Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Take Six - Makeup

 


Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder




"Give women the right lipstick and she can conquer the world." 


Do you love makeup?  I do.  I always have enjoyed wearing red lipstick, bit of eye shadow, liner, mascara, and foundation to even out my skin tone.  Makeup gives me simple pleasure.  By the way, it is known fact that buying lipstick and wearing it will brighten your day.   Additionally, I even wear makeup (liner, lipstick with mask, and mascara) when I am off to tennis or working out.  Playing up your eyes is essential because the mask hides your face.  I do wear lipstick, so that when I am in my car, the mask comes off and there you have added color to your lips.  Why not?  This is our time!  

Lights, Camera & Makeup 






In our current world of online video, a spot of makeup is a must for live productions and film.  Of course, it is essential to have proper lighting and appropriate apparel to appear polished, confident and in charge.  Anyone who is ever in front of a camera, knows that makeup hides and highlights what you want others to see.  Think of movies, television, people in powerful place who all combine these three elements. You decide what works best for you. 

Recently, at a distanced get together, the question came up on which makeup to purchase?  With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, there are a few options in sets to splurge on.

7 Ways to Become a Butterfly

Don't Crush the Butterfly!


"Despite everything, no one can dictate who you are to other people." - Prince




Butterfly's come in all shapes and sizes painted in dazzling and colorful hues.  The beauty and varied differences of the butterfly are astounding and beloved by the beholder.  There are approximately 20,000 species throughout the world dancing in the sun and air.   Yet, what does a butterfly mean to fashionistas? Well, for one all the people of the land can evolve into creative and wondrous butterflies.   It is through the journey of life that sometimes the environment, family, friends and peers willingly crush the beauty and charming essence of you  - the exotic butterfly.






Don't Destroy the Wings of Flight
There will always be the vengeful, the user, the hateful or a person filled with jealousy and envy that clips the wings of the butterfly.  Their insecurities reign supreme and a beautiful butterfly ready to spread its wings can sometimes be stunned with …

Audrey Hepburn - Women Who Inspire

Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)Kindness


"Pick the day. Enjoy it- to the hilt.  The day as it comes. People as they come... The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present - and I don't want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future." 



"To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow." The ShiftIn our current upside-down apple pie world, many are struggling with the overload of information on the virus or election. The airwaves, print, social media, or any form of communication is constantly swirling at a high voltage.  The never-ending fables, unrest, destruction, statistics, changes our way of life and follows the path of what I call - The Shift.  A shift that we have no control over but can deal with as gracefully as possible. The Shift where everything we did for pleasure, work or play is on temporary hold or gone forever.  These shifts have happened throughout history.  Be patient. Be kind. It will pass and resolve. The chaos for some may lead to anger, …

Monday's Favorite Things

What I Love This Week - Perfume - Scents, seductive, fresh and oh so beautiful



Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum (Life is Beautiful) is lovely and unforgettable.  Have you ever worn a perfume that receives lots of comments?  I personally love this scent.  And, yes others do comment.  
The name of the perfume constantly reminds me that life is indeed beautiful.  Life is a gift.  It is to be cherished and and should be enjoyed.  Don't let Negative Nelly'sAngry Annie's or Righteous Rita's ruin your day. Avoid those that do not lift your spirits or make you smile.  Seek out laughter with others either online or in-person. 
Spritz on your favorite perfume.  Put on something pretty and start the day with the knowledge that your life choices and decisions matter.  You are special.   
Lancome's Le Vie est Belle Eau De Parfum  has floral notes of sambac, jasmine and Tunisian orange blossom. This perfume is for the woman who lives in the present and loves her life. …
