I love reading little tips and tricks about other ladies' beauty looks. It's always so fun to try something you haven't before! I recently picked up a couple products from L'Oreal via Albertson's, and had some fun figuring out my different makeup routines for specific events in my life.

I've mentioned this on my blog before, but for my beauty routine it is crucial that I really make my eyes pop, since I have small little Asian eyes D: haha, sad but true! It's definitely something I'm self conscious about. My local Albertson's had just the right products for me-- I purchased the Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara and the Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner, both by L'Oreal Paris. These products helped transform my look and give me the self confidence I needed! 

While I LOVE makeup, I honestly don't think I wear a whole lot. Justin always tells me how he can't tell the difference between my naked face and my made up face (I think he's just being nice;). I've seen other bloggers' beauty tutorials, and I can honestly say sometimes I am just shocked at how many layers of makeup they're putting on! So for girls out there like me who think that less can be more and want as few steps to a polished look as possible... this post is for you! :) 

My first look is my "natural beauty" look. It's super simple but if I'm in a rush to get out the door, this is my quick go-to!

1. Start with your naked face! I always make sure to moisturize before putting on makeup so my face doesn't get flakey. I have really dry skin!
2. I like to put on a little bit of foundation after I moisturize. It just barely coverups the little imperfections, but doesn't look cakey.
3. MASCARA! Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara keeps me looking awake and alive. Not like a zombie, lol.
4. Again, even more layers of Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara! I like it on my lashes thick.

So.. yeah, like I said, nothing too special but I feel presentable if I have to run errands or if I slept in!

Next up is my work look! I like going into work feeling a little more beautified, so I apply some cat eye action with the Lineur Intense Brush Tip Liquid Eyeliner. I also sometimes put on some blush and a little light pink lipstick as well!

And now for my third look... date night! I like doing a little something extra to feel pretty when we go out.

1. I add more Voluminous Million Lashes Mascara for an even more bold look that says, "the eyes have it!"
2. To amp up the ooh la la factor, I curl my eyelashes. Now I've heard that it's bad for your eyelashes to curl them after you've applied mascara, but I've been doing this for over a decade and my lashes are fine, sooo.....
3. Next, I do a little contouring and highlighting. I am NO expert at this and don't know what I'm doing half the time, but that's why I found a cheap contouring kit at the dollar store. I like to contour and highlight my cheeks just a touch for that special occasion look.
4. Last but not least I add a little more lipstick to make my tiny lips look existent. hehe ;)

I LOVE how much my eyes pop in this photo! The combination of the cat eye liner and the big, bold lashes makes me feel bright eyed and beautiful.

As we change seasons, I feel like I'm switching out some of my makeup, too! To keep organized, I split up all my eye makeup, all my lip colors, and all my face products into big ziplock bags and keep them in a drawer in our closet. That way, it's out of our way but everything is easy to find. Then I have my "regulars" makeup bag in our vanity so I can just whip it out each morning to do my makeup! If I ever want anything extra, I can just go to our closet and grab what I need!

Don't forget to stop by your local Albertson's to try out L'Oréal's great products!

What are your favorite ways to show off your eyes? Any fellow Asian sistas want to share their secret with me to help make my eyes pop even more? I'm all ears when it comes to my eyes! ;)
