Makeup Is A Girl’s Best Friend (Plus Enter The #mkhollywooddreams Contest)

I’ve joked about this before on my blog, but I don’t go ANYWHERE without mascara on. Truly – my husband tells his friends that I won’t even go to the bathroom without extended lashes. LOL! That might be a tad bit of an exaggeration, but I see his point. I don’t feel “ready” unless my eyes are at least done.

So, you better believe that if I go food shopping, hit up Starbucks for my favorite tea, drive to the mall to run errands, or meet a few girlfriends for a relaxing lunch date I most certainly have a full face on.

I hate to admit this… but I even do my eyes when I hit the gym. It’s part of my DNA. I can skip the foundation and lipstick without a problem. But my eyes are my eyes and they need to be camera ready at all times.

Yes, I have a problem. My name is Vera and I love makeup.

What about you? Do you tend to wear makeup running around town? Does it have to be a special occasion or do you do your face on daily basis?

Every girl likes to feel put together once in a while. As a mom, sometimes it’s harder to find the time to dedicate to myself. If only I could win a makeover… Oh wait! I can. And so can you!!

  1. I have to use Hard Candy Primer! It makes my face smooth and ready any other makeup, or I wear it alone. It makes my face even and smooth. I also don’t leave the house without blush on.. i feel naked without it. Not bright or dark blush, just a little pink added to my cheeks. And lastly.. i always have Carmex on! Any season, it doesn’t matter, i put on Carmex at least 5 times a day.. i guess you could say I’m addicted:)
