Winter has lingered here and the sun has been nowhere to be seen for a long time.
This has caused my skin to become rather pale which in turn makes me feel a bit blah when I look in the mirror. It was time for a subtle change (actually I wanted a huge change, but spouse was like "uhm...no."
We used the same base color and then added 6 foils with a shade 4 shades darker.
Using the foils is a great way to add shading and depth. It is also easy to grow out since it is not an
allover color which leaves a very definite line of demarcation.
I loved it and it does add a depth and color around my face so I don't look so pale.
I could break down and buy a pass to the tanning bed but I have a real thing against tanning beds.
Nothing personal except for the whole gives you wrinkles and cancer stuff. lol
Since Joy left the office, I have been coming in to fill in here and there. It is not the same without her.
And The Ida misses me. I have got to tell you some great stories that she shared sometime because she is a pretty amazing woman. She used to have to pick 200 lbs. of cotton a day! Ida rocks!
Today I chose a great green (the color of spring) pinstripe shirt and cardi, then threw on a cranberry scarf for my punch of color and amber jewelry for sunshine. My photographer today is, Kaja Marie, age 9.
I told her to do whatever she wanted today with the camera. I love it! She has an eye for detail and
I think she caught a lot of that!

I have a think for amber since it is so Scandinavian like me.

With winter still underway and the sun being a "no-show" I have a couple things that have been wonderful at this time of year! Hope they help you also. To get them I usually go to Sephora or Sephora.com! I love me some Sephora! (I added the links for these products also).
1. benefit Erase Paste Without sunkissed color to my face, my dark circles have taken on a new life of their own! If they got any bigger I'm was afraid I could count them off as dependants! Then I found this great concealer! wow! It is hands down the best! Apply underneath the eye...but do not forget the "bat cave!!! This is what I call the area by the inner corner of the eye. A dot here will bring this out and make your eyes look instantly brighter.
2. Dior Addict Ultra Gloss in the new color Pink Veil (watermelon pink) #654
This is the most fabulous color in the world! I tried it on at Sephora and was a bit nervous by just looking at the color. I put it on and Joy even agreed it was amazing! It added a great glow and it such a great gloss!
Heaven in a tube ladies!
3. Hello Kitty perfume- Hey don't laugh! Have you ever smelled something and thought it smelled like spring? Or reminded you of something wonderful? When I was checking out at Sephora I got a whiff and was like "Hey, this is springy and fun!". So that's what I am wearing today!
4. Too-Faced Glamour Gloss in Plush (its volumizing and this color is well suited for everyone)
I know, I already put up a lip gloss, but this is sunshine in a tube. And you can wear it alone or over a darker color. So there. Besides, Lipgloss is my favorite thing!
What products do you love?
