Happy Monday, lovely ladies! Awards season is upon us! Did anyone catch movies' biggest night yesterday evening? I always love seeing what the ladies are wearing, and how they do their hair! not gonna lie, watching those things makes me with I could be as glamorous as them. But at the same time, I also don't mind my life, either ;)
The thing I am jealous of, though, is their flawless and red-carpet ready makeup that they get done by professionals. While I'm no makeup guru, I definitely love looking put together and enhancing my better features. Taking awards season as an inspiration, I've decided to put more effort into my makeup in the mornings, rather than doing my 'bare minimum' routine. It really makes a difference on how I feel during the day, making me feel like maybe I could be on the red carpet ;) I thought I'd share this new routine with you guys!
Let's start off with my "normal" routine! I first put on some very light foundation (I don't like thick foundation! It looks bad on my skin). Then I curl my lashes and add on a coat or two of mascara.
Above is my very basic makeup look. To amp up the look, I love to add more coats of mascara to make my eyes pop! Maybe this is just me, but I CANNOT put on mascara without getting it all over my eyelids. I've even gotten chunks on my nose a few times! I am a little clumsy, haha. Luckily I've incorporated a new product into my beauty routine-- Q-tips Precision Tips. This product is available at drugstores nationwide. What makes this the ultimate beauty tool? It features tapered ends that make it easy to achieve a detailed look, making it easy to fix makeup mistakes, touch up nail polish, lipstick, and so on!
I love that Q-tips Precision Tips are gentle and soft to use on delicate areas of my face, including around the eyes. It makes cleaning off the mascara chunks off of my face ten times easier! ;) After the mascara, I add some eyeshadow onto my lids. I am obsessed with gold/metallic colors!! I could never pull of pink or blue or anything like that, but I love wearing neutral tones. It makes me feel more natural looking, yet the shadow makes me feel prettier. Q-tips Precision Tips are made with 100% pure cotton for soft and gentle use. It's an affordable alternative to expensive makeup brushes that offers a clean and fresh application every time! You can even use it to apply eye shadow.
I've also been putting on lipstick more! I can't do bright reds, but I do love pink/orange shades. Lipstick is a must for any red carpet ready look! I also love adding a little cat-eye with my eyeliner!
So there you go! Q-tips Precision Tips are extremely helpful in my beauty routine! Not only that, but the swabs are biodegradable when composted, they are disposable, the paper sticks are sourced from sustainable forests, AND the packaging is recyclable!
