This morning I woke up feeling really good and pain free. I was feeling like the old me so I knew I wanted to play with my hair & makeup. My signature makeup look is a dark eye with a glossy nude lip. I prefer a bronzer with shimmer for a blush and sometimes a sheer pink blush.
I like a matte full coverage foundation because I have lots of moles on my face in a small lupus butterfly rash on my nose that I’m self-conscious about. So I always wear layers of foundation and powder.
I decided to do a blog post on this look because I received so many nice complements from the ladies in Connecticut about my makeup look.
