I have had a couple comments/ questions about makeup lately so I thought I would do a sort of update to my Daily Makeup Routine video I posted August 2012.
Here is that video:
Towards the end, I discuss how I think about makeup; that it is the varnish intended to bring out and enhance the natural beauty of what's underneath.
All throughout the Bible, beauty is a good thing to God. Wearing makeup is not being unhappy or displeased with the way God made you, it's simply cultivating what He has blessed you with to make visible even more beauty. Same reason you would paint an old fence or choose colors for your wardrobe that bring out your eyes and flatter your complexion.
Here is today's video:
My flaws aside, I would say that my first video with simple concealer, light eyeliner, powder, and mascara is perfect for a young lady who wants to look fresh, bright-eyed, and very natural. Even the powder is not usually necessary for a younger lady. That was the routine I had from about 15-19.
As I've realized that I'm actually entering my 20's, I have started wearing a little bit of eye shadow on a more regular basis just for the fun of it and I don't feel like I'm trying to look more grown-up than I am. I really don't know how to do any looks except for the smoky eye, but hey, it's easy, right? :P
Here are the products I am currently using (Love Amazon. Their prices are the best around.):
After watching the first video, I forgot how easy/simple the charcoal eyeliner is. I'm gonna have to start that again. Have you discovered your makeup look changing over time? What are your thoughts on it?
