The 25 Days of Christie: Day 10

Sit-Back Sunday!! Wow, sorry for the late post! Worked today for our Easter/Spring Mini-Sessions with Kievning Photography. Got to make up some beautiful mamas today and yesterday, it was such a joy! Stay tuned for some pics! And tonight, my cousin is visiting from Hawaii. He’s a marine and we’ve eaten a feast of corned beef and cabbage– Deeeeeeelish. Anyway, back to our fun filled themed days. Today is Sit-Back Sunday, which if you’re just tuning in means no makeup! Let your skin breathe, put on a face mask, some cucumbers on your eyes and RELAX! Give your skin a break and pamper yourself before the week starts again! If you’re feeling brave, post your beautiful, makeup-free face to my Facebook page.

A Few of My Favorite Things:
Day 1: Tweezerman Tweezers
Day 2: Josie Maran Argan Oil
Day 3: Christian Dior Cuticle Cream
Day 4: L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream
Day 5: MakeUp Forever HD Primer
Day 6: Benefit’s Benetint Tinted Lip Balm
Day 7: Buxom Full Bodied Lip Stick
Day 8: Dr. Lipp Original Nipple Balm For Lips
Day 9: Benefit’s “They’re Real” Mascara
Day 10: Essie Crystal Nail File

This nail file is un.be.lievable. It never dulls, it cleans easily, and smooths nicely. I’ve had the same nail file for years, it’s not too jagged and it doesn’t wear down. Literally, most genius invention ever. I. Love. This. Thing.

Tomorrow is Makeup Monday!!! Prepare yourselves for another giveaway!!!!!!!!

Happy Sunday!

I love this mascara. It is extremely long wearing (despite the fact that it’s not technically water proof). I literally need makeup remover to remove it, nothing else will do. It doesn’t flake or come off onto your makeup. It separates nicely and is pretty much just wonderful.

Today and tomorrow I will be doing some “Easter Mini-Sessions” with Kievning Photography where I will get the opportunity to pamper some beautiful moms for their family photo shoots. I love this idea because I am working with women who generally put themselves last above all the other things in life (baby, cleaning, working, cooking, errands, go go go). There is a relaxation and peace about them to just sit, be pampered, feel beautiful and wear makeup for the first time in a long time! Stay posted for some pics of some of these beauties!

Here’s a shot of Calvin and me from our Valentine’s Day Mini-Session!

This is a heavier, more intense lip balm than most people are used to. I tend to switch between this and my Rosebud Salve, which will indefinitely be among my list of favorite things. But I do prefer this when my lips need a little extra TLC. It’s rich and thick and I like to put it on before bed or before my shower to let it really just soak in. A dry winter must!

Happy Fabulous Friday, everyone! Can’t wait to see your fabulous thank-goodness-it’s-Friday makeup!
