Make Up Saves Lives

My latest "Make-Up Must Have" - Enjoy!

First meet my new best friend...
Just kidding! Okay, not really. Anyone who makes a concealer and/or foundation as incredible as she does is qualifies to be my best friend!

Here's her new foundation...
It's called "Lock-It Tattoo Foundation"... don't let the packaging or name fool you - this is not heavy duty stuff by any means. It's truly phenomenal. I had customers asking me what foundation I wear this week! The girl at Sephora told me it is brand new & they can't keep it on the shelves.

It's got full coverage potential & is long wearing. A little goes a long way. I apply it with my Sigma F80! 

Here's a list of long-wear foundations I have tried that I didn't love: Mac, Bobbi Brown, Lancome, Clinique, Make-Up Forver, Laura Mercier, Benefit, and Tarte. Now, the only foundation that has been good to me besides Kat's has been Revlon

Buy it here.

Secondly, I actually went to Sephora for a return & inquired about the Kat Von D concealer that all of the beauty bloggers RAVE about... the girl informed me that it is ON CLEARANCE. Score! Evidently she's coming out with new colors so the old ones are on sale... perfectly fine with me. 

I watch a lot of YouTube videos about make-up application {I didn't wear make-up until I was 18 so I've been teaching myself...scary, right?} & Kat's concealer has been a common recommendation in a majority of the videos. Buy it here... Unfortunately, it's not on clearance on the website though. 

Definitely go to your Sephora and grab a couple of samples.

As far as a real live update from the Gemma household... John just finished his Geriatrics rotations! One down... & a lot more to go! 
This next photo will give you a sneak peak into our lives...
True Life: We are growing up. I come home with serious bursitis flare ups simply from standing!
As for me, I'm just a busy working woman and it's wonderful! In fact, look at my early birthday present... working in retail has it's perks!

I miss Arkansas so much! I wore red & white to work today... go Hogs!
