Sharing is Caring: If Makeup Foundation Was a Woman

September 25, 2015

I was thinking about options for today’s stay true to yourself Friday posting and I came across this great article by Veena that I had to share!  

If Makeup Foundation Was a Woman

Her article is a personality analysis of women based upon their type of coverage choice in a foundation.  Her article spoke to me on a few levels: 

  • I own 7 liquid foundations (includes 3 BB creams)
  • 4 powder foundations 
  • 1 compact foundation
  • 5 concealers
  • I am definitely a medium to full coverage woman 
  • HD foundation by Eve Pearl is my new best friend. Covers everything and looks natural. 
  • I am a bit of both personalities described in the article.

Allow me to elaborate on the last point. 

There are days, especially weekends when the real me comes out and I have a more natural look. If I am at home, entertaining family or friends, a little BB cream and I am off to the races. I am my fearless and most open self. 

During the week at work, I like a more natural eye shadow color, however foundation, blush, lipstick are in full force. Coverage, coverage!  I want to look good and feel confident. I want someone to look at me and see a woman who is pulled together and sharp. No flaws visible here!  

Red lipstick of course!💄

A party, wedding etc, I go full throttle makeup, I use make up to bring out the best me I can be. I love full on glamour!!  

I attended a wedding this past weekend and I wore not only a HD coverage foundation, dark smoky eye and a nude lip, but also a hair 23″ ponytail hair extension!  49 and Almost Fabulous Here I Am!!

 

2 Years Ago I Would Not Have Been Brave Enough to Try!


This extension is from Hairdo by Ken Paves and it was so easy I was able to attach it to my hair myself. It comes with 2 Bobby pins however, you definitely will need more. It’s heavy!  This was the first foray into extensions for me. I am definitely looking for more,  so if anyone has any good suggestions send them my way.  
Last but not least I prime and top off my makeup with Primer and Bridal Setting Spray duo by Skindinavia.  It is the BEST and my foundation, blush, eyeshadow do not BUDGE all day. 

I went out after work last night to a reunion of my former colleagues and all I had to touch up was my liner and lipstick!  I put my makeup on at 5am!  At 5pm, it still looks flawless. The wedding look above was perfect until I washed it off.  I kissed a lot of people hello that night, my makeup didn’t move. 

I hope you enjoy the article. Thanks Veena. It’s Friday and here I am, a mix of fearless, secrets, bravery and glamour.  It’s so much fun to be a woman!  💋~Miranda
