Sunless Tanning

As most of you know I use sunless tanning products instead of baking in the sun for hours to get a good tan. A few weeks ago I posted about my favorite self tanner which is Sun Labs.

I also shared about TanWise dark bronzing sunless mousse, and how I felt it gave me a “dirty” tan look. It was too dark for me.

One of my readers shared that she used it but added lotion and that made the tan look better. I had one of those “duh” moments. Why didn’t I think of that?

So I mixed the TanWise with some body lotion and it works perfectly! I love the way it feels and looks. I used TimeWise in this picture.

You can purchase TanWise dark bronzing sunless mousse at Sally Beauty Supply for $12.99 or you can order in online here.

Have you tried TimeWise? What are you using right now?

Beauty For the Heart~~2 Timothy 1:7 has been a verse I’ve read for many years. It reminds me of the power I have with Christ.

For God did not give us a spirit of timidity (of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear), but [He has given us a spirit] of power and of love and of calm and well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.

Have a blessed day!

Makeup For Women Over 40

It’s seems when there’s a change of seasons, I like to change my makeup a little. I’ve been using Cover Fx foundation and I like it, but when I ran out of it, I decided to try something different for summer.

I love Bobbi Brown makeup (I recently had a makeover by a Bobbi Brown makeup artist) so I decided to get the Skin Foundation SPF 15. This foundation offers invisible, weightless coverage that looks like skin, not makeup.

I also love the Sheer Finish Pressed Powder. I like that it’s sheer but helps set my foundation. As we age, we need to avoid overdoing the powder. If your face has too much powder on it, you’ll instantly look 10 years older. Yikes!

Lastly, I use a bronzing powder which gives my skin the look of a natural tan. I don’t get a lot of sun on my face but I like to look like I have some color.

Have you tried Bobbi Brown foundation? Have you tried any of her products?

Beauty For the Heart~~In this world we live in, it’s easy to get distraught but Psalm 16:8 says, I keep my eyes always on the LORD. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”

Let’s keep our focus on HIM!

Have a blessed day!

Maskcara IIID Foundation Review

Happy Memorial Day! I hope your day consists of some outdoor summer fun! But I hope you also take time to reflect on the sacrifices that have been made for us by our military.

I’m so thankful for the men and women who have fought and died for our freedoms. They are heroes!

This is one of those long overdue posts. Several months ago, I purchased the IIID foundation from Maskcara. Many of you asked for my opinion.

Maskcara IIID Foundation Review

The IIID foundation comes with the contouring foundation and highlighting concealer duo.

Maskcara IIID Foundation Review

I put off reviewing it, because when I ordered the foundation, I ordered the medium shade and it’s too light for my complexion. Most people need the medium shade but my olive skin needs the dark.

So….I was going to order the dark but Cara is making changes to the foundation. She’s adding more colors and changing the consistency.

It should be out in a few months, so I’m going to wait and try the new line.

For me, the foundation was too light so it’s hard for me to say if I like it, or I don’t like it. I loved the feel of the foundation.

I also love the concealer and use it now to highlight with but it doesn’t cover my dark circles enough to use under my eyes.

Here are some things I will say, Cara is one of the sweetest bloggers out there and I love following her. She’s also one of the best makeup artists I’ve ever seen.

She knows what she’s doing! The IIID foundation is not for everyone but I have no doubt it’s a great product.

When the new product is tweaked and is ready for purchase I’m going to give it another try. Hopefully, I can get the right shade and show you how it looks.

I’ve recently switched my foundation and I’ll share with you what I’m using tomorrow!

Have any of you tried the IIID foundation? What were your thoughts?

6 Eyeshadow Tips For Women Over 40

Since we talked about eyeliner on Tuesday, I thought it would be a good idea to share some eyeshadow tips today.

6 eyeshadow tips for women over 40

Here’s the best advice I can give you when it comes to eyeshadow–stick with the “less is more” beauty rule. Too much eyeshadow will age you.

Here are 6 eyeshadow tips for women over 40:
  • DON’T match your eyeshadow to your outfit. A definite no no.
  • DO wear soft color eyeshadows like browns, pinks and neutrals in soft pretty shades. Often times a slight hint of color is all your eyes need to really pop.
  • DON’T paint three distinct colors on your lid with the last one being a pearly white shadow on your brow bone. This is an outdated look.
  • DO sweep a neutral shade across the eyes by day. If you like a little more color, apply a darker shade to the crease to add definition. You really don’t need more than 2 colors on your lids.
  • DON’T use shiny eyeshadows or shadows with glitter. These will only accentuate any wrinkles you have around your eyes.

