Last week it was fun to talk about skincare. Your responses were so interesting and I think we all enjoyed a peek into each others bathroom cabinets.
So to stay a bit sideways of the perfume topic once more, I’d like to take a peek into your make up bags today.
Do you wear makeup?
If yes, everyday or just on special occasions?
What are your favorite products?
I love makeup. I wear it every day. My surgeon commented on my flawless look on the way to the OR when I had my children (via C-Section). So it is a rare and usually not a great day when I am without it.
But makeup for me is about enhancement not transformation.
I am of the nude look/natural makeup school of thought, coloured eyeshadows and bright red lips are not for me.
My favorite product is definitely concealer – a good concealer is a life-saver (Clé de Peau is amazing!!!). Foundation and mascara are also important for me and I have never left the house in almost three decades without applying lipgloss.
In my handbag I carry a leather pouch holding concealer, powder, cream blush, lipgloss and of course a perfume decant, at all times.
I love luxury lines like Burberry, Edward Bess, Chanel and Dior, but my workhorse items often come from MAC.
Favorite products: Chanel Glossimer lipglosses, Dolce&Gabbana Powder Foundation, Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick, MAC lipsticks, Chanel Le Volume mascara, Paula’s Choice Resist Anti- Aging foundation, Clé de Peau Concealer.
Makeup was a big no-no when I grew up, my mother hasn’t worn a stitch of makeup in her life, so I think at least part of my use and enjoyment of it came out of rebelling against that prohibition.
What is your relationship with makeup?
