Be Smokin’ Hot with a Smoky Eye!

I’ve admitted before that there was a time when I couldn’t leave the house without makeup on. Of course I overcame that once I had kids and realized that it just wasn’t feasible to put makeup on when it was just going to get rubbed or sweated off.

BUT.. yes I said but; I’m still a woman and I’m still a wife. There are times when I need to wear makeup to make myself feel pretty. What I love about Bare Escentuals is it’s quick to put on, looks more natural while still covering the red areas of my face and doesn’t rub or sweat off.

I hadn’t bought any of the eye shadow so I was very excited when Bare Escentuals provided me with their Smoky Eye Tutorial box. It come with 2 shades of eye mineral makeup, a 2-ended brush and an instruction card on how to achieve 2 different Smoky Eye looks.

The card was a big help showing picture and word instructions. I was able to do both looks with minimal effort and the make up doesn’t cake up in the creases of my eye with is awesome.

On a side not Bare Escentuals is hosting an Re-Think What Matters campaign. Each Friday there is a new theme of questions and each week there are 500 instant winners of bareMinerals blush! Go check out the website and rethink what matters in YOUR life!
