Beware of mineral makeup when getting your picture taken. Your face may look perfect in person, but minerals do not photograph well. Unless they are specifically formulated to be matte, most minerals have light reflecting properties. They give a beautiful glow in natural light. But they don’t hold up to the scrutiny of a camera. This is especially true of today’s high-definition cameras.
For a camera-ready look of flawless skin, e.l.f. cosmetics has come to the rescue.
This loose powder gives a whisper soft, flawless look to your skin. The powder is very fine and very lightweight. You won’t feel it on your skin but you’ll notice the effects. Use it as a finishing powder over your other makeup. I apply it after I’ve done my foundation, blush, the whole face. It provides a matte finish without looking dull and it hides the pores on my nose. I use the puff that is included but you could also use a fluffy brush like a kabuki brush. Don’t be alarmed that the powder is pure white. It will not make your face look white when applied.
My television has been busted now for about two months. And for some reason, I have been too lazy to buy a new one. And you know what? I don’t really miss it. Apart from the late-night reruns of That 70s Show and the ocassional Jane Austen miniseries, I don’t really watch much TV. I caught up on Glee by watching free episodes on their Web site. Gossip Girl has jumped the shark. And the news in full of hate.
Try to do without your television for a while. It’s very liberating.
On this date in 1813, Jane Austen’s Pride and Pejudice was first published in England. One of the world’s most beloved books, it has gone on to sell over 20 million copies worldwide and has had many dramatic adaptations.
Here is a scene from my favorite movie version starring Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennet and Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy.
