Let’s Talk Make-Up

12 Jul

Hi friends!

I’m back in action! I’m fully recovered from this past weekend and ready for the up coming one!

I’m not much of an eyeshadow person, just give me a slap of color and I’m off but the other day I had the urge to go out and bring my makeup to date.  I was looking around my makeup and no bueno! I had makeup since about 1995!! That’s when I knew there was something wrong with me. I went from a few department stores to Sephora came home with a few items take a peek.

After 10 years I finally realized I need to stick with pallets, they make things easy. I mean how can anyone go wrong with a professionally hand picked pallet of sophisticated colors!!?? Well, if your anything like me, it’s possible. But! In my defense I started playing around with the color and soon I fell in LOVE. So you think I have too much time on my hands ehh? Perhaps, but what if I told you I watch about one hour of T.V a week.

These brushes were meant for me. Their engraved with concealer, blending brush etc., I told you these were meant for me, I can never go wrong with these!!

I’m one of those girls who says, I’ll wash me brushes later. I know, I know that’s not too healthy on the skin, and coming from someone with my skin it’s not a good habit. But we’ll talk about my skin on another post too much to talk about here.

The best concealer, talk about coverage. I have black circles under my eyes, but this stuff makes wonders, use a concealer brush instead of your ring finger you will see a dramatic difference. I swear by this lip balm !!!!!!!!!!!!! What I love best is it doesn’t get sticky and it keeps your lips moisten and plump, trust me you will not be disappointed. finally Nars highlight. This goes on top of your cheek bones and on your nose, I only use this when I’m going out for the evening. It gives you a soft glow, trust me, you will become addicted to it.

If your anything like me, you need coverage. I have a lot of acne scars and this seems to do the trick. I only wear this during my night outs with the honey. During the day it’s all about mascara, some powder and a bright lip and I’m on my way.

What do you think of my first smoky eye? Not too shabby!

Hope I gave you some helpful tips.

As always, Carolina xoxo

      Sorry honey-bun. The brushes are from Sephora the “airbrush” collection. Nars, trust me! You wont go wrong. I suggest try it out at Sephora if you like then get it. But I love it! The color is “Albatross”

      FYI: if you don’t have black circles or acne scars don’t bother with the foundation and concealer I suggested it might be to much coverage for you. My sister Monica is the one with nice skin she will do a post soon about her make-up tips. Thanks hon!

        Thanks sweetie! The brushes look good I will wait for the to get here and check them out. I have rather good experience with Sephora brushes in general. I do have some acne scars and now and then some new pimple appears so that foundation tip may come handy as well šŸ™‚
