I just wanted to share my face of the day from yesterday’s family portrait session. It’s so incredibly rare to put on a full face of makeup these days being a stay-at-home mama but it was pretty fun getting all done up. I’m really proud of myself for taking care of hair and makeup on my own. I was SO tempted to just going to the salon/makeup counter so that I wouldn’t have to stress about things not turning out the way that I wanted. In the end, I was able to get ready during Evelyn’s naps/while Hubs took care of her so it all worked out.

I usually use Covergirl Exact Eyelights to fill in my top waterline but it “conveniently” broke right when I needed it so I substituted it with Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-on Eye Pencil. I was nervous that it would smudge all over within a couple hours but it ended up working out okay. It didn’t seem to last any shorter or longer than my usual Covergirl eyeliner but the application was much smoother so I think I’ll keep trying it out.
I’ve seriously forgotten how much I enjoy being girly and spending time to look nice, haha. A part of me feels more motivated to put more effort into my everyday look… but the other part of me thinks I’d rather sleep during that extra time! I think sleep will always win for me.
