To MAC or Not To MAC
I have a new addiction...I have a new love for make-up.
I've been a BE user for about 7 years. Before that, I didn't wear foundation at all, only concealer to "hide" my imperfections. Last weekend, I had my company Christmas party. Since the weather here in Texas has been extremely humid this winter, I chose to spend $$ on make-up that I KNEW would last all night, rather than spend the same amount of $$ on a hairstyle that would only last me for a few hours.
I have very problematic skin. I'm near the big 3-0, so I've had a lot of "hormonal" breakouts these last few months. My regime hasn't changed, and neither have the products I've been using, hence my diagnosis of "hormonal".
Since I'm not very good at applying make-up when I have these blemishes, and I had to look my best, I decided to have "the Best" do my make-up.
I made an appt with my nearest MAC store and was blown away. I've had MAC do my makeup in the past, but apparently I had it done by the w-r-o-n-g person. This time around the visit was enjoyable, and overall, educational. The young lady that worked on my face was not bothered by my acne at all, in fact she said, "Oh girl, we'll get rid of those REAL QUICK". It was awesome, my prayers were answered. My face looked like $1 Million bucks!
Here's a list of the items she used on me:
