If you read my last post, then you know I had been disillusioned with beauty (and blogging) for a bit and that now, I’m ready to rejoin the beauty world and continue to make my mark as an artist. Sometimes, you have to find ways to get yourself back into the swing of things after a long hiatus. I do this best by shopping for makeup and tools as a treat. I TRY to buy practical things that I can use in my kit but it was HARD to not to start clicking all the whimsical items available online at Naimie’s Beauty Center and filling my cart with things I may not need any time soon (hellloooo glitter paint)!
The first thing I added to my car was RCMA No-Color Powder, which doesn’t look “cakey” and compliments ANY color of foundation. Then I decided to add the RCMA VK Palette to the mix. I love getting more bang for my buck and this palette doubles as concealer AND foundation! Speaking of foundation, I am a firm believer in applying a good primer as a base before I add foundation, so I ordered more Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance Bronze (I am addicted to this creamy, shimmery bronze primer that makes my face glow). I wasn’t done shopping, so I added a Bdellium SFX Stippling Brush (you know, just in case I do any special effects makeup soon), and before I knew it, I was adding to my cart a small Skindinavia The Makeup Primer Spray (you know, just in case I’m traveling for fun and want TSA sized products). I didn’t REALLY need more lashes but the Red Cherry lashes were calling and they ended up as the final purchases for the day. All in all, I was happy with my mini-haul!
Makeup goodies truly make me giddy. I love not just having the products, but also I love what I can do with them. Creating the perfect look for a client is extremely rewarding and I”m grateful that I get to make people look and feel great. I’m also thankful for companies like Naimie’s where one can really find the products they need!
Until next time,
update: I neglected to mention my Aqua XL Eye Pencil because it was actually purchased from a different store but just added to the “new purchases” pile.
