    Makeup of the day 11.20

    Let’s talk about “boring” day makeup. On days when I have meetings or court or other important things that require me to dress more conservatively, I usually tone down my makeup a bit too. I try to have it more natural, but I’m also true to myself. I still throw on a great lipstick and some eyeshadow. Today was one of those days! Moral of the story: be true to yourself!

    Makeup of the day 11.17: World Prematurity Day!

    My makeup today was inspired by World Prematurity Day– a day dedicated to raising awareness to the fact that 1 in 10 babies are born premature. Our little one was born at 31 weeks, weighing just 3 pounds 3 ounces. After a 52 day NICU stay, she came home. We feel so lucky she fared so well. ❤️ Please like & share:

    Current favorite lipstick

    I swear every time I try a new lipstick I say it’s my favorite. Lipstick for me is a necessity. If I don’t have something on my lips I feel naked. Rarely will you find me without anything at all. (Except when I’m eating because I hate the feeling of eating with lipstick on!) My lipstick qualifications and wants are pretty high, and nearly impossible to meet, but I have found one that’s pretty near perfect. It’s budget friendly, goes on easily, isn’t sticky but isn’t drying, and lasts a long time without breaking up or getting patchy. The color I’m wearing (Lover) is gorgeous and the perfect everyday mauve.…
