This is... My Trade Secret


Amelia nominated this week's theme, and as always, Angela at Three Buttons is the hostess with the mostess.

I'm not going to make any 'crafty' statements here. Everyone knows I am a novice, so I won't go off giving you tips on something I am still learning.

My trade secret is this... Stila Convertible Color.. Unusual choice I know. But when you're a sleep deprived, time hungry mama you gotta have some tricks on the roll. This little beauty is a cheek and lip colour all in one. My my, it's a goodie. A little on the cheeks and you look like you've just returned from a looong weekend in Byron Bay. A little on the lips and you're ready to slip into that meeting, perfectly made-up, like you've had a long eight hours sleep (and not been up and down, up and down with wiggly babies that like to sing out at 3, 4, 5am). It's a steadfast friend in my make-up bag, and the compact, my oh my, the compact is so cute and girlie, which instantly makes it a must have.

Sounds perfect. My problem is finding some time to put make up on. mostly when I try, the little one is tugging at my arm - there have been a few oopsies.

Sounds likes some handy makeup. Might have to check that out myself.

Sounds good. And multifunctional! I love the Stila lipgloss as well - although a tad sticky - but it stays on.

I can definately vouch for this choice!!! I use the same product by Stila in a slightly brighter colour. But upon checking Ive used it so much the colour name has rubbed off! My backup secret is Benefit Dandelion blush for when Im looking/feeling seriously beige.......x
