A Fresh Coat Of Paint

So obviously I've been lazy in the blogging world, but NOT lazy in my everyday life. With the new baby coming sooner than later, we've been furiously changing up rooms, redecorating, and of course re-painting! What doesn't feel better than a fresh coat of paint??!! It breathes new life in a room! My little girl is going to be getting herself a Tiffany blue room (actually Shermin Williams- "Holiday Turquoise to be exact) and it is turning out BEAUTIFUL!! And I couldn't resist the following switched up nursery rhyme...

(To the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star: "twinkle, twinkle, diamond ring, in a blue box tied with string, Tiffany's new princess cut, twice the size of baby's butt. twinkle, twinkle, show your spark, can't change nappies (diapers) in the dark." courtesy of This Little Piggy Went to Prada by Amy Allen
Non-concealed under eyes

Speaking of a fresh coat of paint to brighten things up, onto my new favorite yellow concealer. Nothing blatantly says, "I got zero sleep last night," or "I just got handed the bad gene card," when it comes to dark under eye circles. In my opinion, if you're not using even a little bit of concealer everyday, you're doing your face an injustice (note, my non-concealed eye beds up top). Using concealer is the easiest way to look rested in a flash!!

My concealed eye bed!!! Much Betta!!

And Cover Girl and Olay's Simply Ageless concealer in color 230 Corrector ($10)

is my new best friend!! This pot of hydrating swirled yumminess is just what the doctor ordered for my dark circles. The yellow shade is perfect for just about everybody to help decrease redness and purple shades that come from the veins underneath our eyes. And of course, for staying power I add a few swipes of translucent powder to set it after applied. Extra Tip **If your dark circles are super scary, you can always add a regular concealer than is the actual color of your skin tone on top of your yellow for extra coverage. **

This is my fresh new face after my fresh coat of yellow paint over my dark circles! Don't I look well rested?! After almost a week long of moving furniture, well not me but watching my hubby move it, putting our two boys in the SAME room and praying they will sleep through the night, this face needed some concealer and hallelujah it worked! So try a fresh coat of paint today, your face will thank you for it;-)

Does this concealer have any creasing or staying power problems? Id like to try it but I have genetic fine lines that always cause creasing.
