I try to wear less makeup overall–I stick to tinted moisturizers and cream blushes, and then I set it all with powder. If you keep a blot powder in your bag, it can help freshen up any makeup that’s been hit by humidity, too.
NARS Orgasm–it’s pretty, don’t get me wrong–but Le Metier de Beaute’s Echo does it better, in my opinion!
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!
