Particularly through the hot, steamy times of Dallas summertime, I don’t especially care for wearing makeup of any sort. Not basis, not natural powder, not blush — nothing. It worked well well for me when I resided in Grand Junction, Colorado, but Dallas, however, can be considered a pretty demanding, high-maintenance kinda town for girls, especially professional women. Even the creative artiste types have a tendency to here decorate over. No paint-splashed smocks in public areas, please.
We have a rep to protect. I reviewed a few of Paula Begoun’s Paula’s Choice skincare range yesterday and absolutely love love love the merchandise. They’re super-light and make my pores and skin feel so smooth and well-nourished. A touch of lipstick and/or gloss, and I’m out the door. The sample I received was in a nice little black container and was enough for at least two applications. It glided on well and ingested quickly, and the color (Sheer Beige) was quite close to my skintone, albeit a wee bit darker. I would try another lighter color, Sheer Neutral, the next time.
Still, it isn’t the perfect solution which i was (foolishly?) expecting it might be. I imagine someday possessing a base or tint that would provide the kind of sheer coverage that isn’t apparent to anyone who doesn’t know me. I’ve pretty decent skin, but I’m 37 and also have got acne problems before, and with my brown complexion — scars — I could use a little of coverage easily.
