Daily Makeup Routine

I get many compliments on my make-up or lack there of. My whole life I've been blessed/cursed with freckles.  Growing up I hated them, even going as far to scrub my face three times daily thinking they would "Fade" away.. Lately I've learned to embrace them. They are not going away, and hey just think if they connect, I'll have the best tan in town!  I thought I would share with you my daily makeup routine! I am very picky about what I put on my skin, so unless I have a blemish I NEVER use concealer and to be honest only own sample packets from Sephora!!  (Please excuse the quality of the photo's until I get a more professional camera!!)


My makeup if very basic for a daily wear.  
Base powder/Bronzer:  Benefit's Too Faced 
Blush: Benefit's Fine One One
Mascara: Benefit Bad Gal Lash
Eye Shadow: Urban Decay Naked Basics Pallet
(can you tell I'm a Benefit Junkie)

Always start with a clean, dry face. 


First I apply Too Faced- Chocolate Soleil powder to entire face. Use powder brush and be sure to blow excess powder off before applying.
Isn't my brush holder the cutest from Target


I'm literally hooked on Benefits Fine One One after reading about it in a magazine!
Simply start at apple of cheek bone and swipe up towards end of eyebrow you will get a strip of the three different color's: a brightener, a color, and a contour blended all together makes this great blush! Rub with finger upward toward brow until you get desired color
(directions say you can apply to lips too, but I'll stick to my lipsticks for that!)

Next apply two-three coats of mascara to each eye. I prefer Benefit Bad Gal Lash because of the big barrel for the brush. I am terrified of using a eyelash curler (I can't even put drops in my eyes and you want me to put the contraption near my face!!)  so the bigger barrel curls my lashes!
I use Naked 2- third one from right

Lastly I add some neutral eye shadow from my Naked pallet and there you have it.. I told you I like to go the natural look during the week :o) 


Hope you enjoyed!
