Minimal Summer 2016 Makeup Look For Work (Daytime Bold Lip)

A brief respite amongst the 30 minute videos! (though if you like those, don’t worry – come back on Wednesday). Boston has been CRAZY DISGUSTING GROSS summer weather. Yesterday my acupuncturist referred to it as “anti-Mercedes weather.” So true. The makeup I wear to work has become even more minimal as I take the T to work and end up walking a lot, schvitzing all over. Anyway – hope you enjoy this little makeup vid today! I hope I don’t get flagged for using this Caia track either – took me back to c.2005/2006 when I was super into ambient/lounge/chillout beats. Bliss. Why am I rambling so much here I never write this much as an intro! xoxo, mercedes.

Disclaimer and a word on integrity: All products I talk about here on L’amour et la Musique are purchased with my own money, unless I explicitly mention that it was given to me either as a “PR sample” or gifted to me by friends/subscribers/et cetera. I will ALWAYS be fully transparent about any products given to me for review, that I did not seek out or purchase of my own accord. It is one of the biggest issues I have with YouTube – that many bloggers and YouTubers have just become a means to market products. That’s not why I do this. There is a huge difference between giving a rave to a product you researched and hemmed and hawed about spending your own money on, versus something given to you to test out. So, long-winded way of saying: all opinions expressed are entirely my own, and I strongly value honesty and integrity in real life and here on YouTube.
