Okay, so I'm realizing more and more that you (my loyal readers!) enjoy my more personal blogs. So here ya go, some before and after makeup photos!
Obviously my life not only consists of dealing with beauty products, trends, product reviews, how to's, and such, but it is much more complicated than that. Like all of us females, we deal with a variety of issues in work and life in general. My life includes my mommy duties (challenging moments and wonderful precious moments!), wifely duties (please don't take that the wrong way!), house cleaner, cook, doctor, problem solver, good friend (hopefully!) and makeup artist (my side job after all this is in place!).
Today was one of those days where makeup took 2nd, maybe 3rd place to all that went on while dealing with my sweet little angels. I figured I would share what I look like after a days work of being a stay at home mommy: going to the gym-(NOT a New Years resolution bc I don't like setting myself up for failure;-)), sitting through an excruciating visit to the barber shop to get my littlest one's haircut (he screamed the entire time, exhausting for us both), and trying to pull down all the fire alarms in my house bc they wouldn't stop going off...during nap time mind you!! Shoo wee, it was a trying day.
Notice the picture up at the very top which is of me and sweet calm baby Walker with tons of makeup on- isn't makeup a miracle worker as well as a good photographer (thanks to Abbey of Dylan Blue Photography)?? And then see this pic right above which is after today's events and tantrums! Notice W's new haircut, I couldn't believe the skills Susan at Mr. Haircut (in downtown Athens) had to actually get this hairdo after all his flailing and antics! She's amazing.
I literally only had time to put on my Clinique long wear lip gloss in "guavagold" ($14), mascara, and Tarte cheek stain in "tipsy" ($30) bc my skin is so dried out I need to wear cream blush instead of powder ones. But I survived the day and after it's all said and done, nothing cures a bad day like a sweet genuine smile and hug from my boys. "Hang in there" and "Don't sweat the small stuff, because it's all small stuff" were my two mottos for the day!
