Midday Makeup Crisis: SOLVED!

March 2, 2013 in I Adore What I Love
For the past, well, forever, I’ve had the same daily routine.  I’ll wake up, get ready for my work day, put on my makeup and leave the house with my face feeling flawlessly dewy, natural, and fresh.  This obviously sets the tone for my day, because when I leave the house with my skin looking & feeling perfect, I give off a much more confident self aura. As one should, of course :)Fast forward to 10:30 am, the first second that I get to use the restroom since entering the school building.  I do my thing, wash my hands, and look in the mirror…  initial thought at what I see: GROSS DANA, GROSS!My face looks greasy and pale, as if all my makeup has come off and left me with an oily mess of a nose, and/or really disgustingly dry cheeks that show every single flaw I attempted to cover up just a mere 3-4 hours prior.The point of this post: I found a cure!

You see, I’ve always thought it was my makeup, but that’s not true at all.  I started using Tarte’s BB Tinted Treatment Primer and let me tell you, my outlook on life has forever changed. Well, maybe not my outlook on life, but definitely my outlook on my makeup routine.  This BB cream is THE BEST stuff a girl could ask for!  Not only is it a primer, moisturizer, foundation, antiaging treatment, and sunscreen in one, but it also works as buildable coverage to make my skin look as close to free of fine lines, wrinkles and pores as I had ever dreamed it could be. Oh, and did I mention that it is completely organic and chemical free?  No?  Well, guess what? It is, indeed!

In case you didn’t get the memo, I 100% completely endorse this product.  I love that it is so easily blendable (yes, I’m pretty sure I just made up that word), that there are numerous shades to match your individual skin color, and that it makes the surface texture of my delicate skin so soft and smooth too.

But the best part: when I go to the bathroom and look at my face everyday at 10:30am, guess what I see?  A perfectly dewy and flawless face… just like I did before leaving the house 4 hours earlier.  It’s like time never even passed!
