L'oreal Infallible Eye shadow in Sultry Smoke and Endless Pearl...my favorite thing of the day
Because they are perfect, gorgeous and make me smile. I get push back on some of my makeup posts ...especially when I share them on Linkedin (most of the CEOs and CFOs I advised were men and don't really get the makeup thing as professional). The work I'm doing is more creative in some ways now. I need the distractions from something light.
And the colors get me thinking. Art and music help us tap different aspects of ourselves. Nature can do the same. So far, I can't fully put the process into words but when I play with the colors I do find different creative thoughts flowing. Blending them together isn't that dissimilar from walking on the beach; it's in the moment and totally there.
Maybe it only works for me...but at least I've found a prompt that taps into my unconscious. What works for you?
And, not only are these long lasting and basically waterproof (hello Maha Yoga) they also cost between $5 and $8, depending on where you get them.
