None for me – even when I was young, I didn’t have celebrity crushes or celebrity role model. The most influence I could see happening is if a celebrity wore a shade and looked great in it, but it wasn’t necessarily an endorsement, just a look they wore – but I feel like this is true if I saw it and was struck by how lovely it looked on a non-celebrity, too! I am not, however, turned off by the use of celebrities in most cases, so it is a wash overall!
Talia (Highlight) is a medium brown with subtle, warmer undertones and a matte finish. The texture was soft, silky, and effortless when it came to blending and applying it to the skin.

I think the type of skin I have, what my skin reacts to, those are things that influence more heavily than others – I tend to stay away from anything super, super matte but also anything over-the-top dewy (I’m normal-to-dry, mostly normal these days!). I have a decent amount of lid space but find that lower eyeliner helps make my eyes look bigger (learned this from a MAC senior artist, Victor C., years ago).
Share any beauty goodies you may have picked up in the last week or so, or maybe what’s on your way or on your wish list for next week or month. 🙂
Haul: Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation and BB cream, Clarins quads and setting spray
Weekend plans: A nice low-key weekend at home, which just sounds divine right now!
What was the last show/series you binge-watched?: My husband’s been watching a lot of Fraiser (no longer on the air), so I’ve watched quite a bit with him as it is on, but I’m a terrible binge-watcher, because I can’t really stand to sit still and watch TV for longer than a half hour!
I love the return and prevalence of the bolder brow. I thought I had to have thinner brows when I was in my late teens/early twenties, and I think we have a lot more variety in brow shapes and styles these days that maybe I’ll be forever content with what I have now!
