I've been using low-end cosmetics for most of my makeup wearing life. Recently I decided that I needed to up my game a bit and upgrade to something better. I went from Almay and Revlon to this:
Yep - I bit the bullet and invested in some Urban Decay. Less than one hour at Ulta and several dollars later - I was out the door. I'd never done a makeover at one of these stores before but I wanted to have the foundation be the correct color for my skin tone. She checked three different colors before matching me to #3. A little primer, an extraordinary small amount of foundation and a great brush - and she transformed me. A little blush and bronzer and I was sold. I purchased the primer, foundation and good karma blending brush; along with some hair products and nail polish.
Needless to say, I am in love with this new foundation routine I have going on. I know it sounds crazy but I was apprehensive about the new look - but I feel like I look better. Money well spent if you ask me.
**I've had a few readers comment that I've been gone for a while and a couple even asked if everything is okay? I was burned out on blogging for a while and was getting ready to start up again in May. I even did a quick post on May 27. Later that week, my father-in-law was diagnosed with brain cancer. He passed on August 14. Now you know why I've been gone this year, I hope to get back in the swing of things soon.
