I kinda had to modify this a little because I don’t use MAC products because 1. I’m cheap & 2. I don’t know where MAC products are carried in my area!
Remember when I posted about how I knew nothing about doing my hair/make-up/wardrobe before I met my best friend?
And remember how I blogged about my beloved CHI and I only knew of its greatness because of Stephanie?
Well, the same is true about make-up.
I very rarely wore make-up until a few years ago.
Partially because I never wore it so people (including myself) didn’t realize how hideous I was without it. Partially because my favorite deadly sin is sloth and if I had to choose between sleeping in an extra 5 minutes or putting paste on my face, I chose sleep.
Then one day, Stephanie did my make-up (alá: 4th grade sleepover style) and I realized how much better I looked with even color (rather than the normal blotchiness I was previously sporting) and a touch of pink on my cheeks. I found a Mary Kay consultant nearby and scheduled a party with her.
I went in, whole hog & bought EVERYTHING.
Moisturizer? Obviously. I don’t want wrinkles!
Under eye anti-dark circle cream? Duh. I can’t look tired.
Blue mascara? Sign me up! (I really wish I was kidding.)
I don’t mean to slam Mary Kay because, at the time, it was a good (albeit expensive) fit. Brock was still an only child and I wasn’t working day shift so I didn’t have to get up at o-dark-thirty to get myself & two kids (obviously with Greg’s help) ready and out the door so I can get to work on time.
Nowadays, I’m a Bare Minerals kinda gal.
I love that it only takes me 5-7 minutes to do my makeup and it looks great! No cakey lines at my jaw. No weird streaks that liquid foundation can leave when you’re in a hurry.
My favorite product?
The Soft-Focus All Over Face Colors in warmth. I use it as a bronzer and it gives you a nice sun-kissed glow minus the sun damage!
