I would have thought that at the age of 50, I would have grown out of my freckles (as promised by my mother when I was a child). I thought that pimples and other spots would be a thing of the past – something for teenagers. Somehow this hasn’t happened.
I am still get spots – too regularly and in have other random blemishes including those black shopping bags under my eyes. For someone who has been trying to be sophisticated for years, these along with the dreaded freckles, are not helping my case.
Now, I have come to terms with my freckles but it has taken some time. As a small child I was obsessed with them and tried everything – and I mean everything to get rid of them. I even overheard an adult conversation where somebody mentioned urine (or was it uric acid) – and helped myself to my brothers diaper in desparation. I still shudder at the thought today.
(I was a funny child!)
Anyway thankfully time has moved on and so has cosmetology. For a while now I have been lusting after my friends blemish palette with the green concealer. When she does my make-up all these colours are applied with skill and my skin tone is evened out.
Well you can imagine my delight when I attended the Into the West Bloggers Network (ITWBN) event last Sunday and received a fabulous goody bag that contained not only one but tow fabulous skin repair palettes from IsaDora. The colour correcting concealer has anti-redness (the green one) a concealer, dark circle corrector and a highlighter. The other is a neutral palette and is going to go to my sister!
I have a good few blog posts that I will be sharing about this fabulous event! I came home super inspired!
Thanks to Sinead and Saidbh – and welcome to all my new readers – hopefully.
