My Go-To Glam Makeup | Full-Face Routine

One of the reasons I love playing with different makeup looks is because it allows you to become whoever you want to be that day. Sometimes I'm feeling more laidback and casual (hence my "no makeup" makeup routine) and other days I want to inject some va-va-voom! 

(This post is all about the va-va-voom!...)

After a recent girls' night out I was inspired to recreate the completed "glammed up" look that I wore out that night. I'll take you through all of my getting-ready steps from my foundation, to winged out eyeliner, contouring and even a punchy, bright lip color. If you are loving the current bright lip trend as much as I am, then don't forget to check out the Maybelline Vivid lipsticks in your local drugstore! I can't rave enough about the beautiful color selections and comfortable formula they have to offer - I'm wearing the Vivid lipstick in "Vivid Rose" in this video.