Remember we are trying to keep our face looking soft and natural.

Most women our age look good in some shade of brown. If you’re eyes are green–brown with a khaki undertone. Blue eyes–a sand or taupe eyeshadow. Brown eyes–a light charcoal brown works well.

Do you wear eyeshadow? What’s your favorite eyeshadow? Color? Brand?

Beauty For the Heart~~I’ve started a new Bible study called Glorious Grace from the book of Ephesians. Where would we be without grace?

But God loves us deeply. He is full of mercy. So he gave us new life because of what Christ has done. He gave us life even when we were dead in sin. God’s grace has saved you. Ephesians 2:4-5 (NIRV)

Have a grace filled day!

6 Eyeliner Tips For Women Over 40

Eyeliner gets a little tricky as we age. I think we need it but how much do we need? And what color?

6 Eyeliner Tips For Women Over 40

Here are some eyeliner tips for women over 40:

  • Don’t skip eyeliner altogether—it’s a great way to make your eyes look more open and pop.
  • Choose brown or gray over black eyeliner. Black can be harsh and we are trying to soften our look.
  • Start at the outer corner of the eye and draw inward.
  • Keep the eyeliner thin and as close to your lash line as possible.
  • Line the lower lash line if you want to, but don’t rim the inside of your lower lash line.

Remember we want to define the eyes with softness and blending, not strict lines.

A thick liner (on the upper or lower lash line) can actually accentuate the areas that we don’t want to accentuate. It can make us look older.

Right now I’m using Almay eyeliner in black/brown. It definitely looks more brown than black.

What eyeliner are you using? Do you have any other tips?

Beauty For the Heart~~I love this prayer…..Dear God, I’m trusting you. I know you heard my prayer, your time, not mine. Amen.

He hears ladies, let’s just trust in His timing!

Have a blessed day!

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

A few weeks ago I shared with you about my spring makeover using Bobbi Brown makeup. After winter, I’m always ready for some makeup changes.

I was also running low on my concealer so I decided to give Bobbi Brown concealer a try.

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

I’ve had a makeover using this makeup before but it’s been several years. I had forgotten how much I love it!

As I was having the makeover the young lady wrote down all the makeup she used so when I go back, I can pick up some more of the makeup I liked. I didn’t have the money to purchase everything!

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

I decided to stick with the items I needed except for the brightening finishing powder. I’ve never used the brightening finishing powder before but I liked it so much, I decided to purchase it. Here’s what I bought:

spring makeover

  • Creamy Concealer Kit-Concealer instantly covers and brightens dark circles. Fuss-free pressed powder sets concealer for long-lasting wear.
  • Brightening Finishing Powder-A brightening pick-me-up for skin – this all-over powder instantly illuminates and gives skin a healthy-looking glow.
  • Corrector-A wakeup call for tired eyes. Neutralizes under-eye darkness and is designed to be used before creamy concealer.
  • Blush-Glides on smooth and is long lasting. I’m using the color “Blushed”.
  • Ink Eyeliner-With an improved formula and felt tip, this easy to use pen-style liner delivers the blackest black, perfect-every-time, line.

I have tried every concealer and corrector out there (well maybe not all of them, but I have tried a lot of them!) and I have to say Bobbi Brown corrector and concealer are some of the best I’ve ever tried.

The corrector helps cover up my dark circles and the concealer brightens my under eye area. I set it with the pressed powder and it lasts all day. I’m hooked!

I didn’t get a picture the day of my makeover, but I’ve been using it, and I like it.

Spring Makeover by Bobbi Brown

Have you ever had a makeover with Bobbi Brown makeup? Or have you had one with another brand of makeup? 

Beauty For the Heart~~Preparing our hearts for Easter:

Six days before Passover, Jesus entered Bethany where Lazarus, so recently raised from the dead, was living. Lazarus and his sisters invited Jesus to dinner at their home. Martha served. Lazarus was one of those sitting at the table with them. Mary came in with a jar of very expensive aromatic oils, anointed and massaged Jesus’ feet, and then wiped them with her hair. The fragrance of the oils filled the house.

Judas Iscariot, one of his disciples, even then getting ready to betray him, said, “Why wasn’t this oil sold and the money given to the poor? It would have easily brought three hundred silver pieces.” He said this not because he cared two cents about the poor but because he was a thief. He was in charge of their common funds, but also embezzled them.

Jesus said, “Let her alone. She’s anticipating and honoring the day of my burial. You always have the poor with you. You don’t always have me.” John 12:1-8 (MSG)

Have a blessed day!
