Wow... You're right... It's been awhile. Between work, girl scouts, and the SCA, I've been in a computer avoidance mode. Sorry, y'all.

Today:
Revlon ColorStay Foundation in Buff
Coty Airspun powder in Translucent
Cover Girl Black Eyebrow Pencil (been going for more of a natural look lately)
Prestige Liquid Eyeliner in Black/Brown
Everyday Minerals Eye Shadow in Cypress
Rimmel Eye Quad (using the white only)
Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara in Black
Covergirl Classic Cheekers Blush in Iced Cappuccino
Avon Long Lasting in Forever Burgundy


Regarding my lips: I've got a pretty strong lip shape so I have a tendency to just fill in with lipstick applied straight from the tube. I hardly ever use liner unless that stuff needs to last an extremely long time. When I do use a liner, I fill in my lips using a brush. *truthfully, I believe that most of the way I do things now is a time management thing coupled with extreme laziness.*

Today I'm wearing BB cream, and earlier I had on a little red lipstick. This is significant for me because I've been trying to minimize my makeup as much as possible to try to improve my skin and self-esteem, keeping makeup a joy rather than a chore I feel I'm not acceptable without. This is the least I have worn out since I was a young teenager. I'm proud of myself!

I picked up a BB cream from Garnier. I really like it, minus the fact that it's waaaaay too dark for my vampiresque skin tone.

Today I wore:
Garnier BB Cream in Light (Yeah, right...)
Coty Airspun in Translucent
Cover Girl Black eyebrow pencil
Every Day Minerals Eyeshadow in Moss
Prestige Black Brown Liquid Eyeliner
Maybelline The Falsies Mascara
Revlon ColorStay Liquid Lipstick in Shimmering Sunrise (I think it's called)

:)

Today, and lately everyday, it's

Olay BB Crème in Fair to Light (still deciding if I like it)
Revlon Color Stay Foundation in Ivory (as concealer)
ELF All Over Stick in Pink Lemonade (as crème blush and eye shadow)
Coty Air Spun Powder in Muted Beige (I'm addicted to this stuff)
Fran Wilson Cake Liner in Brown
L'Oreal Million Lashes in Brown Black
Home-made lip balm

Gee, it seems like so little when I put it on and wear it, but that is actually a lot of products to be applying at 4:00 am!

I picked up a BB creme by Maybelline in the lightest shade they had. I really like it! It's great for moisturizing my skin, evening out my skin tone, and as I am obsessed with anti-aging I love that it's SPF 30 too! It's the only foundation-type product I've used that doesn't break me out. I also picked up a few other new goods:
-New PUR face powder, this time in porcelain instead of light as I am considerably paler in the wintertime.
-Revlon Lash Potion mascara in blackest black. It gives my lashes great volume without being clumpy. Won't be a repurchase, though, as it's hell to get off, even with a makeup wipe.
-MAC Viva Glam I. I used to be a strict Ruby Woo girl but this lipstick goes so much better with my yellow-based skin tone. It reminds me of black and white screen sirens.

I actually haven't been doing my makeup lately because my skin has been dreadfully dry, even with me moisturizing twice a day. It seems to be getting better though, now that the weather is warming up and I think I shall wear some tomorrow!

None at all. I just can't do any makeup without me looking clownish and weird.... The few times it works my lips ruin it with their very non-40's shape... :c

You can use lipliner to alter the shape of your lips, actually. I wouldn't go too far outside of your natural shape, but applying foundation to your lips and then redrawing the shape slightly differently can really change your look.
