Does Makeup Make a Difference?

Does makeup make a difference?  Look at the photo and you will say a resounding yes!

For years, this has been my makeup go-to thought…younger women wear makeup to look more sophisticated and older women wear makeup to look younger. 

At almost 69, I am in the older category, and I am decidedly younger looking in the second photo.

Here are my non-negotiables. I ALWAYS do my skincare routine. I don’t leave home without foundation, eyebrow pencil, concealer, and lip color.

 What must you have before you leave the house? A client once answered my question with, “my bra!”

I share that story with you because, one…it’s funny, and two…nanpatrickknows is not a platform to shame. This is the place you get to explore ideas and the possibility of expanding your visual options.

I put together a video where you can see that you can have a finished look with or without blush and eye makeup. 

Let’s to a session together. I will meet with you in person or via video.  All my skincare and makeup lessons are free. Click the pink button to schedule your time to explore.
