Up above, that’s a typical minimal makeup look for me. Here’s what I’m wearing…
Do I consider myself a makeup minimalist?
Generally, no, not really. I’m a product junkie through and through.
I mean, I usually sit down intending to do something quick, but it so often turns into a full face of makeup! Given any extra time at all, I will gladly keep playing with brushes and makeup until I am forced to stop.
Poor El Hub… He knows all too well that “I only need 5 minutes to get ready” is code for “See you in half an hour! Maybe. Probably not.”
Sure, there are times, like when I’m tired or just not in the mood, when I don’t wear any makeup at all or just do the bare minimum, like if I’m running out of the house at 8:52 p.m. to buy emergency gravy before Petco closes (it happens more often than you’d think) or when I’m traveling.
For me, my minimum usually involves brows, mascara, under-eye concealer, a little foundation, blush and gloss.
How about you? Do you consider yourself a makeup minimalist, or do you always go full-bore?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Good morning, my friend. How goes it? I’m waving a sleepy hello to you this morning.
It’s been quite warm here this week, so we’ve been sleeping with the windows open at night. It’s so nice to have a breeze circulating in the the room, but oh! — I’m payin’ the piper when the birds go cray-cray before dawn.
Don’t get me wrong, there are worse ways to wake up than birds singing… I just wish they’d start after my alarm, LOL!
Which reminds me, Carrot.
No, not the awesome veggie. It’s a new productivity app I just installed on my phone. Two apps, actually. There’s an alarm and a to-do list manager. Both of them have sassy A.I. personalities to keep you on task.
It’s like having a sassy assistant. If you don’t get your stuff done on time, Carrot gets mad and gives you attitude (Haha! Sounds like Tabs). From what I’ve read, the apps are pretty popular.
I guess they’re like tough love? I dunno… Gonna give them a try today, and I’ll let you know.
What’s shakin’ on your end of the keyboard? Happy hump day.
