Contrary to popular opinion, November truly begins ‘’tis the season!” The weather gets chillier and school gets harder and right before you know it, Christmas is literally EVERYWHERE – and you gotta get busy! The last thing on the busy gal’s mind is a painstaking make-up routine, and dark colors can just enhance those dark circles we’re all trying to cover up.
Get ready to fall in love, ladies, and GO NUDE! After a little help from my friends who I deem my “face-experts,” we’ve come up with a list that will truly make you enjoy your own “’tis the season.”
I would be lying if I said I ever wore face make-up. In fact, I cannot even remember the last time I “put on my face” (as my mom likes to say), but there is one product I absolutely adore and save for the specialist of occasions…
Bare Minerals Mineral Veil ($21): This makes my skin tone even without adding any extra color or looking cakey. It makes my face feel like a million bucks with about three brush swipes!
This is an area where I got some help. My cousin is a make-up artist and says she cannot live without Urban Decay eye shadow. She pointed me in the right direction to find the perfect nude palette.
Urban Decay Naked 3 ($54): Although it’s a little pricey, this eye shadow palette has 8 nude colors included. The other 4 can be considered a bonus for when you do have the time to spice things up a bit (New Years, perhaps?).
They’re the most important feature in your face and arguably the hardest to take care of. Here are three products that you can use for any occasion.
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie ($18): This will add a little shimmer on those days you want something extra without the added time.
Burt’s Bees Lip Balm ($4): I use this stuff every day – no, more like 3–4 times a day! You can choose a balm based on your lips’ needs (hydrating, soothing, refreshing, etc.).
Hourglass Femme Nude ($30): This lip crayon goes on smooth and stays on! It is versatile enough to take from work, to church, or even on a date.
I encourage you ladies to give these products a try! All of them are wonderful and designed to bring out your best God-given features!
Until next time,
