I’ve been thinking about my New Year’s resolutions for awhile. After all, I can’t just make decisions for the whole year in one day! While there are plenty of non-superficial goals I have for this year, I thought the beauty related ones would interest you all more. Here’s what I want out of my looks this year:
A long time ago in a DermStore far, far away, I picked up a jar of RedPoint’s Airbrush Effects Blushwhip in Glow, a peachy-pink shade. At first glance I thought to myself, “this is going to get messy.” The crèmelike consistency of the product isn’t what I usually favor, but I’m not one to judge a product by its cover (only its coverage!).
Applied with your fingers, Redpoint Blushwhip is supposed to give a sheer, natural, radiant glow. I was impressed with the results. The color easily blended into my skin, making it look very natural. Because of the consistency, it did make me glow, in contrast to the matte look you get with powder blushes. My complexion was flawless. It was a very satisfying experience, with only a couple of drawbacks.
Publicly wishing yourself a happy birthday on your website is probably generally considered tacky.
Let’s face it, folks: we’re in the age of social media, self-publishing and more food for our collective narcissism than you’ll find at Golden Corral’s Sunday afternoon buffet. That fact means you have to listen to me and every other blogger bathe in self-absorbed (and self-directed) banter celebrating the anniversary of the day I debuted pink and slimy on this earth.
It’s during the middle-aged years that adults grow wiser, having learned from their previous mistakes. The middle-aged years is also a time when adults start seeing the results of their food choices. Stomachs may begin to balloon, thighs widen and hips thicken. However, diet isn’t the only culprit. Stress also plays a role in what an adult’s body looks like after she enters her middle years. Exercise is one option to slim down, getting back to earlier sizes. But, it’s not the only option.
