So this happened:
I graduated! We got this non-slip yoga mat during the ceremony… CorePower’s way of saying ‘good job!’ There were tons of smiles, lots and lots and LOTS of tears. I cried off all my makeup. Dammit. But I was kinda cute before the waterworks started. Observe:
So the training has wreaked ALL KINDS OF HAVOC on my skin. Not to worry, I promise you that I’m setting this madness straight with a peel. Maybe this weekend. My skin is so rude. Just cystic pimples and spots… THE SPOTS. Friggin’ hyperpigmentation. You know what? Not cute. I promise all will be well soon. Hmph.
In the meantime, I used Tom Ford Traceless Perfecting Foundation to even out the madness. That stuff is GENIUS. My color is Caramel (thank you to my girl Gabi for matching me sight unseen!). There was no time on Earth to go to a store and look at it so I had Gabi just take a look, and pick out my color. Stuff’s PERFECT. So weightless, and very easily buildable (without looking like you built anything). Ya’ll have no idea how many spots I had to deal with. And the brows… oh the brows. My tech was sick the day before graduation, so I had to see about making them work myself. I know… #lagirlproblems. So raggedy. But lookit, this was a big deal and I wanted to look my best.
Teacher Training kicked my butt, wrung me out, and hung me up to dry. But I’m a million times better for it. It has changed everything about me that I thought I knew, and had made me so excited for the journey ahead. I’m going for Extensions (advanced training) in a few weeks. If ya’ll thought I was frazzled now…
This time, I’m keeping a peel handy (I haven’t used it in so long that I lost it and had to order another bottle) to take care of this skin. I love the foundation, But I really want to wear less of it, so that more of me can truly shine through.
