Goodies!

Those of you who know me personally or have been reading through my earlier blog posts, know that i'm not a big make-up person. My stash consists of the bare essentials and I admit I don't know much about make-up application. In an attempt to sharpen my make-up skills and enhance my ultra conservative feminine side, I've been watching countless YouTube tutorials and reading numerous beauty blogs. Tomorrow I have a photo shoot scheduled and wanted to give a little oomph to my normally bare appearance. So, today I went to the cosmetic store and purchased some goodies. Here's what I got...

 1. My go to brand --> M.A.C
 2. Brow liner in "Stud". Initially went looking for "spiked" but what girl can resist a stud?
 3. Tinted Moisturizer for those casual days when heavy make-up isn't on my agenda. This has a hint of color, SPF 15 and moisturizer.
4. Foundation <--- First time trying this out. Hope i'm not overwhelmed.
5. Foundation brush


Wish me luck with the application now http://eemoticons.net

  2. SD! Love your blog! Good luck with your photo shoot! I have never used MAC. I use tinted moisturizer and Bobbi Brown Lips and Cheeks along with some eye liner and mascara. I don't have time to apply much nor the need to coat my face in product. I was able to get a makeup session at Bare Minerals and I was shocked at how much makeup I removed with my moist wipe.

    1. The foundation experience wasn't bad at all. I applied a lot less than what they did in the make-up store. It was light and gave my skin a flawless look. Will definitely do again when the need arises but for my everyday casual look I think i'll be rocking the tinted moisturizer.
