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!
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!!
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
