La Casabloga-Meditation

As March is coming to a close and April is slowly sneaking up on us, I thought it would be appropriate to share this “Stress-Relieving” post for April, also known as Stress Awareness Month.

Lately, I have been trying to be more of a minimalist when it comes to makeup. Having grown older (and hopefully wiser) I have learned that the caked-on makeup face is just not all that cute anymore-if it ever really was. Typically I just layer on some foundation, powder, eyeliner, and mascara and I’m out the door. But time and time again, I tend to gravitate towards these items (pictured above), because they have never let me down and I have found them to be so useful. Some I use on a daily basis and others more sparingly. Regardless I love them all the same!
