It's been a month and a half, but I'm almost there!
I've been planning what to wear for weeks now, so I thought I'd do a little show and tell.
I'm so looking forward to having colour on my face, and the longing looks I've been giving my poor, neglected lippy collection are a little obscene.
My collection has been teasing me!
The first thing that's going on my face, is some funky summer-proof eyeliner! I discovered Artdeco cosmetics last year, which you can read here, and it is an amazing line! The Soft Eye Liner Waterproof #72 is a beautiful, rich, metallic, emerald green. It's creamy, long wearing, and fun! Perfection!
Have you tried They're Real Mascara from Benefit yet? If not, it's a fab find, so you should consider bringing this baby home with you! I've fallen completely in love with this mascara. It leaves you with long, lush lashes that has remarkable staying power! It wears like a dream, and won't smudge or flake at all. Now, it is a son-of-a-biatch to remove. I found that an oil remover is mandatory, and it usually takes two applications of remover to get all of the residue. Benefit does have a remover specifically formulated for They're Real coming out soon, so that would be a great investment once it's available. Believe me, kids, this mascara is worth every bit of the trouble that comes with removal. It is that good!
The coup-de-gras for my eventual FOTD will be a bright-ass pout! I'm so very excited to wear an orange shade on my lips! I actually have butterflies at the thought of wearing this! The Revlon ColourBurst Matte Balm in Audacious is a delicious, vivid tangerine shade with a velvety finish and a moist feel. I've bragged about these before, here, and I love them just as much now as I did then!
Once I can wear these products, you better believe I'll be showing them off!
Until then, I'll be quietly making googly-eyes at my makeup cases, dreaming of the day I can paint myself up!
What trends are you excited to try?
PS- I do have to admit, that I'm remarkably comfortable without makeup these days! I don't know if it's age and wisdom, or simply necessity, but I'm much more comfy in my own skin, and that's pretty cool! I would advocate it to everyone to give it a whirl once in a while!!!
