An Introduction.

While Teri is super busy finishing up a great feature for you that will be posted here on Wednesday, I thought I would lend a hand and write a few posts while she continues being the busy little worker bee.

But first, let me take a moment and introduce myself to you.

My name is Cindi, and around here I am the "assistant". 

I am a maniac makeup addict. I get so excited about makeup it is scary. When I attended my first CEW Beauty Awards Demonstration a few years ago, I went back to my hotel room and cried. I had two tote bags full of makeup, skin care, and fragrance products that I needed to try and vote on. And I am proud to say that I did try each and every single product I received. And I found something to love about everything I tried.

For the fun facts. I am 30 years old, married, with one little girl. I have very fair Irish skin with some freckles, medium golden blonde hair (more reddish gold than blonde), and green eyes. My facial skin is usually on the normal side, but I battle with a few dry spots in the winter. The rest of my body tends to be very dry, especially my legs. I am on a never-ending quest to find a body cream that keeps my legs soft and smooth with only one application in the day.

I absolutely adore mineral makeup. I use either Illuminare liquid foundation, Bare Escentuals, or Sheer Cover for my foundation every day.  I find that the minerals cover my redness and last all through the day. Ooooh - and I just got to try some newness from Jane Iredale, and I will be sure to report on that really soon. Beside that, I am game to just about anything.  I love trying new products and colors and am never afraid. I may cause a bit of rubber-necking from passers-by in the school line or at the grocery store. But hey, what can I say - I love to experiment with bold colors. And it is only makeup. I can wash it away at the end of the day and start with a fresh new canvas tomorrow.

I look forward to your comments, and hope to bring you a little insight into my passion for makeup and everything beautiful!

Hi Cindi,
Welcome!! I was just reading your personal introduction, and I have the solution to the problem dry legs you experience in the winter. It's a body cream made by Matis Paris called SOS Nutrition cream. You'll love it!!
Hi Cindi! Nice to meet you. Thanks for introducing yourself, and can't wait to read more from you!!
Thanks so much for the "welcome" ladies. It is very nice to meet you all.

Lisa - I will have to try that cream. Thanks for the suggestion.

Erika - Thanks for the compliment. I use Nice and Easy Medium Golden Blonde, over my already strawberry blonde hair!
