Cream Blush

I am a huge fan of cream blush.  I used to not wear it because I thought it would be too heavy.  As I have gotten older, I find it works better for my skin than a powdered blush.

I actually never wore blush until I reached my forties!  Since I have rosacea, I have a lot of trouble with skin redness.  It was really bad when I was younger, and I was always self-conscious about it.  When I was a young girl, I had a teacher tell me I shouldn’t be wearing so much makeup.  Well, I wasn’t even wearing makeup at the time!  My skin was just that red!  Later when I did wear makeup, I would have a lot of trouble covering all the redness with foundation.  It wasn’t until one day after I turned forty that I looked in the mirror and thought I really look pale. LOL!  That is when I realized maybe I actually could use a little blush – I guess I finally outgrew some of the redness.

L’Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blush is my absolute favorite blush.  I feel like it really does perk up my complexion and gives me a “lift.”  I also think it gives me a nice soft natural glow that I haven’t been getting with powdered blushes lately.  It only takes a little bit and doesn’t feel too heavy.  I used the Visible Lift in pink all summer.  Now, I have it in berry which is really nice for fall and winter.  It also comes in several other colors including coral and peach.  I’ve heard the color peach looks good on all skin tones.  Yet, I always tend to go for pink or berry colors.  What’s been your experience?  Do any of you ladies like peach blush?

Strength To Give Yourself A Break

“I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”  Philippians 4:13

I am a perfectionist.  I want to achieve many things small and big – all as perfectly as possible.  I think about this verse from time to time when I’m stressed out, tired, running behind, or trying to do too many things at once.  I also think about this verse when I’m trying to write a new devotional for a post.  I don’t want to force the words to come out or not listen for God’s voice to tell me what to say.  I also don’t want to let y’all down and sometimes feel bad for leaving a Bible verse without a full devotional.  I question if I should even blog that day.  Yet, I want to keep up interest in my blog at the same time.

With all of this in mind, it suddenly hit me that maybe I need strength in Christ to give myself a break.  After all, he gives us strength to do ALL things.  Maybe some of these things are strength to give up perfection, strength to say no to what we can’t handle, or strength to say when it is time to rest.  I know I will never be perfect.  So today, I ask Christ to give me strength to let go of perfection and give myself a break.  He will guide me each day about what to put in this space whether I say anything or not.

Are you trusting Christ for the strength to give yourself a break, let go of the things you don’t need to be doing, and rest in his arms?

  1. I haven’t tried cream blush in years, but I need to give it another go. It looks beautiful on you!
    And I love the devotional. I can be SUCH a perfectionist too, so I understand your struggle. I think taking time to rest is much needed and something I don’t do nearly enough!

  2. This blush does give you a nice glow. It looks very pretty. Thank you for the recommendation – I think I’ll try it.

    I have been working hard the last few years to overcome being a perfectionist. With prayer and a lot of effort, I’ve made progress! Your words are encouraging. I enjoy your blog whether the post is simple or lengthy. You’re doing a great job.

    Have a nice weekend.
