So I got the job…

Whew what a rollercoaster! After the audition, they told us we’d be notified by the 23rd. That was just to distract us. Turns out I was kind of already in. So stoked! My coach RJ tricked me by telling me that he needed to see me to ‘strategize’ how to get the position. I was panicked… but I showed up and put on my best face. He completely set me up. I took a class (taught by him) and at the end he announced me (and three of my colleages) at the end of class! There were tears, there were hugs… it was awesome.

Since then I’ve taught my first class (so EPIC). My next class is on Tuesday. I love it. I love everything about it. I really feel like I’m doing what I was made to do… indescribable. Kind of amazing.

Meanwhile, makeup happened…

I got the new NARS foundation. It’s definitely a ‘one drop’ kind of formula. A little goes an incredibly long way. You can so overdo it. The finish is flawless though. Beware of cake face. That’s all I’m saying.

I also got the Laneige BB Cream (and eventually the Amore Pacific version… Laneige is better even though it’s made by Amore Pacific and $30 cheaper). I can’t describe how good it is. I look luminous, but not shiny. Lookit:

The smoothing and brightening properties of the Laneige cream is epic. The coverage is sheer to medium, but somehow there’s not a single flaw. It’s diffusing and weightless and wonderful… and did I mention that it has an SPF of 50? Love Love LOVE.

So once upon a time I stumbled into a Corepower Yoga Studio… now I’m teaching there. Life happens when you’re making plans. I’m overjoyed at every moment. Really.

  1. I knew you were in!!! Congratulations!
    What color are you wearing in the new NARS foundation? I’m bouncing between Tahoe and Cadiz. Both have looked good on different days. It’s definitely too much coverage for my everyday look. I would mostly reserve this for evenings out.

  2. Thank you so much Linda! I’m wearing Tahoe. It can be a little light during the summer, but Cadiz has too much red for me. I feel your pain on the matchup… I can get away with both but Tahoe matches my undertones better. I use a little bronzer in the summer to warm it up around the edges of my face. The coverage is EPIC. The first time I put it on I looked like I worked for Cirque du Soliel! Just cake face to death…

    1. It’s funny you say that. The first time I used it I also put too much on. I felt like Little Miss Makeup. Agreed about the Cadiz being too red. It looks okay in the morning, but by the end of the day I can tell it’s off. Tahoe sometimes look a touch light though so I’ve been adding bronzer to my perimeters.

  3. Hey Shahada! I know I’m late but congratulations on following your dream!

    I’ve been curious about the Laniege BB cushion for awhile. Which shade do you use? I hope the darkest shade works for me (NW45-NC50).
