BEAUTY / SKIN / FASHION

Enjoying what i love when it comes to being my authentic self! It’s always good to be the person you are on social media

I’m not famous but I know my shit when it comes to beauty/ skin/ fashion! Transitioning to gray hair has made me not care about beauty standards and I have definitely set my own!
I love makeup and sharing on platforms for the older women! Let’s face it Botox isn’t gonna make you look younger at 70! It’s best to be yourself and accept the facts that getting older is FABULOUS ! Having a good skincare recipe for your skin & makeup placement is so important!

Makeup is magic! it can make you or break you! Makeup placement is so important when your 40s, 50’s, 60’s and so on! YOU GET MORE CRINKLES. Let’s face it! Your face changes so your makeup has too also! Accepting yourself as you are is the best gift!

MAKEUP 101

EMBRACING THE LOVE OF MAKEUP WITH EACH CHAPTER OF AGE IN YOUR LIFE!! REM TO CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT MAKEUP 💄

MAKEUP IS MAGIC!! But before the makeup the skin has to be on point! PREP THE SKIN! This is when you use a primer/beauty oil to hydrate the skin!

It don’t matter if you love a sheer, light, med or full coverage foundations! Get products that have spf, anti-aging, hydrating products that allows your makeup routine to be less complicated!

Let’s face it, We age!! So does the same foundation you have been using for 10+ yrs! Your probably not realizing your makeup is bringing you down! Not in a good way!! CHANGE YOUR FOUNDATION!!
USE COLOR CORRECTORS! You will use less concealers!! I promise you!
Color correctors are your BFF because they allow you to correct problem areas:
YELLOW-freckles, light sun spots
PURPLE: brightening
ORANGE:dark under eye circles, hyperpigmentation
GREEN-redness
You can find products that have all of these in one!

Concealers will make you or break you! You need a little bit not half the tube! We have wrinkles so where you think the extra amount you supposedly needed is gonna go?!? In your wrinkles! AKA BUILD UP!! Apply a small amount under your cheekbone!

EYESHADOWS•BRONZERS
BLUSH•HIGHLIGHTER
EYELINERS•LASHES
PRACTICE!!
YOU CAN USE THEM DONT BE AFRAID OF IT!! IT DONT MATTER IF THE PRODUCTS ARE CREAM OR POWDER!! USE THEM BUT DONT CONTOUR IF YOUR 40 AND UP!! Contour is for suckas don’t play yourself!! It brings you down like saggy skin! ADDING COLOR TO YOUR FACE SHOULD BE YOUR GOAL! Use a bronzer sculpting cream for areas you love to shape your face! DONT OVER DO IT! We don’t want you to catfish anyone! HAHAHA!! YOU CAN USE ANY COLOR AND REM TO ADD A GREAT LIPSTICK!

Face mists will be good for your skin between steps when applying your makeup! They basically infused your powder products to melt in the skin like cream products do!! Setting sprays are also good to set the makeup when you are all done!! Make sure if your oily to get one for oil control!
SPF sprays are good to reapply!! Use them!! So important to protect the skin!!

THE ONLY POWDER YOU SHOULD USE IS A FINISHING POWDER! IT BLURRS •SMOOTHS AND ADDS BRIGHTENING & RADIANCE TO THE AREAS YOU APPLY IT! Which should be where your pores are at, wrinkles, & where your skin needs to be brightened!

REM TO PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE & REAPPLY YOUR SPF!! HAVE FUN 🤩 AND ENJOY YOUR MAKEUP ME TIME!!
