Makeup is my BFF FOTD

Isn't it weird how something as trivial as makeup can make you feel so much better about yourself?

A lot of people say that "Oh, you don't NEED makeup".

Sure, nobody NEEDS makeup, but it puts me in a better mood. When I feel prettier I am more pleasant to be around. I might be over-analyzing this, but I feel that people totally judge me when I'm bare-faced.

Maybe I've been around my job too much, but now everything I see someone I automatically think of ways to improve the appearance via makeup. I even mentally foundation matched the Subway guy.....LOL

This is me w/ just foundation.

With a little more help from eye makeup

What I used:

--Laura Mercier Creme Smooth foundation in Sunny Beige (My ideal color would be Warm Ivory, but I ran out of the sample)
--Hard Candy Glamoflage concealer in Light
--NYC Sunny Bronzer

--Ben Nye Contour #1
--Rock & Republic blush in Lush (MAC Peachtwist is a great dupe)
--MAC Soft & Gentle MSF

--I kinda forgot.....but I know that MAC Steamy and Greensmoke were involved....
--Physician's Formula gel liner in Green Eyes
--Stila e/s in Nanda Devi for brows
--Maybelline Lash Stilettos mascaras w/ L'oreal Voluminous Million Lashes on top

--As always, nothing

This look took me at most 10 mins to do and goes to show you how much makeup can change you.

Yes, I'm a makeup addict and I'm DAMN proud.

Crap....I'm running late for work. Have a great day guys!

You are beautiful with or without makeup. :)

I totally agree with you, makeup makes one feel just a bit better about themselves, even if it's just lipgloss and mascara. It gives you a bit more confidence and makes the day hopefully go by a better.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving :)

Well said! I definitely agree. (: Btw what do you think of the Hard Candy Glamoflage? I want to pick it up but I'm scared it'll be cakey or make me break out... any input would be appreciated!

Ami: I will do a review on Glamoflage soon. In short, it's a great drugstore concealer. However, you HAVE to use a little bit at a time or else it will look cakey.

aww you are pretty both ways!!!. I like your eyes and how you do your make up. So simple but stunning =).

For some reason, I can't leave the house without any make up on. At least foundation , blush and fill in my eye brow lol. You are right!!! it puts you in a good mood!! hehehe

i completely agree. makeup is more than about being superficial. i think it's a state of mind. the perfect color lipstick can empower a woman and just make her feel more confident. i think people can tell if i make an effort with my appearance and it sends a message about respecting myself and caring about how i look. thanks for sharing xo
