Not over doing it, but using a lighter hand to accent and emphasize your best features.
When Mr. HB and I were in Seattle on holiday I did something completely out of my comfort zone.
I sat at the Bobbi Brown counter at Nordstrom's and had a make over!
It was very early so thankfully the store was not too crowded.
"No unnecessary attention please and thank you!"
After watching the Lisa Eldridge videos I realized that I could use some help.
Choosing the shades that are complimentary to my skin tone is something that I have always struggled a bit with
also I knew that I needed a base colour on my face to cover my ruddiness from rosacea and yet I still wanted to add a healthy glow. The cosmetician was helpful and was able to achieve what I was looking for in a very short time.
My morning routine has got to be easy...
A trio of products and a foundation brush.
Porcelain Luminous Moisturizing Foundation
Fresh Melon Pot Rouge for Lips and Cheeks
Antigua Illuminating Bronzing Powder
I am happy with the products how easy they are to work with and how the end result looks natural.
If you have never had a makeover do try one
they are free and you can take home samples
having someone impartial give you advice is much easier than you might think!
If you like the products after trying them then go back to the cosmetic counter and buy them.
I wore the foundation for a day before I decided it was right for me.
Thanks for stopping by and spending a little time out of your busy day.
Have you tried anything new lately?
I've got my nose buried in a new book by an author that I have just discovered...
she has penned a dozen books!
Thanks to Julian Fellowes
writer of Downton Abbey and Gosford Park...
His comment on the front cover made the sale and I am enjoying it
it feels a bit like I just stepped inside a home like the one in Downton Abbey but with different characters.
