Ever since high school- which was a long time ago for me! I have heard about how great Make Up Forever makeup was. I remember hearing it was what all of the make up artists used and I dreamed about using all of the products.
Fast forward many years and now I am a wife and mommy- my life is so different- and I am still dreaming of a Make Up Forever! Through the years I have tried a couple items and loved them.
Their concealer is great- covers well. My sister loved it so much she took it from me!
I LOVE using their star powder. The light colors are so good for highlighting. I put it in the inner and out corners of my eyes and below the eye brow. It is great and there are so many pretty colors to chose from.
Up until now somehow I had never tried the Make Up Forever foundation! It seems impossible but I haven’t! I got it a couple days ago and am loving the coverage. I got the Mat Velvet foundation– and it really goes on like velvet! So smooth it blends in. You get full amazing coverage- put it on when you wake up and set with your favorite powder. It will be on and look great at the end of the day! It also doesn’t feel too heavy. I think it would be great for people who don’t like the feel of wearing make up.
Next time I want to treat myself I am getting two more Make Up Forever products:
What Make Up Forever products do you love? I for one am so impressed with the brand quality and can’t wait to get more goodies =)
I have always used lots of purples on my eyes. I thought the purples were great for my hazel/ brown eyes. I still use beautiful purples- but another color I have learned to love on my eyes is pink.
It is an easy look you can pick a pretty pink and use it by itself if you are in a hurry.
The Too Faced Bonjour Summer palette has a beautiful pink- Plumeria. It looks more intense but goes on pretty light and it is beautiful. This is one of favorite pinks to use.
You can add to the look by lining with brown and putting a light brown or copper in the crease.
Some pinks I would love to try are-
You can get all of these shadows at one of my favorite places ever- Sephora. I am going there later today with my sister and nieces! A great mother’s day gift- a shopping trip with people I love! And maybe it will include buying more pink eye shadow!
Some mornings are hard- as we all know! On Sunday night my one year old decided to wake up at least four times. Then my three year old woke up at 6. This would be okay if I hadn’t gone to bed past midnight- darn Mad Men!
My children were grumpy and I was feeling blah. I wanted to feel more awake. I did a couple quick on demand workouts and then I decided to get ready. With two whinny toddlers it had to be a quick getting ready.
I started with my favorite face cream- Eucerin Q10 anti-wrinkle- sensitive skin. It does not irritate my skin and keeps my skin moisturized for the whole day. I didn’t put any foundation or other face make up on. It is just one of those days =)
Then I needed color! I put Bareminerals lipstick in rose crepe on my lips. It is a great neutral pink. It is matte like and again stays on for a long time. It also moisturizes the lips too. Great product. Unfortunately I can’t find this color in stores anymore- but Make Your Move color of the Marvelous Moxie Lipstick would be a close comparison.
Then I felt more alive and ready to face the day with my boys in a more awake state! And it isn’t turning out to be a bad day at all!
