Changes in my makeup routine that make the difference

You know that period when you just have a "thing" for a couple of products, or routine and you just can't seem to change things up a little bit? Well that happens to me all the time. I have been using the same eyeshadow look for days in a row, same blush for seriously two weeks, same lip combo...because it was a look or routine that just suited my mood, or time schedule.
But there are times when I get "creative", for others these steps may seem so simple, or even normal to do so on a daily basis, but for me these are extra steps that I only make once in a while.

 Highlighting my inner corner of the eyes: as you can tell you can't really see my tear duct, so the idea of highlighting my inner corners doesn't make any sense to me, because I have to add the highlight shade to an area you can't really see. But, I also agree that this step may do the difference for an eye look.

 Correcting the eyebrows: with a concealer I clean up the eyebrow area.This way the shape of my eyebrows looks more crisp, and more perfected. Sometimes I correct the lip line area aswell.

Applying a highlighter on the top of my cheekbones...this is a step I only got into recently. I never really understood  the  beauty of using a highlighter..but let me tell you, now, I never leave the house
without applying highlighter.

And as an extra step, and the most time consuming one is to add some individual false lashes. I prefer individual lashes because they seem more natural for an everyday makeup.

What are your extra steps in your everyday makeup routine?
