I play with makeup every morning, especially with eyes and especially now that I have to wear a mask every day. I am not very good a recreating a look, so there will be slight variations every day.

It’s been a while since I sat down and played around with my collection. The last time was a few months ago and I created a beautiful look with the Colourpop Becky G Salvaje palette – golden shadow on the lid and and deep teal shadow on the outer corners and smoked it out. I paired it with a pinky-brown lip – Bite Beauty lipstick in Molasses with MAC chestnut lip liner. I used my usual base which is quite light coverage using the Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer and spot concealed only where I needed it. My makeup always turnes out amazing when I’m just sitting and playing with no where to go… It’s always such a bummer but great to see I got the skills!

This morning. It did not go well. I was trying to love/use up some products I have had in my stash for awhile…

Kevyn Aucoin Nude Pop – I used to love this e/s palette, but I now find the shadows difficult to work with and not particularly pigmented. It works for a sheer eye, which isn’t necessarily bad, but I have grown accustomed to better payoff.

Trying to use up my IT Cosmetics CC cream. I have fallen out of love with this one because my skin.. I love how quick it is though and I love it has a wonky undertone which seems to work for me.

Pat McGrath concealer. I find it hateful. Me and full coverage anything are simply not meant to be.

At the end of all the aggravation, I don’t look too bad ?

Sat and Sunday! Used the new ND glam palette. There’s no where to go after but ran 4 miles and rode my bike 20 miles. After each time.

I actually did yesterday evening. It was the first slow day at work in a long time and I was able to quit an hour early. I was looking at recipes and thought, I’ll make a fancy sit down dinner for the other half (he was golfing) and get dressed up like a date. I sat down at my vanity and yook time and experimented with my foundation finish, mixing with a light skin oil and my eyes playing with ND Bronze which my new customized base palette. It felt indulgent to take time and experiment. Usually I can get finished in 10 minutes…but I took the time to really thoughtfully apply my make up.

I’m dying for the magnet stick I ordered to come in. I’m going to use it to move my pans around in my palettes.

Probably a few weeks back when I brought out my trusty, well-loved Chanel Empriente du Desert and Smashbox Rosemantic. It’s been a minute.

Every single day I love to ‘play’ with my makeup and create all different kinds of looks. Today I used my Natio Golden Neutrals eyeshadow palette and I was very happy with the result.

I am a medical provider, and I haven’t put foundation on my face since February 29, 2020. I miss makeup so much but I am working crazy hours and I am
Coming home and just feel so worn out that I can’t even put on chapstick or lip gloss. I have been getting all new makeup from boxy and Fenty but unfortunately they are sitting in boxes in my guest bathroom.

Last nite! My most recent order from Sydney Grace arrived from the sale to benefit the North family and since the large empty palette was finally back in stock I got to organize my colors! They all swatched beautifully!!
