Beth at The Stories of A to Z has challenged bloggers to be brave and show a before and an after make-up picture along with beauty products used.
This is me upon waking this morning, complete with velcro rollers of which I slept in.
Notice my husband in the background wondering why I'm taking a picture of myself in these rollers. hee hee
Before I go on with posting the products I'm currently using, I want to give a shout-out to my favorite foundation: Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation. If you need a full coverage, long lasting foundation...then this is for you! I'm not wearing this foundation anymore. Why? Because I'm out and I'm too cheap to spend $25 on more. This bottle was actually given to me (Thank you, Gena. It lasted me nearly a year).
I'm not big on specific product brands. I usually just buy what is on sale. I have to work hard at remembering to remove my make-up at night (bad, bad girl) and I could always improve on taking the time to put on some sunscreen (and I've got wrinkles to prove it).
So, here's what I'm using today
(because tomorrow could be different):
Velcro Rollers: I prefer to wash my hair at night, let it dry, then don my rollers (hair slightly misted)
Frizz-Ease Straight Fixation: I just bought this and I like it so far. Helps keep my hair straight and not poofy.
Mary Kay Time Wise 3 in 1 cleanser and moisturizer for dry skin.
Covergirl Creme Foundation CG Smoothers: I just bought this and I like it okay so far. It helps keep my dry skin moisturized.
Maybelline Mineral Powder: I love this product which I use on top of my foundation.
Eyeshadow: Almay for Hazel eyes
Eyeliner: black Revlon ColorStay for top lid only
Avon Brow pencil
L'Oreal Carbon Black Voluminous Mascara
Lipstick: I use many brands but today I'm wearing Revlon Super Lustrous in Copperglow Berry (great moisture for the lips)
Oh, and I just dyed my hair last night (the second time in one week...Yikes!). I have naturally dark hair but I like to give it a little boost. Sometimes two boosts in one week. Ha! I used L'Oreal Hair Dye from Sally's beauty supply in Caramel along with a Volume 10 developer (which I'm told is for a deposit only, with little to no lifting power and is not harsh on your hair like the higher volume developers). I'm not a hair dresser but it sounds good to me.
Go ahead! Get your face on, too! And don't forget to post a link here: The Stories of A to Z
