A couple of weeks ago I was involved in a car accident on my way to church that left me out of commission for a bit. Thankfully, I made it out with just some bumps, bruises, and a broken ankle, but recovery has been rough at times.
As silly as it may seem, I didn’t really start to feel like myself again until I got my hands on some makeup.
I didn't have the patience or energy to go through my normal foundation/concealer routine. So I opted for a makeshift tinted moisturizer (a mix of foundation and moisturizer) and used my clean hands to blend it all over my face. For my eyes, I used a clean finger to apply a soft wash of Champagne eye shadow and followed up with a couple coats of mascara.
The week following my surgery, I felt like my skin looked really dull, so I relied on luminizer to fake a glow.
I also kept my blush warm, using a mix of MAC Blush in Gingerly and MAC Mineralize Blush in Warm Soul. With this kind of look I typically like to wear a neutral lip as well because it’s low maintenance and keeps the overall vibe more natural.
I had so much fun looking through all the lovely pictures of you guys last week. Here are some of my favorites.
- Do you guys find makeup as therapeutic as I do?
- How do you freshen up when you aren't feeling your best?
