SAN FRANCISCO BOUND + BEAUTY BOOTY

 I have been wanting to get a shot of clouds like this, for like forever, I am glad I was finally able to. If you are reading this on Wednesday morning I am on a plane headed back to San Francisco.  This trip I won't be able to play tourist, I looked at the schedule and I am booked solid from the time I land until the time I leave.  Last trip I had to stay an impromptu evening in the city because my photographer never showed up. I had no change of clothes, or other sundries and had to procure sub-supplies at the local Walgreen's--yes, I did buy an 'I love SF' t-shirt, it was $3.99 and clearly in my budget.  I couldn't go to the shoot the following morning without makeup (scare the clients), so I had to make 'if you were stuck on deserted island' cosmetic buying decisions.  I bought foundation (with SPF), mascara (of course, I never leave the house without it), and blush. I wasn't sure if this was going to be a complete disaster but as fortune would have it the foundation is my new most favorite ever, a drop goes a long way, it's light but covers everything, just fabulous!  I love it and want to marry it.  At $12.99 I hope it says yes. The blush was also the greatest color, very light. It was a powder and I am more a cream blush girl but I got compliments all day.  L'oreal always makes the best mascara, you really can't go wrong with any of their formulas but I bought their new natural.  Just like that I have new budget make-up that I adore and will be happy to use as long as they make it (or I fall out of love with it, whichever comes first).

Beautiful pics! What blush and mascara did you use? The link isn't working on my end. :)

I *LOVE* Cover Girl's foundations. They have such great coverage.

LOVE the second shot too. Like, I want to have a print of that...

Have fun in San Fran! I'm sure you were gorgeous even with your emergency makeup finds. How did it work out? Did you end up taking the photos yourself? Deets girl!

That second picture (of the balconies) is breathtaking. Well they are all fabulous but that one is just beautiful and such soothing, pretty colors.
