And no, I am not sad (this is to the gentleman who emailed me), I just feel like a fool grinning to a camera at 7am some mornings. Call it lack of caffeine, not a lack of good things in my life. Speaking of good things, the biggest one is my 6'5″ tall hubby ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Yes, C means cool, they also have Neutral and Warm. I have read many places that yellow-based concealers help more with covering dark circles – the main reason i use concealer. I also feel that the C3 (which I own) is too pale of a concealer for me for some reason and looks a bit ghostly on my skin. I started with C3, but then wanted a warmer and slightly darker concealer, took in my C3 and used it as a base to judge the other colors and ended up happy with W4-5.

  2. I’ve been wondering about the L’Oreal True Match… I notice you use the C3 foundation (with C meaning Cool, yes?) and the W4-5 concealer (W means Warm?) – why the difference in number/letter? Why not use C3 foundation AND concealer? Just curious before I purchase my own…

  3. Don’t you just love tall men?? ๐Ÿ™‚ I think you look great – your hair color turned out gorgeous and your makeup is pretty. The black and white has provided some inspiration for my own outfit today! Thank you.
