I have a new makeup routine! For years and years I have used liquid foundation, concealer and blush. Recently, however, as I sat in the chair at the beauty shop, I was forced to stare at myself in the mirror while getting my hair cut and styled. It really looked like I hadn't put on any makeup. What I especially noticed was that my eyelids looked all kind of purply and I had dark circles under my eyes.
I commented on my appearance to my (gorgeous) hairdresser and she said, "Oh, I have that same problem." I said, "Yeah, right!" (Her skin always looks flawless so I never would have guessed she was covering up purply eyelids!
She told me to go and try out the i.d bareMinerals, which is a tinted mineral powder that you apply with a brush. She loves it and it really works for her, she said, and that was obvious!
I wasted no time since I was already at the mall. I went to the Nordstrom (my fave department store) cosmetic counter and the rest is history. I love this makeup. It's expensive, but what I bought is a year's supply (at least) and includes:concealer, base, eye brightener called "Well Rested", and blush.
I consider my money an investment in my well being, cause I look a lot better now!
