Being jetlagged isn’t all that bad… until you feel like you’re going to pass out in the middle of the day (it’s 7:50 PM and my eyes feel like iron curtains). However, I think I was more productive today/this morning than I have been in a very long time.
– went to CVS to pick up some drugstore makeup
– went to Fresh Market to get ingredients for my juice
– made my green juice and went to the gym
ALL before 10 AM rolled around. Being an early bird is great!!! I wish my body actually liked getting up this early everyday.
Anyway, after my very productive morning, I had to get ready to take some 2×2 photos, which are required for some of my dental school applications. Because I don’t usually like heavy foundation, most of my face makeup is comprised of BB creams or tinted moisturizers, which all contain SPF (sidenote: it is very important for young women to start using SPF on their faces!! Wrinkles and dark spots will start to appear soon, and it’s better to start preparing for these unwanted…things, for lack of a better word… in your early to mid twenties).
However, when you are planning to take a photo, such as a passport photo, driver’s license photo, or even photos on your wedding day, it is a good idea to stray away from products that contain SPF. This is because SPF tends to give your face a white cast, which is unfortunately highlighted on camera. So, while I was at CVS, I picked up the Revlon Colorstay for combination/oily skin in the color “Beige Natural.” I have heard many great things about this product, and one of my favorite beauty gurus on YouTube, missglamorazzi, always raves about this foundation. The price was also so much more affordable for a broke student like me, compared to higher end foundation products ($12.99… not bad, eh?).
