A good night's sleep, sweaty workouts, hugs from my girls, laughter with a friend and sweet words from my husband all make me feel pretty- on the inside.
But you know what happens when I leave the house without make-up? Someone, at some point, will tell me I look tired or ask if "I'm alright".
But that's ok! I *heart* cosmetics because they make me feel pretty- on the outside.
I'm always on the lookout for new products to try, but this is what I'm loving at the moment....
I have natural curl in my hair and I love to play it up. It makes me feel carefree and a bit sassy! Brilliant Styling Creme, by Aveda, gives my curl definition and less frizz. And the scent is amazing!
When I was younger I never had dry skin- ever! Now my hands need lots of help in the dryer months. The only product to ever help me is Hand Relief, by Aveda. My hands crack and bleed without it. Everyone I've recommended it to has been pleased. A real lifesaver!
L'OREAL Wear Infinite Studio Secrets in Summer Dusk eye shadow (Walgreens) looks soft and natural with my brown eyes. I just discovered COVER GIRL'S Ink It! All Day Eye Pencil in Golden Ink last night. It adds a bit of sparkle to my eyelids which is flirty and fun! (It's also self sharpening which is a big plus for me.) (Walgreens) And my favorite mascara is They're Real! by Benefit. Seriously thickens your lashes! The trick is to gently wiggle the applicator horizontally down the lashes as you apply it. Ta da! (Sephora)
I'm lazy when it comes to foundation. I want it quick and easy! Most days I use LOREAL's B.B. Cream (light). (Ulta) It's not heavy or great and covers well. If I'm feeling extra ambitious I'll put on Aveda's Green Science Firming Face Cream first.;)
Winter weather is unkind to lips. Blistex Revive & Restore (Walgreens) adds moisture and heals dryness quickly. CHANEL Glossimer in Giggle (Nordstrom) is one of my favorite indulgences. It makes me feel special! Rimmel Lip Liner Exaggerate in Ravish (Ulta) is a pretty berry color and glides on smoothly. They pair well together.
Do share what you're crushing on right now! That's what friends are for.;)
What makes you feel pretty?
