I had a lovely morning in the salon this week (love you Patty, Doug and Jamie!). While I was there, I ran into a very sweet client and she said to me, "Stacey, you look so well-rested!" You'd better believe I hugged her. Her compliment has stayed with me for three days now, and I feel good about myself every time I remember her words. Granted, I had just had risen from my salon chair, so I was pretty darn relaxed and refreshed at that moment. But let's be honest. If you've ever visited my blog before, you'll know that I am the mother of three young children. One of those children is still a baby. Her older sister slips into our bed in the middle of the night, five out of seven nights a week. I am a perpetual night owl, and my husband wakes extremely early. I don't believe I've slept a solid night through in almost two years. Suffice it to say that I am never, ever, EVER well-rested.
My client is not the only person to mention that to me recently, though; I have to believe that there is something to this "well-rested" look after all.
Of course there is. Wanna know my secret.....?
I have used it for years. I love it and never feel guilty about paying for it. It's worth every penny. Granted, I am perfectly happy with inexpensive, drugstore-brand nail polish and mascara. But I absolutely refuse to compromise on my concealer. Chanel is the clear winner. This product is so light-weight, and it holds up well to the humidity here in Florida. My dark under-eye circles are hereditary, allergy-induced, and a result of chronic sleep-deprivation (like most mamas I know). But this? This is the very best I've tried. Other than sleeping a solid 8 hours every night, of course. ;)
I would highly recommend this concealer to any mama who is preparing for a photo shoot. Especially if you have long days and short nights like I do!
Happy Saturday, friends. Enjoy your weekend, and stay up late if you want. Use a little of this magic under your eyes on Monday morning and regret nothing.
You are most welcome.
