Makeup Essentials

Hi, lovlies! I know it's been a while. School and my internship have been keeping me very busy. Speaking of my internship, I was promoted from a staff writer to an editor! It's more work, but I'm so excited to join the editing team. As for school, this final semester is proving to be my hardest. But, it's my last so I'm making the most of it! 

Let's talk about makeup. I'm typically not the one to try the latest beauty trends, and my idea of experimenting with makeup is wearing bold lipstick. However, after twenty-two years, I have mastered the "Alyssa Look". 

My makeup routine is far from complicated as my motto is "less is more". Clinique's CC cream is a lifesaver and makes for the perfect foundation. Next, I add a bit of bronzer then blush. Since I have a pink undertone, I've found that peach-colored blushes suit me best. I always wear mascara, but I save this Dior one for when I go out. It makes my eyelashes long and full, and I just love how my eyes look when I wear it. The downside, it's a b**** to take off. Lately, I've been experimenting with lipstick. I recently found out about this lipstick brand called Bite. I really like some of their colors, but the one I put on my list is my favorite color. It seems reaaallly pink, but it suits my skin-tone just fine. 

I promise I'll be posting more outfits soon! In the meantime, check out my latest story for College Magazine :)
