“make sure and hide the brushstrokes”


“My mother always said, ‘You’re painting a masterpiece, make sure to hide the brush strokes.’”  

~Betty Draper


Dear Betty, how I have missed you!  Often when I’m blogging, I like music or movies playing in the background for inspiration.  I must say a constant source of inspiration for me is the show Mad Men.  I live for the fashion, the history, and the drinks!  Betty continues to be my favorite character and the quote above is a perfect example of why.

Beauty is the theme that runs throughout the show.  We all want to be beautiful, and we all want to enhance our natural beauty.  Like Betty’s mom said, “make sure and hide the brush strokes.”  I’m always on the lookout for my next favorite product that makes me feel like a masterpiece.

Recently, when I ordered a new Shu Uemura eyelash curler (DO NOT purchase them on Amazon, they are fake only purchase them on shuuemura-usa.com) they gave me a free sample of cleansing oil…

I’ve never thought of using oil to clean my face but I’m amazed by this product.  It cleans and leaves my skin feeling so smooth.  Also it doesn’t cause my skin to breakout!  The price tag is steep but only a few drops of this product is needed to work.

Do you have new favorite product?  Please share!
