Every once in a while, a girl needs a makeover. Hell, every once in a while, a guy needs a makeover too.
You just get to that point where you hate all of your clothes/shoes/makeup/bedding/furniture/food in your refrigerator/socks in your sock drawer.
Yes, sometimes I hate my socks and need new ones. Okay, it only happened once. But I really did decide that all of my socks were gross and felt the immediate need to throw them all away and buy new ones. $25 dollars and many new pairs of socks later...I felt like a new woman.
This time, it was makeup. After having a baby, and nursing said baby for a year, I just didn't look the same anymore. And I felt like my makeup wasn't working. And I thought that I looked tired all the time, though I really was not tired.
One day I was feeling like I looked particularly pale-momish-tired and...as if she read my mind...my friend Kristin posted about her favorite makeup: Mama & Mou
It was a sign. The last time I went to a makeup counter, had my makeup done, and bought a whole new regimen of makeup was when I turned 18. My best friend's mom gave me an awesome gift, a makeover at a makeup counter and a gift certificate for a bunch of makeup. Yep, that was the last time I did this. 12 years ago. It was time for an overhaul.
So I visited Kristin's friends at Smashbox this weekend and was THRILLED! They did an amazing job, I have all new makeup, I look much less pale-momish-tired, and I feel like a new woman.
Do it. Give yourself a makeover. Even if it's a sock makeover. Because we all know there is truly no better feeling in the world than all new socks. Or makeup. Or shoes. Or anything.
Take time for yourself.
