Rise and shine, morning glories! It’s going to be a beautiful day. Grab your warm morning beverage of choice, say “eff it” to all the stresses in your life, and sit back for some frivolous beaute-ronomy with this brief look back in time to October 2008.
Here were some of the things we were talking about then…
- Wedding Palette Auditions: Stila Cover Look No. 2
“For this go ’round of Wedding Palette Auditions I thought I’d try a gold eye with light cheeks and pink lips using another Stila palette, Cover Look No. 2. Let me know your thoughts.”
- 11 Great Makeup Wipes and Cleansers
“A few days ago I reviewed L’Oreal Skin Genesis Wet Cleansing Towelettes with BHA. A few of you gals then offered up your fave makeup removing wipes and cleansers in the comments. Here’s a list featuring your recommendations and why you love ’em!”
- How Do You Wear Red Lipstick? Tips and Tricks
“Like the Ol’ Faithful of lip looks, a red lip is one of the most reliable, fool-proof ways to steal the spotlight. But red and other bright lip shades can be challenging colors to wear. My secret to wearing reds like Lancome’s Absolute Rouge ($29) is to apply them using a MAC 316 Covered Lip Brush ($19).”
- Cargo Blu Ray Pressed Powder: Ready for My Close Up, Mr. Deville
“Cargo infused Blu Ray with softening agents, like optical blurring and photochromatic pigments, which, according to the company, reduce the look of fine lines, minimize flaws and cover imperfections in a variety of lighting conditions.”
- Get Smudgy with Stila Kajal Eye Liners
“Mirror, mirror on the wall, which eye liner’s the smoothest of all? Stila’s Kajal Eye Liner ($18) lays smooth smack-down on pencil liners that tug and skip along lash lines. Available in eight shades, it literally glides across the skin, creating solid, intensely colored lines — no muss, no fuss.”
- MAC Adoring Carmine 3 Rose Lips: A Pink Lipstick Double Play
“The 3 Rose Lips set ($35.50) from the MAC Adoring Carmine holiday collection makes my pink lipstick-obsessed heart flutter. Yeah, you might think the red patent bag looks a bit cheesy — it’s more dominatrix than happy holidays — but if you can overlook that, this lip set is totes worth your attention.”
PROJECT MOVING TO NOVATO: Nothing really exciting to report, just moving load after load of boxes. I have the easy job; I pack stuff up and stack it by the front door. Then, El Hub carries the boxes down 15 stairs, around a brick wall and out to where the truck is parked.
Between us, El Hub’s lookin’ pretty tow’ up this morning.
I ended up keeping tabs on Tabs here at the apartment one more night. I didn’t feel right leaving him at the new place last night while we stayed here at the old place waiting for the movers this morning. Looks like his first night at the condo will be my first night there, too.
Anyhoo, enjoy your day. I’ll keep in touch through my phone until I hook up my computer at the new Makeup and Beauty Blog HQ this afternoon, LOL!
