Someone asked me the other day if I missed doing the Beauty Blogging thing.  My answer: Sometimes. 

Now the thing I miss most about it is the getting ready and trying things I normally wouldn't.  Plus I've discovered that spending a little extra sometimes is totally worth it!  I walked away from it with some AMAZING new products.

What I don't understand is how some of the other bloggers can afford to spend so much on their makeup collections?!?  I guess the pressure to always have something new and fabulous and discover the new "it" product just made the experience not so much fun. (which is probably my own fault, because blogging isn't really a competition [or is it?])

Anyways, I'm enjoying the simpler makeup routine.  That isn't to say that I don't enjoy getting all "dolled up" once in awhile, but working in the oilfield isn't exactly the place for trendsetting/groundbreaking/glamours makeup.

Anyways.  I thought I'd do a little before and after.  You don't have to spend hours and hours getting ready.  Mine took a total of 10 mins (including hair) from start to finish.  Sometimes all you need is a little enhancement to make your features pop!

Please excuse my horrible roots!  I'm in desperate need of seeing a hairstylist!


  1. So pretty! I really like you're tosseled hair

  2. Beautiful! I like to wear lighter and more simple make up for summer, fresh look is gorge!

  3. You are so gorgeous!! I could use a little make over...too bad we don't live closer so we could go have a little "girl time" and pamper ourselves at a salon (then go to lunch too of course). Thanks for sharing your life via your blog. I too, feel a part of your family and look forward to seeing what your doing up in your neck of the world! You are an amazing lady and I adore you! Have an awesome day!!!

  4. Do you know how beautiful your eyes are??!! Such a gorgeous color :)
