Over 40 Makeup-Lipstick

Over 40 Makeup

I told you on Tuesday that I wanted to be a little more organized in my home life but also on my blog. So, I thought I’d dedicate Thursdays to makeup. Things like makeup tips, makeup I’m using, and makeup I like. Of course I’ll be gearing it towards women over 40.

Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite neutral lipsticks with you. It’s Bobbi Brown’s “Brown” lipstick. It’s a medium pink brown and I pair it with Mac’s “Pretty Plush” lip gloss.

Women over 40 should stick to neutral lipsticks which soften our face. I know all those trendy red, and hot pinks look fun but they will actually make you look older.

When choosing a neutral lip color, Bobbi Brown says, “never choose one that is lighter than your lips, because that will make you look washed-out”.

Bobbi Brown’s “brown” lipstick looks good on almost all women and is a great color to wear everyday.

I’m wearing the “Brown” lip color in this picture.

Do you have a great neutral lipstick that you wear? Please share it with us!

Beauty For the Heart~~One of the things that I believe makes a women beautiful are the words that come from her mouth. Maybe I’m old-fashioned but curse words and slander are not becoming in my opinion.

Ephesians 4:29 (NLT) says, Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.

Let’s be careful with our words and be an encouragement today! Have a blessed day!

Radiant Cosmetics Giveaway!

Good morning!

Today I want to share with you a makeup company called, Radiant Cosmetics.

Radiant cosmetics was founded by Nicole Marrett.

She has a beautiful testimony that you can read here.

Nicole was given a dream; to run a makeup company that partners with human trafficking

organizations financially as well as getting people involved in their own communities physically.

The cosmetics industry generates $170 billion annually.

Women dominate this industry and of the over 2 million human beings trafficked each year,

80% are women and girls.

Nicole’s dream is to set the captives free, one lipstick at a time. Isn’t that amazing!?

You can follow Radiant Cosmetics on Facebook here!


Human trafficking is modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and

exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, human trafficking involves

the commercial exchange and exploitations of humans including forced prostitution,

various forms of “labor or services,” or servitude and debt bondage.

Human trafficking is considered to be one of the fastest

growing criminal industries in the world,

second only to drug dealing, which it’s expected to surpass in the next two years.

The United Nations estimates that 27 million people are trafficked annually.

I’m so excited to share this makeup with you and I know you’re going to love it!

My Top 5 Make-up Essentials

Good morning! Thank you all for your sweet comments about my crazy pop of color in my hair.

I’m getting a little more use to it and I may or may not keep it for very long. It’s still up in the air!

My sister has asked me to not do anything until she sees it in person. I think she wants a good laugh.

Today I wanted to share with you 5 makeup essentials that will help you on those days when you’re in a hurry.

I think most women look better with a little bit of make-up. I know I do!

Some days we don’t have time to bother with a lot of make-up but these 5 essentials will get you out the door and looking fabulous.

  • Lipstick or lip gloss~if you wear nothing else, apply this. It brightens your face and will give you immediate color.
  • Mascara~gives your eyes a lift.
  • Cheek color~gives you a beautiful glow.
  • Concealer~I always wear concealer under my eyes. I would sleep with it on if I could. It overs blemishes and dark circles quick and easy.
  • Powder~if you don’t have time to apply foundation, brush some powder on to even your skin tone and reduce the shine.
This will take you less than 5 minutes and you’ll look and feel better!


What about you, do you wear make-up everyday? Is there one product you can’t leave the house without?


Beauty For the Heart~This morning I’m babysitting Colt Allen while Courtney goes to MOPS. I cherish these moments and I wish I could freeze time. I want to soak up his every move, the way he smiles and slobbers~~it’s adorable! I can hardly believe how quickly time passes so I’m savoring these precious moments.

Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him. Psalm 127:3

Have a blessed day friends and know you are loved by the Great I AM!

Lipstick That Lasts All Day!

Good Morning and Happy Cyber Monday! I feel the sudden urge to order something online just to say I was a part of the big day. It’s estimated that over $1 billion dollars will be spent on Cyber Monday. Are you kidding me??

That. is. un. be. lievable!

Well, I don’t have any great cyber deals to tell you about today but I do have some amazing lipstick to share with you. I don’t know about you but I look better with a touch of color on my lips. The only problem is I don’t like having to reapply it every hour just to get the look I want.

Revlon has a liquid lipstick that stays on ALL day. Now that’s my kind of lipstick!

The Revlon Ultimate Lipstick is:

  • Food-proof lipcolor with a built-in, ultra-conditioning topcoat
  • One-step application- No topcoat required for comfortable wear
  • Stays comfortable and wears beautifully
  • Does not feather or fade; no touch-ups required, even after meals

I have wore all day lipsticks before but they dried my lips out so bad that I couldn’t wear them. Because this one has a conditioning topcoat it keeps my lips moisturized. I also put lip balm on my lips at night before I go to bed especially at this time of year.

Tip: The color I like is Iconic Iris but I noticed it looked a little too pink for this season so I added a plum lip liner. I bought Maybelline Color Sensation Lip Liner.

So if you need to change the color of your lipstick try adding a lighter or darker shade of  lip liner. It works great!

What’s your favorite lipstick? Let us know!


Beauty For the Heart: With the holidays in full swing it’s easy to think we need to buy and buy and buy and buy. But truthfully most of us have more than we need. I love this reminder from Matthew 6: 19-21, “Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be”. Today store up treasures in heaven by spending time in God’s word. Believe me that will be better than any Cyber Monday deal you can find!
