Blog your face

The girls over at Chic Critique have a fun contest going on....well, it WOULD be fun, IF I didn't have a lovely summer cold going on.

So, here's the rules....

Your post should include a minimum of the following (although please feel free to give us more, more, more, if you dare!)



  1. a picture of your face, bare naked, unmade-up and fresh as a daisy

  2. a list of the skin care and make-up products you use daily, with brand names and colors/shades

  3. an "after" shot of your face all prettied up

For the "before" picture, I could give you ALMOST any picture I ever have taken of me, because I rarely wear makeup. I am just NOT a makeup girl.


What I use....In the shower, I use zap-it! Facial Wash with Salicylic Acid from the Melaleuca Pharmacy...because this almost-40-year-old STILL has nasty zits.

Then, I get out and use my Nicole Miller (from Melaleuca) Hydrating Facial Toner.


If I'm having my NORMAL day, that's all I do.

IF I am going out of the house, I use my Cover Girl Out-Last Smoothwear all-day eyeliner, in onyx and my Cover Girl Volume Exact Mascara in Very Black.


and THAT, dear ladies, is ALL I do.



And HERE is my AFTER picture....in all of my glory.

You look good with or without makeup.

I'm not much of a make-up girl either. When I was putting on my make-up for the photo, several of my children asked, "Where are you going?"

Thanks for playing along! Mascara is my very favorite makeup item. It's the only thing I don't think I could live without.

I used to use Melaleuca and Nicole Miller products. I liked the Nicole Miller products better than some of the other stuff. They had a nail polish that I absolutely loved. It stayed on a long time, too.

You mentioned acne, but your skin looks great!

Hi there, I jsut wanted to say that you look fantastic with or without makeup too!. In fact the photo without the makup looks like you are in your 20s, no joke. Whereas if I go anywhere without makeup people always ask me if I am sick. Great Blog by the way!

You look great!

I am way to chicken to participate in this though. Without makeup I am one scary lady, lol.
