An After and An Afterthought

I showed below about my horrible rosacea and how splotchy my face looks without any makeup at all. I have a process, and said process takes a while to achieve something I can wear out of the house. My doctor has me taking ten days of minocycline to see if we can clear up the redness and the breaking out. I hope this works, because I’d like to be able to not have to splotch concealer all over my face. This is a regular face routine for me.

Moisturizer: CeraVe Moisturizing Cream
Primer: Almay Color Correct Primer
Foundation: Napoleon Perdis China Doll Foundation
Concealer: SheerCover duo concealer
Powder: Nyx Stay Matte powder foundation

Everything else I wear depends on my mood that day. I’ve been really in love with a certain pink and purple look for my eyes I got on Pinterest. It’s a little color around the top and edges, then dark shimmer over the lids. I have hooded eyes so it’s a good look for me.

The finished look?

I also recently moved, so it gave me the chance to completely organize and sort through my makeup collection. I have a darling iron vanity that I’ve had for a while now. Along with it? A plastic three-drawer unit that holds the makeup. Top drawer is face stuff and lip stuff and eyeliners. Second drawer is loose eye shadows and various creams. The bottom drawer is for all of my palettes. On top rests my nail polishes and removers. Then I keep the vanity for all my hair products, moisturizers, primer and brushes. Here’s what it looks like now.


The Battle Station

Two pills down into this treatment. Still itchy face. Hopefully that’s one of the first symptoms to go, because it’s one of the most annoying.
