Confessions... I'm On My Way To Makeup Slayage

I'm on my way to makeup slayage but first allow me to give you a bit of the backstory of why I slowed down on the eye makeup looks.

For the past year I have not been doing much to my eyes in terms of makeup for no good reason other than my allergies being on overload. Since the end of 2016 to this current moment, meaning like right now my eyes tear up at any sign of dust, dander, mold, highly scented cosmetics or simply the change in weather. Literally each time I have applied makeup to any location near my eyes or on my eyelids specifically the inner corners and water lines within a matter of minutes they are watering as if someone had turned on a faucet. The left eye is the worse because it never stops. It's happening right now as I am typing but I am trying my hardest to stop the tears from coming down. I do not want to waste these beautiful products that I smothered on my face this morning. So what I have been doing for the past few weeks is sucking it up, holding in the tears and doing all that I can to make sure this eye makeup stays in tact.

A trick that I found lately is to stay away from highly perfumed products which is difficult because one of them happens to be my new love of the Palladio Rice Powder Translucent Powder. The only problem with that is that it is highly perfumed and I can only use it after I have spot concealed an area with concealer and then applied my this directly on top of it. Shit. I did love it though. Another trick or more like obvious thing to do is switching out any of my liquid products such as eyeliners and mascaras to waterproof formulas. In the past I prefered non waterproof formulas but with these eyes acting as a leaky faucets I have no other choice. Two other things that I doing is switching my makeup application method.

By switching up my makeup application I have seen a bit of relief by first applying eyeshadow primers to the eyes it stopped any type of fallout. Yes, fallout occurs no matter what but the goal is to avoid as much as possible. I know that I should have been wearing primer all along but you learn as you go and in all honesty I wanted the makeup to come off as easy as it was for me to swipe a card to buy it. The last thing I have been doing is pressing the makeup brush onto the skin so it adheres to the primer thus resulting in minor fallout as well. Of course I still use the windshield wiper sweeping motion to blend but not to apply anymore.

To give you a preview of the makeup slayage I have been creating on my Instagram feed here are a few looks. FYI you can also see my Instagram feed in the footer.

Yes, honey! Yes! FYI the products used was an Anastasia Beverly Hills Palette Ulta Eyebrow Crayon, L'OrĂ©al Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara
and L.A. Girl Pro Concealer Medium Beige.

I feel absolutely happy and totally in my element when I am playing in makeup. To see my face go from, "hey" to "hello beautiful" is what I enjoy the most. Don't get me wrong, I am confident on many levels but I see improvement in everything. When I say improvement I mean enhancing the features that I love the most about my face to the ones I see can use some improvement like my eyebrows. My eyebrows have always been thin but full in shape. They are sparse in some areas as well as the hairs of the eyebrows are are this crazy brown color that has like gold undertones of it and it looks either brown or black at times. Idk but yes, back to my point I'm on my way to makeup slayage and I love it.
