Make-up and Music Love ♥

Today I am mildly obsessed with this make up. I will start by saying that I am not a huge make up person. It takes extra time, it makes my eyes hurt, and I think I'm pretty without it. But when I do wear make up, I try to do it right.

What I love about her make up:
  • Her complexion is flawless. I'm sure that is largely due to Photoshop, but it's amazing none-the-less.
  • Dark eyebrows! I think far too many women are scared of wearing dark eyebrows. The really help frame your eyes, and I am yet to see someone that doesn't look lovely with dark eyebrows.
  • Easy on the eyes,  tempting lips. This is a style I love lately, because a lot of eyeshadow really hurts my eyes, and bright lips are so fun!
  • Cat eyes make your eyelashes look so long and luscious. She manages to wear a lot of eyeliner, and still look clean, because she left the bottom very light. Ladies, thick eyeliner all the way around your eye is not pretty. It makes your eyes look smaller, and distracts from how pretty they are!
Here are some products I use for my base, along with the products I would use for the look she is wearing!
Boots7 Intelligent Balance Mousse Foundation
I swear by this stuff!!! It gives unbelievable coverage with out leaving your skin shiny, or oily.
Best part? It's only $13 at Target or Ulta.

Tarte EmphasEYES Aqua-Gel Eyeliner
This is my biggest make-up splurge. Because I have sensitive eyes, I have to have an all natural hypo-allergenic eyeliner. This stuff goes on so smooth, and doesn't budge. LOVE IT!
Only downside: It costs $18.

Sephora Collection Almost Nude Pallet
I love Sephora's eyeshadows. 'Nuff said.

Urban Decay Lip Envy Lip Stain
When it comes to lip color, I prefer to use lip stains. That way I can kiss my boy, eat food, and still look fabulous. =)

In parting I want to leave you with a song that I'm playing on a loop!

Have a perfect day!
