high maintenance?? me????
although most people who know me would classify me as a girly-girl, i'm nowhere near the level i would be if time and funds allowed.
i use a LOT of products if i have time in my day to pamper myself. i don't always have time to do every single step, but here is the routine for my face if i'm pulling out all the stops...
-wash with Philosophy's On a Clear Day
-exfoliate with Dr. Brandt's Microdermabrasion
-moisturize face with Philosophy's Hope in a Jar
-moisturize eyes with Lancome High Resolution Eye Collaser-5x
-apply Bliss Spiff Upper Lip
-apply blemish spot treatment (like Murad Acne Spot Treatment)
-tweeze brows with LaCross tweezers
-apply Smashbox Anti-shine to t-zone
-apply Urban Decay Primer Potion to eyelids
-apply Cargo One Base concealer under eyes, around nose and corners of the mouth, and on any blemishes
-apply Smashbox Photo-Op Under Eye Brightener
-apply Urban Decay Surreal Skin Mineral Foundation
-apply lightest eyeshadow shade with Flirt! Everywhere Brush Kit Eyeshadow Brush
-apply crease eyeshadow shade with Sephora Smudge Brush #14
-apply any additional colors with Sephora Smudge Brush #14, q-tip, or lip brush
-blend eye look together with Flirt! Everywhere Brush Kit Large Powder Brush
-line eyes with shadow or cream liner using Flirt! Everywhere Brush Kit Liner Brush, or using a pencil
-apply Lancome Cils Booster XL on lashes
-apply Diorshow Blackout mascara on lashes
-apply bronzer with Flirt! Everywhere Brush Kit Large Powder Brush
-apply blush with Flirt! Everywhere Brush Kit Blush Brush
-apply Bourjois Lip Stain
-apply lip gloss
that's exhausting just to read!! and that's not counting my hair routine, or doing my nails. but, in my defense, i can crank this routine out pretty quickly. i can be out the door in an hour with this face. well....maybe an hour and a half......
