my everyday make-up

I'm not a make-up enthusiast and I don't have perfect skin, but I make it a point to leave the house with a presentable to somewhat bearable face. Who knows who I will run into throughout the day, right? I'm very low maintenance when it comes to beauty products. I'm not picky. I usually just go for whatever's available or steal from my mom's or my sister's stash.

My make-up routine is really simple and natural, and takes less than five minutes to apply. This is my go-to look that, in my opinion, can take me from day to night. I'm not a beauty expert or anything, but in my case, I always concentrate on my eyes, so I like to go heavy on mascara and then put a bit of black eyeliner on the crease of my lower eyelid. I would top everything off with bronzer on my cheeks to enhance my skin tone and get me that sun-kissed look. I also like to go nude... on my lips!

For the curious, my "ingredients" include the following: Maybelline New York Clear Smooth Aqua gel foundation, Maybelline New York Clear Smooth Shine Free face powder, The Body Shop Eye Definer Shade in black, Maybelline New York The Magnum Volum' Express waterproof mascara, The Body Shop Brush On Bronze, and Marks & Spencer Shea Nut lip butter.

And this is as close as I will ever get to a beauty post.
