    A Matte Made in Heaven

    Admittedly, I love a lot of beauty products and would have a tough time choosing one particular item that I could not live without. Aside from the obvious addictions, eye-shadow, mascara and lip products – I relish the sensation of a new primer. I suspect that this is due to my enlarged pores (that I hate) and that I am always trying to remedy. I recently read an article that there isn’t anything one can really do to shrink pores and that tightening treatments are often temporary and ultimately ineffective. Made my day ๐Ÿ™ But that doesn’t stop me from attempting to diminish the appearance of my pores, even if…

I have been on a total bender even though I really do have a few foundations that I truly enjoy using, I like to keep my skin guessing since this helps temper breakouts. I am serious, it works!

    Spots & Wrinkles, Oh My

    I thought fall was in the air when I was headed to to work this morning then I went outside for lunch and was I wrong. I looked it up and there are only 104 days until Halloween, so there’s that. But if this humidity doesn’t clear out, I am probably going to shave my head. A brand that I haven’t paid much attention to since high school has slowly been making its way back into my routine; Clinique. I used their Dramatically Different lotion for years but at some point I assumed that it was just for young, flawless skin and I stopped using that and the brand altogether.…
