I feel like the weeks are flying by at such a quick pace…..lucky for us we have Shabbos, a full 25 hours to stop trying to complete our endless ‘to-do’ lists, shut off our blackberries and cell phones and put the daily grind of life on hold for some much needed rejuvination. Aaaaah, bliss…..well Shabbos IS actually 1/60 of Olam Habah so we might as well make it absolutely the MOST fabulous day of our week!
I always try to get dressed in something chic AND comfortable. A basic dress or skirt and top can be dressed up nicely with a fabulous chain and stone necklace.
Try to get your makeup to last so you don’t wake up Shabbos morning looking like a ghost. I’m addicted to mac liquidlast eyeliner, a rich color liquid eyeliner that combines long-lasting wear with a non-smudge, non-flake precision line. Just make sure you don’t use it at least two days before you have to take off all your make-up…that’s how good it is.
Apply a neutral shade of lip liner to your lips to start the process. Fill in your entire lip with the lip liner. This will give the lipstick something to hold onto to help it last all day.
Apply the lipstick to your lips. Take a tissue and press it to your lips to remove any excess lipstick. Reapply lipstick to lips. This will build up the color.
Apply loose powder over your lips with the large powder brush. You will only want to apply a very light layer of powder. This will set your lipstick to make it last all day.
Wipe any excess powder off your lips with a tissue.
Hope you have a peaceful, spiritual and fabulous Shabbos!
Til next time….
