There is a new love in my life. Actually, there are a few. I have outrageous updates to share, none of which make me feel particularly loving, particularly toward myself. Shameful moments. As I write these in my journal (and ready them for posting), please bear with me. Now, onward, to the latest makeup loves of my life.
For starters, I’ve been searching for an app that keeps a list of all my makeup colors, so when I’m out and about, at Sephora or Mac, I can quickly access the foundation color I wear, in case I need a refill. I like to know what I have in my drawers. I found one app, Glamzy, which allows me to take a photograph of a look, then label exactly what I was wearing that day, in case I ever want to recreate it. I can even email the look and photos to a friend (my sister and mother get these emails from me often). Below is an example:
NAME OF LOOK: HOT CHILI
Brows: Charcoal Brown Mac Eyeshadow with “Petite Arch” Anastasia brow stencil
Highlight: Soft & Gentle by Mac
Eyelid: Woodwinked by Mac
Crease: Brown Script by Mac
Brow Bone: All That Glitters by Mac
Liner: Lord It Up by Mac
Mascara: Maybeline The Falsies in Black Drama
Blush: Warm Soul by Mac
Liner: Kiss Me Quick Prolongwear Mac
Lipstick: Chili by Mac
As a total aside, I realize I’ve been totally missing in action, which will be explained (I’m mortified) in an upcoming post. Everyone is healthy and healing–I’m just a tad bit deranged and a bit depressed. See, while I have on makeup, I’m also wearing flannel pants, Phil’s sweater, and a nightgown. All about the layered mess of me.
Heading to Florida to visit my mother this coming Sunday, off for a week with the kids! “The warm weather will perk up your spirits,” is a stretch. The truth is, I really don’t mind the cold at all. I prefer it to the heat and I despise the sun, so there’s that.
