Third Thursday - Beauty
When Bri announced that this month's theme was beauty, I was like "huh - I don't really do that!" I mostly just look the way I look and then wear clothes! My hair and make-up routine is pretty minimal. In fact, I did a post about it back in 2012, if you are interested. The only change for my hair is that I switched to using sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner, and I use a deep-conditioner about once a week. I also add some leave-in conditioner before I slather on the mousse. I pretty much have 3 hairstyles - down, ponytail, and bun. Sometimes, I will do a braid (or two). But it's usually just down and curly!
I don't paint my nails very often, because I am notorious for picking at any little bump. So if the nails are perfect, I won't mess with them, but if there is even a tiny smudge, I will destroy the whole thing within a couple of days. I should really exercise more self-control with that, because painted nails are pretty!
As you can see, I was sort of stumped, and then Bri mentioned lipstick. Last summer, I bought some lip-stain and I really liked it, but I always forget to put it on. So, I made sure to remember to paint my lips pink for this day! I'm not a fan of actual lipstick, but I love the lip-stain, because the color goes on easily, and then you can add glossiness with the balm.
Anyway, maybe I'll pick up some tips from the other ladies who link up!
