How did your makeup style evolve as you got older?

I’m wearing Laura Mercier Clique, and Connor is wearing MAC Quite the Standout

Here is mine, in short

  • These days, I rely more on glossy lips, blush, and lots of mascara. It’s the easiest way for me to look polished without having to deal with eye makeup.
  • Speaking of eye makeup, i wear thinner eyeliner because hooded eyelids are hello.
  • On that note, I rarely do sexy wings or whatnot – it’s very difficult to make them even and get them to work with the joint up.
  • Oh, and if I’m wearing eyeshadow, I stick to easy eyeshadow looks with one or two shades at most, usually in lighter tones. I rarely wear dark eyeshadow because figuring out the placement is so stressful, oh my gosh!
  • I do very light bronzer and no contouring at all. I don’t have as much collagen in my cheeks as I once did, so I don’t need any extra definition for my cheeks and what not. I also see the shape of my face as it is. *shrugs*
  • In terms of foundation, I usually wear a highly pigmented moisturizer base because 1) powders and foundations look heavy on me now, especially in full sunlight, and 2) the translucent base makes it easier to reapply sunscreen. Also, i do not like the feeling of wearing too many layers on my skin!

This is what i think my makeup collection will look like moving forward

  • Lots and lots of beautiful, radiant lipsticks with a handful of shimmery gloss! I mean, I’m always going to make room for a nude lipstick, but there’s something to be said for bright pink, red, or coral, especially if I have to get dressed up. I stand up straight and feel seen when I wear those colors.
  • Lots of medium-toned neutral shades (creamy and liquid, because they’re the easiest to blend) for my eyelids.
  • All blush.
  • All tinted moisturizers.
  • A handful of eyeliners that draw the thinnest, most precise lines and don’t disturb my waterlines. (Side note: I can’t throw all I want on my mains anymore. Too many pencils make me itchy now.)
  • One or two bronzers that blend effortlessly. Thinking I’m going back to Chanel’s cream in a jar. old school kid.
  • Some basic eyebrow things. Boring but necessary.
  • Mascara that I hope I don’t hate. very funny! It has been a struggle since i stopped using the eyelash serum and my eyelashes are back to how they used to be.
