I’m not a daily makeup wearer. The two days I always leave the house to drop Ryan at preschool are my usual gym days, so I don’t wear makeup for that. But if I have a doctor’s appointment or lunch with a friend, usually I will do a quick 5-minute makeup routine.
That said, I don’t like anything too heavy on my face. Normally, I use a light foundation and then I focus on my eyes with shadow, liner and mascara. For the lips, I like a tinted gloss. My favorite look is one that is polished, but in a natural way.
Just recently I was presented with an opportunity to try out the new Victoria Jackson® cosmetics. I remember the Victoria Jackson infomercials from the 90’s which my mom first bought the cosmetics from. I was just starting to experiment with makeup and the time and I had fun playing with her products when she wasn’t looking.
I’ll start with the Foundation Duo. This particular one comes in a mirrored compact with two shades and a sponge for the perfect blend. I felt that this product looked too cakey on me. It’s thicker and more heavy than the type of foundation I’m used to wearing.
The Perfect Everyday Blush in garden is of nice quality and it blended beautifully. In ‘Garden’, it is the perfect shade for that flushed cheek look.
To finish the look, I used my usual shadow and liquid eyeliner and then the Victoria Jackson Lush Mascara. This was my favorite of the makeup products. The mascara gave me nicely separated lashes with zero clumping. This one’s a winner.
At the end of the day, I used the makeup remover. I learned quickly that a little goes a long way. Just dap some onto a cotton swab and swipe the makeup right off. When I first tried it I poured too much onto the cotton and it stung my eyes, so just use sparingly and gently to avoid that. It worked like a charm; my makeup came off much easier than the removing cloths I usually use.
