Makeup.

3/06/2012


 
I've rearranged my make-up (of which there is very little, because very little goes on my face these days). There are always sticky little baby fingers poking around my eyes and ears and up my nose. Anyway, I found this cute little box that was my Oma's and it just makes me smile. P.S. I'm in love with the new Maybelline lipsticks I bought. Here's shot of me wearing "pink sand."


Also: My friend Nikki and decided that wearing makeup is way over-rated when you're a mom (except for the small problem of heading out into public spaces). Quick fix: Just apply some lipstick and voila. Everyone is fooled. Well maybe not everyone, but a dab of color goes a long way!

Well hello beautiful Momma! I tend to stick to Chapstick and lipgloss--I always feel so strange wearing lipstick. Maybe I will try out a natural shade to experiment with :)

Your make up box is so pretty; I love how you have your lipsticks + essentials all neatly stacked up! That shade of lipstick looks great on you - I love wearing just a hint of colour too xx

Oh my goodness I LOVE that box. What a great idea to put your makeup in it. It's always fun to use stuff we already had differently to make things better =)

So gorgeous! You don't need makeup anyway! ;)

You are so organized and I agree. Lipstick makes everything better.

Rachel {Da Paura ♥} said...

I agree! I apply lipstick and mascara and I'm set! :) Also we are lucky to live in San Diego for that very reason -- not much makeup really needed in this beach town :)

I don't wear a lot of makeup either. But I don't leave the house without mascara because of my blond eyelashes. And sometimes concealer if needed to cover an acne spot. But your beautiful you can go bare all you want girl.
