I love beauty products. I suck at using them. My mother is a very plain woman. I do not say that to put her down I say that so you can have a little backstory to where I am coming from here. She has very fine very straight hair. I do not. I have no idea what to do with my hair 98% of the time. It is long, it is curly, it is thick. I have never been taught. I straighten it almost EVERY day so that I can do something with it. My mother does not wear make up (not sure if she ever has either, I have seen her highschool photos.) I wear some, and like to experiment with it. But every time I experiment with it I end up looking like a clown. Sad, true, story.
Any way. I saw this and thought it was pretty cool as it is in my backyard almost, free, and you get to talk to someone.
My typical beauty routine consists of this:
Aveno Active Naturals Positively Ageless Moisturizer
That is it my friends. As you can see not only do I wear very litle, but I wear very CHEAP stuff. For me it works, but as I get older and am in a career where I feel like the same age as my students, I would like to know how to put myself together a little bit more. Also because I teach secondary I am getting ready at 5 am. Nothing says "I look like I am having a walk of shame" more than trying to experiment with new eyeshadow at 5 am...so I just leave it out.
I am signed up for Birchbox and Ipsy and I love them. I have found a few things that I really like (most notably nail polish (that is a post in itself my love affair with nail polish) and a lip stain.) but when I look at how much the product costs to buy a full size version...Let's just say It makes me want to cry a little.
So I am excited for this little night. I love Walgreens. I shop there quite a bit and am really excited for this little night. Most of the stuff sold at Walgreens is with in my budget (I am sorry I just can not justify spending 30$ on mascara when it expires in 6 months.) I am looking forward to asking questions about these following products:
L'Oréal Magic Nude Liquid Powder
Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Lip Balm and Stain
Almay Smart Shade Powder Blush
And I want to ask what is the difference between a CC cream and a BB cream, and a neutral eyeshadow set for folks with eyes like mine (they go from grey to green)
That is it folks.
What is your beauty routine for school? Is there a product you love?
