I've been using Clinique ever since I started wearing makeup as a teenager. Lately I just haven't felt like my makeup is doing the trick anymore. Could it have anything to do with the fact that I turned 30 a few months ago??? I'm not one to fuss a whole lot with my makeup, but I do feel that if the barn needs a little paint, then paint it! Seriously, even though I'm at home most of the day with my sweet blessings, I do think that it is important to look my best when Mr. C pops in during the day. After doing a bit of research, I decided that I would try Bare Minerals. The company offers a money-back guarantee, so what do I have to lose? (My sanity, perhaps.)
My much-anticipated box arrived in the mail a few days ago. I felt like a little girl on Christmas morning when I opened it up and saw all of the goodies inside. I have always wanted a nice set of makeup brushes, and this set has every brush known to mankind! I watched the instructional DVD and had a little makeup party with myself one evening after the kiddos went to bed. It will probably take a few days to get the application technique down, but it is not that complicated.
Yesterday I decided to put Bare Minerals to the hurry-or-we'll-be-late, get-the-kids-dressed, get-a-head-start-on-lunch, teach-Sunday-school, be-back-to-church-at-night, busy-busy-busy-day test. On Sunday morning, I scheduled a little more time into my morning routine to apply my makeup, but it didn't take much longer than when using my previous makeup. I usually do not wear eyeliner, but the Bare Minerals eye liner powder was so easy to apply after mixing it with a bit of water. Despite a busy day and warm temperatures, my makeup was still looking pretty fresh 10 hours after applied. I didn't even have a shiny nose! I did a quick touch-up before heading back to church last night. So far I am really enjoying Bare Minerals as it assists me in looking my best.
