OK, so fun fact: ideal before I put on this makeup, I had a minor meltdown. long story short, El Hub is back in the office as well as Connor’s at camp, so it’s just me as well as Rosie all by ourselves at home, as well as even though I like her torbie-tude as well as her sassy company, I’m having difficulty adjusting to being alone again. For over a year now, I’ve regularly had somebody nearby, as well as now that I’m by myself once again for long stretches of time, well, it’s weird. It’s waaaaaay as well quiet. I believed I would like having so much time to myself, however when the home is silent as well as all I can hear is the hum of the air conditioner…I feel isolated as well as extremely lonely.
Anyway, I’ve been trying this new thing where I “lean in” to whatever uneasy feelings I’m experiencing, to ensure that instead of battling it, I enable myself to just feel the feelings as well as let the unhappiness pass over me. Does that make sense? Leaning into it for me normally indicates walking for 10 minutes or so on the treadmill or outside to get my body moving, as well as listening to music. often I cry to get everything out. After I do this, I normally feel better.
Yesterday this was the tune I listened to while I walked…
Afterwards, I felt so much much better that I even put on some makeup. Not a ton, however just sufficient to feel like myself again. I did blue lashes with coral cheeks as well as lips as well as a touch of bronzer. extremely summery!
I only utilized a handful of products…

The primary focal point is the blue mascara, which, by the way, is Blue Ya Mind by Colourpop. I gotten it on a whim at Ulta last month, as well as eh, it’s just OK. I most likely won’t get it once again since it’s not especially excellent at curling or fattening up lashes on its own, however when I layer it on top of a water resistant mascara, it’s doable. I have it right here on top of a single coat of water resistant metropolitan Decay Cannonball Mascara.
I’m likewise using my preferred gel bronzer as well as gel blush by Chantecaille on my cheeks as well as lids. I like to do a 50/50 mix on my cheeks, let that layer dry, as well as then dab just the blush on the apples of my cheeks. For my eyes, I used the bronzer on my lids with my fingers. SO EASY!
The blue lashes as well as bronzy coral cheeks pair well with a matte coral lipstick (MAC Crossfade), however I believe a coral gloss would’ve looked great with this too.
