- Wedding: June 2011
So, I get to relax for a coupla seconds since Mr. Uh-Mazing and I have to decide on the deposit for our venue this weekend (*crossing fingers and toes). So, until then (aka tomorrow … how is it Friday already?!), I’ve decided to ditch décor and general wedding planning for skin care research and makeup ideas.
First and foremost … Skin care. I don’t know about other women but I know that I would kill a b**** to get my hands on any ‘miracle’ skin care products that actually work. I’ve been a hopeless consumer since my teenage years and haven’t found my niche yet! So when it came to thinking about my makeup ideas, I figured it would be best to de-tox my skin as much as possible before the makeup trials begin. I don’t have terrible skin, but it ain’t the best either. (*Sob) So, I began my research and now feel like I’ve read reviews on every skin care product known to man! Uggh. Not a fun task lemme tell you~ but I have finally decided on my skin care routine products! Hooray!
My routine consists of the basics:
- Face Wash
- Moisturizer (Ha! I am really bad at applying moisturizer but am determined to get this into my routine!)
Within those 3 items I rarely, if not never, get a chance to buy all 3 that are the same product. I run out of these at all different times, but this time I finally have run out of all 3 and decided on trying out kits that include all those products and claim to work better with one another. I’ve tried the new foundation, shown below, and it works great for me. I can’t speak for other people but this product seems to love my skin and vice versa. I didn’t notice immediate results but after just 2 weeks I started seeing my skin appear more even and for sure it is definitely not getting any worse. I also like the feeling on the skin when this is applied. Not too thick but feels like adequate coverage. Plus it helps your skin, so why not?
So I have settled on this kit ($32.50):
And this additional purchase ($13.50):
The 3 set kit is a LOT smaller than I imagined. Its more of a trial size type kit, in my opinion. However, there are individually sold products that are bigger in size but also cost about as much as the kit. Meh, no big deal, since I am ‘trying’ these products. I should see the results, if there even are any, by the time the products have been used up. I will keep you posted on the results.
The additional product I purchased (Post Blemish Formula) claims to get rid of dark spots and scars. It wasn’t terribly expensive so I thought I would give it a shot. Stay tuned.
Now the product I am still mulling over on trying is Dermablend.
I have really big tattoos in visible areas (I started a half sleeve on my right arm; big birdcage on the left forearm; a tribute to mum on my neck and a biggie on my left side calf). Naturally I received questions on if I was planning on covering them up or effin’ it and rockin’ em out. Well, to be honest the thought had never occurred to me until I saw a horrific picture of a tattooed bride that just looked… well, um non-bride-ish? So I am still mulling it over. Everyone at the wedding is aware of my tattoos and thinks nothing of it, but the thought crossed my mind on how awesome Mr. Uh-Mazing’s folks’ reaction would be. They love me but I’m sure they could do without the massive tattoos. It’s somewhat of a big elephant in the room, ha. So anyway, before I decide on it I was wondering what the wedding community thought about this.
Has anyone attended a wedding where the either the bride or groom used Dermablend to cover up? How did it look?
Should tattoos be covered up for the wedding or should I just say ‘pfffft! Its how I roll’?
P.S. I have tried Xeno Hot spot and sorry Whitney, but that shit does not do anything but heat ur pimple up and make it look extra juicy. :T
