My Makeup Routine: Atoxicsparkle

Over in the Beauty Product Junkies group on TeamSugar, the members have been posting step-by-step breakdowns of their daily makeup routines, complete with before and after photos. What brave souls!

I absolutely love this idea, so I've asked several users if I can post their routines here. I also invite you to join the group and post your own routines. Who knows? You might just end up featured on BellaSugar too!

Today's routine comes from BPJ founder Atoxicsparkle, whose beauty arsenal you can peek at above. To see her makeup routine from start to finish,

Here is Atoxicsparkle's "before shot." She explains: "my eye looks funky but oh well, takin' one for the team. And I swear, I don't always look so pissed as I will in these pics, but my camera was being stupid and giving me hell." Now for the steps:


Step #1: "So before I even start putting makeup on, I do one of the most important things every woman should do, and that is moisturize! I start by smoothing Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion SPF 15 all over my face and neck, then Neutrogena Healthy Defense SPF 30 Daily Eye Cream on and around my eyes. Then, using a wet sponge, I apply MAC Select Moistureblend SPF 15 in NW25 all over my face and neck. To help the foundation settle, I apply MAC Blot Pressed Powder in Medium Dark all over with a large powder brush."

Step #2: "Now I apply Urban Decay Primer Potion to my lids, fill in my eyebrows with my Rimmel Eyebrow Pencil in Brown, then apply Benefit Mr. Frosty Eye Pencil on my brow-bone right under my eyebrow. Then comes the hardest decision: Which eyeshadow to wear? Seriously, sometimes I can stand there for 10 minutes trying to decide on how to do my eyes that day. Today, since I was wearing a green dress, I decided to use the Laura Geller Eye Stay Duo in Champagne/Mocha."

Step #3: "To finish off my eye, I first line my upper lid with my Benefit Eye Sketching Pencil in Onyx. Then I line my lower lid with the Too Faced Foiled Liner in Bronze Bombshell, then smudge it up into the corners with a Sephora Smudge Brush. (Every woman must own one of these; they are awesome!) Curl my lashes and give 'em two coats of DiorShow Mascara in Black, and my eyes are done!

Step #4: To finish, I apply Clinique Fresh Bloom All-Over Colour in Peony on my cheeks with a large blush brush, and highlight my cheek, eye, and jaw bone with MAC Skinfinish in Lightscapade using an angled blush brush. A thin coat of Benefit Her Glossiness V.I.P. Lip Gloss in Life on the A List on the lips, and I'm ready to go!

Now, for the after shot. Bellissima, Atoxicsparkle!

I just became a friend of yours. I like when people like you show their makeup as you did. It makes me see I don't have to much and I don't have to hide it or people will think I'm all makeup.I know that some people wear makeup and don't want people to know it. They're oh I don't like it.
