After my morning skincare routine and sunscreen application, I liked to prime my face before applying makeup. I’ve put on makeup without primer before and experience has literally showed me that without a primer, makeup can move, wear off, and fade much quicker than if I did use primer.
The following makeup are among the many tried and tested products that worked for me. Within each category I’ll list them with the product I liked the most (or at least do, at the moment). Something to keep in mind is that skin texture changes throughout the year so it is important to adjust skincare and makeup application accordingly.
I find it therapeutic to grab a palette from my collection and swatch the colors on my arm. On occasion–and for special ones–I do a more complete makeup look that includes eyeshadow, but when it comes to work, “Ain’t nobody got time for that!”
Nowadays, I want to get as much sleep as I can before dragging my carcass out of bed. Yes, I still get to work way too early, but I like to give myself a buffer. LOL
So, I have a simplified version for my daily work look. I think my arm’s seen more makeup colors than my face has!
