Twenty years ago my makeup routine used be a swipe of lipstick, swipe of maybe two different shades of the same color family of eye shadow…but at least one, blush corresponding either pink or peach and mascara and eyeliner and that was only if I was if I had somewhere special to go and it usually took me about ten minutes.
Now I use eye shadow primer, facial primer, foundation with a foundation brush, setting powder, mascara, at least three shades of eye shadow and blending them as well, blush and highlighter, lip liner and lipstick and pink, peach and green concealers and eyeliner…mostly a liquid one. I used to be afraid of liquid eyeliners twenty years ago, safe to say I’m getting braver lol. This is now my everyday when I go out makeup, and it takes at least 45 minutes because I’m still getting used used to all the products and techniques and haven’t gotten them all down yet. I’m totally much more of a makeup junkie than I was twenty years ago too. I’m always happy and open to learning more techniques and tips and making friends with everyone.
