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 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 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.

There are a lot of things that change after turning 40. One of the things that surprised me was my eyelashes became thinner, shorter and lighter.
Most days I use mascara and an eyelash curler to add shape, length and volume. But sometimes if I’m going somewhere special I enhance my eyelashes a little more with false eyelashes.
False eyelashes have come a long way! They look more natural than ever and are easy to apply!
Here’s how to apply false eyelashes so they look as natural as possible.
You’ll need false eyelashes (duh), a Q-tip (or a toothpick), tweezers, and glue. I use the Ardell brand and I’ve used several different ones. Today I’m using the #105 Glamour length. If you want something a little less subtle try #110 or the demi whispies.
First I put my eyeliner on my eyes and one coat of mascara to my natural eyelashes. Then I remove the false eyelashes with a tweezer. Be careful not to pull any lashes out.
Next I put a drop of glue on a piece of paper. You only need a small amount, I always squirt too much out!
I use a Q-tip to apply the glue to the lash line on the false lashes. I always try to add extra to the ends. I want to make sure they don’t come loose.
After you have placed the glue on the false eyelashes, let the glue dry for about 30 seconds (it’s best not to blow on them.) Then carefully apply on the lid as close to the roots of your natural lash line as possible.
I apply them from the outer corner of my eye inward, pressing lightly. The white glue dries clear, so don’t freak out if you see glue, it will disappear.
Once the false eyelashes are applied, let them dry for a couple minutes and then add mascara to blend them in with your real ones.
This is a picture I took a several months ago without false eyelashes.

Good Monday Morning!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I know a lot of you went Black Friday shopping but I decided to decorate my house for Christmas, so I didn’t go this year.
I did purchase one thing on Black Friday and I did it online. Of course it wasn’t a Christmas gift, it was for me so I’m not sure that counts.
So passionate about it, that she’s created her own line of makeup!
Cara created a IIID foundation. It has the contouring foundation and the highlighter concealer all in one compact. I can’t wait to try it!
She also has a cream blush (cream blush is great for women over 40!) and an illuminator.
If you’re interested in purchasing any of this, you can go here. I will be sharing more about the makeup when I try it. I’ll definitely let you know how it looks.
So that’s my one Black Friday purchase. I’m hoping to order some Christmas gifts online today for Cyber Monday!
There are some great deals!
