I usually don’t post photo’s of myself. Like the Yeti, Big Foot and the Lochness Monster I don’t much care for my photo being taken. The Fancy says I am terrible at it too–word. I always either have a startled look in my eyes or a fake frozen smile (or both if I am feeling particularly photogenic). If this photo looks familiar it is only because I pose like this in every
photo. I think my nose looks too pointy (which it really is) when I look the camera straight on. If I did this shot straight on I might have cut you through your computer screen and that wouldn’t be a good way to start the day now would it? I am showing you this image because I really wanted to let you know how obsessed I am over my new drugstore foundation find–NatureLuxe by Cover Girl
. It is perfect for my dry skin, age spots and crinkly eyes (look what you have to look forward too!) without feeling heavy and allowing my skin texture to still show through so it doesn’t look like I am wearing too much foundation. All I ever wanted in life (okay one
of the things) is flawless skin. I want my skin to always look fresh, dewy like I am not trying too hard (the mascara is a totally different ball game). I still am using the L’oreal Infallible, never fail, lipgloss in Suede
, I think it’s the perfect nude lip color and you can build it if you want a more nude/opaque look (ala Bardot). I think I should buy stock in it, I have sold more tubes of that lipgloss….I am using my favorite cheek stains from Tarte for blush, I promise you if you can’t put anything else on just squash the tube on your cheeks it is instant pretty (yes, it’s as easy as a squash/smoosh, quick rub in). I am leaning towards more peachy tones lately so I have been using Tipsy
(the tube should last for like ever). If your skin tone is more on the Snow White-ish side may I suggest Flush
? It’s a perfectly rosy, natural blush. You will love it. My mascara? It’s pricey but worth every.single.swipe. I have tried to stray because I use so much mascara I would prefer to just be in love with a drugstore brand but hands down there is no better mascara for me and my oily eyes than Tarte’s ‘Lights, camera, lashes’. A couple swipes and I look like I have false eyelashes and I am sorry but that’s where I draw the line at looking natural, I want to look like a doe. That’s my thing the mascara, I am one of those
people that won’t leave the house without it (or my foundation or blush).
If I told you how old I was, I think this post would be more impressive and sell more foundation but I am not going to go there. Suffice to say that I am probably your mom’s age. I hope this has been helpful and you may have found some new products to indulge in!
