Some of my readers may be wondering…what happened to the other aspects of my blog? like beauty and hair, etc…well, I am not a theme blogger, so I blog about a variety of topics. I blog about things that I love and loathe. That being said, I realized it’s been a minute since I’ve blogged on anything beauty related. As much as I love beauty, makeup and all…I just have been in a rut. It’s an overall rut. I wore makeup for the first time in a while this weekend for my friends bridal shower. Well not the first time, but it was my first time going to one of my favorite NYX eyeshadow palettes. It was nostalgic.
I’ll tell you one thing…my rut started with my running out of foundation. And then I never refilled it because I wanted to try some others. I found one, but I’m not too pleased with it and I just have been too lazy to get around to it. It hasn’t been high on my priority list. It’s a shame when the DH starts mentioning how I don’t wear makeup anymore. I did wear a nice natural look when we went out bowling the other weekend but nothing day to day as I used to.
My aunt in law sells Mary Kay and had me over this weekend for the little demo. I’ve already been to one before, and I didn’t really want to go but I got a free mascara out of it and a confidence boost. I had to fill out the little consultation card and when it asked about skin issue I put acne. Because that is my issue. Her and the other lady there were like what acne? lol They said all they see is my pretty skin and no acne. So I pointed out a couple of blemishes and they were like “girl please”. She had those large focus mirrors so I could see deep into my skin and although of course, I see all the acne spots and marks and lines on my face…after hearing them say that, I took another look at my face and realized that my skin has cleared up well. I don’t have as many dark acne spots and the pimple that was there the other day is already gone (time of month and I used my MAC foundation ).
So I definitely appreciate the skin pick me up! And that makes it easier to look for other foundations. Since leaving Bare Minerals I’ve been a full coverage liquid foundation girl. And that was all due to acne scars. Now that they’re fading I can look at other lesser coverage options. I’m going back on the hunt for the perfect foundation. For me foundation is the setting and without the setting I don’t wear the other things, so it’s vital to my makeup routine! I’m gonna start with drugstore foundation and then will look at some other brands I’m interested in: Nars, Makeup Forever and going back to Bare Minerals.
So I said all of this to say…if you were a lover of the beauty posts…they’re on their way back! I hate that everyone has to suffer when I go thru my ruts! lol But like I’ve said in other posts…it’s all a big cycle/circle…everything works hand in hand… If I get up and get my workout in first thing in the morning, it gives me energy for my day, I get up and apply my makeup, do my hair, take a little more time in my clothes selection, get out the door, come home and still having energy to take care of the household, and I go to sleep earlier so I can do it all again the next day. And there are so many gaps and holes in my circle right now, hence the ruts…but I’m working on reversing that as we speak!
What do you do to keep yourself from getting into a rut???
