It’s a busy time of the year! We’re getting ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas and most of us will be getting together with our friends and families.
Although we have lots to do, we still want to feel and look good. So here are 5 Quick Tips to Look Your Best!
1. Add some bangs-Have you ever seen a before and after makeover on someone over 40? They almost always add bangs whether it’s side swept or straight across, bangs soften your face.
While you’re at it, you might want to stay clear from a center part. A side part softens your look.
2. Fill in your eyebrows. As we age, we begin to lose our eyebrows. But eyebrows are important and help frame our face. So, it’s important to fill them in. I use an eyeshadow by Mac called Brun to fill in my eyebrows. Do NOT draw a line. We want them to look as natural as possible.
3. Lighten your lipstick and add some gloss. Another thing that will take years off of you is to lighten your lipstick. Dark lipsticks age us, period. I know dark lipsticks can be “in style.” But for the over 40 crowd, dark lipsticks are not good. Lip gloss is a youthful look.
4. Use a makeup primer-A lot of women skip this step in their makeup routine, but a foundation primer preps the skin prior to foundation application and facilitates blending and extended wear.
The Cover /Fx anti-aging primer has added benefits. This reparative primer hydrates and smoothes skin to blur the appearance of fine lines and pores.
5. Color those grays-I know not everyone wants to color their hair but coloring those grays does help us look younger.
These are just 5 quick tips to help you look your best as you go to those family get togethers and holiday parties. Hope they help!
What are you doing to look your best during the holiday season?
Beauty For the Heart~~My Mom had written this in one of her Bibles I was recently reading from.
“I love the Bible the way I love my eyes—not because my eyes are lovely but because without them I can’t see what’s lovely. Without the Bible I could not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ.” How true!
Have a blessed day!
