The Lipstick League – week of 3.18.13

Lipstick League Question of the Week

Describe your everyday, go-to makeup look.

G's answer: Lately my everyday go-to look (which I equate with being in a hurry) consists of foundation or BB cream, a bit of concealer and setting powder. Then I'll use a cream blush on the apples of my cheeks, liquid liner (usually black) on just the upper lashline, lots of black mascara on just my upper lashes, and of course I'll fill in my brows with a pencil liner. Then I'll take a powder highlighter and run it across the tops of my cheeks and right above my eyebrows, just to brighten up my face a bit. I usually finish things off with a pinky-brown creme lipstick and I'm out the door.

  1. Go-to look? Usually a BB cream or that Cover Girl 3-in-1 foundation (thanks to your review, I bought it), a bit of concealer and setting powder. A touch of blush, usually some neutral or green eye-enhancing eyeshadow and a bit of liner on the top lash line, curling mascara, and always some kind of lip tint or lipstick -- usually pinky-brown or a warmer red.
