Get Up and Go

I am a “get up and go” kind of girl.  I began wearing makeup pretty late in the game (senior year).  I use it pretty sparingly, but I have a set routine that I like to follow for everyday wear.
I have a pretty big collection of Bobbi Brown makeup.  I’ve gone to get my makeup done so many times for all sorts of events and end up leaving with two or three things.  It adds up!

I have very fair skin, so I need to wear SPF.  The BB SPF 15 Tinted Moisturizer is perfect!  It has all the wonderful benefits of a moisturizer, but also has just enough coverage to even out skin tone.  I’ve been wearing the Alabaster tint and recently “upgraded” to Extra Light.  It was pretty exciting to be tan enough to get a darker shade.

Because I’m pale, I need a little boost in my color.  I hate sun bathing and I’m petrified of skin cancer, but I like looking tan.  This bronzer is fabulous.  It has just enough shimmer, but not enough to make you look like a middle schooler.  I bought it at Sephora and the lady helped me pick out the perfect shade and showed me how to apply it.  

This eye liner pencil is the best.  I’ve used all kinds, but this one takes the cake in my opinion.  You can make it as thick or as thin as you like and the other end is perfect to correcting mistakes.  I love the Charcoal one because it’s not Avril-like, but it’s dark enough to get the job done.

I’ve tried so many mascaras.  I have the shortest lashes and need some volume.  I’ve used almost every mascara on the market and I love this one.  If you’re in the market for a new mascara, Lancome L’ Extreme Waterproof is the one to get!
On other news, I’ve been going to my high school’s varsity rowing camp.  They needed a coxswain and I happily volunteered.  There’s only twelve rowers at the camp right now, so I’ve been going out in a four with rising seniors.  I’m having so much fun and can’t wait to get back on the Potomac in the fall!
