Do you remember who taught you how to do your makeup?
No one every sat me down and showed me how to do my makeup. For the most part, I’ve been able to figure it all out on my own. However, I still guess an awful lot!
Thanks to YouTube and the wonderful ladies who share their tips and advice through video tutorials, I’ve learned a bit more lately, but it’s still not “personal”, you know?
They don’t have my skin type. They don’t have my (Casper the Friendly Ghost) coloring. They typically have flawless skin….(um, I’m 30 and I’m approaching the wrinkle stage and I STILL have acne!).
So when I ran into a Beauty Consultant at a local Walmart recently, I was SO excited! A one on one beauty consultation right there in the middle of the makeup aisle of Walmart!
I’m not getting any younger (30!) so first we talked about the wide variety of Olay products specifically targeted towards anti aging. I was surprised at the wide selection and the great prices!
My consultant had some great tips for me. I complained that my mascara tends to clump and flake and she pointed me in the direction of a Clump Free Cover Girl mascara.
She also explained the difference between CC and BB cream (CC is a color correcting cream and BB is more of a beauty balm) and why I might want one over the other.
I have brown eyes and I LOVE eye shadow, so we chatted a bit about how to bring out my brown eyes via eye shadow. She directed me to a Cover Girl palette made SPECIFICALLY for brightening up brown eyes! It even came with a blending brush…very cool!
My Beauty Consultant (her name was Karen!) also helped me find a very light cover up for my under eye area. I recently watched a video (on YouTube of course, LOL) where the girl was putting on a “flawless” face of mascara. One thing she noted was that you shouldn’t use thick cover up in your delicate under eye area.
Um…I was using a VERY thick under eye concealer! Karen helped me find a very light and very complimentary under eye concealer made by Cover Girl.
After I said goodbye to Karen, me and the fam headed home and later that evening…with a fresh face of my new makeup…my husband and I had a fun date. He complimented me on my new make up and was very impressed!
Thanks Karen for making my date night super special and helping me find new and fun ways to wear makeup!
