Quick FOTD- Breakfast Shake- Life- Update

I am really struggling with breakouts right now. Could be stress related or hormonal. I am trying to get my house finished in the next two weeks before my boys arrive with their dad. I have spent the last couple days painting the trim in the downstairs, painting the laundry room and planting my garden. I still have more painting and planting to do!

Today, my goal was to cover my imperfections as much as possible and distract from them with some color.

I always revert back to my Bare Minerals loose foundation when I have breakouts. I just don't want to put junk on my skin when it is already upset. I put two layers of golden medium loose on, then topped it with a layer of Ready medium beige and golden tan mixed.

I then filled in my brows with my Anastasia Bold Brows kit.

I put a wash of baby pink on my lids and applied Urban Decay Junkie eyeliner and smudged it with a tiny brush to wing it out.

I then applied mascara.

I used Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit blush n brighten on my cheeks.

For lips, I used Be A Bombshell gloss in Hot Mess. It is bright but sheer. It also appears a bit blotchy in photos.




For a quick breakfast, I mixed a packet of my Pure Green protein powder with 8oz of Carbmaster Milk and blended it.



It tasted very "green" to me but I can tolerate it. This is my first time actually trying this protein powder. The Carbmaster milk is from Kroger. It is supposed to be good for you, though I haven't checked out the ingredients in detail yet. My husband loves it!

Now, I am on to work. Then home to go through more boxes of unpacked stuff and hopefully plant some more in my garden tonight before bed. I still have a bedroom to paint by the weekend as well. I can't wait to post photos of the house when it is finally finished!

Thanks so much for taking your time to read my blog. I appreciate each and every one of you.
