I’m sorry I disappeared for a while. Unfortunately we have been SICK. The worst kind of sick. My husband and I initially thought we had consumed some wine that was bad. And then the kids started getting sick…. And now we have just been passing it around and around. I have had little sleep in the last week, and am definitely not looking my best. To top it all off, my mother-in-law and brother-in-law are arriving tonight for a much-awaited visit.
I need to pull it together fast. What’s a girl to do?
I thought I would share with you a few of my favorite products for those dreaded gray face days.
Yves St. Laurent Touche Eclat.
This wonder product is perfect for camouflaging dark circles and overall brightening. (Use it as a highlighter on the corners of your eyes, around you nostrils, dotted on the center of your chin, etc.)
Smashbox Photo Finish Makeup Primer
It's every bit as good as you’ve heard. Smooth some on to create a perfect canvas for your foundation, so nobody has to know just how parched your skin is.
Does this even need an explanation? It's so sheer and so intense at the same time, making it the perfect pick-me-up. My favorite colors are Orgasm and Deep Throat.
And if your skin reacts to stress the way mine does, you may need some acne treatments as well. Right now my favorite over-the-counter products come from Neutrogena.
Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle, Anti-Blemish Cream
Neutrogena On-the Spot Acne Treatment
What about you? What are your favorite items for “saving face”? I’d love some more suggestions!
