Changing Up My Makeup

pin it

For two days in a row, it took me 20 minutes to do my own makeup. I almost never do it without a twist. 

I used Lancôme’s Le Duo Contour & Highlighter Stick in “Ivory” as a shadow base and as contour under my cheekbones. Then I put Lancôme’s Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in “Madison Avenue” on the inner and outer corner of my eye, then wet your brush with Makeup Forever Transformer and place Lancôme’s Sensational Effects Eye Shadow in “Kitten Heel” in the center as a highlight. I only put some kiss lashes in the outer corners of my eye, curled my lashes and used waterproof mascara–for the snow today–and a brow pencil. I also used Kevyn Aucoin’s “Hannabelle” lip gloss.

As far as foundation, I use Lancôme’s Teint Miracle Radiant Foundation with their Bienfait Aqua Vital Day Cream. Women over 50 should use their Absolue Precious Oil between your moisturizer and serum. It leaves a satiny finish.

If you try any of these, let me know what you think!

    Sandy, The other day you posted about doing a finer line along your lashes. I tried that and look like a blank wall. Maybe I just need to get used to it, but it’s not working for me. Any suggestions? Brenda
