Today’s Thoughts.

I have nothing to read, no television and live solely online its how I communicate with my family and friends. Its hard because I currently don’t have a home phone either. It’s something I’m working on right now. The debate really is which model I’ll get. I never thought i’d say this but I’m probably getting an iPhone mostly because I do all my music through apple. Somedays I really miss my MacBook. What a great laptop that was. So easy to use-no automatic right clicks into things…the way it looked…I’m getting ready to purchase some cool decals to decorate this laptop I was gifted. We’ll see how that goes..Etsy is incredible with the selection of decals, I tell ya!!

The weather is great its overcast-its in the 60s. low-sun/rainy day weather makeup which is a mist or two of MAC prep+ with a mixture of Charlotte Tilbury’s wonderglow and the Chantecaille just skin in “golden” underneath everything is a thin layer of dr. Jart’s teatreemint moisturizer which is lightweight but perfect. I quit using Koh Gen Do’s moisture foundation because I loved it for being more rich and the Just Skin is much richer and more my style so I will continue to purchase it because the color is great and I don’t have to reapply as much or feel dry. Downside is the price!!

I ran out of the L’ombre roll on perfume oil so I purchased the large bottle of EDT even though normally I get the perfume spray the EDT was actually really great  when I purchased the smaller one last year this year’s limited edition is really cute the sides have like this pink thick enamel design. its lovely. it smells pretty potent too just the way I want. To finish off this post, I am so happy with my repurchase of the green jar of Oribe masque. I can’t remember the name its the newer addition for the unruly hair that’s frizzy/curly ya know? well I use it once a week and today my hair looks fantastic. The great thing even the masque is like $63 I believe…you need so little to saturate your hair its kinda worth it if you’re hair is in baaad shape like mine. I didn’t even do a final step because this product is so great. I’m running out of my Korean Ryo conditioner so I was like oh fine, I will get a tube of Oribe green. I’m still on the fence about the intense moisture version over the original because the original moisture & control already works but really for 3 more dollars is much better? someone tell me!

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Foundation+Juice Beauty CC=Compliments.

I just recently got back into the Charlotte Tilbury products because I was running out of what foundations I had left and I wanted something light to blend with my favorite cc creams. I remembered how I had originally purchased the #3 shade and it was not too light but light enough that it didn’t work with my neckline but that I also loved the texture and coverage. I replaced it with a new shade and it ended up being the perfect match to mix with both my cc creams! I get compliments all the time. I share my secrets!

After trial and error I think my favorite foundations so far are the CT magic foundation  and the Koh Gen Do moisture foundation. Im always so dry, I have pore issues and from time to time acne so the bb creams dont do enough the cc creams are great but I need that mix of foundation to perfect it. So I mist my beautyblender with the Mario Badescu rosewater then blend the juice beauty cc (a darker shade called warm glow i think) and mix 1-1/2 pumps of Charlotte Tilbury magic foundation. Every one and their brother were like what makeup is that you’re glowing and Im like Juice beauty cc and this bottle of magic foundation #4. Next on my foundation wishlist is the Kevyn Aucoin stuff but..I do see myself purchasing another bottle of magic foundation. You know you love it when you carry that bottle in your purse! I will be using the long q-tip to get out what little is left from the bottle- Thank you Charlotte!
