My Make-Up Routine

I cannot believe how fast time has gone by. Soon I'm going to be in California again.
I am going to leave with mixed feelings. But, I'm going to be okay, as always.
I am going to embrace anything and anyone that will cross my path while I am still over here in my hometown. Then I am going to embrace all the fun and exciting moments I'll be experiencing while in sunny California. I cannot wait to see friends and family again, and I plan some get-togethers while I am there too. I am not a huge planner but some things need to be planned...and since I want to see and do some things I better get started. My summer failed (yes, failed, you read right. Even though I am in Europe doesn't mean I've been having a super dooper greater than great summer - let's just say I was bored 97% of the time and felt alone and unwanted most of the time, too!).
Since my summer failed, I am hoping fall and winter will be better? Hopefully.
So I had to come up with some uplifting thing today...for me, maybe for you too:

My almost daily fake routine. Yes. There I said it. Not really fake, but still. I put make-up on, and I do it pretty much on a regular basis, pretty much with similar colors and brands but most importantly, I am never changing my routine. First comes the moisture, then the liquid foundation, then the pressed foundation etc, etc. Sometimes I add more, usually I add less. Sometimes I add a liner, but usually I end up not having enough time or enough patience. But here's what I somewhat normally use:

Morning Routine

1. Clinique Moisture Surge & Aveeno Facial Protection
2. Neutrogena SkinClearing Oil-Free Liquid Makeup
3. Physicians Formula Talc Free Mineral Wear
4. Physicians Formula Multi-Colored Powder Palette and Bronzer
5. Dr. Feelgood Complexion Balm & Too Faced Anti Crease Eye Shadow Primer
6. Sephora Collection Colorful Mono Eyeshadow
7. bareMinerals Eyecolor
8. Clinique High Impact Mascara
9. Sephora Collection Colorful Blush
10. Victoria Secret Lip Gloss

Do you have any special routine? Or a brand you cannot live without?
Mine is my mascara from Clinique, my lipgloss, and one of my moisturizer.
I once remembered that I had forgotten to put on mascara after I saw the doorman at Louis Vuitton with is eyeliner and mascara opening the door. (not that I went inside, but I passed by the store and happened to look into his mascara and eyeliner filled face). 

Oh boy.

How funny about the doorman reminding you about the mascara. I need to have lip gloss and hand cream. I feel naked without it. I use Chanel make-up and skincare though recently I find that I'm using and loving L'Occitane a lot more nowadays for skincare....In terms of the routine - it depends on how much time I have in the mornings, I'm not a morning person, so that means everything in the morning is such a chore! Have a great weekend lovely xoxox

I couldn't live without my artdeco eyeshadow base! no day without it.
Last week I was on holidays and I completely forgot to put on any makeup...arggh! lol I just had to enter the next stop any buy something, return to the car and put it on. I think this is somethink only a girl can understand! I felt fine just until the moment I realised I forgot. I know its ridiculous, no one but me would have know, but still!!

I "just" started to get into makeup, so I don't know much, but I do love all of the Benefit products I have! I now wear eyeliner, bronzer and concealer, which I didn't before!
