Welcome to our weekly feature “Know Your Birdies” where every Friday a question is posed and you get to know us through our answers. This week we’ve asked… and answered: What is your favorite beauty product?
I think the invention of dry shampoo has changed my life. I worked hard to adjust my hair to washing it every other day. It wasn’t ready at first. I pleaded my case; it laughed at my naivete. Some days I thought we were getting somewhere, when it was just lying in wait, smirking. We battled back and forth like a parent and toddler reaching for the last popsicle in the box. All of this, until a ray of sunshine peaked through the clouds and heaven itself smiled upon me and said, “Well fought. Here is your reward”. And dry shampoo bottles floated down. True story… except the popsicle part.
Shu Uemura eyelash curler is the one beauty product I use every day without fail. It is the perfect eyelash curler with the rounded little silicon pad so it actually curls the lashes and doesn’t crimp them. I don’t know if it bad for the eyelashes or not, but hasn’t seemed to have hurt them after about 10 years of doing this, but my trick is to use a blow dryer to heat up the metal enough to actually create a little more permanent curl.
Pink lip gloss. I probably have at least 20 tubes of it in various drawers, makeup bags, and handbags in my possession. It is a serious addiction. My favorite brand is always changing as I am always discovering something new. But my current loves are from Korres, Tarte and Fresh. I know for a fact that I will be one of those silly old ladies who applies lip product perfectly without a mirror immediately after eating or leaving kiss marks on all my grandkids. I love those ladies.
