a few new discoveries i made over the weekend that have totally changed my routine and the way i look!
During my pregnancy I stopped wearing eyeliner daily and found that when I did put it on, it didn’t look right. I’m not sure if the shape of my eyes had changed (since I had gained so much weight) or the black color no longer fit my face, or…WHATEVER. But something didn’t look right. Even eye shadow wasn’t working as well either. The color would run or I just looked WEIRD. Anyway, I thought that maybe a light brown, khaki or purple would actually help bring out the color of my eyes while doubling as an eye shadow. Boy was I RIGHT! =)
I bought “#17: snakeskin dress” and I’ve been wearing it everyday since! Not only does it bring out the lighter brown parts of my eyes but it also helps bring out the shape and size of my eyes as well. Like a daytime smokey eye. LOVE IT. This eyeliner and some mascara is all I need now. =D oh, did i mention it’s water proof, 12 hour wear AND only $10??? I need 10 more colors at least…
i used to use a little oil treatment in hair for shine and control for years but i would have to say in the last 2 years…i kinda forgot to take care of my hair! does that sound weird? i got used to putting it up in a bun or ponytail and forgot how to style/blow dry and pamper it. as my body is getting more and more swollen, i’ve started to realize that i’m not taking care of my face or my hair the way i should. went to target over the weekend and picked up this little oil bottle and really really like it. i use a tiiiiiiny drop, rub in my hands and then run my hands through the bottom of my hair after a good blow dry. the ends of my hair look a lot healthier and more “together” than it has in months. i can’t believe it took me this long to take care of my hair! *doh *
LOVE this makeup brush!! makes putting foundation on such a breeze~~ so in the past i used a flat foundation brush but then found somewhere along the way that I liked the way foundation looked when applying it to my face with my fingers. unfortunately i’ve got a wicked pregnancy mask going on so my skin looks rough and has a lot of bumps. >.< the primer i mentioned last week (post here) plus this foundation brush have made my skin look smoother and more flawless.
i can’t believe i didn’t try an angled contour brush sooner!! i feel like such a newb! this brush has totally changed the way my bronzer/blush looks on my face and helps me apply it evenly and more precisely. then by sheer angle/design it blends into my face much better than the brush i had been using before had been doing. all i can say…is this was a GAME CHANGER in my makeup routine this week.
