I can't possibly be the only one that hesitates when spelling February, right? Anyway, February was a good month - stressful yes, but stress is just another day for me so I'm often more surprised when I have some kind of stress relief, no matter how small. This month, it was the imprompt weekend trip to Switzerland that kept me sane. Beauty-wise, things have been kept really simple but I've managed to gather together a few bits that have allowed me to look put together while I still have enough time to grab a coffee before class.
I have been good the past several months and haven't bought much new makeup. We are not talking about the money output translation into clothes and shoes. But when I went into Boots the other week to pick up some bits for a friend, I accidentally walked out with four new buddies in my bag. Oops.
getting recognition from cats and dogs - let's be real, an animal voluntarily coming up to you and wanting you to pet them is probably the greatest accomplishment there is (on the flip side, getting rejected by an animal is also the worst kind)
red lipstick - there's a reason I have a handful of red lipstick despite only wearing it a dozen times a year.
I have lost count of the amount of makeup tips that I've acquired over the years - from dubious websites (I will never forget the week I applied vaseline to my lashes in attempt to make them grow faster - it was absolutely disgusting), from makeup artist, from real life people. You get the idea.
I am a creature of habit - my muscle memory game is strong. Which also means that there are certain brands that I always gravitate towards on the money-breaking trips to the makeup aisles. Rimmel is definitely one of my go-tos and after going through a huge chunk of the stand, there are definitely a few stand out products.
