When I was getting packed to head home for the reunion I realised I hadn’t worn any make-up in about a month. It’s been hot. I haven’t been going anywhere special. Mostly it’s been me and Little Boo hanging out and sweating in the heat wave. My make-up routine kind of fell by the wayside. But it felt really nice to apply mascara again and brighten myself up before heading out to see folks I haven’t laid eyes on (outside of Facebook) in 25 years.
My make-up routine is pretty simple, and it doesn’t vary much, though I’ve been trying to experiment with some different colours. The whole process takes about 5 minutes, and focuses on my eyes. I think I look pretty good when I’m done, but perhaps I could use a little make-up revolution …
From August 17–September 15, 2013, Shoppers Drug Mart is holding the biggest national beauty event of the year - their 3rd Annual 30 Days of Beauty.
