Hola! God it feels good to be back! As some of you may know, I had LASIK surgery in June and since this was the second time (don’t freak out, this happens sometimes), the recovery process has taken way longer than expected. Just last week, I started driving at night again because my long distance vision is still fuzzy and as a result, my eyes get tired faster than normal. With this said, the blog has been on a complete pause because after spending eight hours in front of a computer at the office, my vision is shot at the end of the day and the last thing I want to do is get in front of another screen. Light bothers me quite a bit still but I expect to make a full recovery from eye surgery. Have any of you had LASIK (twice)? I would love to hear your experience.
Onto the fun stuff, I had the pleasure of attending a fabulous Bobbi Brown soiree (thanks to Netty from The Fashionable Esq) in which they introduced their new Fall 2016 Sunset Pink Collection, which is to die for. If you know me, you know I’m all about visible-from-space highlighters and a fierce cat eye (and red lipstick, obvi). The highlighting powders in this collection are A DREAM and since they have some color to them, they can be used in lieu of blush for a glowy look. The shimmer inks are gel-based eyeliners with some serious stay-power. My favorite one is Bronze which you’ve probably seen me rocking on Snapchat (OwnYourGlam). BTW guys, I unbox and showcase everything on Snapchat first, sometimes long before it hits the blog. So if you’re into makeup and beauty, make sure add me on the Snap so you don’t miss out!
So, since my vision has been challenged these days, I’ve been keeping my makeup pretty simple which makes me oh-so-grateful for products that perform well and are easy to use. This is where the Bobbi Brown’s Sheer Color Cheek Tint comes in. A little dab on the cheeks (and lips when feeling extra lazy) and voila! #BEWHOYOUARE
