I was spending the day running errands, and meeting up with my Mom & Grandma. I wanted to look nice, but have a quick look. I used no contour or liner on the bottom. I used lashes, but that is actually quicker for me than applying several coats of two mascaras. I have to say, perfecting the winged liner has been the hardest thing for me. I will tell you about my favorite way to get them right, so don't be scared of doing it!

Well, looking at the list, this may be a lot of product for some people, but not me :) Anyways, let's get started with the application. Now, when I do a winged liner, I do my eyes first. I really don't like doing my eyes first, but it makes it easier to clean up mistakes.
First, I applied limit to the crease. I used nooner on the crease as well, but focused on the outer corner. Then, I applied strange on the lid and under the brow. Using the liquid liner, I drew a thin line on my top lash line, making it thicker as it goes towards the outer corner. I start my flick at the very outer corner of my eye, where my top lash line and lower lash line meet. I draw it at a diagonal towards my eyebrow. If you have made a mistake or your lines aren't even, DON'T PANIC! No one draws them on perfectly every time. Get a makeup remover cloth, and using ur nail as the sharp edge, wipe away any mistakes. I use these cloths as my eraser. Winged eyeliner takes practice for everyone, I promise. So, just practice and take your time. I like this liquid eyeliner for a flick, because it has a felt tip. It is not a traditional liquid liner. I, personally, don't like to use the traditional kind. I do really like gel liner for this look, though. I do like this felt tip liner, but I have to say, I wish it was blacker. It goes on a little light for me. I applied my Ardell Lashes, and a coat of mascara. Eyes are done!
So, then I worked on my skin. I applied my face primer, BB cream, under eye concealer, and powders. I have to say, I really like this BB cream. It gives a good light coverage, but you have to get the oily to combo one. The dry skin formula is different. It isn't nearly as good. For the cheeks, I applied delizioso pink. This is a new matte blush from Milani. They have two now, and it is really pretty. I definitely recommend all Milani blushes! I topped my cheekbones off with a little Marylouminizer, because I like a little glow. I love J Lo, so I am always trying out her looks!
For lips, I used liner, lipstick, and lip gloss as usual. This color does seem awful bright in the tube, but I really like it in the warmer months. It is definitely a statement lipstick! I hope this gave you some ideas and tips to try. Don't be scared to try new things. Practice your looks, and remember....it's only makeup! Have a great weekend :)
