So right before my most recent trip back home this summer, I suddenly realized that I had been wearing the WRONG shade of foundation for the past year+ (cue horror music now). Now normally I wouldn’t care. But I was going back HOME. To people that I actually care about (husband and daughter are of course relevant, but also irrelevant.. they love me no matter what).. so how am I going to go out in public with pink-face? After probably 20+ trips to 5 different Sephora’s as well as Macy’s, Nordstrom & Dillard’s (I tried EVERYTHING from Givenchy to MAC to Stila) and 2 months AFTER my trip, I finally realized that, hey.. foundation just isn’t my thing. I couldn’t find a shade that matched at all. Not ONE. Why? Because I don’t need all that coverage! Why didn’t I realize this before? Because I didn’t know any better! So now, I’m stuck on tinted moisturizer. For over a month now! So I know this is the one.. MY holy grail (Sonia Kashuk for Target, by the way). Needless to say, my makeup collection has MUCH grown. I used to care less, as long as my blemishes were covered, but due to my horrific experience this summer, I’ve become a bit of an addict. It’s a blessing and a curse. Now, I’m working on my eyeshadow application.. because it’s hard for me not to put it on like a 5 year old. This is something I may never master, but I’m not going to give up, dang it. Until then..
