LOTD: My Current Makeup Routine
My typical weekday starts with my alarm going off at 6:50 am and me putting it on snooze without fail... I am finally up by 7:15 am and out of the door for my tennis lessons by 7:40 am... It's with clockwork precision that I follow these times... After an hour of tennis I dash off to my workplace where I shower and get ready to face the day!
Since my makeup is generally a hurried 7 minutes affair at the sink in my office's washroom, it needs to be quick, easy and effective. Today I plan to share my current makeup routine that I have been doing over the past month or so...
1. Base MakeupAs much as I like keeping my base makeup to a minimum I have been going the full foundation and concealer routine this past month. This is because I somehow feel that doing makeup on a tanned complexion is a lot of fun and a novel experience and since I have tanned a lot these past months there couldn't have been a better canvas for me than myself!
I try to keep my foundation as sheer as possible and use my fingers to apply and blend it. I use a little concealer on the under area simply to create a little dimension and set it all with a mattifying powder.

2. Eye MakeupI have always loved playing up the eyes whenever I do my makeup and my current routine is no different. I use a cream eyeshadow as my base and apply a shimmery nude powder eyeshadow on top of it. This combination keeps my eyeshadow from creasing and keeps it on for the whole day. I then heavily line my eyes with black kohl and also smudge a little of it on my eyelids to create a little more drama. I finish off the look with generous coats of mascara.

3. LipstickThis generally keeps on changing but lately I have been getting drawn to pinks like nobody's business and so I opt for a sheer and a very moisturising lipstick so that my lips don't start feeling dry in the middle of the day.

4. Finishing TouchesFinally, I complete my look with a hint of blush, a touch of highlighter on the bridge of my nose and filling in my brows.
