On my mind - late night edition
Here's a late night episode of what's on my mind. First, I'm wearing Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue eau de toilette. It's a nice warm citrus that comes off with distinct citrus notes mixed with a slightly spicy and musky base. Generally I prefer more crisp and optimistic citruses, however D&G Light blue is a nice way for me to mix things up. It's a comfortable scent that feels right when I'm settling down for the evening.
I've gotten into the habit of giving myself evening manicures every few days. There's nothing quite relaxing like painting your nails. Tonight I took my bottle of Butter London Pink Ribbon on its maiden manicure. Pink Ribbon is a light sheer pink. I've become quite obsessed with sheer and pale pink polishes lately. They make one feel polished (if I may say so).
Finally, I know I'll be sleeping well tonight because I know I've found a good foundation routine for the coming days. I've been feeling a little off with my colors and finishes lately (though Chanel Perfection Lumiere has been a good go-to). Today I had the brilliant idea to mix one squirt of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua B10 with one squirt of B20. I loved the result. It was a great color match. I really must be between colors at this point. I remembered how much I like the feel and finish of Chanel Vitluamiere Aqua. It's glowy and comfortable. I like to think of it as a slightly more pigmented version of a tinted moisturizer. My skin's been good lately, so this is the way to go.
Thanks for reading! Do late night makeup thoughts pop into your head too? Are you a foundation mixer? This is the first time I've done it!
