Tracy Hepler, Social Media CoordinatorEveryday makeup look: "I always apply light foundation and concealer underneath my eyes and over any blemishes. Then I use a cheek stain on the apples of my checks and cover them with a little bit of blush and bronzer and blend, blend, blend. Next up it's the eyes and I like to wear really simple, yet bold eyeliner underneath my eyes and on the top of my eyelids. I typically curl my lashes and apply two coats of mascara on the top lashes only. I seal the deal by applying lip color (sometimes lip gloss or lipstick or a combo of both), so long as there is a noticeable color (coral, pink, fuchsia, red, etc)."
What she feels "naked" without: "Under eye concealer and some sort of lip cover/color."
How she felt taking it all off: "I definitely feel as if I look a lot younger [without makeup] and my eyes don't pop as much as I would like them to, but I'm OK with that under most circumstances (errands, working out, casual outings with friends). If I was going out on a date, job interview or somewhere I really wanted to make a good impression, I probably wouldn't feel as comfortable. Not because I'm not comfortable in my own skin, but I feel as if I wouldn't come off as professional or as I cared about my appearance as much as I should. Yes, I've succumb to societal pressures."
