I’m not a make-up kind of gal. Mostly I just I wear lip balm when my lips feel chapped, or the sunblock type when I know I’ll be outdoors all day. Make-up has just never been my thing. Last month I turned 40. I spent the actual day of my birthday taking care of a sick kid and cleaning up puke. Woohoo, wasn’t that a party. Thankfully by the next weekend she was feeling better and I was able to ship the girls off to my mom’s for the night and slip off for a night out with hubby.
In honour of my 40th, I broke out the lipstick, the mascara, the works. It’s true, every once in a blue moon I feel like getting dolled up. A birthday’s a good excuse, right? When I do decide to dip into the make up bag here’s what I go with:
|It shouldn’t surprise you guys too much to discover that my make-up bag is stocked with P&G products from Olay and Covergirl.|
- The Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Anti-Aging Eye Cream Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush – my secret weapon in the fight against dark rings under my sleep deprived eyes.
- Covergirl Flamed Out Shadow Pencil – I’ve discovered I really prefer the ease of the pencil on eyeshadow vs the brush on type.
- Covergirl Clump Crusher Mascara – It lives up to the name, giving my lashes volume and definition with zero clumps.
- Covergirl Colorlicious Lipstick – When it comes to lipstick I’ve always been a fan of Covergirl. The new Colourlicious line is no exception, providing long lasting coverage that doesn’t leave my lips feeling dried out.
