JERA: THE LAZY MAKEUP EDITION

Yes, I admit… I do cheat sometimes! At makeup, that is… so as to cover up my signs of fatigue 😦 This is a makeup blog, so what else do you think I will confess cheating about? πŸ˜›

On certain days when I happen to have had late nights and unable to fight the desire to sleep more in the morning, I will cut down my makeup time without compromising on the “look good” criteria πŸ™‚

So how do I achieve this look? With the use of black eyeliner, glitter eyeliners and a striking choice ofΒ  lip gloss colour πŸ˜€ This is the time when you don’t need any precision on the drawing of eyeliners. The messier it gets, the more artistic it portrays, and the better you look… of course, don’t over do it till you look like you are crying glitters! That would be too funny…

p/s. Remember, practice makes perfect!

LAZY MAKEUP DAYS

Are you the kind of girl who die-die always must makeup before she steps out of the house (or even worse, out of the room)? Well, I used to be like that… but I suppose as I grew older, I’ve grown to be less mindful about showing my naked face around and instead, I’ve learned to be more comfortable about the praises and criticisms that come along with such openness πŸ˜›

So as much as I love wearing makeup, there are days when I am lazy and go makeup-less (also because I believe in letting the skin ‘breathe’ every now and then). Especially over the weekends, when I’m not out meeting friends and I have no need to doll up. And of course, on days when I’m having PMS, sick, or still nursing a hangover after a late night out.

For lazy makeup, it means a little bit of powder foundation and drawing of eyebrows; no concealer and no eye makeup. On such days of laziness, I never fail to put on a pair of sunglasses to mask that pair of tired eyes πŸ˜‰

Apart from sunglasses, ONE thing you can’t go without is sunscreen! That is the only thing you cannot be lazy about πŸ˜› Why? Because if you don’t protect your face from the sun, you will definitely regret it 10 or 20 years down the road when your pigmentation appears full-blown! Unless you are not Asian, of course… and one of those rare breeds that don’t get pigmentation~

p/s. Sunglasses are from Forever 21 – I love the fact that it’s pink on the sides!
