When I took all my makeup out of my bag, it looked like so much stuff! I really don't take a long time putting it on, though, and that's what I like most about my makeup routine. It takes me less than 5 minutes to get fully make upped(?!) I have really sensitive skin, so I buy Bobbi Brown for all my base products. I can really feel a difference between a drugstore foundation and Bobbi Brown. Yes, it is more expensive, but it lasts three times as long AND it doesn't make my skin act wonky.
As far as makeup routine goes, I start with my Cetaphil face cleanser and moisturizer. I have been searching for years for the perfect product, and I finally found it. I then put my corrector and concealer under my eyes, and add the concealer to any places that might need a touch up. The stick foundation goes on next. (I use my fingers to apply) The great thing about the stick is that it matches my skin tone perfectly and can be applied to my whole face or just a few touch up areas if I'm in a serious rush. Next comes (a little bit of) powder and the bronzer. (Both the super cheap kind from Target.)
I then do my eyes....I won a ton of Avon products from Sharon's blog a while back and absolutely love this eye shadow palette. For years, I would always have saggy eyeliner under my eyes and couldn't figure it out. I still haven't decided what it was, but this Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner is THE best. I thought it would take forever to put on (you have to use an eyeliner brush) but it doesn't, and, for me, it lasts so much longer than a stick. I'm not super picky when it comes to mascara, but I really like this Revlon kind.
I do a little bit of both, but do you splurge or save when it comes to your makeup? I'm always interested in hearing about new products, so if you have one that you can't live without, I'd love to hear about it!
