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,

  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

Midweek Favorite Things - Pom Pom Hats

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
