Using a lip liner with define the edges of your mouth, making them appear larger. Try playing with the shape of your lips with the liner, maybe you want a curvier, 1950’s lip, or a more angular one. In my personal opinion, those with smaller lips can rock brighter and darker colors more often because it looks more understated than those with bigger lips, like me. I have a pretty good sized kisser, so wearing louder lip colors is something I’ll save for once in awhile because there’s A LOT of color going on since there’s a lot of lip space. This is just my personal preference, I think all women shouldn’t be afraid to bust out an awesome lipstick whenever they want!

*Also, try dabbing a shimmery powder or highlight (benefit high beam or moon beam for example) on the center of your bottom lip on top of your lipstick, and your cupid’s bow to make your lips appear a little fuller.

My personal daily routine (for those of you who asked) :)

  1. Primer- Victoria’s Secret
  2. Foundation (one pump applied with fingers)- Mac Pro Longwear in NC20
  3. Concealer- MAC Studio Sculpt for spots and Amazing Cosmetics concealer for under eyes
  4. Powder (lightly with kabuki brush)- MAC Studio Fix powder
  5. Brows- Revlon Brow Fantasy
  6. Blush- NARS Orgasm
  7. Eyes- Primer, Kitten by Stila lightly on lid, Cork by MAC in crease, Studio Fix powder for highlight
  8. Eyeliner- Kat Von D Tattoo liner (set with a black shadow)
  9. Mascara- Benefit Bad Gal
  10. Lips- Strawberry lip balm by Rosebud Perfume Co.

This look takes me a little over 5 minutes to do on a day to day basis. If I have extra time one day or I have to look a little nicer, I’ll use the same products but take more time to do it and/or bump up the eyeliner and lipstick.

I was wondering, the order of mineral makeup?
Like after you wash your face, tone and moisturize. What's the next step? Like what tools do you need? Etc?
Like do I wash, tone, moisturize, and then apply the mineral foundation?
I really don't mean to bother you. But I'm kind of new to this. And I'd love your help. Thank you.

Yes those steps are correct! Also, f you want your skin to be a smoother base as well as having your foundation go on easier and last longer, then I would recommend using a primer after letting your skin care set into your face.
