Happy New Year to everyone. I hope 2017 is a good year. 2016 wasn’t one of my better years, so hoping for an improvement in 2017, health wise.
To start off the year, I would like to give a bit of background to my obsession with beauty products and cosmetics. I think it all started when we lived in Melbourne and my mum had a job with Avon. She was the MD’s secretary. They became firm friends over the years and stayed in touch. Anyway, mum used to bring home samples of the cosmetics.
I was about 8 yrs old. There were little lipsticks in tiny white plastic lipstick containers. There were little vials of the perfumes. Rouges, eyeshadows, face powder. I loved it all and played at dress ups and make up. I think this was the start of my love of makeup and skin products.
Over the years I think I have learned a lot about makeup application. I have been conturing since the 70s (with brown and white eyeshadow). I am still looking for the HG in foundation. I thought I knew most things but then..
I found the glove! For years I have been applying fake tan. Spray, lotion and mousse. I have never had brilliant results with the outcome, unless done professionally. But recently, I acquired a glove. It is a sponge like consistency and you spray on the tan and then rub it in with the glove. I am in love. There are no streaks, it is so easy and quick. At the moment I am using Ulta3 (cheap as chips) but I’m sure it will be the same result with any of the brands.
Game changer, really.
