8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends {Part 2}

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips
Hello! It’s Day 5 of 31 Days Of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips! Yesterday I shared four of the 8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends, so today I’ll share the rest of them with you. Let’s get started!

5. Pink or peach blush-This is a look I can go with! Soft pink and peach blushes seem to be the trend. So ditch those brown and dark blushes for a pink or peach.

A pretty blush that is perfect for fall! There are several colors to choose from.

6. The Cat Eye- Look how cute she looks with the cat eye. I’m afraid my line would be uneven because I would be trying to dodge all those pesky fine lines! :-)

This is on my list of things to purchase! This eyeliner gel gets great reviews!! I would purchase a brown color, not black.

7. The Smokey Eye- Oh boy I cannot pull this look off! I look like I’ve got dark circles for miles when I try this. But if you can do it, go for it!

8. Orangey Eye Shadow- I kind of like this look. If I add a touch of orangey eye shadow, I might could pull this off. Remember if you’re over 40, be careful about adding too much color to your eyes. Neutrals seem to work best for our age. Also don’t try to match your eye shadow to your outfit. Matchy Matchy is old lady (yikes, did I just say that?)

Alrighty, that’s the rest of the makeup trends. Of course, there are some I left out like glitter eyes and lines drawn in strange places but they’re way too out there.

What do you think about these looks? Can you pull off the smokey eye?

Some of you have emailed me about good brushes. This set has good reviews and is a pretty good price so I thought I’d share it with you. (click on the picture and it will take you to Sephora.)

8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends {Part 1}

Yay for Friday! It’s Day 4 of 31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips and I’m sharing 8 Fall 2013 Makeup Trends with you.

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips

Before we get started please watch this quick 16 second commercial. Have you seen it? Every time I watch it I laugh out loud!!

This commercial is making a very good point that we all need to remember. Just because it’s “trendy” doesn’t mean we have to wear it. I’m not saying you shouldn’t rock the smokey eye but let’s be careful that we don’t make ourselves look stupid! :-)

Okay, with that said here are 8 Fall 2013 makeup trends and some of my tips sprinkled in too.

1. Brows, brows, brows! In case you haven’t heard me say this before, thicker brows are in. So don’t over pluck! Fill them in so that they look natural, no lines! (A fuller brow gives you a more youthful appearance.)

I use Brun eyeshadow my Mac to fill in my brows.

2. The no makeup, makeup look. This look is all about finding the right base. Then add minimal color for a flawless look!

3. Lashes! Long lashes are “in”!  Hmmm, so how can we be on trend if we don’t have long lashes?

Two things: 1. Use a good mascara and 2. Add false eyelashes.

I love wearing false eyelashes. I don’t wear them everyday but when I do, I think my eyes stand out. This picture was taken this year on my birthday and I was wearing false eyelashes. They’re not over the top but just give my eyes a little boost. (I’m planning to do a tutorial on applying false eyelashes.)

I also use Benefit They’re Real! Mascara. It’s a best seller on Sephora’s website.

4. Plum or burgundy lips. Okay, I’m not a fan of this. But if you’re in to dark lipstick you’ll love this color. For women over 40, dark lipstick can be harsh. I try to play up my eyes and stick with a lighter lip color.

I’ve shared four of the 8 Fall 2103 Makeup Trends, stop back by tomorrow and I’ll share the rest of them with you. (Sorry I just dislike long posts! I like short and sweet.)

Which one of these fall 2013 makeup trends do you like? dislike? I love to hear from you!

Beauty For the Heart~~Chorus to the song, Were It Not For Grace by Larnelle Harris.

Were it not for grace, I can tell you where I’d be
Wandering down some pointless road to nowhere
With my salvation up to me and I know how that would go
The battles I would face forever running but losing the race
Were it not for grace
Forever running but losing this race
Were it not for grace

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9

Have a blessed day!

Nail Color Trends For Fall 2013

Welcome to Day 3 of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips! Today we’re going to talk nail color trends. A pretty manicure is always in style and just because sandal weather is leaving us doesn’t mean we don’t want our toes to look nice.

