I don’t wear a lot of make-up. Some days, I wear left over make-up. I’m a simple gal…as far as I’m concerned, if I’ve got lip gloss of some kind on, I’m good and feel put together. My favorites are Baby Lips Dr. Rescue (Just Peachy), and NYX Butter Gloss. Love lip gloss….love, love, love! See….this is what I keep in my purse. If you want to be my friend, buy me lip gloss, I’m your friend for life.
I have been blessed with bags under my eyes, I know…. I’m the only one. So I like to wear my Bare Minerals matte foundation, just under my eyes, do a swirl around my face with the excess powder with my Kabuki brush, just to cover any imperfections. Done. The mineral powder is light and feels non existent.
Then, I like to use a bronzer, rather than blush. With blush I feel like its too pink, too coral, too red, too much for me to think about, and I’m never quite happy with the look it gives me. A bronzer gives me a warmer, sun kissed, fresh look which I prefer. I use whatever brand comes in my Ipsy bag from time to time.
I discovered purple eyeliner about 5 years ago and I’ve never gone back. I won the purple eyeliner in a TIGI gift basket, so I thought I’d give it a try, I’m a fan, and have used it ever since. The purple, gives my green eyes a pop. I need all popping I can get.
Then comes mascara. Mascara and I are not friends. I have short, flimsy lashes. I’ve thought about falsies too. I use whatever brand promises the longest, most fabulous lashes, and isn’t over $10. But I will be darned if every time I put this stuff on….I get over zealous tying to make my lashes perfect that I slap that stupid brush on my eye! So, then I have to grab the lotion, and a Q-tip and get rubbing. It never comes all the way off. Ever. You would think I would have perfected the application by now. Nope.
Seems like simple turned awfully complicated. Ahhhhh…the trials and tribulations of womanhood.
