What's Your Makeup Lingerie?

I'm a girl.  (No, really, I am!)
And one of the fun things about being a girl is makeup.  Not that boys can't wear makeup.  Hey, dudes, if you want to, go for it!  You do you.

But yeah, makeup is fun... although I didn't always think of it that way.
In the beginning, I wore little because I was a spaz and didn't know how to wear it.  It didn't help that most of the colours were not made for little brown girls like me.  Mostly pink.  I mainly looked like a perpetually drunk clown.
Then, I moved to Hawai'i, and lo' and behold, MAKEUP FOR TAN GIRLS like me, because we're pretty much the majority there.  Still, it was warm, and by the end of the day, I felt like I was wearing a sweaty mask.
Then, I moved back to Canada -- the Big City of Vancouver -- where you could find every makeup under the sun.  This is when it became FUN!  I bought all of it.  I bathed in it.  IT. WAS. MY. LIFE.

I had to dial it back.  WAY BACK.  My skin cleared up.  In fact, it looked so good, I didn't need, or want, to cover it up with makeup.  Skincare became my focus.

Now, I only use makeup to highlight my best features.  I wear what my friend Jen from Mythbuster Beauty calls "makeup lingerie".

What is "makeup lingerie"?
It's the bra and panties of the face. It's what you would never leave the house without putting on first, just in case you run into an old high school rival or the ex who dumped you, or heaven forbid, you get hit by a bus and encounter a supercute First Responder (Hope you have clean underwear on too!).

So, what's YOUR makeup lingerie?

Here's mine (and yes, this is what I'm wearing in the pic above):

mascara - Beautycounter Lengthening Mascara (Black)
eye liner - Beautycounter Outline Eye Pencil (Black)
lip sheer - Beautycounter Lip Sheer (Raisin)

If you have any questions about what I use, just email me at nen @ nenettemayor . com.  You can also shop my personal website here.

Okay, now you! :)
