Makeup

Although it is not a problem to mix your make-up brands, I don’t.

When I became a MK beauty consultant thirty plus years ago, I thought I would miss shopping the cosmetic counters in the big department stores.  I was pleasantly surprised by Mary Kay’s unending supply of limited edition products. My make-up itch was more than satisfied. In addition, MK is excellent at updating their product line.

I am not the “keep it simple sweetie” kind of woman. I want all of the options, and I have it with Mary Kay. 

And…I get it wholesale.  If I wasn’t the type to want my own business, I find MK’s prices to be on the low side of the luxury market. My makeup up section is filled with “how-to’s” and easy tips.

As you age, you can get stuck in old routines that no longer serve you. You are not alone, I am with you every step of the way.

My skincare and makeup sessions will keep you fresh, up to date, and feeling fabulous.

Makeup Colors…What works for You?

When it comes to makeup colors, some want it all, others? Not so much. Before I became a fan of “Color Me Beautiful”, I thought one could wear any color as long it was enhanced by the right makeup colors. To a degree, I still concur. For instance, if you love olive...

When brown is NOT your color

When brown is NOT your color

Brown is not an intrinsically good color on me. I like it though. What’s the solution? Wear makeup with works on your face and blends with the color you are wearing…in this case, brown. Take a look at this video to give you a quick look using brown and pink.

Dark circles and sunspots are incredibly annoying

The skin under our eyes is one eighth the thickness of our facial skin, hence the dark circles.  And…your sunspots? They took years to develop, they also take years to get rid of them. If you have them removed, be prepared to have them return if you are one to enjoy...
