The Lipstick League – week of 8.4.14

Question of the Week: What is the one step in your daily makeup routine that you dislike the most? What is the one step you love the most?

EauMG’s Answer: I absolutely hate shaving. I can’t stand it. I’ve went without doing it but that was irritating as well. Anyway, I don’t think that is technically my “makeup routine”. I love brows but they are my least favorite to maintain – shaping, filling, setting, etc. My favorite thing in my beauty routine is my entire skincare routine but I guess that isn’t “makeup routine” either. Out of my makeup, my favorite step is applying lip products. With most colors, I use a lip brush. There’s something about this step that is so precise, so formal and so dramatic, that I love it.
