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.

  Lakes of Beauty Build an Oasis of Love Many are sighing with relief.  Now is the time to unite and heal the country.  Be open, be present and accept what comes. Would it not be wonderful to unite a fractured society where hate and anger were and still are at an all-time high.  Is it not time to start accepting one another, to listen to one another, and to support one another? Rather than throw stones at those with opposite thoughts or opinions.  It has been interesting and sad to witness such vitriol, destruction, and chaos this past year and hence.  Perchance rhetoric going forward will be filled with kindness for their fellow man.  One can only pray for sunshine to fill souls.  Thus, we begin again.  For now, notice the beauty around us.   The fall and winter to come are filled with peaceful moments when walking on your favorite trail.  Beauty surrounds us if we look.  The leaves, the wildlife, the rain, the lakes, the peace the small moments. Or maybe in your daily activities, you

Baby It's Cold Outside "Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience." Ralph Waldo Emerson The damp, dreary, wet and snow filled days are upon us for the upcoming months.   The change in the air is palpable along with early darkness falling across the land.   2020 has indeed been the craziest year for everyone with the horror of Covid, lockdowns and a roller coaster election.   After a nail-biting, hair-pulling, stress filled election this week with no clear resolution, it is best to remain steady and calm.   Life is indeed a wild ride with ups and downs, twists and turns.  You would not want your life to be dull, would you?  This year, more than any other year, in my lifetime, 2020 is one of complete societal pandemonium.  If someone had told me on New Year's Eve, that everyone's life in 2020 would be completely turned upside down, we would have looked at them and thought they were off their rocker.  Or maybe had imbibed a little too much.  Of course, it was

  The Bridge Thanksgiving is this week.  Celebrations might be different this year with a smaller group, yet spreading goodwill remains constant.   Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, pie and all the fixings will be set out on the table with a simple reminder.  We are thankful to live in this country.  We are thankful for our family and friends.  We are thankful for our existence.  We are thankful for our homes.   There is so much to be thankful in 2020.  Yes, there is.  Is it a tumultuous year?  Yes, absolutely one of extreme lifestyle change, tragedy for many and a shift for all to think about what is important in your own life.   What is important to you?  Is it being connected? Is it nature? Is it helping others or sharing yourself when needed?   I think this year is one of growth, challenge, perseverance, acceptance, and change.  We are crossing a bridge this season.  A bridge of hope.  A bridge of renewal.  How can we prepare to embrace this new bridge of hope?  The First Step - C
