Stop Faking It

The thing about beauty is it’s fleeting.  We start out as a cute baby (most of us anyway) and grow into a cute toddler, and then by the teenage years we are experimenting with beauty and colors and accessories.  Our 20s and 30s find us trying to stay in those decades because inevitably we find ourselves pushing 40….and by 50 we are wondering what happened.

Some of us accept what we are and look like, content in that fact that at our age who are we kidding.  We would need a lot more makeup to get back to looking like 20.  Or you can go the other way, surgery is always a option, although I am not one to go that way.  And so we find what we were doing for our skin in our 20s has a way of catching up to us.

But if you turn on the TV today, you will find all kinds of skin care products telling us they will get rid of those wrinkles, make your lips fuller, lashes longer and skin smoother.  But are you willing to send hundreds of dollars to do that?  I always believed that starting to take care of our skin in our 20s affords us the best possible skin later in our lives.

I have always wanted longer lashes.  The boys in my family have such long and full lashes….while us gals are piling on the mascara.  Or maybe putting on some fake eyelashes.  Or permanent eyelashes.

Well, no more – because I have found UNLIMITED LASHES… In just weeks your lashes look longer, fuller and healthier.  Avon’s unique serum, with a peptide blend and botanicals, is designed to dramatically enhance the look of your lashes….so you never have to FAKE it.

Dare to compare to prestige brands sold from $80 to $150…..you can get this serum for only $39.99 Plus get a FREE Eye Lift Pro with your purchase…..Check out my store at www.youravon.com/ashapiro

A brush here and there

How many makeup brushes do you own?  I am always amazed at the amount of brushes we need just to do our makeup.

Eyeshadow, eyeliner, foundation, powder, concealer, blush, and brow to name a few.  It makes sense not to use the same one for everything, and if your brushes are of good quality then it is not something you will have to change often.  Plus if you maintain them they can last a long time.

I have found these brushes to be the very best and at a reasonable price so even if you have to change them, it won’t cost an arm and a leg…do you need a brush change?

 

 

Do you match or mix?

I have a new habit.  I watch every woman I see to see if they have matching lipstick and nail polish on.  I for one, do not do that…wait, maybe I do…..I tend to go with pink nail polish and lately have been wearing a light pink lipstick, although some times I go a bit toward the beiges.

But since I take notice of these things, I am finding woman who use those mauve colors and wear it both on their lips and nails.  How about the darker lipsticks – those berry and wine colors…..and then you match it to your nail polish.  Actually I think it is a nice look, very elegant and put together.

Do you match your lipstick and nail polish???

Mom said “No Makeup”

When I was young I wasn’t allowed to wear lipstick much less any other makeup.  I guess way back then you were considered a “loose” girl if you did.  So as a good daughter I listened and didn’t wear anything.  But alas I changed parochial school for a public one and yes, many girls wore makeup….but of course I couldn’t tell if they were loose or not.  So I stuck by what Mom said.  And then I graduated high school.

Those days (oops dating myself) college was not only not necessary but it was something girls just didnt attend.  So off to work it was.  A city job as a secretary – Civil Service Job I think they called it then.  I loved working and meeting new people….and then met a girl who said “Why don’t you wear makeup”?  And then it started.  She introduced me to foundation, mascaraeyeliner and my favorite, lipstick.  Don’t leave home without it.

Recently I have been trying out a Lipstick Crayon which I really love.

Comes in creams or shimmer and right now there is a great sale going on….buy one get one for half off..Check it out today at my e-store…there are 12 shades to pick from…
