When you’re going to maintain a tube of lipstick in your desk so you may contact up earlier than video calls, then it is best to in all probability additionally keep in mind to test your tooth for lipstick earlier than you begin mentioned video name! — and that, my pal, is your day by day make-up recommendation from the digital beauty-loving sister you by no means needed however ended up with anyway, ha ha ha! 😹
The opposite day at work, we have been speaking about make-up, and one in every of my coworkers talked about that when she was rising up her mother was at all times dressed to the nines earlier than she left the home, even when she was simply going to the grocery retailer. She mentioned her mother would at all times drop these nuggets of magnificence recommendation, like “By no means go outdoors along with your curlers on,” and “At all times placed on lipstick earlier than you allow the home.” This, after all, blew my thoughts, as a result of once I was a tween and teenage, I obtained all my recommendation from “Seventeen” journal… I believe once I was about eight my mother advised me to place some lotion on my legs earlier than I went outdoors to play, and that was the extent of my magnificence training at house.
What kind of magnificence recommendation do you keep in mind your mother providing you with?
Talking of make-up, I attempted a pair extra issues which are new to me from the Ipsy field — an affordable $8 (!) eye makeup primer from an indie, cruelty-free brand called M2U NYC. The model is just like e.l.f. in pricing and elegance.
The primer has the identical texture and end as City Decay’s eye primer, and whereas I like how gentle it feels on my lids and the way it blends into my pores and skin, I’m not blown away by it. I do see just a little little bit of creasing towards the tip of the day once I put on it with the Vizart Petite Professional Un Palette.
I additionally tried an eyeliner from the Sugar Rush Line, which is Tarte’s new-ish sister line. Easy on the Eyes is a twist-up gel pencil with a built-in sharpener on the opposite finish. I just like the wealthy black coloration and the way rapidly it dries (lower than a minute!), however I discover that the tip isn’t skinny sufficient to actually attain close to the bottom of my lashes.
Earlier than I head out, one last item (it’s hair associated): I preserve seeing these cute scrunchies with what appears to be a long scarf attached to them, so while you put your hair up, it seems to be such as you tied a shawl in it… I actually need this one!
