Everyday Face By e.l.f.
This is my face right before I leave the house most mornings:
In the summer, my entire routine was moisturizer under my eyes, mascara, done. In the past few weeks I added a little tinted moisturizer to even out some sun spots but the craziest I EVER get is eye shadow. No blush, no bronzer, no eyeliner, never any lipstick. I mean, if I’m not even bothering to brush and dry my hair before heading to Target I’m definitely not spending more than 30 seconds on my face.
But with the cooler weather here and a 3-times a week preschool drop off (There are people there! Who look at me! And who I might have to talk to!) I need to make sure I don’t look like an exhausted ghost. Although I still don’t want to spend more than 30 seconds. Maybe 3 minutes, tops.
And then Collective Bias was like “Hey, want some cash to buy new e.l.f. makeup?” and I was all “Whoa, are you guys in my brain?” and they were like “But you have to go buy it at Target” and I was like “DUH.”
Can we talk about e.l.f. for a minute? Am I the last person on the planet to figure out it is a cute brand with nice stuff at a super inexpensive price point? Like, I checked with someone working in the next aisle to make sure this eyelash curler wasn’t priced incorrectly:
Everything was priced between $1 and $6 with most things falling in the $1-$3 range. I went a little crazy when I realized how much stuff I could get without feeling guilty. I even picked up new brushes and eye shadow applicators, which I haven’t bought in YEARS.
When I got to the car I tried on the Lip Balm with SPF 15 immediately. It was surprisingly minty and a great, subtle color on my pale, no-makeup face. I think it went really well with my large iced coffee.
After I got home I played with more of the products. I’m pretty excited about that eyelash curler, but my entire face plan (starting today!) is: moisturizer, under-eye concealer, a little brown eye-liner, curl my lashes, mascara, an all-over powder to keep me from getting too shiny and then a little pink face-stick to make me shiny in the right places. I’ll add one of the two subtle lip colors on most days and the deep red matte lipstick on days I’m feeling fancy and/or want to start rumors among the preschool moms.
Now if you see me at preschool drop off, I’ll be the one who looks like she gives a crap. Or just remember this face:
Although after I bought my new makeup I splurged on new yoga pants, so don’t expect too much.

Do you have an everyday face routine? Is it as basic as my summer face or are you one of those people who actually knows how to wear eyeliner correctly?
