When I was five the best present you could get in a goodie bag was a temporary tattoo – bonus points to the birthday girl or boy if it had glitter on it. That fad died as we grew up and then suddenly came back with a vengeance on the swim team in college – we thought temporary tats were a great accessory at big meets. Does it make sense? No. Was it fun? Absolutely. Again like the childhood fad, that quickly lost its appeal and I have not thought about them in years.
Then I saw one of my favorite fashion bloggers and past style icons, Annabelle Fleur, wearing what she called a beauty mark over the weekend in this post and it re-sparked my interest I liked her gold feather but did not think too much of it but when she still had it on in yesterday’s post I knew I just had to have it!
Hers is a bit more glitzy then any of the ones I had ever used – the site describes them as “a collection of gold, silver, or black foil designs to adorn your face and body” and looking at all of the pretty designs I was shocked that they were only $12. True, it is a bit pricy for something temporary but with so many options these BeautyMarks – The New Makeup by Mr. Kate are just too awesome to pass up. I have not even bought them yet or seen them in person but seriously, how cool are these? (And no, this is not a sponsored post, I just thing they are awesome!)
As if I needed an extra push while on the site I saw a comment that Aimee Song had worn them so of course I had to go check find out when! It turns out she had two different gold tattoos on that infamous Reward Style trip to Cabo that only the best of the best bloggers got to go on. Aimee is another one of my style icons and who I actually met last summer and you can find the photos below in this post.
For $12 I just have to have them, the real question is, when do I wear one?
