My Daily Makeup-Keeping it Fresh and All About the Lashes

I’ve been on a minimal makeup kick. Winter is always the season I wear more makeup all around- once it starts warming up and the humidity rises, I have to change my game plan. Higher humidity=higher chance for cakey-ness. It’s also true that piling on makeup isn’t necessarily the secret to looking youthful and fresh, and while I’m in no way complaining about getting older, I don’t want to practice any habits that age me unnecessarily. Keeping that in mind, I’ve done the impossible- I’ve gone without my signature black eyeliner for almost two weeks, and I’ve kept my foundation routine as light as I feel I can while still evening out my skin tone.
