Who out there has something they would like to conceal? Highlight? Tone?
We are in a constant battle with ourselves as we look at the magazines and then read 1 Samuel 16:7 – “The Lord does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Sometimes looking good on the OUTSIDE helps you feel better inside too! When it comes to my appearance, I generally feel better if I make some effort. I have my own personal style, and while I like to keep it simple and not too fussy its still fun to dress up.
After recently going thru proton beam radiation to my eyes, I developed severe edema. While its slowly getting better, most days I have severe bags, under my eyes. I wear sunglasses and sunscreen anytime I’m outdoors. I’m wearing make up a bit more these days and have discovered the amazing magic it can do.
My daily go to:
MAC- foundation, blush, primer, concealer – great coverage, moderate price, long lasting
Graftobian correct wheel – this thing is amazing for blemishes, dark circles, and puffiness
Garnier Clearly Brighter Anti-puff eye roller – comparable to Clinque version for a lot less
Kiehls Eye Alert – actually part of the men’s line with caffeine is great to reduce puffiness
Generally I prefer a natural look, make up for me is to enhance and improve the overall appearance of my face.
Here in a few photos, you can see the drastic side effects of treatment..
This isn’t vanity, its self esteem.
Its been 6 months, I’m so blessed with the health that I have, my family, and my faith.
