1. I could design an $800 shoe line; it’s easy. You use the best materials and you can make beautiful shoes. It’s easier than making great shoes for $90.

    Do you ever suddenly feel the need to totally change up your daily makeup routine?

    This happens to me alllll the time.  It seems like my skin needs and my logistical situation (how much room/time I have for applying makeup) are ALWAYS changing, so I have to change my routine to match.  Right now, I am in college, and I always rush to the building where I have my first class, and then put on makeup in the bathroom there to make sure I’m not late.  This means I want a quick, easy routine that doesn’t require a lot of tools.  Lately, I had been doing this:

    • CoverGirl Smoothers under eye concealer stick
    • CoverGirl pressed powder
    • CoverGirl LashBlast mascara
    • whatever lip gloss I have with me :P

    But this just wasn’t working at all.  My skin is too dry right now (since it’s so cold and windy here) for the pressed powder to do the trick.  I didn’t have time to put primer on underneath, so it wasn’t staying very long, either.

    By the way, contrast this with my summer routine (when I had an internship):

    • Stila oil-free foundation
    • L’Oreal Translucide loose powder
    • Too Faced Shadow Insurance
    • CoverGirl eyeshadow singles (taupe and brown)
    • Too Faced Snow Bunny blush
    • CoverGirl LashBlast mascara
    • brown eyeliner… maybe Rimmel
    • lip gloss

    I had way more time to put on makeup, plus I had a job!  You gotta look good for that!  :)

    Anyhow, I need a quick, long-lasting, brush-free makeup routine… so here’s what I came up with!

    • CoverGirl AquaSmooth foundation. Shouldn’t take any longer to apply than the pressed powder, but it will be more long-lasting and full-coverage-y… plus it won’t accentuate my dry skin!  I actually used to use this in high school but then I went through my try-every-foundation-ever phase… and it doesn’t hold a candle to my Stila but it’s so much cheaper!  :P
    • Maybelline Dream Mousse blush in Rose Petal. I wanted to try a blush I could apply with my fingers, and this works perfectly.  It’s easy to blend and it even has little flecks of gold in it!  Very pretty.
    • CoverGirl Outlast Lip Stain in Sassy Mauve. Isn’t mauve supposed to be kind of purple-ish?  That’s what I had expected, but I ended up being pleasantly surprised that this lip stain actually goes on more like a true red!  I’m really hoping it will have good lasting power (after eating, etc.) because I really feel like my face is unbalanced if I don’t have any color on my lips.  This lip stain is a little drying, as lip stains often are, but if you just put some lip balm on top (I always have Burt’s Bees with me) then you’ll be fine.
    • And of course I’ll be keeping my CoverGirl LashBlast mascara!

    I am very happy about my new makeup routine… hopefully it will keep my self-confidence up as we get into midterm season.

I wish I had nail polish this color!  Can anyone suggest a dupe?

When I was in high school, I used to think I was the only one who felt this way… but since discovering Tumblr, I’ve come to the conclusion that this feeling is pretty much universal.  Especially among teenagers.
