Feeling Hungry At Sephora
Is going grocery shopping pretty much the same thing as shopping at Sephora? The first, you go in hungry, you fill up your cart, the second, you go in hungry, maybe a little insecure about your youth and beauty, and you fill up your cart.
I think I came up with the perfect ingredients while at Sephora. Tinted moisturizer, add a little lip stain, and top it off with a good mascara, and you have the perfect recipe to leave the house.
We all remember the Bare Minerals Commercials. I never bought into it because it was all about swirling the brush oh so perfect into the powder. I felt they were challenging me. But the company has really branched out. This new tinted moisturizer has SPF 30 and is an easy every day go to with enough shades to suit anyone.
We as women will always be on a quest for the perfect lipstick. Forget that spiritual quest in Eat, Pray, Love. How about Try, Wipe, Reapply? Lipsticks can completely change the look of your face. I like this one from Yves Saint Laurent. It’s one of their glossy stains and this pink called Encore Rose 17 gives just the right kick.
Mascara is a very personal thing. The size and shape of the wand, well, you get it, it’s your choice. Some like it big and thick, others thin and long. (I seriously may be the most immature mother I know.) This one from Makeup Forever, Smoky Extravagant, recommended by my sister in law, takes my short lashes, and makes them much more dramatic. When you are not really wearing much eye makeup, you can load on the mascara. It helps the tired look we all can get from time to time.
That’s it for my shopping list today. And of course, no one paid me to go shopping. Wouldn’t that be awesome though?
