It’s Definitely Summer!

Ladies, summer is here and we want to keep looking good! We need a make-up with an spf of 20 if possible. I would advise using sunscreen moisturizer if possible. One of the ways I take care of my sunscreen issue is through a nutritional product by Dr. Mercola. I believe in all natural. His sight is a really good site to learn about vitamins and health through the natural way. He has a product that is called Astaxanthin. This product not only helps with the wrinkle issues but it also is a sunscreen you can take internally and not worry about applying sunscreen to your face. It is also a high powered antioxidant, which helps with inflammation in the body.

New/recent make-up news and techniques!

I want to try to keep you up to date with newest make-up tehchniques and the newest formulas of make-up. If some of my posts are over a year old that doesn’t mean they are not still good. But, I have make-overs at least 5 or 6 times a year in order to keep we that are older up to date with the latest techniques to keep looking as young as we can even in our more mature years.
I also have an ulterior motive as well. I want to be able to attract younger women as well and I have to keep up with the newest techniques and make-up as well as the applying techniques.
As I learn new things I will keep you posted!!

drying or laying flat, try upping your moisturizer. ** make- up lasts longer
if you have a good skin care routine before applying  foundations.
