Happy Tuesday! It’s supposed to be a gorgeous day!
I am taking Emily to the orthodontist today to start Phase 1 of her braces! She’s so excited!
She’s only getting her palette expander today and then we go back next week for top braces.
I wanted to talk today all about make-up!?!?
I am not a very “girly” girl and don’t spend a lot of time getting ready in the mornings. I was never taught how to do a lot of make-up or has it been a priority of mine before. However, I have noticed with my skin getting older, I need to start taking better care of it.
I was not blessed with great skin and have a very oily and acne prone skin. I have a great face wash I use and love, but I can’t seem to find a make-up routine that I like.
Teaching 8th graders and having two daughters, I hear a lot about make-up! Highlighting, contour, clay coverage foundation, pressed powder, setting spray, fake eyelashes, etc! So many choices!
I have been YouTubing and trying to come up with better ways to apply my make-up and what brands are best for my skin.
I have come to the conclusion that everyone has their own opinion on what they like and I just need to try some things to see if I like them or not.
I know contouring isn’t for me and I need something quick and easy to do in the mornings. In the summer time I hardly ever wear make-up, so this is more for the school year.
What make-up do you love? Is there a brand you can’t live without? How long do you spend every day putting your make-up on?
I’d love to hear from you! I made a quick survey using SurveyMonkey that I’d love for you to fill out. It only has 5 questions and will let me know more about how others do make-up. If you have any other advice on easy make-up routines- I’m all ears. If y’all can’t come through for me I am going to resort to asking my 8th graders how to get a good make-up routine!
Find the survey here.
As I was looking at make-up and watching videos, this quote popped up on my IG.
Kind of stung a little and made me remember that I should be more worried about my inside beauty than the outward appearance!
I also was reminded to make sure I’m spending more time in God’s word than in the mirror every morning!
Have a great Tuesday! I’ll be back tomorrow with Wordless Wednesday.
