Once upon a time I was young and well rested and didn't worry much about makeup. But three kids, 12 years, and countless sleepless night later I pay a little more attention to what I am putting on my face to hide those sleepless nights.
Here are a few firm rules that I believe help put my best face forward.
1) Water, water, water. Hydrated skin is pretty skin.
2) A facial lotion with sunscreen is my best friend. (I have used Olay Complete with SPF forever!)
3) When all else fails, conceal.
For the last week I have a new tool in the fight against dark circles, the Olay Total Effects Line and Dark Circle Minimizing Brush.
Inside this brush isn't just concealer. This makeup also tightens the skin around your eyes and has 7 anti-aging benefits. I wish I could brush the magic over my entire face, but for now I will have to settle for under my eyes. People see your eyes first anyways, so at least they will be making a good first impression.
So what are the 7 beautiful benefits? It reduces the look of dark circles, fine lines, puffiness, uneven texture, uneven tone, dryness, and firms the area under your eyes. And what does that all equate to for me? This weekend I lost an hour of sleep to daylight saving time, another hour to staying up late to visit with company, and two more hours to a little girl that woke up sick. But I got up in Sunday morning and got ready for church and didn't feel like that all showed on my face. So to me that is benefit number 8.
This handy little tube of makeup has a brush applicator that I love. It is easy to apply, no dabbing and smudging like with regular concealers. It is almost like painting it on. Smooth, quick and easy. It is a great addition to my typical makeup routine. Anything that works better and is easier to use wins in my book. Because when you need it the most, you are usually to tired to hassle with it all!
