I’ve been playing around with makeup lately. Even before I had kids, I was never a big makeup girl. But, lately, I’ve been making more of an effort to, uh, look like I’m making an effort. I got all crazy on a trip to Target and got myself some lip stain, eyeliner, bronzer and even some eyeshadows (oooh! fancy!).
My rules for makeup purchases are pretty colors and the best possible quality for very little money. I like simple little pops of pretty color. Today was grey and rainy, so I put some color on my lips via my Maybelline ColorSensational lipstain in Cranberry Crush with Yes to Carrots C Me Shine lipgloss in Red Hot (Yes to Carrots’ lip gloss is awesome, by the way). I also wore a teeny bit of gold shadow on my eyes and a little mascara.
I’m not even gonna try to go all makeup blogger on you. There are plenty of people out there doing that way better than I could. But I’d love to hear your ideas about simple ways to play with makeup so that I don’t feel sad and raggedy.
