I think that 40 is actually pretty awesome.
I really feel like I’ve never been better.
(Maybe I’m a little bit heavier, have a few more lines, but I feel the same as I did when I was 25 and now (thankfully) I’m in a place in my life where I am able to indulge my passion for makeup and beauty products.)
but I don’t want to look like a 25-year old !!
(well, maybe my boobs and butt)
I DO want to embrace my positives, though, and look the very best that I can.
I am not an expert in any of these areas, though.
I am just a hopefully knowledgable consumer.
I feel super lucky to have good skin, (I’ve never had acne, just very occasional break-outs),
but I have horrific allergies and they are getting worse the older that I get.
to share with you my trials, finds, and misses with beauty products and makeup
(and sadly how they all relate with allergies and 40-year old skin).
I do not plan on not blogging about decor and recipes, but I hope to add a few more things that I
(and hopefully you) will find relevant for the 40-something year old woman.
I did not have any clumps, even with repeated applications;
and the brush is really nice making it easy to apply giving me long, full lashes.Here’s how it works on me–
(sorry I look a little bit cross-eyed in the pic)
My eyelashes are blond and basically don’t show up at all.
(I usually don’t wear bottom mascara unless I’m going out.)
This innovative lash enhancer may look like an ordinary mascara, but the similarities end there. The high-tech gel formula combines a flattering black pigment with a nourishing cocktail of ingredients to prime, condition, darken, and lengthen your lashes. It goes on smoothly and won’t clump or smudge, so you don’t have to worry about your eye makeup wandering all over the place. Plus, the non-allergenic formula is made without sulfates, parabens, or artificial fragrances.
How it Works
The creamy black gel is made with a natural rice wax base and contains a cocktail of lash-boosting ingredients. Marine plant glycogen helps lashes appear longer, while hyaluronic acid and panthenol have moisture-boosting abilities for a lusher, fuller fringe. Each tube comes with a multi-coiled brush that helps you lift and define each and every lash, including the tiny ones at the corners of your eyes.
