I bought a rather spendy green creamy concealer for the redness I have on my face. After I used it, I couldn’t get it to blend and cover as nicely as it did when the SA did it. It just looked chalky and uneven. […]

body lotion, body wash, Dove bars, cotton pads, q-tips, orange sticks, lip balm (EOS).

I use a lighter hand with products that are inclined to fading or creasing i.e. foundations. eye shadow, liner. I blend, blend, blend, then I use a light dusting of very translucent finishing power, (elf makes a […]

I would say in foundaton and lipstick it is woth the splurge. Eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara, finishing powder and highlighters have great drug store substiutes .

I think
Kat Von D would be a great place to start. The cosmetics offer ease of application and great color pigmentation.

Most looks I like I KNOW I can’t pull off are those that are simply not for women over 45. I think once a women gets to be of a certain age, she must take her makeup more seriously. That is not to say trend […]

I forgot to mention, scrupulously groomed brows are a MUST!

I stay really neutral with my eye shadows, no brights or light pastels to fight with my eyeglass frames. My glasses prescription magnifies the appearance of my eyes somewhat, so I take it easy with the eyeliner […]

I really like Milani’s Luminoso blush! It is easily a dupe for NARS Orgasm and has incredible staying powder. I also think it glides on much easier than the NARS. I found it accidentally when we were out of […]
