Do you ever do something that surprises you? Maybe your likes and dislikes have changed or maybe you’re just open to something new. Well that’s what happened to me. I have to admit that I was actually watching this wig review video but I noticed the lip color the girl was wearing more than the wig. It was blue! But this blue on her looked really good! So I thought I would take a look at some of the newer hues of blue, green and gray shades of lipstick. First, let’s check out blue lipsticks. [Read more…] about DO YOU BLUE?

Well hello, my darlings. I am so excited to tell you about the product that I’ve recently started using this month. I’ve written before about the condition of my skin so finding a good foundation with great coverage and a natural look has been challenging for me. I need something that isn’t too heavy or greasy. Like a lot of us, I like to appear natural without actually being natural. I also look for something that I can wear everyday and won’t break the bank every time I need to replace it.
Product of the Month
I have to admit, I started this post simply to justify the number of foundations I own. After my hairdresser accused me of not having enough self control, I thought I might see just why I did have so many foundations. Was I merely buying different ones to find the best one for me or did I really have a need for more than one foundation. In the effort to put your best face forward, is there a reason to have more than one foundation? Let’s investigate! more than one foundation [Read more…] about HOW MANY FOUNDATIONS DO YOU HAVE?

I have so much makeup and sometimes I don’t touch it for a while. Well, makeup expires just like anything else we eat or use. It’s important for us to know when we need to throw out our makeup so we don’t risk any kind of infection. I did a little research so we all could keep track of how long to keep our makeup. Makeup Expiration
I like to write the date that I open a product on a blank mailing label and stick it on my makeup products. Using the chart below along with the dates on my products, I can make sure that I don’t keep my makeup past the expiration time. The last thing I need is an infection. That is not a good look.

Imagine that someone approached you and offered you $100M to throw away all of your makeup and you could only keep one product. What would you keep?
I love to try different lipwear options. Growing up I started wearing Bonne Belle Lip Smacker . It came in different colors and flavors. The different flavors smelled delicious. They made you want to eat your chapstick. When I first started wearing lip balm, it was all my mother would allow me to wear. I wasn’t even allowed to wear lipgloss. Lip Smacker was so much fun to wear. My friends and I would bring our lip balm to school and see who had which flavor. It was fun and we thought we were cool.
Now that I am an adult, I can wear lip balm, lipgloss, or lipstick. Sometimes I wear a combination. I thought it would be fun to share my favorite types of lipwear with you and I would love for you to share yours with me, too! [Read more…] about Shop My Favorite Lipwear
My nail polish collection is seriously out of this world. I have every color for every occasion. At least, I feel like I do until I make my way to Sephora and find that OPI has released new colors. When I get my nails done, I tend to take my polish with me. I almost always have a color choice made up in my mind and I don’t want to take the risk of the salon not having my color. Plus, I have all of this nail polish at home. Why not use it, right?! I select my nail color based on the season or the holiday. [Read more…] about Shop My Favorite Nail Colors
