Well, besieging is maybe a tad overdramatic…
Naw, it’s fine.
Let’s see… Other than finding new ways to stuff even more lipsticks and glosses into my bag (#truth), the beauty issues currently besieging my mind are…
Finding skin care products that actually work on my fine lines and wrinkles
First, I’m totally cool with looking my age. I’ve been through a lot in my 39 years, and
I like I’m OK that it shows on my face.
But I wouldn’t say no to a new kick-@ss anti-aging eye cream!
I’ve been using a non-acidic daily peel, Pericone MD’s Blue Plasma Orbital, at night for the past few months, and it does a good job on the tiny bumps on the skin around my eyes, but my fine lines are still just as fine as can be!
The stuff also dries out quickly in the jar once it’s opened, and it’s not cheap ($65 for 0.5 ounces).
Brows, brows, brows!
Ha! Sounds like a chant from a Dr. Seuss book.
Even though I’m satisfied with the current state of my brows (they’ve taken FOREVER to grow out) and have fully accepted that the bald spot in my left brow, aka Raul, will never leave me, I feel like I’m always looking for the next best way to get them looking full, yet natural.
It’s a never-ending story, but a great pair of brows sets the stage for your makeup.
Covering up dark circles, aka finding the ultimate under-eye concealer
I want one that does it all! — the One True Concealer. One that brightens, covers completely, lasts all day long, looks and feels lightweight and doesn’t crease or settle into my fine lines.
I’ve been using MAC Pro Longwear Concealer for years, and it gets the job done, but there’s always room for something better, ya know?
Probably TMI, but I have these really annoying stiff hairs on my chin, and there’s like a whole gang of them, too. Not just one.
I would love to find a way to vanquish them permanently, because I am hella tired of plucking them.
