I read a post yesterday on Hannah's blog that I found really inspiring -- a no makeup FOTD! I must admit that I've been a little camera shy lately, and before yesterday I would have never even dreamed of posting a picture of me completely bare faced on my blog! But then I thought, why the hell not?
Some ladies look absolutely stunning without makeup and others look like a completely different person... I am definitely the latter, but I don't think that's necessarily a bad thing. If you are fair like I am, with blonde eyelashes and thin eyebrows, then you too know the power of makeup!
I was going to wait a bit for my skin to clear up to do this post, but then I realized that would defeat the purpose. This is me baby... the good and the bad. I hope we can all start to love ourselves a little bit more everyday -- with and without makeup!
Click the pictures to enlarge -- you can look at them more like a slideshow this way!
MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15
This foundation is very pale and my face doesn't match the rest of the body -- but I'll fix that later! :)
Maybelline Under Eye Concealer Dark Circle Eraser in Fair
Although I continue to use this product, I'm not completely in love with it...
Anastasia Brow Wiz in Ash Blonde
Maybelline Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde
MAC Omega Eyeshadow
I think this step is one of the most transformative... eyebrows are soooooo important! I envy all you gals with full brows!
I have been growing mine out for over 7 months and this is as good as they are getting. They are shaped very differently from one another, so I do the best I can to make them match and then move on. Sisters, not twins <3
MAC Painterly Paint Pot
MAC Naked Lunch -- lid
MAC Malt -- crease
MAC Vanilla -- highlight
I wanted to go for an everyday look and this has been one of my favorites lately.
Maybelline Eye Studio Gel Liner in Black
Eyeliner makes such a huge impact on a look, but it is definitely the most time consuming -- at least it is for me.
Cover Girl Lash Blast Volume in Brown
This is probably the last time I will be using this mascara until I repurchase it... and sorry the picture is a bit fuzzy.
Benefit Hoola Bronzer
Real Techniques Blush Brush
I know this may look like a lot but it helps my face match the rest of my body... I wear SPF50 on my face when I'm outside so there is about a 2-3 shade difference I have to account for.
Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Dollface
Sorry the lighting keeps changing... the sun kept peeking out from behind the clouds.
MAC Angel Lipstick
Merle Norman Lipgoss in Gumdrop
I just thought it would be fun to show to the progression and how makeup transforms, step by step... hope you enjoyed!
