I used spironolactone to clear up my cystic acne and it has kept it at bay for years!

Warm washcloth, moisturizing vitamin c serum, gel moisturizer and daytime eye serum.

The same one I use year round, Pur Minerals 4-in-1 pressed powder foundation.

NO, a makeup artist I am not.

Only when I have cried and then hugged my husband.

I am not brand loyal to any specific cosmetic line. For instance, I love MAC eyeshadow, but there lipstick dries my lips out like crazy. There are good products and not so good products in every line. […]

eyes…..I have one blue eye and one green eye. People notice them all of the time and compliment me on them.

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!
