The Lipstick League – Week of 31.10.11

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 7 - 2011

Question of the Week: – Is there a part of your beauty routine that you absolutely will not skip, even when pressed for time?

Answer: I struggle to leave the house nowadays without some kind of skin-base.  It doesn’t have to be full-on foundation, a tinted moisturiser will do… it just makes me feel that little bit more confident.  I left the house the other day without mascara and didn’t even notice!!  My husband asked me (cautiously) if I’d done anything ‘weird’ to my eyelashes.  I reached up to touch them and instantly realised – I pressed him into telling me why they looked weird (I enjoy watching him squirm a bit) and he said that they looked like I’d dip-dyed them lighter at the tips!

    I can’t leave without brows and mascara. I can deal with shitty skin, I can’t deal with bald face.
