"For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone."
Hi Friends! This post is part of the BlogHer Life Well Lived series. I get to write about my favorite beauty tools. Woo Hoo! When it comes to beauty, I'm drugstore with a dash of department store.
Here are my 6 Favorite Beauty Tools:
1)Cetaphil: It's not flashy… but it's not irritating either. I wash my face with good old Cetaphil at least 2x a day. It's very gentle and paired a good washcloth– it gets the job done!
2)Neutrogena Sensitive Skin Lotion: Acne? Check. Wrinkles? Check. I need a face lotion that won't make my situation "worse" LOL. This lotion does the trick.
3)MAC Makeup: I've been using MAC since the early 1990's. When I worked at the local CBS TV station, it's what all the female anchors used. Even though I couldn't really afford it– I felt like good makeup was worth the money. I've been a fan ever since. Current favorite product: MAC Cremesheen Glass in "Over Indulgence." It's a light browny-peach color and works great for running around and ferrying kids. Just enough color to show I made an effort.
4)Maybelline Great Lash Mascara: Cheap. Effective. Preppy pink and green packaging. Love it.
5)A FlatIron: My hair is really wavy. Depending on how much time I have in the morning (and whether or not it's raining– in which case, there's no point) I will straighten my hair. This was a drugstore purchase.
6)A Sense of Humor: I'm in my 40's. I don't look 20 and I'm ok with that. I like to tell myself that as my skin has thinned out my "dimple" (ok it's more like a cheek crease) has gotten deeper. That sums up my feeling about the aging process.
