I'm turning the corner to 30 and have made some major lifestyle changes. In the past few months I have quit smoking and started exercising and eating right (lost 20 pounds so far). I've been feeling much better about myself and my makeup skills are definitely improving.After trying samples of several types of foundation I decided the best for me was MAC SFF NC15. Even though many people have reported breakouts from this foundation, my skin is actually looking better. This may be because I'm extra diligent about washing my face due to the previously mentioned reviews. Now that I've built up a nice collection of makeup I'm looking more into skincare and building a routine that works for me. Right now I'm trying out a Philosophy routine.
I've also recently gotten an new hairstyle. For the first time every I'm blowing my hair straight and touching it up with a flat iron. I'm done tons of research on the best hair products for my hair type and for heat protection. I'm currently using Joico K-pak or Aveda Smooth Infusion shampoo and conditioner followed by Aveda Smooth Infusion Style Prep and CHI Silk Infusion then a styling gel before blowing out. So far so good.

Self-confidence. With that anyone can be beautiful.
My routine starts with Philosophy Microdelivery cleanser, Hope in a Jar moisturizer, MAC P&P SPF50, MAC SFF NC15, some random concealer, MAC blot powder, blush, TFSI or UDPP eyeshadow primer, various shadows (love MAC and UD), eyeliner (love smudgepots), blowdryer heated lash curler, UD lash primer. mascara, lipstick or gloss with primer and liner. My lipcolor comes with me in my purse and I'm off to work.
I've recently tested several liquid foundations and found MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 to be the best for my skin. It covers well and stays looking nice all day.
This mascara doesn't clump or give me the spidery lashes. My lashes stay looking great all day long.
Cream/gel eyeliners are the way to go! When I use a pencil it feels like I'm pulling at my eyelid. Even with high quality pencils I still can't get a nice line. Gel liner and a brush make it easy.
