So my morning makeup routine takes me anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes depending on how glam I want to look. But typically I go for simple, clean beauty before heading out to the office.
There are a few items on my list that I have fallen love with that allow me to get get that beautiful natural beat. This list does not encompass everything in my collection. However, it is a good start:
TOP 10 Makeup Get Started Recommendations 1. Makeup Brushes (click here) or (click here) or (click here) A good brush set will make sure your face looks polished and airbrushed. Quality must be a priority when purchasing brushes. 2. Beauty Blender Sponge (click here) This wonderful tool allows you to blend liquid, cream or powder foundation. It can be used wet or dry. 3. Makeup Brush Cleaner (click here) This all natural, vegan handmade soap will clean your brushes and sponges with ease. I haven't found anything remotely close to the simplicity nor quality of this product. 4. Face Primer (click here) or (click here) The Becca Cosmetics Primer is great for oily skin. It keeps you from looking totally greasy by the end of the day. The Smashbox Primer is great for all skin types. 5. Eyebrow Pencil (click here) This double sided eyebrow pencil helps you create the perfect brows while looking natural at the same time. It's all in how you apply it. 6. Contour Kit (click here) These kits finish off your look with precision. Choose between Light to Medium and Medium to Tan. 7. Liquid Liner (click here) This liner helps you achieve the perfect cat liner with ease. Truth be told, this is the only liner that has allowed me to achieve that look on myself with precision. 8.Mascara (click here) This mascara gives you the look of having false lashes on without all the work. I absolutely LOVE this stuff and haven't found another mascara to replace it. 9. Eyeshadow Palettes (click here) You get four awesome eyeshadow palettes for a very reasonable price. Make sure you always use concealer or an eyeshadow primer to make the colors pop and last all day. 10. Eyeshadow Primer (click here) This reasonably priced primer will allow your eyeshadow to last all day and the true color to pop.

My name is Garnett McNeill, originally born and raised in the SE section of Washington, DC, and currently a Maryland resident. I am a proud wife of an entrepreneur, mother of an outstanding student athlete and a new pet owner. My professional background allows me to call myself a Certified Public Accountant; but my true passion is healthy living and finding beauty in all things. Those passions have led me to pursue becoming a certified personal trainer while currently helping as many divas as I can. I also love makeup and practice it as much as possible with weddings, and special occasion gigs. Finally, my other passion is photography which I will delve into more once I get rid of this 9-5. I’m a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. and that sisterhood has taught me to be of service to all mankind. Therefore, I am paying it forward by helping as many ladies as I can in any way that I can whether it is meal prepping tips, makeup education, inspiration or just plain old checking for you when you fall off. That is what it means to be a Fit, Fyne & Fabulous Diva!!!
