Midweek Favorite Things - Fall & Winter Makeup


The World of Confidence

"Get your game face on!" 

There are no ugly women, just lazy ones." - 

Helena Rubinstein, Founder of Helena Rubinstein Incorporated

If you are like me, you love to wear makeup no matter what you are doing daily.   A dusting of eyeshadow, liner, foundation, eyebrow pencil, mascara and a strong lip always commands attention.  In the days of Zoom, MS Teams, the power effect from taking more time with your makeup is essential. After all, it is "lights, camera and action" for many these days when the cameras are on.  

Do you not want to appear confident, fresh and in control?   Yes, it is easy to abstain from applying makeup, in our current land, but are not you worth it to focus on your assets for YOU!  I guarantee you will feel better about yourself, self-confident and ready to take on any task. 

It is fascinating that those who stand out these days are the ones making the effort.  It is okay to be a woman and highlight attributes. Truly.  Look at every successful woman in the public eye.  Those succeeding in any venue or opportunity wear makeup.  If you are on the path of success, here are a few favorites for Fall and Winter 2020. 

Favorite Brands

Brows Say It All

"Your eyebrows introduce you before you speak." 

I have tried lots of different eyebrow brands.  I always end up coming back to Dior Diorshow Brow Styler. It is easy to use and creates the best brow.  Comes in six shades.  I like a darker brow and usually purchase either Universal Brown or Universal Dark Brown.

Play Up Eyes - Smokey Eye

"The eyes are the window to the soul."

A beautiful eye to wear with your fall color apparel.  Add a soft lip and presto.  You will look gorgeous. 

See Smooth Skin

"Glowing skin is always in." 

Smooth skin is achievable with the help of foundation.  A light coverage depending on your skin evens out any imperfection.   It is interesting how many women do not wear foundation.  Coverage protects the skin from pollutants and the sun if it contains SPF.  If not, be sure to add one to your regime.  Here is my favorite.  Lots of hues to choose from too. 

Most Important - Tools

"With a good makeup brush, everyone can be an artist."

The makeup tools you use are essential for a effortless finish on your face.  You do not want to overdue makeup and want to look as natural as possible.  Of course, sometimes at night you may where a bit more.  I have found that more mascara does enhance the eyes if you do not have false eyelashes.  Anyway, these are my favorite new application brushes.   Think I will buy a whole set and throw away all my random ones that I own.   Simplicity at your fingertips. 


"Makeup is a powerful way to effectively reveal something unique about your inner self."

There you have it.  Power, respect, and instant self-confidence with a splash of makeup.  You are on your way to success. 

Hope your week is going well!

"You are exceptional, a leader, a formidable woman who is making a difference daily in your life. Embrace the beauty within you.  You are worth it." 

Until Next Time,

Flexible is a Choice

Spice of Life What does it take to being flexible on the road of life especially when change is at an all time high? Well, for many the simple task of walking will transform the body and mind thus ingraining a "flexible mindset".    Of course, put your phone away or keep on silent.  Allow yourself to hear your own thoughts and unleash your creative side or solve issues.   During the last year and a half, I have been walking with my husband and friends.  We have discovered new places, trails, wildlife, foliage, and forged friendships.  We have been accepting, evolving and creating new elements in our lives.  Along the journey, we have all strengthened our bodies and fueled our minds with conversation while admiring nature and embracing connection.  We became flexible with what we were able to do on a daily basis.    Throughout the Covid 19 pandemic, we have had an opportunity to get off the hamster wheel and adjust our lives accordingly.  For some, the adjustment was hard, and

Mom Jeans - Oh NO

  Just Say It Isn't So! "I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity- all I hope for in my clothes." Yves Saint Laurent "Mom Jeans"   are making a powerful comeback in 2021.  I remember women wearing "Mom Jeans" in the day and am stunned that women are slipping down this road again.  The term "Mom Jeans" originated in the in the late 1980's and early 1990's. They were worn by mom's and considered unhip by the youth.  A friend of mine recently asked, "What exactly are Mom Jeans?"   Typically, "Mom Jeans" are higher waisted than the high waist style, often in a light denim wash, creating a longer and flatter hind end.  There is extra fabric throughout and can emphasize a pouch if you have one. The fit is snug at the waist, sometimes with a waist band with a loose and unfitted leg.  Think of pajama pants only with extra fabric at the top.  The next requirement is to
