Has your beauty routine changed as you’ve gotten older? Share!
I’m more concerned with texture – can’t get away with some of the high-shine, metallic-y textures on the skin as much as I used to. Sometimes I don’t care, because it’s pretty and the only one I’m trying to make happy with makeup is me, but I definitely appreciate a really flattering texture more now than I used to.

How has your weekend been treating you thus far? My husband and I had our date night last night, which is quite low key: we have a nicer dinner out and avoid checking our phones, ha! I also reorganized my makeup bathroom a bit more and separated my brushes out by type/shape so I can find them better while doing my makeup.
What I love about the color of pewter is the variety… it can lean cool, silvery or warmer, more like a dirty, antique gold. Here are a few of my favorites:
- Sephora Lunar Eclipse — a sparkling silver and gold mix
- MAC Antique Diamond — a medium-dark pewter with warm undertones
- Dior Etoile — a light, shimmering silver and gold
- Sugarpill Tiara — – a silver-leaning pewter
- L’Oreal Gilded Envy — a dark pewter with bronze and antique gold shimmer

What lighting do you prefer for applying makeup? Share!
I like really bright lights, and preferably, ones that aren’t hot! I love the brightness of the lights I have now, but they’re SO hot that I feel like I’ll sweat all my makeup off before I’m done sometimes!

I love a good highlighter, which I’m sure comes as no surprise to regular readers! Many of my favorites are limited edition, but I also have a few favorites that you can get year-round and never have to worry about running out of. Check ‘em out:

- Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight — pale, golden beige
