FOTD GA Maestro, Youngblood Creme Fdtn and Chanel Chintz


I recently took a quick trip to Hot Springs, Virginia...since I was only gone for four days, I toiled to pack a restrained amount of makeup and clothing so my suitcase made it under the 50 lb. limit.  I am delighted to report that I was successful.  I strived for a simple and classic look (no big departure for me, there!) that would take me from daytime leisure to evening social events with ease.  In the following images I am wearing...

FACE:

All in all, a wonderful trip! The Homestead in Hot Springs, VA is breathtaking!
Bottom Line: Although I certainly brought more, I only used 13 makeup products for the entire trip...this reminds me that I can travel with less and still be prepared in the beauty department!

  1. Your eyes are stunning! I love that shadow you chose and how you paired it with a pale/nude lip; really gorgeous :)

    1. Thank you so much, Ezi! I could do a nude lip and slightly smokey eye everyday of my life if I had to ; )

      Warm regards,

  2. I need to check out that M.A.C. liner in Naked, that could be my perfect nude.

    1. It was a fortuitous find at the Atlanta Airport Duty Free store...although I paid duty since I wasn't flying internationally ; )

      It is unlike any nude lipliner I have ever encountered!

      Take care,

  3. You look amazing, as always :) I'm excited for your YB Creme Foundation review, I'm having trouble using it, it applies so heavy and I can't figure out how to prevent it from drying my skin :(

    1. Dearest Krystal...you are so sweet...thank you! I agree that the YB Creme Foundation has a unique texture...so far, I think I like using it best in conjunction with another product (the coverage it gives for touch ups is amazing and quite glowing) but I will do my review using just the product alone to give a true picture!

      Have a wonderful weekend and talk soon...

      xoxo,

  4. Hello, I caved in and ordered the new GA foundation in 4.5 since the store I went to was out of it. When I tried it at the store, I was amazed at the feel and how well it covers. I can't wait to get it in the mail. You really sold me with your recent reviews.

    1. I am so excited for you, Rola! I think that if/when my skin becomes much lighter, that 4.5 would be what I would choose...it has such a beautiful golden undertone. You are going to love using this everyday...so happy I could help you in your decision ; )

      Do keep me posted on what you think and thanks for reading...enjoy the weekend!
