No Rush Makeup

When it comes to your make up, you want to make sure you are making the right impression. Often times we are in a rush to get from one place to the next however, make up should be an exception! Everything has a process including your makeup. Start by getting a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer (Neutrogena, Olay and Clinique are a few to try).
For an everyday natural look, once your face is prepped, make sure you use a primer to help set your makeup in place and help it last longer. Follow up with some concealer to hide some of those fine lines and blemishes. Next up apply your foundation using a facial sponge and make sure to BLEND! Natural light or incandescent light is the best to use to make sure your make up is not too light or uneven.
Tip: If your foundation color is not on the shelf, you take the closest of two shades (a light and dark) to create your color that is in between.
Next up, use a brow pencil, powder/cream or mascara (I use this technique) to help fill in your brows. Apply a primer to your eye lashes to get them conditioned and elongated  and then add your mascara. Last, but not least, add a little blush to your cheeks and a tinted lip gloss and your ready to go!
Depending on how skilled you are, it may take you 10-20 min. to complete this look. Always remember help is out there. Utilize YouTube (I love Thechicnatural) and learn something from everyone and find out which methods work for you. Maybe one of these days I will create my own tutorial! ?
