A Helpful Tip

Tip: Always work near an Ulta (or some place similar).


Because you might end up going to work without half your face on:


I think that kind of looks like a mug shot so I love it.

I had to go into work yesterday morning and, as usual, I was running late.  I got up at 4:30 am so I could get everything done, but obviously, I didn’t have enough time.  When I got about a mile from home, I realized I forgot to put half my face on.  I almost turned around, but I was already afraid I would be late to work so I kept going.  The half of my face I forgot to put on was my undereye concealer and blush…these are just about the most important makeup items for me.  Fortunately, I managed to put on my eyebrows, eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara (and lips once I got into the office).

By the time I got to work, I’d accepted the fact that I’d look like death for the rest of the day…so sad.   However, when lunch time came around I decided to go to Ulta to fix my face (or at least make it more presentable).


Did I buy anything?  Umm, no.  Did I use products?  Hell yeah!


And I took about 20 years off my face.

So, when in doubt or when you forget, run to your nearest makeup counter and fix your face.  The second half of my day was waaaaaaay better than the first and I’m pretty sure it’s because I wasn’t scaring everyone with the circles under my eyes.

    I HATE undereye circles! My doctor once told me that I had them so bad because of my allergies. He actually used the term “allergy shiners”! What do you use to cover them? I’m in a perpetual search to find the highest pigmented slop to hide them!

  2. I worked at Ulta for a few years a while back. we used to hate when people came in just to use the products and leave.

    now of course, I do this on a regular basis. i especially love to go to the prestige skin care and steal all the lotions.

    • I don’t think anyone saw…no one was working Monday at around 12:30 pm. Yay me!! G is usually the one to use all the testers and slather them all over his face. We’re classy like that.

        i love using up all the free stuff I can. feels especially good at ulta since I used to work there. nothing like telling all the sales people ‘nope, I’m fine’ as i put on my fifth color of eyeshadow!

  4. I wrote about beauty samples today too…free is the best deal. I went to Zumba today and several times throughout the class I thought about your post about G giving 110% in Zumba. He would of loved today’s class…there was a male contest of how low can you go with bumping and grinding. I
