Navigating the wonderful wide world of cosmetics can be a number of things, but for me it tends to be the 3 E’s: Exciting, Expensive and Exhausting. I myself had never set foot in a Sephora before the age of 28, and I was understandably overwhelmed.
First of all, I grew up wearing stage makeup, so I know a thing or two about application, so in that respect I’m good, but damn if there isn’t a product for EVERYTHING nowadays, and every brand makes their own version. Like I said, exhausting.
For me, you can’t go wrong with a light concealer, a little mascara and a great blush, and I am here to tell you that cream blush especially is the way to go. As I get older I am switching from any type of powder to cream. It lays better on aging skin and its easier to blend. Plus I don’t end up with pesky dry patches, of which I am prone. I have two favorites that I use frequently:
The only problem with these blushes is I got them with a giftcard (once again I am cheap and could never justify spending this much of my own money of a f-ing blush) and one is a sample! What to do!
Newest solution: Use a plum lipstick I bought for those occasions for drama, and use it as my daily blush!
Once again, I am advocating for my favorite lipstick, but this time as a cream blush. I am telling you, it’s awesome.
Just a little bit goes a long way, and I love the result!
Just a hint of color, and for a fraction of the price of these great, but expensive alternatives. A true lady can get away with very little in her makeup drawer, if she knows how to use it!
