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.

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!

March Birchbox

Hey friends I wanted to share my March Birchbox with you today. As most of you know I’m flying to San Francisco today. I’m actually up in the air right now.

It won’t hurt my feelings if you want to say a quick prayer for our safety! :-)

March-birchbox

Birchbox is a monthly subscription. They are redefining the retail process by offering consumers a unique and personalized way to discover, learn about, and shop the best beauty, grooming, and lifestyle products on the market.

Each month I receive samples or sometimes full size products of beauty products. Here’s what I received this month.

Gilchrist & Soames Body Lotion-has a light earthly scent and makes my skin feel super soft.

Grand Central Beauty Skin Perfecting Serum + Primer- hydrates skin while providing a silky-smooth base for makeup. (Plus a treat from Ghirardelli, yum!)

chocolate and balm

Dr. Hauschka regenerating eye cream & regenerating neck and décolleté cream. I can’t wait to try this, although there’s probably not enough to show a real difference.

skin care

Lastly,  INIKA eyeliner in green lagoon. This is a full size product, although I probably won’t use it because it’s green. I’ll definitely give it to someone younger.

All in all, it was a pretty good box. I love to learn about new products, so it’s fun for me!

Beauty for the Heart~~This was the verse I read this morning before traveling.

“This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For theLord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Spring Makeup Trends

***Okay friends, I’ve switched my email service and you should now be getting my emails through another server. I know this doesn’t mean a lot to you but it’s been something I’ve needed to do. 

I’ll be tweaking it a little over the next few weeks. I’m trying to truncate my posts in my email which means you have to click over to my blog to read it.

Here’s why: I get paid per clicks through my ad networks, which means it helps me for you to click over to my blog. But I want your honest opinion. Does this bother you??

Thanks for you patience and for being such faithful readers!! You’re such a blessing to me!

The last few weeks we’ve been talking about the spring trends in fashion, handbags, and shoes. Today, I thought we’d talk about spring makeup trends.

Spring-makeup-trends

I thought I would go today and get a spring makeover. I usually try to do one in the fall and spring. So before I go, I checked out the spring trends.

Makeup artists love to experiment with the latest trends but the latest trends don’t work for everyone. I already know that bold lipstick is not for me so I don’t even want to try it.

Here are some of the latest trends with makeup.

1. Major Brows- Thicker brows are still the way to go. I love the look of thicker brows so I hope this doesn’t go away any time soon.

2. Winged liner- I love this look but I’m not sure I can pull it off. I do love the way it lifts your eye which is great for women over 40.

3. Pastel eyeshadow- I’m not sure about this one either. I know blue and green is popular right now but I don’t think I can pull it off. I’ll probably stick to my neutrals.

4. Bold lipstick- This is gorgeous on her, but it’s not for me.

Have you tried any of these spring makeup trends? Which one is your favorite?

Here are some of my other spring trend posts:

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

3 Beauty Products for Women Over 40

Today I wanted to share 3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40, I’m using and why I like them. All of these products, I received as samples in my Birchbox over the last year. I tried them, loved them, and then ordered them. (Of course you don’t have to be over 40 to use them but they are good for our age.)

These are old news, but I still love my beauty blender. I have an expensive foundation brush, but I always go back to my beauty blender.

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

It blends your foundation into your skin in a perfect amount giving you a flawless finish. For maturing skin this is important!

You wet and wring the egg shaped applicator out (I didn’t do this when I used it the first time and then I read the directions) then use a small stippling motion to apply your foundation.

This product I received in my January Birchbox. I have used other brands of dry shampoo and didn’t like them. I tried Klorane and loved it.

3 Beauty Products For Women Over 40

I use a lot of product in my hair so I usually wash it everyday. But with this dry shampoo, I can skip days.

  • It cleans hair without water in 2 minutes.
  • Extends life between shampoos.
  • Ideal for on-the-go
  • Adds volume and texture
  • Received Allure’s Best of Beauty Award

I was told last year to use Benefit’s POREfessional under my eyes to help fill in wrinkles. I tried it and I loved the way it felt on my skin.

I recently realized you can use this as an all over primer for your face before applying makeup. I have to admit, I’m a little addicted to this stuff.

It feels amazing on my skin. I use it as an eye and face primer. The silky, oil-free formula diffuses pores and fine lines for an “airbrushed” finish.

Okay, so these are some products I’m using right now and loving!

I’m looking ahead to March and working on some posts. Is there anything you would like for me to write about? I love to hear from you!

Beauty For the Heart~~I’ve shared with you all recently that I’m studying Experiencing God by Henry Blackaby. It’s such a great study.

This week I’ve been reminded that God loves us deeply and profoundly. He loves us and has given us guidelines for living so we will not miss the full dimensions of the love relationship.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome.” 1 John 5:3

Have a blessed day!

My Everyday Makeup Routine

My Everyday Makeup Routine

I always get emails about makeup, what are you using, what’s your favorite brand, etc. I have to admit, I love change when it comes to makeup.

When I was younger I would stick to a certain brand like Clinique or Bobbi Brown and use all of their products. As I’ve gotten older I’ve realized I can mix and match and use my favorite products from different brands.

Here is my everyday makeup routine right now.

I’m a huge fan of primers. Primers prep the skin prior to foundation and eyeshadow application. I use Cover Fx anti-aging face primer and Cover Fx anti-aging eye primer. I love that they both have anti-aging ingredients in them!

Next, I use Cover Fx natural finish oil free foundation ( I use the color P 50). It’s a water based liquid foundation that provides hydrating, flexible sheer-to-full coverage for the face.

I use Cover Fx matte setting powder to set my foundation and minimize shine.

For concealers, I start with Benefit’s lemon aid corrector. I use it on my lid and under my eye to cover up my dark circles. I follow that with NARS radiant creamy concealer. I use the color custard.

For my eyebrows, I will use different brown eyeshadows to fill them in. I’ve talked about the importance of filling in your eyebrows. You don’t want to draw a line. Right now I’m using Mac eyeshadow to fill in my eyebrows. The color is Brun.

Now for my eyes, I play with different eye shadows and right now I’m using the Urban Decay Naked Palette. It has a variety of neutral shades.

For my eyeliner I use Urban Decay 24/7 glide-on eye pencil. The color I use is demolition. I play with a lot of different mascaras and right now I’m using L’Oreal Double Extend.

For a hint of color on my cheeks I’m using Cover Fx Golden Peach bronzer. This gives me a hint of color without over doing it. They aren’t selling this anymore so when I’m out, I’ll have to find something different.

Lips, I try different lip colors all the time. I like a hint of gloss so right now I’m using L’Oreal Colour Riche LeGloss Lip Gloss, Nude Touch.

My Everyday Makeup Routine

I’ve been trying to save money and do my own nails. The nail polish I’m loving right now is Essie Nail Color – Mochachino 781. It has a hint of sparkle and it’s a great winter color.

Well, there you go! That’s what I’m using right now. Have you tried any of these products? Do you like to try different brands or do you stick with one?

Beauty For the Heart~~“The longer we live in him, the greater he becomes in us. It’s not that he changes but that we do; we see more of him. We see dimensions, aspects, and characteristics we never saw before, increasing and astonishing increments of his purity, power, and uniqueness.” ~ Max Lucado

Have a blessed day!
