On Saturday, I ran a couple errands with my mom and I really didn't feel like getting all made up so I thought I would show you how I do my makeup when I don't really do my makeup, if you know what I mean...
I use Benefit's Confessions of a Concealaholic. I use the lighter Boi-ing concealer over all of my blemishes then use the darker Boi-ing to blend out that first concealer. I also use the lighter color down the center of my nose for somewhat of a highlight. I use Lemon Aid on my lids to lighten them a bit, I have naturally dark lids and then I use Eye Bright in the inner corner and under the brow bone. Using a large fluffy brush, I apply pressed powder, such as Hello Flawless, mascara (DiorShow here), and a MAC LipGlass and we are ready to go. What are some makeup shortcuts you use??
On a separate note, I have to tell you about my day. I have mentioned before that I am having some issues regarding my job and just in short, I am over it. My job is pretty demanding and I think that I am just ready for a job that allows me to move on to the next phase in my life. The economy here is pretty bad and there are no other opportunities so all in all, I feel trapped. This feeling frustrates me, especially since I have put in so much hard work and money into school and getting certified.
This frustration has been extremely prevalent while I am at work, making my moods a little off, to say the least. Today I am technically in town but my client is over 100 miles from my house and the only reason it's considered "in town" is because I don't want six straight weeks of hotels. I left work today at a decent time in order to get my run in, more on this later, (since yesterdays 7 to 8 mile run ended up being 2 miles since I felt horrible). I sat in traffic and it took me over two hours to get home. I was so frustrated that I was actually crying in the car, over something I couldn't control--yes, silly I know!
So I walk in the door with puffy, red eyes and a migraine approaching and it's 7:00. At this point I have given up all hopes of going on a run. Hubs tells me the minute I walk in the door to change clothes and he will bike behind me while I run. He had just walked in the door after working all day and going to the gym for over an hour himself---what a great guy I have right!! I had an awesome run. I made it 8 miles, my longest run ever and I walked less than a mile of it. I think this run was the perfect outlet for all of my frustration. I loved it! Thanks hubs for all of your motivation!
Lastly, I got the sequin dress from Fred Flare that I mentioned here and to say the least, it's horrible. It's cheap looking and super short and don't even ask what it up with this shoulder---
I didn't realize my face showed my confusion until I texted this to my bestie and she was cracking up. Needless to say it's going back. :-)
Ok, I think I have you all caught up to my ongoings. Here's to a better tomorrow.
