I regularly exfoliate and moisturize my lips, which helps to keep my lips from cracking–and in turn, it’s not painful to smile! I use at-home whiteners (Crest, Rembrandt, GO SMiLE, etc.) every 4-6 months to keep my teeth white(r).
Yesterday’s posts about Bare Escentuals’ new pressed eyeshadows (and your responses) had me thinking about this–I prefer pressed in general. They’re more convenient to use, less messy, and generally work better for me. I do love some loose colors, but I will say I prefer pressed!
I do, for the blog, and before the blog, I shared them with various makeup communities. Taking photos is actually what helped me improve the most, because you really learn where your weak areas are and everything looks worse close-up than it does in person – so if you can get it right on camera, it’s even better in person.
More recently, I did do my best to own all of the shades of Giorgio Armani’s Eyes to Kill Intense line-up, and I’m certain I’ll continue to purchase any additional shades they release.
