    Mascara and a Lip, My Top Tips

    Aside from my general laziness, I'm working on it guys, I'm putting my current low makeup routine down to the fact that with mascara and lipstick, you're pretty much sorted, if I do say so myself. Now that is due to a number of factors that I thought I should ramble on about today.
    Now, I have to stay gracious and gives to God that I was blessed with curled lashes. Yes, I am sorry to say that I do not normally curl my lashes because they naturally curl with the exception of 3 or 4 in each lash that run straight down.  In this case, I calm down and do not immediately pluck them but calmly reach for my mascara.

    My favourite Mascara is the W3LL People Expressionist Mascara. This mascara is the mascara I have spent my life looking for. First, it holds a curl gives my lashes volume without any clumps. Also, the colour is very black so it gives it a wet, clean look and not a faded smear. Last but not least, it is the only green product I have tried that is all natural, does not contain any parabens and toxic chemicals but truly gives you  the same look as using a traditional mascara. My only gripe with the product is that there is only one store locally in Edmonton that stocks the product. I normally purchase the mascara from an online store for convenience and the price. Ok, once you have your lashes sorted, let's move on to the lips. 

    I always wear a lip product before I head out of the door. I guess it's a habitat that over time, turned into a basic necessity, much like brushing your teeth in the morning. Some days, I wear a tinted lip balm like Maybelline Baby Lips and on some days, I boldly go for a purple or red lip. Normally, my lips have a purplish hue to them so I tend to want an overall colour to define my lip shape. My favourites include giving my lips some definition by using MAC Chestnut lip pencil and  adding colour by applying Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Deauville.  For a trust red lipstick, hit up the drugstore and get Maybelline Colour Sensational Matte Lipstick in Rich Ruby # 691.

    Of course the biggest plus is that it’s marginally quicker to get ready in the mornings and if it means an extra five minutes in bed, then I’m DOWN.
