Hello! First off, my beauty "secrets":
The Renee Rouleau skin care line. It is expensive, but I have found it to be wonderful! They taught me a great trick for red spots from waxing or pimples: calamine lotion. I have a problem with facial hair, and get a lot of waxing done. They taught me to put on a "mask" of calamine lotion after the treatment, and it has prevented any post-waxing breakouts. It even dries up pimples! Clear for day, pink for bedtime
. I don't know if it works under or over foundation, but it works at other times!
When I got married, I went to the Trish McEvoy counter, and they taught me a wonderful trick for wide awake eyes: nude shadow, very dark navy liner on the top lid ONLY, and navy mascara. The liner was actually a powder, a very tiny line just above the lashes. It is great for pictures!
My favorite lipsticks: MAC Captive and Shishedo Nuance Rose. Go try them, I cannot explain it adequately but they both seem to look perfect on every skin tone.
To the Penn State ladies: Please accept empathy, thanks, and good wishes from a Boston College grad
. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 1980, when I was 11. He passed away when I was 18, just before I left for college. I remember the hardship of helping to care for him, but I now can look back and be happy that I was able to help him. I also remember very fondly the people who helped my family during that time, and trust me there were a lot fewer resources back then! The work that you both do, both professionally and personally, will show to the world in a beauty that no cosmetic will ever be able to duplicate.
