This gal is a proud farmer and I like make-up

Trust me the two can go together.

I think one of the reasons why I love my life so much is I truly get to do something I am passionate about every day - farm, play with cattle, speak about agriculture, the list goes on. I found it funny last night when two of my Twitter friends, who are both agriculture girls, @LBelleoftheBlog and @jenlynndewey started chatting (tweeting) about our love for make-up, because frankly that is another passion of mine. I love make-up.

Laura - LBelleoftheBlog has recently moved to an area of the country that MAC make-up stores aren't that prevalent. Kind of like my no MAC stores in Iowa situation. She started to tweet about the MAC products that fortunately the mailman had delivered. Jennifer - jenlynndewey quickly joined in on the conversation. And it turned into what our new favorite make-up products are.


Jennifer is oohing over this Kat Von D Eye Shadow Palette.


My own recent make-up MAC purchases. I am loving this new Pro Longwear Lip Creme called Postively Dashing. It stayed on through the afternoon, burgers, guacamole, and sangria. Perfect for girls that don't have time to be touching up their make-up all the time. The eyeshadow is called Antiqued - kind of a red/brown/coppery color, and then Studio Fix Foundation. 

The thing is that we have spent plenty of time around livestock, pastures and crops, and yet we still like to have a little girly side. Maybe no matter how much you smell like a cow you can't hide you inner fashionista.

I changed by Crystal Cattle Facebook page profile picture today. I love these agriculture banners that Bella Spur has created. Check out this album to choose your own agriculture banner. Maybe they can make me one that say proud to be a farmer that love make-up!

    1. Don't be scared to check it out. Although the ladies in there may be wearing a lot of make-up they know how to tone it down for anyone. I love that the make-up lasts through the day, and you only need a little bit so it lasts a long time. Check out their website they have a dealer locator.

  4. I am due for a trip to the MAC store. I am super lucky that I have the store next door at work. Or, in my husband's eye, it's rather unlucky! :)

  7. I rarely wear makeup because I live out in the sticks and rarely see people! Haha! But when I do wear makeup, it's the drugstore kind and I don't like it! I am hoping on my next trip to the big city (Billings, MT...ha) that I can go to Sephora at JCP's and find some makeup that I like! I did just order some UrbanDecay eyeshadow yesterday, so I'm starting to branch out! I will definitely have to try MAC as I've heard you and many others rave about it! Thanks for keeping this recluse in the know about beauty products! :)

  8. I wore makeup to brand calves yesterday. A little much? Nope! I thank God that we can order makeup online or else I'd be stuck with the drugstore stuff all the time. I also think it's great to occasionally go to the department store makeup counter and have them help you out when you can every couple years because it's a great way to find new products for you, not just based on other people's opinions.

  9. This post is so true! There is always room for a girly fashonista side for country girls!
