day 12: makeup, yay?

Day 11: what is in your makeup bag?

this *has* to be the lamest of the prompts yet, but i don’t care. i’m tired, i can’t think of anything to write, and this is kinda funny to me because i get asked on a regular basis what kind of makeup i use/inquiries about how long it takes to make a shannie. (like it’s some kind of mystery? i don’t look THAT good!).

answers: i wear mostly boots and maybelline, available at target. my eyeliner comes from the japanese supermarket down the street, and my shadow base is from nordstrom. nothing i use cost more than $18 (eyeliner and shadow base were both about $18 each). i’ve tried all the M·A·C liquid liners (crappy) and mascara (flaky! tarantula eyes! bleh!), and honestly, nothing beats maybelline mascara.

this is what i wear every day:
shadow base:  M·A·C Paint Pot in Painterly
shadows: the lightest shade in the Boots No7 Stay Perfect Shadow Palette in Capuccino, Boots No7 Stay Perfect Shadow in Wheatsheaf
liner: K-Palette 1-Day Tattoo Eyeliner in Jet Black
mascara: Maybelline Lash Stiletto Ultimate Length Waterproof Mascara
lipstick: Maybelline Superstay Lipcolor in either Flame (red) or Plum (pink, ironically)
moisturizer: Eucerin Sensitive Skin Everyday Protection Face Lotion SPF 30

and sadly, it only takes 5 minutes to make a shannie. maybe more like three. i don’t wear foundation, powder, or blush (except on rare occassions, i will wear blush, and NEVER bronzer) so i don’t have to do any special treatments or anything, and it’s all super easy.

there. that was fun. but the next prompt had better not be about what i put in my hair.
