I love getting makeup done for shoots. Most of what I know about how to apply makeup I learned from how other people put makeup on me, but I still haven’t figured out how to do makeup that translates as simply flawless skin on camera. It usually looks like, yes, I’m wearing makeup.
There have been some makeup disasters in the past — like when one makeup artist experimented on using green eyeshadow for my lids — but mostly I’ve been really pleased with how I get made up.
I usually reserve putting on makeup for special occasions, though, just to show a contrast between my regular self and my put-together self. I love getting dolled up but I never want to get used to wearing a “face” all the time. I did it before and disliked how sallow my skin looked without makeup. Going barefaced allows my skin to breathe, recover, and it’s so much less high-maintenance. And if babies can do it and still look great, why can’t adults? 😀
I usually go out wearing nothing on my face but some moisturizer (with SPF included). So what’s your everyday face routine?