31 Days of Fall Fashion & Beauty Tips

Taegan Tanner from Elle magazine says, Nail art may be dying down, but the right color is everything this season. I have to admit I won’t be sad to see nail art dye down. I’m not a big fan.

Last year during my 31 days series we talked about nails for women over 40. Here are a couple of tips:

Dark polish can accentuate your aging hands. Dark polish shortens your fingers but a light color elongates them. If you want longer, younger looking hands go neutral. Here are some beautiful nail polish colors if you want to go neutral.

I like to save the fun colors for my toes. If you’re over 40, it’s best to avoid excessive glitter and nail art. (This makes you look like you’re trying too hard to look young!) Agree or disagree?

Here are some fun colors for fall 2013 to try!

What do you think about this year’s nail color trends? Do you wear dark nail polish or neutral colors? 

On a side note ModCloth asked if I would participate in their Uniquely You campaign by creating a lovely look with this mint green dress. I had to use items from their website to style the dress. They will be picking a winner from the bloggers who participated.

Here’s how I styled the dress~~Simple and Classic

Beauty For the Heart~~This was straight from my devotional book Jesus Calling this morning, “When many things seem to be going wrong, trust Me. When your life feels increasingly out of control, thank Me.”

But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation. Psalm 13:5. I’m trusting Him today!

Have a blessed day!

Alpha Hydroxy Acid For Mature Skin

Happy Wednesday! Usually I share photos of What I Wore but I realized yesterday, I had not taken one picture. I’m totally fine with not having my picture splashed all over the page today! :-)

But, I did want to tell you about a product I’ve recently tried. I know most of you are like me, you see those fine lines and wrinkles sneaking up and I’m always looking for a good product to help with my mature skin.

One of the things I’ve read is we need to use alpha hydroxy acid. Alpha hydroxy acid reduces wrinkles and the signs of aging, and improves the overall look and feel of the skin. ( Dr. Oz says this is a must for mature skin if any of you are Dr. Oz fans.)

Alpha Hydroxy Acid For Mature Skin

I’ve recently tried Peter Thomas Roth hydrating gel. It’s ideal for normal to dry, mature, sun-damaged, combination, oily and problem skin types.

Here is what the company claims about this product:

“Peter Thomas Roth hydrating gel supplies lost moisture, anti-oxidants and Glycolic Acid to aging and sun-damaged skin without greasiness or oil. Helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Helps clarify the skin and smooth out a rough texture.”

I usually wait and share about products, after I’ve tried them for a few months but I’ve quickly noticed my skin looking better in the morning after using this for just a week.

I use one pump before I go to bed all over my face and neck. If you have sensitive skin, you might need to use it every other night to get your skin use to the product.

I purchased this product at Sephora but if you want to purchase online, Amazon has it here.

Have you all tried any products from Peter Thomas Roth? What about alpha hydroxy acid?

Beauty For the Heart~~For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed, says the Lord, who has compassion on you. Isaiah 54:10

Have a blessed day!

How To Apply Eye Shadow To Deep Set Eyes

Hey friends! Well, I’m a little frustrated! I’m trying to do more videos but it’s sooooo hard. I watch a lot of videos and I’m not satisfied with mine yet.

The only way I know to get better is to keep doing them. So I know I’m going to look back on this and think, “that’s horrible!”  Actually I already do—-bad sign.

Anyway, some of you emailed me and asked if I would show you how I use the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette. So this is my feeble attempt.

How to apply eye shadow to deep set eyes

Because I have deep set eyes, it’s a How to apply eye shadow to deep set eyes video. Thanks for being patient with me!

(I fast forward a little bit of the video on purpose. It was getting too long for me.)

Did that help at all?? Should I stop while I’m ahead?? :-)

Here are the products I’m using. If you click on the product, it will take you to Amazon, if you’re interested in ordering.

Neocutis Lumiere Bio-restorative Eye Cream
