Face-Time | Beauty Bag

A while ago, I asked you all what you wanted to see more of and the general consensus? Beauty. I've dabbled in a few makeup/skincare etc. related posts before, but normally I avoid that area as some days, nothing goes on my face except for moisturizer. 

Honesty hour: I forgot how to put on liquid eyeliner up until about a month ago.... shame. Oh, and most mornings, make-up is applied in the car. #g-l-a-m-o-r-o-u-s

As I'm always on the run from school, sailing, working, gym, etc. makeup can become quite a hassle. Much as I wish I could wear no makeup for the rest of my life, that wish isn't going to come true unless some real Disney magic is worked on moi. Above are the products I rotate through the most that can deliver what I call my "full face" to a barely there look that actually has, barely nothing there. 

As I don't think any of you lovely fellows out there need help in regards to a barely there look, I've included what is a middle ground between the two looks. For an example, this is what you see in blog photos, and so forth. Coolio? Awesome. Keep reading. 

See the rest of my beauty posts here.


FACE: Glossier moisturizer | Glossier skin tint | Kat Von D bronzer 

- Most days I either wear the Glossier lotion or just a light oil 

- Followed by the Glossier skin tint. If my skin is oily that day or I need more coverage, I'll go on with one of the CoverFX products

- To bring back a glow, Kat Von D bronzer is the best. 

EYES: Maybeline mascara | Maybelline brow gel (not pictured)

- First, I clean up my brows. Truth be told, I only do this step when I have extra time or know I need to "clean-up" a little more. (;

- A swipe of mascara does the trick. For those who are wondering, I only wear eyeliner when I'm going to a real fancy-shmancy event, otherwise I just curl my lashes and follow with mascara.

LIPS: Marc Jacobs lip color 

- My holy grail!! I haven't used anything else for the past two years. Golden.
