Bronzer Bunny was up on the twitterland last night talking about how she wanted to try doing something new called #14daysofmakeup. It’s really not complicated at all – you just take a photo of the makeup you wear for 14 days. It sounded really easy, but as I agreed, I realized I had no makeup on! Ooops! Either way, I thought it would be fun to participate in the #14daysofmakeup. You can follow her on instagram as well.
So it’s going to start with this adorable Louis Vuitton cosmetic pouch. I have already started incorporating this into my daily routine by putting my everyday basics in there. I’ve also tossed in a few items I want to show more love. I’ll try not to include it in every post, but damnit if it’s not adorable. I love that I’ve found a way to use it and make me smile everyday. I am pretty sure you can still find it on the Louis Vuitton web site if you are interested (I believe stores no longer carry it).
So here’s the meaty part. The actual makeup. Today was a great day to start because I wore lots of basics that I won’t have to post about every day. Some of my everyday essentials are the Armani Fluid Primer, Master Corrector in 1, Bobbi Brown under eye brightener, Nars Pro Prime, MAC Painterly paint pot, Glo Minerals under eye primer and Glo Minerals oil-free concealer. A new staple I’ve added is the Bite Beauty Lip Primer. It smells yummy, helps mute my lips a smidge & makes my lips pucker ready. I highly doubt those will change over the 14 days so I probably won’t mention them much beyond this.
Next a few things I switch up on the daily. First from Bobbi Brown I used the Telluride & Santa Barbra Illuminating bronzers. I love both but don’t reach for them enough. Those will rotate through. I love Trish McEvoy 24 hour smokey quartz… particularly under the eye. It doesn’t budge and looks sexy and undone… yet so done. Love. I am also trying to use up my Armani CC in 1. Hopefully that goes away soon so I can move on with my life and Dr Perricone. Also I use the Bobbi Brown Scotch eyeliner and the Anastasia Brow Wiz practically everyday, but I do rotate those through every now and then. And last is my Bobbi Brown Smokey Mascara which I LOVE and the Bite Beauty lipstick (rose in the photo). Oh and my Chanel Les Beige in 20 was used to set my makeup. Geez could I be any more high maintenance? Oh well.
