Glinda’s Beauty Philosophy

By Glinda

Well, we might as well start off with me explaining my take on “beauty” which is a term that encompasses a vast amount of products and services.   And even though I can view beauty products with a part-crow mindset of “ooohprettyshinymewant,” I like to think I  have an equal amount of practicality.  I consider my approach to beauty as somewhat cerebral, if that’s possible.

I think that your beauty routine should:

1. Fit your lifestyle.  Heavy cat-eyes might be “in,” but if you don’t have time for it, do what works for you.

2. Fit your budget.  Fancy and expensive products aren’t the only options out there.

3.  Make you feel good about yourself.  If your beauty routine is as simple as applying a moisturizing sunscreen and a little lipgloss, and that is what makes you feel comfortable, I say go for it.  Not everyone is cut out for the Taylor Momsen look.  Actually, I’m not even sure Taylor is cut out for it, either.

4. Be flexible.  Consider colors, products, or techniques you haven’t used before.  Play around a bit.  Don’t be like the ladies who use the same eyeshadow they did twenty years ago.  This stuff is supposed to be fun! 

I am of the opinion that like your clothing and shoes, your makeup (or lack thereof) says something about you to the world.

Let’s make it a positive statement, shall we?

    My beauty routine consists of determining if I have to meet people that day, and if so, passing by the Chanel counter and asking if they’re doing makeovers.

    @rain- I’ve had horrible luck with counter makeovers. They usually make me look like a clown.
