Ur Made Up Face 18 | Cindy N.

Hello everyone! So sorry there was no past last weekend, but here's another Cindy for today's UMUF! I hope you enjoyed her look as much as I did! The lenses she used are gorgeous! ^^


What's up, guys? Before I introduce myself, I want to just say thank you to Joanne for graciously inviting me to be part of her Ur Made Up Face series! I'm super excited and omg. *squealing* Can't wait to show you my FOTD-- it's inspired by The Beatles.
 
I'm Cindy! I write a beauty, fashion, and lifestyle blog called OhCindyrella (ohcindyrella.blogspot.com) and it's awesome to meet you guys! Come by and say hello-- and of course, join me on my adventures in my middle-of-the-desert hometown.


I like to think of myself as an artist. I'm about to become a brand-new RN (registered nurse, like Joanne!) 
My hobbies? That's easy-- I love trying new food (have you had Salvadorian? It's fab!), and my favorites are New Mexican breakfast burritos, pho, pizza, and Ghiradelli dark chocolate (nom!). 

In my free time, I paint with acrylics and watercolors. My favorite painting (and artist) of all time has got to be The Lee Shore by Edward Hopper (1941). His style is absolutely ethereal and reminiscent of an American spirit that no longer exists.

As I do my makeup, I love listening to my favorite album, #3 by The Script. Hall of Fame is a special song to me because it was the first song Al & I ever danced to together. :)
My Made Up Face is inspired by my vintage Beatles OOTD post! These are my products:
1. Super Plus BB Cream in Beige
2. Shiseido Eyelash Curler
3. Maybelline Lash Blast mascara
4. Naked Basics palette
5. Clean & Clear Morning Burst gel moisturizer
6. M.A.C. Blush in Fleur Power
7. M.O.D.E.L. 21 Lashes in 4L (long)
8. 3 W Clinic Soft & Clear liquid eyeliner
 

I start each day by cleansing my face, applying my favorite moisturizer, and putting on just a swipe of BB cream. Moisturizing is the most important step because dry skin equals flakey skin! I use no foundations or powders because I have combination skin. The BB leaves a lovely, dewy finish; it also creates the illusion of nice skin (which I don't have, lol). 

The Naked Basics palette is the only UD palette that I own; I love the colors, though! I'm definitely a matte shadow kind of gal. My glitter days are well behind me. 
I fill in my brows using an angled brush and a combination of the shades Naked 2 and Faint. 
My favorite eyeliner is definitely 3W Clinic's Soft & Clear liquid liner. It goes on so smoothly, does not clump, and evens out my eyelids (sometimes, I have one monolid and one creased lid). 

Sorry I didn't take a photo of it, but my favorite be-all,end-all mascara is Maybelline Lash Blast (yes, the orange one!) I love this mascara because it makes my skimpy lashes long and full-looking, without looking artificial.

My falsies are M.O.D.E.L. 21, a Vietnamese lash brand. It's fairly inexpensive, and each box comes with around 20 pairs. I ran out of clear glue, so I used the dark Star Glue. It works the same way, but you just have to be careful not to open your eyes before the glue is dry! 



Lastly, one beauty product I can't live without is probably BB cream. My skin used to be really bad, but I have been taking my skincare a lot more seriously. I almost said circle lenses, but I have ways to make my eyes stand out without them! BB Cream helps conceal some of the redness that I always seem to wake up with. BB cream fixes almost any skin disaster, so that's why I love having some on hand!
