Help! I am going to my son's JROTC Military Ball and I need to look pretty.
Here is a picture of how I look most days before I put on any lotion or make-up. I am also desperately in need of a haircut. Now if I was just sitting at home then this look is OK with me. Since I am attending my son's JROTC Military ball in two weeks, I want to look a whole lot better. I want to go from boring to beautiful and wow not only my husband but also the other moms at the ball. I had my son at age 34 so I am older than the other moms who will be at the ball, but that is not going to stop me from looking beautiful. I already bought a pretty black dress for the event so the next steps that I need to do are get a smashing haircut and learn how to do my makeup.
The secret to learning how to do my make up for the ball is in this little box. This box contains all that I need to make my face go from boring to beautiful. L'Oreal Paris sent me a box filled with their brand new for 2016 cosmetics.This box contains everything that I need to be my own makeup artist. I usually don't wear more than foundation, so I am excited to be able to experiment with what is in this box. So, I won't keep you in suspense anymore and I will open this box up so we can see what is inside.
I just love the way this box opens. My younger boys saw my box and were fascinated by it. They thought it would make a great box to store all their Lego guys in and asked if they could have it. I think not, as it is my beauty box.
The top layer of the box contained 15 wonderful shades of Colour Riche Eyeshadow Monos. These pretty colors provide an ultra-rich and ultra-smooth gel-to-powder blend that allows for easy, controlled application. The hard part will be deciding what color to wear. I am thinking a shade of purple as I am going to be wearing a gorgeous purple necklace, but I will try other colors to see what looks best on me. I just love how rich that dark blue looks.
The next layer of the box contained these Infallible Pro-Contour kits and Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro-Kit. I just love the Pro-Sculpt brush that comes with the complexion kit and with the easy to follow pointers on the packaging, I will be able to create, define, and enhance my features in seconds. The Infallible Pro-Contour kits are available in three shades too. The Brow Stylist Prep & Shape Pro-Kit comes with tweezers and a brush so I can perfectly groom and polish my brows to look their best for the ball.
The last layer of the box contained some more fun makeup items for my lips and eyes. My lips are going to look gorgeous when I apply the Infallible Pro-Matte Gloss to them.The creamy liquid matte lipgloss comes in ten pretty colors to deliver bold color to lips. I think my favorite is the top pink one.
I think all eyes will be on me when I wear the Voluminous Superstar Red Carpet Mascara. This is a primer + mascara that creates lashes that sparkle with light-reflecting pearls. I will be able to bat my long lashes at my husband while I dance the night away. I will have to try all of the four intense shades of the Infallible Matte-Matic Liner to be able to see which one looks best on me. I love that they are a mechanical eyeliner so I don't to sharpen them with a pencil sharpener. That is a plus for me as my boys always seem to take my sharpeners for their pencils. I am not sure if I will use the Infallible Black Velvet Liner, as it might just be too bold for my eyes. I also love that both liners are safe and gentle for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
What a fun box of items that I received from L'Oreal Paris. I am going to look so beautiful for my son's JROTC Military Ball. This cosmetic collection will help me go from boring to beautiful for a fun night of dancing. The L'Oreal website also has videos to help a girl, like me, who needs help with makeup application. Check out L'Oreal Paris's website to find out more about this new makeup collection.
So how do I look? Did I do a good job with my makeup and go from boring to beautiful?
