My First Giveaway

If you are just here for the giveaway {which I know you are} skip the makeover process and what I bought and ENTER!
As you know I am in the process of a total extreme makeover, mom style.
Up first- MAKEUP! Why did I choose to do this first? It’s the easiest and I am lazy.  It’s also the most affordable option to start with. My first stop, Apothica! They carry all my faves {Stila, Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, etc.}, give 5% back, and have free shipping on orders over $49! SCORE! Sign me up!
While I will not switch from my mineral makeup, the one disservice I’ve been doing to myself {and the mineral makeup} is not using a primer, bad girl! First thing in my cart is Pur Minerals Under Control. Now my makeup won’t slide down my face before noon.
Next, I’m always on the hunt for new eye shadows. I have DARK brown eyes and they always say “wear plums” but I feel a little funny with purple on my eyes when I’m not wearing a complimentary color, am I the only one that feels that way? Browns are out for me, they just make my eyes look sunken in and by the end of the night my eyes look like I’ve pulled an all-nighter. And smokey eyes don’t work for EVERY occasion.  I NEEDED an every day eye shadow so looks like Too Faced Naked Eye Kit is the solution to my problem. It comes with step by step instructions on how to achieve 3 different looks {for dummies like me} and this set allows you to keep it simple for day or
play it up for night!For the past couple years my go to blush has been NARS in Orgasm but this frugal mama needed one that was more budget friendly, enter Pur Minerals Pressed Mineral Blush. I am a HUGE fan of mineral makeup and this is A LOT easier on my pocketbook {how old am I? 100?}
I also ordered Laura Geller Eyeliner. Do you know how hard it is to find eyeliner that last past noon? This one promises to be long lasting! Here’s hoping!
Mascara is never something I spend a lot of money on. But there’s no better time than during a makeover to splurge! Hello Stila Major Lash mascara!
I’ll do a complete review WITH before and after pics {for all you picture whores} BUT onto the reason you really clicked this link! Apothica would like to offer one {very lucky} Life After I "Dew" reader a $25 gift card to get yourself something pretty {and make yourself pretty}.  The rules are simple, follow my blog {required} and then post about Apothica on your blog, Twitter or Facebook and come back to tell me how much you love me {also required} which you did {bonus points for doing all 3} and KP will randomly pick a winner next week!  Please enter by Friday February 11th!  Good luck pretty girls!
