Anyway on to my post...
I never thought makeup application could be so complicated. Mind you, I was never this crazy about makeup, my interested started about 2 years ago.
When I first started using contact lenses, I would use only mascara because I didn't like how my eyes were so small. Next it was eye shadow. I would just use a little bit and this was rare. Then eyeliner, blush and eventually the full on base makeup and point makeup.
If you think about it, applying all these items can be quite complicated! I do pretty much everything on my face except concealer (I don't think the Sana concealer really counts) and my eyebrows. So with that said, how do you do your face? What's the order of the things you apply? And how do you apply it?
It usually doesn't take me more than 15 mintues. I use a light hand for base makeup and most of my time is used on my eye makeup. Up close, you will notice that all my spots and such aren't fully covered. I don't want a dramatic difference when I'm using and not using makeup so on days when I don't feel like using a ton of makeup, I don't look sickly or something XD
So here's my order!
1. Makeup primer or sun screen
2. UDPP, Sana Concealer and curl the lashes
3. Light application of BB Cream or Foundation (at the moment I'm using a sample of Cle De Peau and sample of P&J Dual Protective Foundation)
4. Lavshuca Loose Powder
7. Mascara (if I'm using 2 different mascaras, I use the first one, apply blush so the mascara has a chance to dry, then finish off with the second mascara)
What's your order of application? Do you find it easier to do your eyes first or the base makeup?
I never use brushes for my eyeshdaow, I find that it gets everywhere. I just use the applicators that are in the palettes, most of them are shaped for the specific application. I only use a brush for my blush and my fingers for base makeup.
I couldn't find these magazines in full, so here's what I have. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the makeup tutorials.

I've finished making my list of "to buy". Hopefully it isn't going to get any longer as I've added everything up to about $2500 like I mentioned in a previous post. Here's some of the items on my list that I'm drooling over.

Why must January be such a slow month.... -___-'
I almost forgot to mention, I recently discovered a site called Glow.com. I'm sure there's some of you that's heard of it. They sell some great goodies, including most of the things from P&J, which is great news for me when I go back to Canada.
