tomboy makeup

I decided to rep my boys this morning. They are amazing in many ways, and they also helped me cover up a truly awful hair day this morning. When you have a pixie cut, you really have to get it cut every ~month. It’s been about 2 weeks over and I hate it!

But my makeup looks nice today. And I hit pan on an eyeshadow for the first time in my life!

face: Yes to Grapefruits CC Cream in fair, Rimmel stay matte powder, Milani Baked Blush in Luminoso, WnW Fergie highlighter in rose champagne glow, NARS laguna bronzer

brows: NYX brow pencil in dark brown, Sonia Kashuk brow gel

eyes: Sonia Kashuk eye primer, Sonia Kashuk eye on neutral shimmer palette, L’Oreal infallible eyeliner in brown, Physician’s Formula Organic Wear mascara in black

BB/CC Cream Stockpile for the Apocalypse and a Review

How did this happen?! How did I give into the BB and CC cream craze and why oh why do I want Estée Lauder’s EE cream?!

Now that I’m doing Project Pan, I might as well add in a Project Tube. I’ll wear one until it’s done around the house, when I walk the dog, whenever I don’t feel like doing a full face of makeup. I’ll start with Yes to Grapefruits CC Cream.

It has SPF 18 and promises to even and brighten skin with evodia fruit. Never heard of it… but I’ll put it on my face. 🙂

And then set with Rimmel Stay Matte powder:

Review: My skin drank it up very nicely. It is the only moisturizer I used. No extra creams or serums. The coverage is decent but leaves much to be desired. It covered most scarring and redness on my forehead and cheeks, but still let my freckles show through. It attempted to cover thing-on-my-chin. It really needs to be set with powder, as the SPF makes it a bit too shiny for my taste. I’ll happily use it until it’s gone, but I won’t do much other than walk the dog and do household chores in it. And then it’s on to the next zombie from the BB cream graveyard…

take care!
