2 AM Witching Hour

Despite that this refers to only one day of the year (whereas I experience this around 2 am EVERY morning) I think this meme is adorable…

Without fail, by 2 in the morning I’ve been jumped on and mewed at. By both of our black cats. “MOM, I’m HUNGRYYYY!” would be a fair translation.  If not that, it’s Keku saying “you DO know breakfast is coming up, right?  I mean, I just want to make sure your don’t forget or anything…”

By 4 or 5 am they’ve been pushed to their limits so the second round of waking me up usually results in silencing the little ninjas…

I’m sharing this for two reasons…

1…the REMARKABLE ability for color cosmetics to transform the way a person looks.  It can literally go from waking you up…to adding a youthful glow…to creating a WHOLE other persona!

2…as a long-time performing athlete, this was a skill I needed to learn EARLY.  I’m blessed to say I will be getting married in October of this year and I am super fortunate that I have experience doing all this myself!!!  (That said tutorials are always fabulous refreshers! 😉 ) 

I know everyone loves videos and tutorials, and this was just a terrific little post from Beauty Chatter on Bloglovin (which, sadly, doesn’t support WordPress!)

Enjoy it! 🙂

Beauty Humor – My Eyes Disappeared!

For me this would have to read “without my eyelash curler,” as that’s the one thing that honestly wakes me up.  I don’t wear mascara for two reasons, that aside – I’m an athlete and don’t need the mess when I’m sweating (white gis and makeup don’t mix!), and I don’t want to cause my lashes to be brittle or dry.  (Lots of great formulas out there that nourish these days, but I still like to go bare.)

But I am still certain this will resonate with ladies – that shiny coat of blackness can definitely make a difference in definition.
