Summer makeup is not an easy subject for a 40+ mother of two boys living in a quiet Southern California town. Let’s face it, if we tone it down any more we would have to reverse make up … and I don’t even know what that means. But this is what I do know: if you like makeup (I adore it) and want to wear something without looking too done-up, there are a lot of products out there that you can be thankful for.
A great face can start with a great primer. Luminos Moisturizer by KEYS is amazing. This is 100% natural, and the scent will let you know it (it’s almost medical). It is fab for a complexion that needs more moisture for a little evening out. It really helps with redness, too. Next I like applying the ever-so-light Glo Minerals Sheer Tint Base. Then I add Glo Minerals Contour Kit in medium-dark. Finally I add some brows and mascara. Maybe a bright summery lip, and voila! I am ready to sweat in the park with my kids. Just add some eyeliner to go to dinner with the husband. Simple as that!

IT’S ALL ABOUT FALL! … even though we’re in July. Well, fall is coming faster than we think. What I love is that the looks of fall mirror the looks of summer, but with a little more of a punch. Peachy cheeks. Dark lips with wavy hair. Great cat-eyes and metallic shadows. These are on all of the runways and they can be ours for the fall.
My all time favorite trend is the cat-eye. It is such a classic. I am so thankful it hasn’t disappeared yet! There is nothing sexier than a perfect swipe of liner that plays up the lash line. Add a great pair of 23 Lashes or a little BLINC mascara to your lash extensions (the best invention ever) and let’s go. It’s never too much if it is tastefully done.
