Lookbook ~ Birthday Makeup I Turned 56 today!

I turned 56 today and this was my makeup that I wore out to dinner tonight with my family.  Every birthday I like to play in makeup and take lot of photos just to see how I have aged from the year before.  I had my eyelids done as you know so I look drastically younger than I did last year.

Fitness ~ Day 15 of my 30 Day Sugar Detox Program

Day 15 of my 30 Day Sugar Detox Program

Writing this post comes with pleasure and pain especially since today is my 56th birthday.  I'm currently on a 30 Day Sugar Detox program and i'm happy to say that i'm half way through.  It's been hard, i'm not going to lie. It's hard to really know how much sugar we're consuming on a daily basis because sugar is in everything.... I mean everything!

Swatches ~ Nars Rikugien and Cruella Satin Lip Pencils

This was the birthday gift that I picked up from Sephora, of course I had to make another purchase so I thought I would try some of the Sephora foundation I've heard so much about.  Anywho here are the swatches.

Lookbook ~ Featuring Lancome Dual Finish Foundation Powders

Fun FIerce Fabulous Beauty Over 50

In spite of the hot weather her in Los Angeles where I live, I manage to wear makeup today because I had a function to go to.
Face:  Lancome Dual Finish Powder Foundation in 420 Bisque and 540 Suede.  I try and create an bronzer effect by using the lighter shade in the areas where the sun hits and the darker shade around the perimeter of my face to warm it up a bit.

Eyes:  Mac Texture & Brown Script Eyeshadows, Mac Local Wares Fluidline, Iman Nutmeg Eyeshadow

Swatches ~ Kat Von D Bauhaus Liquid Lipstick

Kat Von D Bauhaus Liquid Lipstick

This is my first ever Kat Von D purchase.  I've been eyeing her liquid lipsticks ever since they hit the market. These aren't cheap, $24 and I must say they are well worth it.  The formula is very moisturizing, not like some of the cheaper ones on the market such as Colorpop and LA Splash.  I haven't tried Anastasia's liquid lipsticks which are $20 but I do want to buy at least one for comparison.

Beauty ~ Beautiful Bronzers for Ebony Complexions

Beautiful Bronzers for Ebony Complexions

With summer upon us, I thought I would share my top picks for ebony complexions.  With the vast range of brown skin tones, not every product works for us so we have to be very careful not to waste our hard earned dollars on products that are hit or miss.
