I asked one of the mum's from my sons' school to model for me this week so I could do a makeup for women over 40. Susie kindly said yes and I am very grateful to her. I want to use real women for my tutorials as well as models to show you that with the right colors and technique, we can all look great - at any age. As we all know , our makeup has to change as we get older but it doesn't mean that we can't keep it contemporary , and that we can't use colour outside our normal palette.... We just have to use it in the right way and remember to pick one thing to be a feature - either eyes OR lips.
I found out the name of the lighter Laura Mercier foundation for you too since my sticker was missing, as well as the brown eye pencil I used. Oh and still perfecting the techniques of shooting and editing too , but getting better!

I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
