This month we celebrate September’s birthstone, the gorgeous Sapphire.  Sapphires are known for their gorgeous, blue to blue-violet color but they actually come in a wide range of colors including pink, yellow, peach, and orange.  Sapphires can be found all over the world, but the most valuable ones come from Sri Lanka, Myanmar (now Burma), and Kashmir.  The most prized sapphires are deep blue to blue-violet.  Since ancient times, this gemstone represented “honesty, loyalty, purity and trust”.  Sapphire is the Greek word for “blue”.

Here’s yesterday’s makeup.  As we get closer to Fall, the weather’s getting milder and the makeup starts to increase.  Fall is also the weather for layers, which makes me very happy.

I didn’t realize how much I missed wearing full makeup.  Since humidity kills makeup, I tend to wear it light in the summer.  I do like how I wore my makeup, yesterday.  My eyebrows need some work, though.

Love & Shimmies,

Dasia Denise
