Easy Makeup

 My go-to makeup look is super easy. I smudge olive eyeliner with a Q-tip right into the lash line and use the rest to add a little "smoke" under my eye. Then I dot the inner corners of my eyes and underneath my eyebrows with Burberry's Fresh Glow. I'll also dab a little bit onto my cheekbones too. Most of the time I use my fingers to apply makeup- I just think it makes it look more natural when you don't use brushes. My favorite mascara right now is Sumptuous by Estée Lauder because it gives me really fluffy eyelashes. I prefer to look dewy rather than matte so when I'm done with all my makeup I spritz some of Mario Badescu's rosewater onto my face. As for my hair, I always let it air dry and add a couple drops of Shu Uemura Essence Absolue oil

I've always thought your look was so natural. Your hair is absolutely amazing, and your make up looks really natural.

You look amazing. Maybe I should try olive liner one day. As for now, I'm using cream coloured eye shadow and just a bit of black liner every day and it looks quite natural. I've been using so much make up the past few years that I'm glad I'm now finished with my rouine in 5 minutes time!

Lovely! My makeup regime is similar. Except for the mascara part. I hate mascara! I just use an eye lash curler and smudge the lash line like you do. You are a true natural beauty!

Hi Karla,
Been following your blog for quite a while, awesome work here! Love your fashion sense.

I also prefer dewy over matte, but I find it hard to achieve with combination skin (and open pores) of mine.

Anyway, love love your blog!! Keep it up:))

Burberry's foundation is the absolute HG foundation for me, and such a perfect texture and color match that I can just use it as a concealer in a few places. So I'm curious about their "fresh glow". Sounds tempting...

Does any of you have ever heard about www.elcoplanet.com or maybe use their web hosting service ? Thanks

Elcoplanet.com are ok, I used their services few years ago, nowdays I am using www.eaglehsot.info and their Alpha Reseller package, I can see now they have Super Alpha Reseller so I can try it when I have more money , I am kidding www.eaglehost.info are pretty cheap because they have own network compared with www.bluehost.info or www.ixwebhosting.com they are maybe popular but they are just resellers, so www.eaglehost.info is my recommendation, go for it
