The twinkle of an eye

October 15, 2009

Greetings! In the midst of our November deadline, I needed a break. And what better way to take a break than to play in BRAVA’s bins of makeup?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been a slacker all summer when it comes to makeup, especially eye makeup. Who really wants to gob on the shadow, eyeliner and mascara, when the humidity is high and it will end up a hot, sweaty mess? Not me. No sir.

But alas, it’s finally time I buckle down and start making myself up in the morning. Even more motivating is the cooler weather, and the fact I don’t need to worry about my face running down my cheeks mid-day (yeah, you know what I’m talking about). And, as if a girl needs more choices in life, the choice of color this season is absolutely enormous! We couldn’t choose just one, two or even three color palettes…oh no! Instead, we’ve compiled five—count ’em—FIVE groupings of colors for fall/winter that will make your peepers pop for any occasion.

Click the links if you’re looking to buy online, or get out this weekend to a local retailer and pump some of that hard-earned cash into our economy. If you’ve got time, get your entire face done at a makeup counter. If you don’t like it, simply wash it off. If you do like it, you know what to do: Loosen those purse strings!
