GET YOUR FACE ON!!

Beth from The Stories From A to Z asked if I would join in on her GET YOUR FACE ON party! So here I am, and here we go!
Put your shades on ladies

and let's take a closer look shall we?....
I first start off by washing my face with water and applying 4-5 drops of grapeseed oil.

I use a liquid eye liner. I like the look of a powder/cream/or pencil better, but the liquid is faster and I like faster.

Then I take my mascaras...(ya, I put two on). I love the Covergirl LashBlastLength because it seperates and lengthens my lashes, but then they look too skinny, so I take my GreatLash and thicken it up.
LASHES ON...
Then I pull out my mineral foundation powder. (I'll be doing a review soon on my favorite mineral makeup!) I use it as a concealer on the flawed skin (just a thicker coat on the zits and red splotches) and then I go over my entire face for the foundation.
I have loose powder bronzer I use (Maybelline Mineral POWER Bronzer...LOVE this stuff) Just underline your cheekbones with it. Use a smaller brush for this and draw the line from the corner of your smile-line to your hair-line at the top of your ear.
SMOKEY EYES: Let's do some dramatic eyes. You can do this in various shades, but I'll be doing the classic Smoke color. Cover your lids dark, You can slightly open and close your eyes to see the natural crease line. Fill it all in DARK. (Basically giving yourself a black eye or cat eyes)
I KNOW THAT LOOKS TERRIFYING!

Then I take the Smokey shadow and underline my bottom lid. Just use it to thicken up your bottom eyeliner. Start in the outer-corner where your shadow is already looking like cat eyes. And blend under your eyes.
Then I take either my pinky or ring finger (your gentle fingers) and blend all the edges of your eyeshadownow it's not so defined... (or scary)

Straighter my hair/add accessories... DONE.
Well that was fun! Anyone else want to join in on the fun?

From Wives and Daughter's: "I like your face" and from me: "I miss your face". To answer you ? I get my face on very quickly these days, it's almost like a contest, but we use the same mascara (pink and green) only I only use it. xxxooo T
