Blog Series: In my makeup bag

Today I have Noémie sharing her favorite makeup products and tips with us. Noémie is a fellow Canadian blogger who blogs at As Ink Remains, one of my favorite blogs. I should tell you she’s one talented graphic designer, I had the honor to help her out for a project and wow she sure knows her thing! So go and check out her blog, even though she is on a blog break (she just got married!!!) she’ll be back at blogging in July, so bookmark it!

What’s your current makeup bag? 
 I currently hold everything in a small Longchamp bag I bought in Shanghai a few years back.

Do you have a makeup tip or secret you would like to share?
I’m a graphic designer, which means I stare at a computer over 10 hours a day.  When I’m about to meet friends for drinks after work I put a few visine drops in my eyes to get rid of redness and I look instantly awake.

Any particular makeup trend that you’re looking forward for summer?
I’m still a huge fan of the bright pink or orange-y lip. I’ve been focusing on getting my skin to look as natural as possible, and that bright lip just makes me feel a little bit more done up without trying too hard.

How does your day makeup routine differs from your night time one?
In the morning it’s all about prepping my skin for makeup; I use Clarisonic to clean my face, and apply a moisturizer and then makeup with the help of a little Smashbox Photo Finish primer.At night I do the same but put a little more focus on my eyes by using shadow and a bit more liner. My cheeks might get a little more dramatic with an extra swoosh of blush, and I’ll define my eyebrows with a brow pencil.
