This just in, lovely ones:
A query -I’m trying to replace my Clinique make-up products (expensive, and I usually can’t resist shopping at Macy’s afterwards, so more expensive). I’m loving my Cover Girl mascara and eye liner, Almay eyebrow pencil (with a tiny point that you twist out instead of sharpen, so less wasteful) and Revlon long-lasting lipstick in Bare Maximum. But so far, I haven’t found any type of concealer that I like nearly as well as the Clinique. I like a liquid/wand more than crayon types – less scraping against the delicate under-eye. Any suggestions?
Gidge, darling, I’m sure my readers will have a plethora of fantabulous suggestions for this very important question. All wand-applied cover-ups cake up under my wrinkly eyes when I smile, so I avoid them, patting on a light, creamy foundation instead and lightly dusting with highlighting powder.
Readers, if you have dark shadows around your eyes — something that is very typical with age and with olive skin tones — remember that it’s a great idea to apply cover-up all over the eyelid. Blend, blend, blend and make sure you don’t miss the inner corner by the nose.
