Hello, hello! I am sorry I've been missing for a couple of days; I realize that isn't like me. They've been rough ones, but I'm back to my usual daily posting and have so many things to share with you this month! In fact, I made a very long list...
First off, I want to follow up with you about this makeup post from almost 2 years ago (where has the time gone?). Since then I've given my makeup bag a makeover, based on some of your recommendations...so thank you! There were so many comments made and I wonder if any of you made over your makeup bags too.
I kept the Neutrogena Tinted Facial Lotion (a great alternative to foundation and more affordable than the well-reviewed Laura Mercier version), Labello lip balm, MAC powder and the concealer (links all below). I added a new Bobbi Brown color for lipstick, a new eyeshadow palette (I had the old one for a dangerously long time), and a different mascara. All in all it's a good mix of drugstore and department store finds, which I believe is the ideal balance; some things you just have to try on before buying and somethings you don't! Also, I recently started wearing a little blush a few times a week as it's nice to have a little color, particularly in the dead of winter. I'm still learning how to apply it correctly so if you see me and I look a little uneven, you'll know why :)
What is in your makeup bag right now? Is there anything new you've discovered? What about the perfect red lipstick? I saw a lot of that at ALT, but am not sure I can get away with it myself. Help!
p.s. I did look into the NARS blush in "orgasm" per your recommendation, but didn't feel like it was quite the right color for me. Oh and I blushed when I asked the saleswoman about it too...isn't that funny? I guess we have to laugh at ourselves sometimes, right?!
