Everyday Make-Up Routine

Ever since I was little I adored make-up, and finally when I started 7th grade I was allowed to wear it. Ever since then, my love for make-up has grown. The only thing that is different is I am not piling it on like I did in jr. high. I put just enough on to ensure I don't look like I just rolled out of bed. Besides the occasional bold lip or smokey eye, this is what I wear every day.

I had never tried any MAC make-up until this past November when I decided to try something new. I've had a really hard time finding a color to match my skin tone in the past with other make-up brands but with MAC I have found my exact color. Sadly, I think that MAC make-up gets a bad wrap sometimes because everyone thinks its so thick and "mask-like". Totally the opposite for me. As you can see my freckles still show through and it is so light it doesn't even feel like I have make-up on. A tip that I have been doing to keep my make-up more natural looking is instead of using black mascara and eyeliner I switched to dark brown. It's not as harsh and goes well with my blonde hair. Another amazing tip that I just started doing is using clear mascara on my eyebrows. It eliminates the power-y look and keeps all your hairs in line. Lastly, this might sound silly but to have natural looking make-up you can't pile it on! Make-up is supposed to bring out your natural beauty not make a whole new face! What is your everyday make-up routine?
