Happy Friday! I never knew what day it was this week… anyone else confused? It has been another long week over here. I’ve had to stop taking allergy medicine so I can be re-tested at the allergist on Monday. That plus the never-ending plague has resulted in not much sleep. Sorry for all of the sickly complaining lately- I am hoping to feel better soon and be back to my normal sarcastic self. 😉
Anyway… I have created my first YouTube video. I feel like such a jerk- what do I know? But it’s easier to show how to use the O! Wow Brush via video. This is my favorite foundation brush! I like it more than the Beauty Blender. For the video, please give me a little grace. I had to add some music to it because you could hear me breathing in the background. SO embarrassing. And sexy. It’s awful looking at your face in this manner… Also, I’m finally getting my hair done this weekend. Ready to say goodbye to these roots.
I would love if you’d subscribe to my YouTube Channel! One of my goals this year is to create more tutorials. I’m going to have to suck it up and deal- not everything can be eloquently described without a video.
Anyway, I applied the foundation to my face using the applicator from the bottle. I used more than normal for purposes of the tutorial! Use a push and pull motion to blend. I finish the blending by swirling/polishing the product. I’ve never been a huge fan of foundation brushes because the bristles are too hard- but this. THIS brush has the softest bristles ever. You will be amazed! The O! Wow brush can also be used to apply primer, concealer, and blush, though I only use it for foundation. It provides the best airbrush finish.
I purchased the O! Wow brush on Amazon and actually got it for $17. It’s a bit higher now, but will no doubt be on sale again!
If you don’t want to invest that much in a brush, give the dupe a try! I don’t notice a huge difference in the two products: the O! Wow brush is designed to more easily allow you to blend into smaller places, like the corner of your nose and under your eyes. But to me, that’s about it!
You can’t beat the price for the KingMas version. However, it takes nearly a month to ship! I’m impatient but the price is worth the wait.
What do you think? Would you try these brushes? PS: MAC has a version of this brush as well!
I have a couple of more fun things for you today: Tia from Hands On, Pants Off is here! Tia was one of the first bloggers I “met” when I started this space two years ago. She has been there from the beginning and is a breath of fresh air when I need some realness (or a kick in the pants). She’s a bad ass, honest, hilarious lady who knows how to have fun, even in the midst of hard times.
Give us your elevator speech and tell us about your blog!
I have two bulldogs that are the biggest pains in my ass and loves of my life.
Oh, and we have a really big cat too.
I do strive to make my photos beautiful, but my life is far from perfect.
I try to write as if my readers and I haven’t talked to each other for a while and I’m excited to clue you in to the latest adventure. Only I do all the talking.
I try to write with my own voice, which can be crude and sarcastic at times.
Okay….most of the time. 😉
This is mine.
Life is made in seasons, and you have to laugh as much as possible along the way.
The brand really does make a difference.
If my mama used them and never got a major wrinkle….then I will absolutely follow suit.

One of the great features of the new home was the entire property is fenced in.
We knew our dogs had never had so much off-leash freedom before (they don’t play well with others).
I will never forget the look on their little wrinkley faces and the sheer exhilaration as they ran, side by side, full speed to the other end of our property. Up and down the grassy hills, in the woods, out of the woods, sniffing and peeing on everything they could.
All the stress and tears and frustrations were absolutely worth it.
This home will bring us many, many more joyful memories.
And don’t forget, there’s still time to enter this $145 PayPal cash giveaway!
