How Do I Wear That Wednesday: Barely There Makeup

With a nine to five job, running this blog, and running around with my puppies life is busy. I also really love sleep, and don’t love a full face look, so I prefer to keep my makeup routine pretty simple. I just follow a few simple steps to achieve a fresh faced look and I’m ready to head out the door in five short minutes.

Khiel’s Daily Reviving Concentrate to moisturize and refresh my skin in the morning

Smashbox Camera Ready BB Cream or Bobbi Brown Nude Finish Tinted Moisturizer to even out my skin tone and smooth out any fine lines. I like sticking to a BB or CC Cream to keep my skin moisturized and feeling fresh

Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil Ultra-Fine Shape & Define fills in and darkens my ultra-light and fine brows. Without this stuff I don’t even look like I have eyebrows 🙁

Benefit Cosmetics 24-hr Brow Setter setting gel sets my brow colour and shape in place for the day

Benefit Cosmetics roller lash super curling & lifting mascara on the days when I don’t have lash extensions on. If you live in the GTHA area go to my girl Danielle for lash extensions, she’s the best!

Smashbox Studio Skin 24 Hour Wear Waterproof Concealer corrects any dark circles or small imperfections

Cargo_HD Picture Perfect Blush/Highlighter, Pink Shimmer dusted along my cheekbones, chin, and forehead for a warm healthy glow

Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Color Balm in Budding Blossom if I want to add a little extra to the look or a darker shade to take it from day to night I’ll use Pudgy Peony or Chunky Cherry
