I keep it pretty simple. I don't wear a whole lot of make-up, which is probably why people assume I'm 16 rather than 27.
I start with a daily moisturizer and I follow that up with a tinted moisturizer. I like Covergirl BB cream. I use a cosmetic wedge to apply the moisturizer to my forehead and T-zone, and then I add the tinted moisturizer all over my face. I find that the tinted moisturizer helps conceal the post-pregnancy patchy skin on my cheeks.
I use Loreal liquid eyeliner on my top lid-- I don't use eyeliner on my bottom lid since it makes my eyes appear much smaller. I use Maybeline Million Lashes mascara on my top lid only for the same reasons as the eye liner.
I use Covergirl oil control powder to "set" the tinted moisturizer. I add some Covergirl peach blush and I apply e.l.f. lip stain in a neutral shade. I'm really impressed with the lip stains since they add a pop of color and stay in place without transferring to coffee cups like most lip sticks do.
Other products I like include Dove deodorant (it provides a nice light scent), a great summery Essie nailpolish shade (I like Cute as a Button), and my Chi hair straightener (which even keeps my surf-wavy hair tame & straight even in this Alabama muggy summer heat!).
And the best beauty tip of all is remembering to drink water throughout the day! I love my Brita water filter bottle, and I take it with me everywhere I go.
I give the mirror a great big smile and I'm on my way!
