As you guys know, I am not a beauty blogger. Or a fashion blogger. Duh, right? But I do sometimes like to consider my blog a "lifestyle blog with an emphasis on marriage" because while I'm very passionate about marriage and it's something I blog about a lot, there are other things I like to blog about too.
However, Helene of Helene in Between is not a beauty blogger either and she recently wrote a post about her daily makeup routine using pictures and text, not video. Of course she posted a video about it later but that's neither here nor there. After seeing her post, I started thinking again about posting my own makeup routine.
Lastly, when I got my most resent voxbox from influenster and it was a Maybelline box, I knew I had to do this post!
So let's get on to the routine, shall we?
e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in St. Lucia. I use the e.l.f. Angled Blush Brush to swipe the bronzer under my cheek bones, along my jaw line, across the top of my forehead, and down each side of my nose. Then I use the same brush to apply the blush to the apples of my cheeks. Then I use the e.l.f Complexion Brush that I mentioned earlier to blend everything in.
Maybelline's Brow Drama Promenade Crayon that I got from Influenster to review. I love how easy it is to just swipe it over your eye brows a few times to the desired thickness. The only problem is you can't really sharpen it. You aren't really supposed to need to because you can twist the bottom to make more come out, but the point gets dull pretty quickly and then I don't know what to do.
e.l.f. eyelash curler and put on a few coats of Maybelline New York Great Lash Big Washable Mascara in blackest black. I've used this mascara ever since I started wearing mascara and I love it! I've tried a few others including non drug store brands like Mary Kay and I just like the Maybelline Great Lash so much better!
Maybelline New York Colorsensational Lip Liner. I don't know what color I use. Then I use Younique Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain in Shy. Honestly, I don't think this lip stain stays as long as other lip stains I've used. BUT it doesn't dry out my lips like other lip stains have. And it definitely stays longer than regular lip stick. So it's a pretty good trade off.
