On a typical work day, I’m done my makeup routine by 6 a.m. Early I know. But that’s the life this makeup mama leads. The makeup I put on at that time is what is on my face for the rest of the day. I don’t reapply anything during the day except for lipstick and/gloss after I’ve had lunch, and powder to try and ward off the shine. That’s it.
The funny thing is I bring a whole whack of makeup with me to work — blush, sometimes bronzer, lip pencil, and other assorted things that remain in my makeup bag. Unused. I don’t know why I do it. If anything, all this makeup does is weigh down my purse. Maybe it’s like my security blanket. LOL.
So over to you. Do you touch up your makeup during the day? If so, what do you do? Do you bring makeup with you when you go to work/school/out & about and do you use it all?
Victoria from Lily loves Lola just did a ‘share the love’ post about a new blog she was loving. I think this is a great idea as there are so many cool blogs out there that deserve our attention. I’m going to call this Fave New Blog of the Month. I’m not saying these are new blogs per se but they are new ones that I follow. For August, my vote goes to Fresco Phyrra.
Phyrra does the most AMAZING FOTDs that are unique and inspiring! I just came across her blog this week and so glad I did.
And it’s been mine ever since. When I was buying it, I remember the sales girl at the counter told me, “‘if you take care of a good brush like this, it will last forever.” Not sure if it will last forever but I must say I’m pretty pleased that it has lasted this long and is still very usable!
I wonder if the brushes we have now will stand the test of time…..Anyone else have any ‘old’ MAC brushes?
I was just reading comments in the post I did about Mekong from NARs and it made me think. For all of us in our makeup loving community, we see more in the new product launches than the average person. We can see what is ‘dupeable’ or what is really unique. And we can see that a brown shadow is not the same as the next brown shadow.
For instance, in the post I did about Mekong, for those with an untrained eye, or those who aren’t into what we are into, the shadows are simply brown. But we know they are not just that. They are different.
And it’s that difference, no matter how small, that inspires and excites me. That’s what makes it fun. Some people probably don’t get why we do it. Some may even say it’s wasted money.
But you know what? It makes us happy. And it has brought us together in this amazing community. So there.
