Keeping it Simple in 2010 (Applying the K.I.S.S. Method)
First off the K.I.S.S. Method has always stuck with me since the 6th grade. Shouts out to Mr. Bates my 6th grade teacher who told all of us to Keep it simple stupid when it came to our Arithmetic and learning our division but on to the real meaning of this blog post.
I just wanted to share with you guys that this year in 2010 I wanted to keep my makeup simple. I'm all for the full blown made up eyes but sometimes less is more. I'm not knocking anyone who desires to wear full made up eyes. I just wanted to go a simpler route this year. Not really sure how long it's going to last but it's just something that I thought would work for me and for those who don't wish to wear full made up faces all the time.
I use two different foundations on my face. I have the Maybeline Dream Matte Mouse foundation in a number 2. I thought originally it was my shade but it wasn't so instead of trashing it I just use it to even out all of uneven spots in my face. I rub it on my full eye, top of the lid and underneath to make my eyes stand out. It's a great concealer, and will be great for hiding those hairs that you haven't removed from you eyebrows between shape-ups. I then used Maybeline Dream Liquid Mousse air brush finish liquid foundation in a number 3 when I say that I love this product I ♥♥'z it!! It gives my face a very smooth finish. I used an eyebrow pencil for my eyebrows Wild and Crazy in Chocolate Fudge. I followed all of the steps in Fabulous Eyebrows: How to fill in your eyebrows << Check it out. I use liquid eyeliner that I purchased from the beauty supply store and I lined the top lid of my eye only. I put on mascara (Maybelline Great Lash in the Pink and Green tube..I don't know why but this is the best mascara ever to me. I've tried others but this one is by far the best). I always apply mascara to my eyelashes as opposed to my band lashes, that way I can reuse them. I then used a angle brush (an applicator brush will work as well) to apply the shadow (wild and crazy silver eyeshadow;3149 Echo) to my lower lid. Any color shadow that you choose is fine. After this is done I applied my lashes. I usually go back with my Maybeline Matte Mouse and clean up any loose powder. I apply a little bit of concealer as well to make sure my eyes stand out.
The eyelashes that I purchased are found at the hair store. I love the lashes in the blue case that are like $1.99 The ones that I am wearing is the #80. I love them! They are black, full, and long!
Excuse the hair but I usually style my hair after I do my make-up. Giggles.
That's more like it!
You can find these products at your local shopping stores like Wal-mart and Target or even at the beauty supply stores or even online at :
***Note the lashes are just an example of what they actually look like. The lashes that I purchased are made of 100% Human Hair and the lashes pictured above are synthetic. ***
