You’re Beautiful Without all that makeup

“You are beautiful without all that makeup.” How many times have you heard someone say this? I understand the intention behind that statement. It’s meant to tell you that you can feel confident without wearing makeup. (Or worse, sometimes it’s a back handed compliment meant to shame you for making the choice to wear makeup) Yes, I can feel confident without makeup. However, I love wearing it. I love the creativity it brings to my day. I love all the beautiful colors. I love how it makes me feel. Somehow we have confused wearing makeup with wanting to hide who we are. A woman who wears makeup is NO less confident then the woman who doesn’t. It’s one way she expresses herself, and I would venture to say, you are actually getting to see more of who she really is when she has her face done. 

Makeup is NOT a mask. 
Makeup is art.
Makeup is passion.

Makeup is expression.

The Subtle Difference That Makes a Huge Difference

There’s nothing like a half face selfie to show off the power of makeup! In my case, I love showing how simple and subtle makeup can have a not so subtle effect. I love my Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation because I don’t feel like I’m wearing anything but to look at my skin it’s evened out and just looks refreshed and brighter. Adding something to the brows is also an essential for me when I do my makeup! It finishes the look and frames the eyes! Your brows don’t need to be perfectly made up, just a slight tint and grooming them a little makes a huge impact!

My product list for this look is:

  • Touch Glorious Primer
  • Touch Mineral Liquid Foundation (Chiffon)
  • Addiction Shadow Palette (number 3: shades Smitten, Flippant, Cheeky
  • Stiff Upper Lip Lip Stain (Shy)
  • Precision Brow Gel (Medium)
  • 3D Fiber Lashes+ (New formula)

Lucrative Lip Gloss Shades

I’ll admit it, I’m a lip gloss snob. I hate sticky lip gloss! The Lucrative Lip Gloss was the first thing I opened when I got my Younique starter kit and it’s been a love affair ever since. The super smooth formula is definitely not sticky, it’s super hydrating too. I love wearing it on it’s own or using it to switch things up by adding over top of any of the Precision Lip Liners, Lip Bon Bon Tinted Lip Balms or Opulence Lipsticks. They top off the look with just the right amount of shine!
