[life] My 10 Step Makeup Routine

I'm nosy.

There, I said it.

My favorite kind of videos on YouTube are one of two things: about cruising, or life routines. You know the ones... makeup routine, morning/evening routine, skin care routine, etc. I just like taking a glimpse into other people's lives in any form or matter to see how THEY do things. Not that it matters, I'm just interested.

That brings me to my post today. Make-up! I'm not a huge make-up wearer in the sense that I cake it on. I have oily skin, so most of it comes off by the end of the day. But I like to play with it and if I made more money and/or lived closer to an Ulta, I'd be in trouble. So I mainly wear products that you can get from Wal-Mart with the exception of a few things.

I call it my "10 step" makeup routine because there are 10 products I use. It usually takes me about 7-10 minutes to apply my makeup, based on my attention span and if the dogs are being needy at the time :) Like I said, I have oily skin, and my skin tone is olive, so I usually gravitate towards beige/honey face tones and coral for the cheeks/lips. My favorite eye shadows are neutrals with some sparkle!
