Wake-Up Make-Up: My Guide to Looking like a Million Cups of Coffee
Okay, so a little while back, I asked you guys for your quick and easy make-up routines in the morning. What products you use and love. This is literally what most of you guys wrote back:
Alicia Keys Make Up
It was pretty entertaining to get these responses. And now the rest of you all have some creative ideas for how to look more awake in the morning. Never again forget to take your deodorant and magnesium with you before you leave the house.
In addition to coffee and sunglasses, here are a few more ideas for morning make-up. The links take you to Amazon prime but some of the products are definitely cheaper in-store at Target. Add your own suggestions in the comment section! Feel free to add to the list above too...
1. Wet n' Wild Eyebrow Kit
$4.60 - If you like to fill in your eyebrows a bit, then I highly recommend this! It's really easy to apply with the brush. To create a nice fine line and then to blend it in. Once I started using this I've never looked back. I don't love using the wax included but when I'm feeling courageous I give it a shot.
2. Maybeline Fit Me Concelear
$6.17 - This is really good at concealing darkness under the eyes, without looking cakey. I've been using it for a long time and like to take it with me in my bag whenever I remember.
3. NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil Shadow Liner
$5.25 - I like this product because it's so easy to apply. Just swipe it back and forth a few times across your eyelid and then use your finger to spread and blend it in. It has a very pretty, subtle color and shimmer that's not overkill. I will say that I was sad that there's no way to twist the bottom for more make up... what you see is what you get.
4. Wet 'n' Wild White Eye Pencil in White or Nude
About $1.00 at Target - I feel so cool for knowing this trick. A little big of white eyeliner on the waterline will help your eyes look a bit more awake and bigger. I will admit that when overdone it can look weird and slightly alien-esque so be aware of that.
5. Neutrogena Moisture Smooth Lipstick in Rich Raisin
$6.29 - Somehow I found this at Target on sale for under $3. It's super smooth and soft, and feels like a great quality lipstick with great pigment. I like to dab a little onto my cheeks too for blush.
6. L'oreal Voluminous Mascara
$7.95 - This is the best mascara I've ever tried. It makes lashes look really long and hardly ever clumps. Every time I try out a new mascara I end up regretting it and just going back to this one.
Have you used any of these? Thoughts? Additions?
