Fridays are a great day of the week. The weekend is upon us, and we have two glorious days to do whatever it is we want - or are committed to (haha). Whatever it may be, chances are your weekend has something enjoyable ahead. Even if your idea of enjoyable is sitting on the couch in your sweats binge watching Netflix, chowing down on some home made popcorn. I am not judging. That was more of a confession.
Moving on. In continuing with the good feelings Friday brings, I thought I would profile some beautiful women in my life on Fridays. I want to know what beauty routines you follow, and what are some of things you do to feel fabulous!
This Friday I thought I would profile my gorgeous cousin Lindsay. A busy mom on the go! Whom I am sure many of you will be able to relate to. Check out what Lindsay had to say:
Skin Type: Sensitive
What is your go to beauty routine? Wash, moisturize and BB cream! Then I throw on a little eye makeup, blush and I'm out the door.
If I took a look in your makeup bag what would I find?
Lise Watier powder (Sesame), Lise Watier Concealer Wheel (Normal), Smashbox Photofinish Eyelid Primer, L'Oreal Youth Code BB cream (Light), Smashbox Full Exposure palette, Gosh blush (though I don't love it), Stila Smudge stick waterproof liner, Sephora Kohl liner in nude (for my waterline).
If you could only have one makeup item to use everyday (deserted island style) what would it be and why?
Concealer is a must—especially after my niece asked me if I had a black eye the time she saw me without make up.
What is the best beauty product you've come across? Why do you love it?
The Lise Watier concealer palette. It’s perfect for covering dark circles and blemishes, and I use the purple shade for highlighting.
What was the worst beauty purchase you've made? Why was it awful?
Pretty much every lipstick I’ve ever bought. I’ve never found one I like. I always feel like it’s too dark or too light, and my hair always gets stuck in sticky lip glosses. I usually just stick with Burt’s Bees for my lips.
Do you have any beauty secrets you'd like to share? If so, please tell us:
Heating your eyelash curler! I remember reading that trick in YM when I was in high school (ha ha YM…is it even around anymore?) about heating up your eyelash curler with a hair dryer for a few seconds before using it to ‘set’ your lashes (kind of like a curling iron) and I’ve done it ever since.
