I don’t wear a lot of makeup.  I really don’t wear a lot of makeup when it’s hot outside.  I have to do a little something with my eyes.  (I’ve written before how my husband and sons have been blessed in the brow and eyelash area.  Me – not so much.)  Fortunately, my skin is relatively clear.  Also, I have nice lips – a little gloss or lip color and I’m good to go. 

My lips are where I have fun with makeup.  In the summer, I love lip glosses.  It’s the ultimate hot weather beauty pick-me-up.  I’m constantly looking for new ones to try out.  My current favorite is Eyes Lips Face’s “Trophy Wife”. I like the name.  (I’m my husband’s “trophy wife”.  Okay, I’m only his wife, but I just like the way trophy wife sounds.  I am a prize.  He is too.)  I like that the mineral formula is smooth when I apply it to my lips.  I like that the gloss looks good alone and on top of my other lipsticks.  I like that it gives my lips a nice shine without being too greasy looking.  (I hate when lip glosses make me look like I’m wearing Vaseline or like I just finished eating a bucket of fried chicken!)  Most of all, I love that it makes my lips look luscious – something that my husband especially appreciates!
