Easy Peasy

I don't usually wear makeup. I wear mascara and some lipstick. However, it's not because I don't like makeup, it's because every time I try to apply makeup, I look like I got punched in the eye. I am not joking, I was once asked after taking 45 minutes to do a smoky eye if everything was OK at home. I was mortified and so ended the days of me doing a smoky eye without lots and lots of practice first. Then Laura Geller sent me a ridiculously insanely gorgeous makeup kit. It was like Christmas for the makeup inept. A brow pencil that fills in your brows literally in one click and swipe? YES PLEASE. PRAISE BABY JESUS IT'S SO EASY. Lipstick that moisturizes while it lasts for hours? WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY 23 YEARS OF LIFE?! Highlighter that works? Didn't even know what all you could do with highlighter until playing around with it. Laura killed it with these tools. It was..as I LOVE to say and Andrew loves to make fun of me for... easy peasy lemon squeezy.

So.. what did I do? Here is the list:
Eyebrow pencil: Exact in brunette
Highlighter: Exact
Lipstick: Exact
Mascara: Exact

All I did with the brow gel was twist and run through my brows. Little bit of higlighter above my brows, basic eyeshadow and mascara and viola! Done! Everything else had great instructions and didn't make me feel like a dummy applying it! It's pretty much idiot proof and a great little way to perk up my tired eyes after late nights of applying to jobs!

  3. Now I want to try the brow gel even more. That top and those glitter slip-ons are Gorgeous with a Capital G! Plus you know I love Denim Shorts. I agree with Tara that you are glowing. =)

    I am hosting a link-up myself tomorrow. I'd love for you to join and include a link back to my blog. Thanks a lot for the support. Happy Tuesday!! <3 Ada.

  4. I too am in the camp of the makeup inept. If you were to ever dare look at some of my old blog posts you might catch me in super bright turquoise eye makeup. Can anyone say train wreck?

    Bright, simple, makeup without really looking like you are wearing makeup is the only way to go. You look so fresh faced and adorable. I'm glad someone is making things simple for those of us who just can't handle anything more than a few quick swipes!

  7. First, I must say that I adore everything about this cute summer look. Those shoes make me smile =) Oh, and I can't do a smokey eye either, I stick to neutrals or I think I look like a crazy lady haha.

  8. Yea, I'm not really good with complicated makeup either. I usually stick to golds/light browns. I do have some purples when I try to do a smokey eye, but they never come out that good

  9. I'm completely with you! I have a blog post on stand-by to discuss this very topic. I almost never wear make-up (only mascara and lipstick) and mine is out of complete laziness. You look fantastic!

  10. Your glittery espadrilles are THE cutest!

    You look beautiful...love the natural makeup on you! It took me years, but I am pretty good with a smokey eye. Lipstick, on the other hand, not so much. Seems like whatever shade I try, I look like a clown. So I've given up and stick to lip gloss.

  13. I want that shirt STAT. So pretty. In terms of makeup, anything that gets the job done quick is great for me. I spend 5 minutes in the morning on my makeup since I'd rather sleep in. Thanks for the recommendations!

  26. You look absolutely gorgeous and always look flawless! So jealous! A natural beauty and you don't need much makeup! I'm going to have to look into this brow gel, ever since I went blonde I have struggled finding the right products to fill in my brows (and have them look natural)!

    ReplyDelete
  27. you look bright and beautiful as always. since i wear glasses, i just swipe a little brown shadow on (so i don't look like a zombie), pile on the mascara and call it done. my real focus is blush. i love me some bright pink blush. i am terrified of eyebrow pencils. i would love to learn, and probably could use it since my browns are basically invisible. i'm just scurred.

  31. I can't be trusted with eye makeup myself - all eye makeup tends to migrate downward on me throughout the day!

  33. You are so blessed dear to have such beautiful skin as to not wear makeup! We have an Ulta store out by us, I've never gone in. It's by a Traders Joes though so I might have to take a gander. Oh dear. Said my age :)

  34. I am very intrigued by this magical eyebrow pencil. I notice in my blog photos that my eyebrows tend to disappear, so I could use a way to define them. Definitely looking into Laura Geller products!
    Also, I love your sparkly shoes :)

  40. I'm the opposite... I need to wear makeup. And I like to use quite a bit to play up certain features. It's a security blanket.

  41. My everyday makeup look is low key as well but it sure is fun to have some good products to amp it up when you want! Looking lovely as always.

  43. You look amazing and I am SO proud of you for stepping outside of your comfort zone! I can't do the smoky eye either...it looks more like a black eye. haha.

    I am interested to see what you think about highlighter...that is one concept I have never quite understood.

  46. Girl, you look so pretty! I wish I could get away with such little make-up, but I'm pretty sure when I DON'T apply makeup is when people think I've been punched in the face! Ha!

  49. You don't need makeup Alissa! You have such beautiful skin. Although I'm a makeup product gal, I don't like to look too made up either. It ages people I think!

  53. I'm not really a make up girl either. A little concealer, a little bronzer, a little eye liner, a little mascara… that is about all. You look gorgeous! And those shoes are super cute!

  54. Well good for you to figure out how to use those things! Every time I get something new in the makeup department I can never figure out how to use it. I keep using same three products! ha!

  55. Oh my gosh, I am so not a makeup person...one time I tried to do warm brown eye makeup and got asked if I had bad allergies. Not good! I typically just wear eyeliner and mascara, but this looks like something even I can do!

  56. Consider yourself lucky that you don't need makeup! You have a natural beauty! People ask me if I'm ok if I DON'T wear makeup! It's seriously a pain to have to do your whole face everyday just so people don't think you're ill...haha.
