 2 of being awake.

    I loved this post and the idea to submit as well. I am a full make up kinda girl in the morning. I HATE morning’s and need my coffee, speace and online time to fully comprehend my surroundings!

    Cool post idea! I’m not really a morning make-up person, I just get up and go, but I love playing with different looks when I go out to dinner with friends, or out to other events. I’m thinking a video tutorial for this one!

    I don’t even go to the grocery store with out using these make-up essentials:
    concealor, full coverage pressed powder, blush, lip liner, brow pencils, eye liner, waterproof mascara and lipstick.
    For special events I start with liquid foundation. All products are from Mary Kay except the Dual Finish powder from Lancome.

    I always make sure to use a good primer!! My makeup stays on ALL DAY that way without any shine or extra touch-ups! I also make sure to have a really great mascara and moisturizer!

    I hope I get my new camera charger soon, I realllly want to film this!
    My main objective in the morning is concealing under eye circles. (Lol honestly concealing under eye circles is more like my obsession) After that I throw some translucent powder on my t-zone, add lipstick and winged eyeliner. done. If I’m feeling really “blah”, I just smudge on some black pencil and crawl out of the house. 😛 I’m not much of a morning person either.

    I actually posted something along these lines a while ago, am I allowed to submit an old post?
