The Lipstick League – week of 9.24.12

Question of the Week: – How does your makeup routine change from summer to fall?

EauMG’s Answer: My skin gets crazy dry in the fall/winter. AND the rainy season starts in Seattle, so my makeup routine changes big time. I switch to a creamier foundation and concealer from no foundation in the summer. I switch to a primer (Reviva Labs) instead of mineral sunscreen powder to help foundation last longer in the humidity. I switch to waterproof mascara and liner so I don’t look cray-cray when I walk around Seattle. I wear cream eyeshadows and cream blushes more often; these hold up to the humidity much better than powders. And my lipsticks typically get more red or darker. I’m a closet goth, you can usually tell this in the fall – loads more liner and darker lipsticks. I just get way more dramatic in the fall. It puts me in my element.
