Very rarely, more like never ever, will you catch me in public without some form of makeup on. It might be something very minimal, but unfortunately I was not blessed with flawless skin. I have skin concerns, just like the other 90% of women out there. I would say most days, when I’m running around doing errands, I’ll just slap some tinted moisturizer on. There’s no reason to get glam to go to the post office. While most errand days only call for tinted moisturizer, there are some days where you want to look a bit more polished. For example, lunch with a friend or Casual Friday at the office.
When you’re meeting your friend for lunch, you don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed, but maybe you’re in a time crunch and don’t have much time to spend getting ready. The two things that are very important when you want to look finished, but not overdone, are blush and lipstick. These two items pack a lot of punch when it comes to the finishing touches on your look.
My routine lately has been very low-key. The weather here has been sucky (to put it nicely), so things have been pretty easy-going. I’ve been sticking to using my NARS Chelsea Girls as a lip color because it gives you the perfect hint of color. You can read more about that here too. I highly recommend this color to everyone looking for a natural lip. Recently, a company called Charleston Naturally, a wonderful site that carries only organic beauty products, was kind enough to send me a gorgeous blush from 100% Pure. I only write about things I love, and this has quickly became one of my all-time favorite blushes. The blush is called 100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Blush in Strawberry. I would describe it as a dusty rose color with a hint of plum. It’s the perfect blush if you’re wanting to achieve the perfectly polished look. It doesn’t give you too much color, just enough to enhance your cheekbones and give you a pretty, subtle wash of color. Here is a picture I snapped the other day when I was wearing this lip and blush combo:
I think I’ll call this look “Lunch in Laguna.” Wishful thinking
