So look girls – We’re ALL guilty of sneaking on some eyeliner fresh out of the shower! I’m sure you’ve even woken up at 8AM right before your boyfriend wakes up to put on some makeup so he thinks he’s waking up to a gorgeous goddess.
I mean, HEY! I’m totally guilty. But I’ve also heard of the guy that says; “You look beautiful with no makeup on.” Even though that’s cute and all, We as girls know that guys always react totally differentl when we’re glammed up. Am I right? Or am I right?
SO, throughout many trials and tribulations… I have come up with the perfect makeup ritual! I am about to out my best makeup secrets yet.
I’m going to share how I’ve tricked guys into thinking I’m wearing no makeup. No, seriously. Dont’cha want to hear “You’re so beautiful and you’re not even wearing any makeup!” ?
NARS Cosmetics The “Multiple” in Cococabana
A cream shadow. This is essential! A light, shimmery, champagne cream shadow will do most of the work for you. A quick swipe under your brow and down into the inner corner of your eyes will automatically give you an instant pick me up. If you’re looking a little extra tired, Swipe the shimmer right under your eye. It’ll create a subtle glow that will reflect/hide any dark circles.
Want to go an extra step? Dap a little of the shimmer shadow right below your bottom lip and right above your top lip. This will make you appear dewy and give you an all around subtle glow.
Maybelline New York The “Falsies” Volum’ Express
A volumizing mascara. Always, Always, ALWAYS carry this. Instead of using an eyeliner ( which will ALWAYS go noticed ) use a volumizing mascara. If you apply your mascara starting close to the root of the lash, it will deposit enough mascara to create the definition you’d try to achieve with a liner. Not to mention you’ll have gorgeous defined lashes!
Want to go an extra step? Follow up with a couple coats of mascara on your lower lashes. I’m a huge fan of applying mascara on both top and bottom.
Maybelline New York ”Color Sensational” Lip Stain
A lip stain. Lip stains often scare women away ( including myself ) but you should definitely own at least one in your cosmetic case. Find a lip stain that almost matches your natural lip color or a shade up from your natural lip color. Apply it on your lips as precisely as you can. It will look like you’ve just had a cherry lollypop or a popsicle. This way, when you kiss your honey ‘Goodmorning‘ you won’t leave his lips with a shimmery, glossy mess.
Want to go an extra step? For you girls who have lips on the smaller side, apply your lip stain just above your natural lip line. It’ll help give the illusion of a thicker pout.
My little makeup ritual is truly a fool proof plan! It only involves 3 products and will only take 5 minutes! Your man can touch your face, kiss you, you can lay your head on his chest and no matter what NOTHING will rub off. This is a win win for you, your man, and the person who does his laundry!
xo, yours truly…
