Lately, when it comes to make up, I'm opting for a minimalist look. Admittedly, I've always STUNK when it comes to putting on makeup. I just can't seem to make it look natural. And as I've mentioned before, there's enough going on on my face without adding MORE to the mix.
Last week I was sick with a flu like bug. Basically, I felt like CRAP and the LAST thing I felt like doing was getting dressed up or putting on cosmetics. After a few days of going bare faced, I noticed that my skin was looking sooooo much better than it has been. I have very sensitive skin and have been prone to have irritation break outs. And while I love the smooth look that many foundations give, that dewy skin look seems to elude me. So, that got me thinking that it may be time to REthink what I put on my face.

I use this blush by E.L.F. which is ridiculously priced at $3. Yes. You read that right. $3. CRAZY! You can find it at
I lightly brush this clarifying powder over my face BEFORE I put on mascara. Again, by E.L.F. and
I finish off now with eye liner and generous mascara, throw on some
My favorite lip gloss! It's the only lip product that I actually run out of! Great deals on this can be found at Bath and Body Works.
Microdermabrasion facial (getting my first one tomorrow!)
