Get your Face on

Well, one of the blogs I like to read is having a blog party.
It's called GET YOUR FACE ON







Ready?

Before ~ fresh after a workout at the gym, trip to Target, and time with the kids.
one word: WOW.

I would like to explain that this is a typical day ~ you know no showering before 1pm.
And I am a very simple make up girl.


Ready?


Cleanse ~ I use one of these products depending on exfoliating needs.




War Paint:

Moisturizer with SPF

Eye Cream

Foundation (have yet to find one I love, but I like this for the different shades ~ you know winter face and summer face)

Bronzer, which in this picture looks really dark, but once applied is not .

Blush

Eye Liner

Mascara

Lip Gloss ~ although today it was lip stick, because the gloss I like was downstairs.

Thats it ~ maybe 5 mins worth.

and

~ Voila ~



But now my hubby is going to come home from work and wonder what got into me today :)

You are gorgeous! I know when my hubbie comes home and I have hair and make up done, he has to check to make sure it isn't a birthday or anniversary.

Both before and after are gorgeous! Your make-up gives you a warm glow and makes your eyes pop! Miki

You are truly lovely before and after! Such a beautiful face! If I look too purdy when hubby comes home he messes up my make-up...teehee...gotta love those hubbies!

Well then SET OUT THE WINE GLASSES, and get those kids to bed!!! (0; You look great! Just found out about this event, and am sorry I didn't know about it sooner! It looks like fun, and I have to commend all of you for your bravery! I really do love all the hair and makeup tips and recommendations! I think you all have convinced me to FINALLY TRY some mineral makeup!! Nice to meet you! ~tina

What a beauty you are, I love that you go to Target that way. I do the same thing, most days there is no makeup, but I do enjoy getting dolled up from time to time. I am so glad Beth did this I think is making us all seem more real to each other, I love seeing a new side of the blog world. I can't wait to get to know you more.

Jennifer Juniper said...

I love it! You still look natural yet so beautiful!

Lisa Anne said...

You look just as good without the make-up. I think this is a great post. I'd be scared to post a picture of me with no make-up. I might lose all my readers.

Ajaire said...

Your eyes are amazing! And I love that you wait until after the gym to take a shower since that's what I do too. :)

Kristi @ Creative Kristi said...

You look awesome! I linked up too and am visiting everyone to cheer them on! I totally laughed out loud about the husband coming home and wondering what was going on....I think my hubby thought the same thing lol

Mandi @ Finding Home said...

You are stunning! Such a pretty smile and pretty eyes! I wish 5 minutes made me look that good! I definatly think I need to get some bronzer.

Ajaire said...

Thanks for your comment on my post. I think you're going to love your moisturizer. It's great stuff!
I meant to say earlier that I laughed at the part about your husband coming home as well. That's the main reason I didn't go any further than putting on the mascara for mine. My husband would have thought he forgot a special occasion if he came home and I was fresh out of the shower (oh yes it was 5:20pm when I took those pics) with full makeup on during the week!

Jennifer said...

Beautiful!!

Liz @ Sugarplum Creations said...

Oh you are so lovely! I can't imagine going anywhere without makeup on, but then again my skin isn't as beautiful as yours!

Melanie said...

You are absolutely beautiful makeup or no makeup.

Stephanie said...

Absolutely beautiful!

Carol said...

You look gorgeous! I love your thick dark hair!

Jen C. said...

Simple is often underrated. You look glamorous! I really, really like your hair color!
