With apologies to my male readers, I’m going to share some favorite cosmetics items with my readers of the fair sex. I’m a low maintenance kind of gal. I don’t like to spend too much time fussing, and after I have done some fussing, I don’t want to do a bunch of retouches through the day. I also don’t want to spend a small fortune to look good.
Anyway, I’m using a few things that are so good, I want to share them with others.
First up, Cover Girl’s Outlast All Day Lipcolor. Because I don’t think about touch ups, lipstick that lasts is really important, especially when I’m at a conference. I’ve tried the long lasting lipsticks in the past and hated them. They made my lips feel so dry. Then two or three years ago, some writer girlfriends did a shout out for Cover Girl’s Outlast. I gave it a try. Love it. Love it. Love it. This stuff works, and it doesn’t dry out my lips. My favorite colors are #553 and #558.
Next up, Loreal’s Bare Naturale’s mineral foundation. The minerals are good for your skin. It is easy to apply, and it looks good all day. I’ve also used Maybelline’s Mineral Power foundation. I like it too, but it isn’t quite as convenient as the Loreal brand which has the brush “built in” to the container (easier to travel with). Both companies have mineral blushes as well. I use Maybelline’s Mineral Power blush in soft mauve. It’s perfect for my skin tone.
Last but not least, help for the eyebrows. For many women of a certain age, the eyebrows begin to thin out. That’s happened to me. I’ve never cared much for drawing new brows with the old eye pencils. Enter The Body Shop’s Brow and Liner Kit. The powder is brushed onto the brows with a stiff brush and it looks very natural. It helps my eyes stand out, and for me, it is all about the eyes.
So there you go. My recommendations for the beauty regime.
How about you? Any recommendations for your girlfriends?
