for the past few years i have used Bare Escentuals/Bare Minerals products. i just love them and continue to love them even more. i have never really been one for "make up" other than using it to liven up my "morning" look ... i don't really "play" and i've had the same routine for the past -- forever...
i was introduced to the line when my sister-in-law started carrying it in her salon, MisBehaven. i went to a salon event where a company rep gave me a mini make up make over and an introduction to the products and i decided i was in love.
*the products are easy to use
*possibly more or less than you usually spend, but a quality product
*fun - i heart the kits + brushes (the cheapest way to buy brushes is through a kit - double goodness)
the reason it's on my mind is because kim and i went to a make up party at the salon on sunday evening. we had an amazing time. two wonderful estheticians/make up artists (kael and ciara) , a talented hair stylist (brittany), girls, pizza, and great make up made for a fabulous evening. we cleansed, we had our make-up done, we had our hair done, we ate, we chatted, we shopped... and then kim and i left for a night out-- at wal mart (yes, we are a little lame and didn't stay out late).
i learned how to back-comb, how to put my hair in a side bun, and how to use some new bare minerals products and several make-up techniques. fabulous.
i was so very proud of myself - because the next day, after a little trial and error, i recreated my look...
this was an unheard of feat in my book
thank you thank you Misbehaven team + our sweet hostess!
p.s. we had so much fun we've decided to host our own party later this season - if you live near to us and our interested let me know and i'll make sure you get an invite
