Multiple Purpose Makeup

Last week, I took on the daunting, yet fulfilling task of downsizing my makeup collection. It was something that was long overdue, because I can honestly say that I’ve only worn about 5% of the items in it.. in the past 2 years.

This downsizing was another task in my aspirations to lead a minimalist life, which is going pretty awesome.

While sorting through years of collected makeup, I realized that a lot of the products that I keep and use are products that have multiple uses and that’s why Paula Dorf’s Perfect Color stick in Ectasy made the final cut and pretty much lives in my makeup bag. Continue Reading

I wish I could say that I was off on some spontaneous exotic vacation or even just swamped by work to explain my absence. However, the ultimate culprit was just a lazy weekend followed by two snow days off from work, which equaled me laying on the sofa binge watching/catching up on shows on my DVR.
