What I've been dreaming of lately.. My #summerbeautywishlist has some things I've wanted forever and some things I've recently been curious to try. I've been super careful/cautious/mindful of the skincare I purchase lately. I hate clutter! But the 4 skincare products on my list all fulfill a spot in my routines that needs to be filled or will need to be filled soon. The makeup items are two that I've wanted forever, and will probably continue to dream about for awhile. If I become wealthy sometime soon, I'll buy them all though! #paulaschoice Brightening Essence, 1% Retinol Booster and C15 Super Booster. I've loved every single thing I've tried from this brand. I want more! #joshrosebrook Vital Balm Cream. Ahhhhh...I've wanted this since it came out. I know my skin will love it! #charlottetilbury Bronze and Glow and Pillow Talk lipstick and Lipliner. So gorgeous!.. one day they will be mine.
44% women don't feel comfortable without makeup. Do you?
The Harris Interactive research, conducted for the Renfrew Center Foundation, found that cosmetics are about far more than simply accentuating features - worryingly, they are about hiding what lies beneath.
Of the 1,292 surveyed women, 44% say they feel negative about themselves when they are bare faced. Of those, 16% goes further by admitting that they did not feel attractive when au naturel, 14% said they felt 'naked' without cosmetics and a further 14% said they felt self-conscious without them. 'Makeup no longer becomes a tool for enhancement but, rather, a security blanket that conceals negative feelings'
