I am a flight attendant so I am contantly using my hands washing, sanitizing, opening cans, bottles, ect. my polish just started chipping today and I painted them on last wednesday. I also do a top coat every other day not the Seche orly no chip.

Last month, I was looking for new foundation to replace my MUFE HD Foundation (123) and searched MBB for recommendations since I’m also a MAC NC35. I wanted to give MAC’s Studio Sculpt a chance and wanted to see what Karen had to say about it.

In her Mac Studio Sculpt post, she mentioned how she used MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural in Medium to highlight under the eyes, forehead and tip of nose.

I usually just highlight on the top of my cheek bones but gave the Mineralized Skinfinish highlighting technique a try. I loved it! Really helps brighten up the area beneath my eyes (instant bright eyes) and gives my skin a healthy glow, that doesn’t look greasy with my oily skin.

In the end, I went with MUFE HD foundation because it looks great on camera and less cakey than the Studio Sculpt. However, I’m sticking with the Mineralized Skinfinish from here on out!

Thanks Karen!

I wear all sorts of not exactly natural products on my eyes and lips, but never felt right about blush. I routinely ask MUA to show me and, while I like the effect it has to shape and enliven my face, it never felt comfortable. I decided I was going to wear very light blush every day for a week. Still don’t love it, but don’t hate it anymore. I’m going to keep trying.

Less is more. Age is good. And stay away from getting up close and personal with magnifying mirrors whenever possible. Perhaps God’s invented deteriorating eye sight as you age for a very kind reason :)
