I also wear lipstick but not red so much... more pinkish shades... a bit more subtle than red.

I love lipstains too. My fave gemma cosmetics one was discontinued so it's good to see other brands mentioned in this thread.
I sometimes tint my lashes at home with that 1000 hour stuff.

Fantastic thread OP!!!
Last week I decided that I wasn't going to allow myself any excuses for feeling like crap anymore.
I went through my entire wardrobe and threw out anything that I would not wear in public! I had held onto some shocking stuff for 'wearing around the house' but knew that it was ridiculous. I also threw out a lot of stuff that I no longer wear and have about 1/4 of my wardrobe left.
I now need to go shopping but I am going to reassess the way I shop. Going to have a minimum standard. Eg my bumming around clothes will be comfy jeans and plain singlets. That way I can still dress them up with a chunky necklace/scarf, cardi and nice flats or boots coming into the cooler weather. I will get a few dresses that can be dressed up or down too. And a few nice woolen jumpers.
I too love to slap on some bright red lippy from time to time. I also like headbands. I have long hair so when I want to look presentable and can't be bothered washing and blow waving my hair, I chuck it in a bun with a headband for an instant lift.
Otherwise really natural makeup with a tiny bit of colour on the cheeks and lips makes a big difference.

I always feel better wearing a spf 30+ moisturiser. Unfortunately, I'm prone to pigmentation anyway I think due to hormones as I've been wearing sunscreen on my face for years and years but it makes me feel less guilty when going outside.
Over that I use a tiny bit of foundation on any red/spotty bits, mascara, bit of blush and a spf 30+ lip gloss.
On weekends I wear a bit of eyeliner, but not a horrid black line over my eyes - I do 'tightlining' between the lashes so it's nice and subtle but makes a nice difference.
Unfortunately my hair cannot make up its mind between wavy and straight and is just absolutely awful so I wash and straighten my hair twice a week and that smooths it out.

I think we must have similar hair Benji it's sooooo annoying isn't it? I can leave it wavy if i let it air dry but i end up looking like a crazy person cause its too thick and wavy and all over the place. I have to smooth mine out too. I dream of getting that keratin straightening stuff
Chameleon tinting prices vary depending on where you live and different slaons. I an not close to the cbd so everything is cheaper out my way usually. I pay around $18 for lash tinting. It's worth it though you have the colour you want without all that silly clumping that mascara gives you plus all your lashes are perfectly separated and defined without makeup. And it's allways a bonus when you can rub your eyes and not look like a panda afterwards
Lash perming is more expensive but if you can afford it, it makes a huge difference to your eyes. Makes them look bigger too.

Before kids i would never leave the house without make up on - now I never put it on. One beauty regime I can't forfeit is painting my toe nails. If they are chipped or unsightly I feel so horrid so always make the time for my toes to be done!

One of those mums.... I am in the process of doing that too!!
I realised I have alot of clothes, but not alot of nice clothes to wear out! So I went through my cupboard and stayed strong and got out anything that didn't fit, was faded, or old... 3 garbage bags later I finished lol... Vinnies is going to love me
So I'm now in the process of shopping for new things and have also taken a different outlook as to how I shop for clothes... I try on things I wouldn't normally look at and things that I wouldn't nessesarily go for... And It's surprising what suits me!!!
I'm also buying outfits... So instead of buying 5 tops. I buy 2 tops that I can wear with jeans, and a necklace and bracelet that match both... I get 2 new outfits that way

And when I'm done, I will follow the tips in this thread and get some new rags:
And get some new make-up essentials!
The hot mama shall be released! Grrrrr. *sexy growl*
