I don't have much of a "beauty" regime but thought
I'd share a few of my favourite things ...
I need all the help I can get at this age 😎
For many years (starting in my late teens) I used a wonderful
facial cleanser from a company called Allouette.
The product had aloe vera in it and I loved it.
However, over time (quite a long time and into my 30s) I developed
an allergy to aloe vera.
My eye lids would swell up and get chaffed and it took a while to
realize that the aloe vera was the problem.
To this day I need to be careful not to buy certain products and shampoos
that contain aloe.
After experimenting with some expensive hypoallergenic skin care
products I discovered this locally made skin care line
and have been loving it ever since.
It's made with totally natural ingredients and can be purchased retail,
not through a consultant at a home party!
|Also comes in small travel size containers - bonus!|
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to any sort of regime (especially at bedtime),
but I use these products almost every day.
My make-up is bare minimum and hasn't changed much since high school - eek!
I rarely ever (probably no more than 5 times in my life) use overall base make up,
but I do like to give my eyes and cheeks a little help!
Marcelle eye shadow quad, Covergirl eye enhancers, Loreal mascara,
and Loreal felt tip liquid eye liner are my go to.
For the cheeks - a quick dab of Marcelle Cream Blush does the trick.
My lips need some help too and for that I make my own lip balm.
I posted about it here.
When I want to be a little "fancier" I like to use a dab or two
of lipstick as well.
This process takes me literally only about 3-5 minutes a day!
That's about it for this old gal.
Some time I should bite the bullet and have a make-up consultation at a
beauty shop and see if I could change my old habits for some new ideas?
Perhaps they've developed an "airbrush look" technique by now!
Have you ever had your make-up done professionally and how did you like it?
My next "beauty" hurtle will be to make a decision about my hair.
To Dye or Not To Dye - That is the Question??
Till next time..... trying to keep it real.
