Last week was a week that I wish wasn’t a week at all. It was a test of a lot of things for me: faith, strength, and fortitude. I pretty much stripped my calendar of everything that was self-care: Yoga, meditation, and fun workshops. But I kept one appointment. I had to reschedule it because of the week I wish wasn’t, and I am so glad that I did.
Dark under-eye circles have been my companion since I was 9 years old if not earlier childhood pictures reveal. I came to understand that beauty sleep was not an expression but a requirement for me as anything less than 8 hours dooms me to the raccoon look. I know I’m well-rested if my dark circles disappear. And I know I am on vacation when my skins bronzes all over until the circles disappear.
When I discovered Blacbox and Jacque Mgido I found her orange color corrector and blush on her website. She claimed it was the key to erasing dark undereye circles, so I decided to give it a try. Concealer alone always looked unnatural to me, a bit of a reverse raccoon look. I never opened the pot but added it to my collection of makeup for when I would be brave enough to try it.
My 20 minute make up lesson with the Hollywood pro from Zimbabwe was absolutely delightful and lifted my spirits at a time when they so desperately needed lifting. AND I learned how to brighten up my eyes (I have to work on my blending skills), with the added bonus of learning how to define my brows. I will admit, I’ve got pretty good eyebrows, to begin with. But after my lesson, they are proper rock star.
Thank you Blacbox for introducing me to Jacque Mgido. I will be forever grateful. Thank you Jacque Mgido for sharing your knowledge, power, and gifts with me. I’ll see you next time for false eyelash lessons!
