Musings of the Day: Make-Up Less!?

Fest up peeps! Do you leave your house without makeup on? Foundation-less? Gasp! Not a stitch of blush on your cheeks!? No lipgloss!?

Find out if I do after the jump!

If I’m running errands or just hanging out with friends my normal makeup wear is a bit of moisturizer, concealer, and cheek stain. That’s about it. I don’t do mascara, gloss, lipstick, shadow, etc……

How about you?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    If I’m not feeling up to doing full on make-up I wear a quick problem-area coverage with liquid foundation. Almay ideal lipcolor ( it’s a nice moist shiny sheer color) + eyeliner (always always have my urban decay 24/7 eyeliner in zero) and a quick swipe of the telescopic mascara with the teeny ball brush from the drugstore and some matte powder to finish. Then I carry rice papers for blotting around especially in the summer- I’m in New Orleans and our humidity % and temp. are usually the same number in the summer months!! It’s like living in a steam bath. Very tough on make-up 🙁

    Well it depends on my mood, if I’m in a good mood I’d put on powder, blush, eyeliner, mascara and lip stain when I go to the mall. If I’m in a blah mood I’ll have nothing but tinted lip balm. The SAs actually give better service when I have makeup on, most of the time.

    Hello! I recently discovered your website and I just wanted to tell you that I LOVE it!

    I rarely go out of my home without eye make up on…I love eyeliner and mascara especially. I don’t use foundation at all; every one that I’ve tried thus far clogs my pores (I’m very acne prone), so I’ve given up for now. 🙂

    I’m definitely not afraid to leave my house without makeup. As a college senior it’s sometimes more important to get that extra 10 minutes of sleep! For a regular day or if I’m going to work I’ll do soft eyes and a matching lip and blush, but for days when I’m in a hurry it’s usually mascara, gloss and go.
