The 25 Days of Christie: Day 11

MAKEUP MONDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hooray another giveaway!!!!!!!!!!! Today is gray and gross and it’s Monday– what better day than to get free stuff? After much thought, I’ve decided to give away a travel sized Makeup Forever HD Primer!!!!! This was on my list of My Favorite Things a few days ago and it has been my favorite primer for years. It smooths out your skin, creates a barrier between your skin and foundation, and makes your makeup last much longer. It’s an absolute must have.

This is a highlighter that could be used really, as a go-to last minute fresh faced look or as finishing touches to a full makeup application. It can be applied to your cheek bones, your brow bone, the inner corner of your eyes, the bridge of your nose and the center of your lips (or all or just one of those). Generally I use it on my cheek bones and it gives the skin a healthy glow and a gorgeous highlight. I know, it seems I’m a little obsessed with Benefit’s products… It’s kind of true. They’re just too darn good.

Good luck on today’s Makeup Monday Giveaway! Can’t wait to hear from you!

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.

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!
