All Things Face {The Glam Series}

Today I am linking up again with Jordon for her Glam Series


Now today we are talking Face.  Now I have been thinking too much long and hard about what I would write for this post.

You see, I am not the girl who wears make-up everyday, or even at all for the most part.  I am definitely a mascara and eyeliner kind of girl and I am fine with that.  But of course, there are times, like my wedding, when I could not have been more pleased with how I looked while wearing all of the fancy makeup.


Now, I don't know when exactly I stopped being the makeup gal that I was in high school, but somewhere along my path I just stopped.  And hard!  Like a freight train!  I used to be the girl who would never be seen without foundation, eye shadow, eyeliner and mascara.  It was exhausting!  LOL.  I think as I got older I got more comfortable with the fact that I was never going to look like a super model with makeup on and to sleep a little more and apply minimal items.  I learned to embrace my freckles (or angel kisses as my mommy always called them) and pale white skin and just accentuate my pretty green eyeballs :)

Now as much as I love my sleep, which you best believe me I do, I would like to start getting a little more put together from time to time for me and the hubs. :)  

Today I am asking for any advice you can give a gal!  I am not opposed to big store items like Ulta and Sephora, but I am a total lover of good items that aren't breaking the bank also.  

Thank you in advance and I look forward to sharing my new face routine maybe one day soon :)

  1. Your makeup looked flawless for your wedding! I am an avid lover of all the NYX products. They are VERY cost friendly and are great!

    Thanks for linking up!

    1. Thank you Jordon! I will definitely look into that brand and possibly try some stuff out. I hear everyone talk about BB cream so I might go find one of those :)

  2. Love this post! I would recommend BB cream! There are several on the link ups that look like a great try. But, they are super lightweight, but do give you a little bit of "face" without that makeup feel! I currently use Estee Lauder's, not a big fan because they only have two shades and I am unfortunately neither!

  3. Well, you already read my post so you know my recommendations. I am going to second Jordan though and say that your makeup at your wedding was amazing! You look so great!

  4. Found you through the link-up...honestly I am super jealous of your simple routine! If you don't already use blush, I would definitely suggest it. Even on the days when I feel like keeping it simple, blush and a little mascara are my go-to's to brighten up my face!

    1. Hi Tracy! Thanks for stopping by! Thanks for the tip. I don't use blush, it really scares me. I don't want to look like a clown with big pink cheeks ya know? But I will take it into advisement - after all I am an adult and should know how to choose a proper blush color now. :)

  5. I wear makeup almost every day, I am jealous you feel so comfortable in your skin without makeup! You must have gorgeous skin :)

    1. Thank you for that, but I'm not sure I have gorgeous skin as much as I just don't really care that much. LOL. I, of course, have days where my blemishes are annoying, but for the most part my skin stays clear of acne and such. I think the Simple products really help that.

      Thanks for stopping by!
