I’ve heard some say that one should never put on makeup in public. I disagree. It’s not the act of putting on makeup that’s tacky, it’s how some women do it.
You know that beaten up compact that holds the last precious pieces of a favorite powder? Or, the lip gloss that’s seen so much action, you now have to dig the applicator around the sides of the tube as if you’re on a treasure hunt? Leave those at home.
I have a small jar full of crushed pieces of a once-compact-powder-blush that I just love. I use it nearly every day, but I don’t take it on the road.
What I do take with me everywhere, however, is a Model Mirror from Les Tai Tai (pronounced lay tie tie). This chic compact boasts built in LED lights ideal for any low-light situation, think club, dark restrooms, airplane cabins and the like. The light turns on and off via a button on the right side of the mirror. The Model Mirror also offers up 2X magnification on the illuminated side.
Available in a variety of designs, I’m enamored with the Excuse Moi and Good as Gold designs, shown here. Also taken with the collection are celebrities such as Mila Kunis, Alexa Chung and Gisele Bündchen.
Model Mirrors are available for $25 online at lestaitai.com. Plus, one of my pretties will win the Good as Gold design this week. Just leave a comment below and let me know which design from lestaitai.com that you most adore!
Happy Freebie Friday, my pretties -)
