Big Decision

Thursday, May 9, 2013

My kids are getting older and they seem to need me less and less everyday.
I recently made a BIG decision in my life!!! One that affects my entire family.
I have enjoyed the last 4.5 years at home with them, but the time has come for me to contribute a little more financially to our families income. The opportunity came up for me to become an Independent Beauty Consultant for Mary Kay, I knew instantly that it was for me!

So brace yourself for a moment... I'm going to do something I swore I would NEVER do... I am going to show you a picture of myself with absolutely NO MAKEUP!!!



 eeeekkk.... scary I know!

Sadly I'm not one of those gals who wakes up looking like a million bucks. Luckily for me, I have Mary Kay.

I thought I'd show you all the goodies I use on a regular basis!
Since skin care is the most important thing to me I use MK's Time Wise Miracle Set and the
  Time Wise  Firming Eye Cream.
I absolutely LOVE the way it makes my face look and feel.

Okay, so makeup!!!! Here I am after I have finished painting on my face!!! :)

Doesn't even look like the same girl does it??? LOL

 I always start with MK's Foundation Primer. It makes my face feel smooth like butter!!!
Then I use MK concealer and Time Wise Liquid Foundation.

My next step is MK mineral blush!! in my absolute FAVORITE color, Citrus Bloom.
After I have the base I work on my eyes!!!! I love MK's mineral eye shadows and my current color addiction is "Sweet Plum"  with "Spun Silk".

I top that with my black MK Eye Liner  and of course MK's Ultimate Mascara in black.
For my lips I am wearing MK's Au Naturel NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss.

 I top the whole look with another one of my personal favs... MK's Finishing Spray!! :)

And there you have it... I guess it's obvious now why becoming an Independent Beauty Consultant with Mary Kay was the right choice for me!!! :) Besides all the obvious perks of the job I am so thankful to work with a company that was founded by such a strong and powerful woman, Mary Kay Ash, who started the company to simply enrich the lives of women!
I am so grateful for this blessing and can't wait to see where my Mary Kay journey takes me.

  15. I believed Sheldrake was brilliant. I've study the his Wiki page and listened for the TED talk posted. It has presently been established in astrophysics which the current physics and mathematics aren't sufficient to cope or understand
    what is getting found in these fields. It is a shame the scientific community is acting like the crazed catholics in the middle ages and tying up
    science in dogma and absolutism contemplating how science has evolved over millenia.
    To eliminate him from areas like TED is censorship which I wholeheartedly deplore.
    Has science forgotten that it had been exploratory minds that produced discoveries
    that couldn't be explained fullly at the time?
