The month of October ,being breast cancer awareness month ,hits very close to home for me .My mother is a cancer survivor, having being diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago.. She had a mastectomy and a year of gruelling chemotherapy and radiation. Throughout it all she never lost hope and she never let us see her cry .when all of her hair fell out she joked and said she hopes that when it grows back,it grows back straight (we both have unruly frizzy hair). She would tie headscarves and always managed to look good despite it all. She and all the other strong women out there ,who have battled this disease and are battling it, are my inspiration to always appreciate good health above wealth ,It is truly priceless!
Onto a lighter note ,my five picks for October ,I keep it simple during the summer and these products really help me in doing so :
KIEHL'S super multi corrective cream : Beauty bulletin made me a part of their review Club some time back and ever since I have not gone without this cream .It has actually what allows me to skip foundation because of the wonders it has done for my skin.
AVON cc cream : I love this , it has a spf of 50 ! What a must have for summer ! It adds a nice glow to my complexion with just enough coverage.
ESPECIALLY ESCADA shimmer powder : I love shimmer and thought since I'm going really minimal with my look this summer ,I'd spruce it up with some glorious shimmer, which I apply to my cheeks.
ESSENCE eyeliner pen : my look isn't complete without eyeliner and this one from essence is not only cheap but effective as well.
AVON 3D lipstick : I'm a sucker for pout enhancing lippies and this one so does it for me .Red is my color this summer !
So beauties these are my top 5 for October . I'm really enjoying the natural look!
