These kiddos are just everything! They keep me laughing and make my heart sing!
I also tried a new makeup technique. I have an oily T zone and my makeup tends to slip off in an oil slick on my nose. Yes, I’m over 40 and this is still happening 😝.
First I put primer on my face except my nose. Then I put concealer, then I stippled in foundation and followed up with more concealer just around the flares of the nostrils and on the sides (I wear glasses). Once I blended it out past the time you would think to stop. I then sprayed my beauty blender, dipped it in translucent power and then pressed it into my nose until blended. I then finished the rest of my makeup the same.
Then I created a new intro for my videos. I’m so happy with it! My dad’s song is the music called Rise. You can check it out here!
We ended the night with pizza, movies and cuddles. It doesn’t get much better than this!
Hermes is recovering famously! He’s an awful good cuddler.
While we were out I fell in love with these cute note pads.
Too much fun! We can make the most mundane things fun! I got this great shower cap at the Dollar Tree! Any time I get to spend with my loved ones is good!
Anyway, I hope you all have a fabulous night! Make the most of of the mundane. After all, this is what most of life is made of. The time in between the big things. Cherish these moments with the ones you love. You will never get them back. 💖
I had quite a day today! First thing this morning I had to take our little Hermes to be neutered. He’s recovering well! The hardest part is keeping him from doing too much.
Once I get him situated I ran to Kendall Yards to workout in the gym. Since I work in Kendall Yards I get membership to the gym. Since I had an appointment at Spa Paradiso with Sydney our esthetician I was able to steam and use the Swedish showers. We don’t have to talk about how I somehow turned the water to freezing and popped the lever off. I fixed it all back and ended up with a nice shower. Even if things started a little hairy to begin with.
I will update with how well my makeup goes on and looks tomorrow.
What else would you like to see me get done? What would help you?
So I have hooded eyes. To be honest, I didn’t know what this even meant. My eyes don’t have hoods! Oh! But they do act as a hood over my eyes. While this happens naturally as we age, some eyes are just born this way.
If you look at my eyelids, they hover over my eyes covering some of the mobile lid. There are hooded eyes that cover more and less. There is nothing wrong with your eyes if they are hooded. This is just something to keep in mind when applying makeup.
I go above the crease more so that my eyeshadow shows. When I put my eyeshadow on as those without hooded eyes, it looks like I only did my mobile lid. So I have to be a big more dramatic about it.
I do like doing a cut-crease like I did in this picture. If you’re interested, I can make a video on eye makeup for hooded eyes. Let me know in the comments if you’re interested in hooded eye tutorials.
When do lash extensions or strips, hooded eyes call for longer in the center and shorter on the sides. This will bring the eyes out and look the best. Obviously, you do whatever you feel makes you look your best. These are merely suggestions.
So often we think “no one will notice if I just..” (insert whatever cheat here). Whether it be eating that cookie, or skipping our workout or that last lap on our run. Who are we kidding? Who are we cheating really? The truth is, the only person that is going to suffer is ourselves. Someone does notice and it matters. When we can realize that every bit does count and it counts for us individually, we will start winning.
My son is in kindergarten this year. He’s learning about peer pressure. The other day, a little boy goaded my son into a poor decision. This was a great learning opportunity for my boy! He learned that just because someone else makes it sound appealing and says it’s ok, he’s the one that will pay the price. This is when being different is a great thing. We are all the same and each one unique. Life is a funny dish that way.
When we say the line “Maintain your lane” we are often thinking about other people minding their own business. What if we took that and used it to get tunnel vision about achieving our goals and not worrying what others are doing or saying about us? In this way, we can find success. Too often we concern ourselves with “what does she/he think about me?” or “They said something behind my back”. Taking a note from Martha Graham when she said: “What people in the world think of you is really none of your business” will help you to stay focused. The other day in class one of my classmates kept catching my eye, she thought I was talking about her because of that. I was talking about how much I adore my neighbor to the right of me but because our eyes kept meeting she misunderstood. I think I’ll try to straighten that out tomorrow.
The truth is people are always going to have something to say, everyone seems to have an opinion about how others should live their lives. Don’t worry about it, stay on your own page and work towards your own success. This is not to say that you shouldn’t help others. I love to share my knowledge so that others can find the path to success. But I do not get involved when I hear others gossip. There is never a good in that. Just don’t bother.
I hope we all succeed! I hope that we can all be our best selves and do what we need to achieve our own goals. When we focus on ourselves, we do help others. Our gift in this world is developing our passions and giving it back to the world. Don’t be selfish but don’t give everything you have to everyone. Discernment and believing people when they show you who they are is an important part of all of this.
I just got my new lavish concealer! And to tell you the truth, I would have bought it for the super cute container! I’m pretty sure I actually squealed😋! I don’t know if my pictures do it justice.
When I tried it, I loved it more! Not only is it super cute, but it’s functional! The coverage is medium and build-able. I have A simple container can make me feel luxurious! Isn’t life too short to feel anything less?
The coverage is buildable. I have pale skin and the tint worked well. I will say it is a bit on the dry side. The dryness worked for me to create a lovely natural matte look. I have oily t-zone but I’m over 40 so I tend to use multiple products to achieve the look I want.
I am very happy with the product and the packaging!
I love playing with beautiful things! Have you tried this concealer? What did you think? Are you interested in purchasing? Let me know!
