Winter has finally decided to show its mug in L.A., and for some, it’s a face that only a mother could love. It’s nowhere near the kind of winter that much of the country is facing, but it’s ours. It’s rain.
There’s a saying here: “People get crazy in the rain.”
And that’s what’s happened. I went nuts… at Sephora.
I’m obsessed with thick caterpillar eyebrows, so I was all over the Anastasia Beverly Hills display. No one wants spidey-brows, but everyone wants Cara Delevingne‘s furrow (cause they’re beautiful and Cara is many woman’s girl-crush at the moment).
I’ve usually don’t fill in my brows, just because they’ve always seemed fine in the mirror. That was before I noticed the pictures. My brows are somewhat sparse at the tail, so this is happening.
In addition to a strong brow, I’ve decided to change up my skincare regimen. I currently use Lift Lab Purify and Clarify Daily Cleanser (thanks TPOLA!) and Yes to Tomatoes Daily Balancing Moisturizer. That’s pretty much it.
I’m still sticking with Lift Lab, since it lathers well, smells like its straight out of a luxurious spa and washes clean. My new routine includes Origins United State Balancing Tonic after cleansing, which is a good thing considering I still see grime after my Clarisonic. Yes to Tomatoes was a fair drugstore moisturizer and I like that it was all-natural, but it was too heavy at times no matter how sparingly I applied. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Face Moisturizer absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy feeling.
While I’m far from full-blown crows feet, my grandmother always told me that splurging on skincare was worth it. Youth lasts a three decades max, if you don’t take preemptive steps to take care of your skin. So I’ve transitioned into grown-up skincare by investing in a $40 night cream. The price almost made me gag.
Origins High Potency Night-A-Mins caught my eye. Not only was the name cute, but it received rave reviews. First impression? Pretty damn good.
Hopefully losing the hundies won’t all have been for naught.
