It is make up that looks like you only better!
Too much make up makes me feel like a clown!
I've never gone in for the thick pancake and pressed powders...
I want to use products that imbue a subtle, healthy result.
I've noticed that aging has changed my skin tone and elasticity so I need to use a lighter touch with all cosmetics and choose shades that flatter softly without screaming or drawing too much attention.
I also found that eye shadows can settle into the creases, that powder mineral based formulas seem to stay set and look fresh much longer.
Here is what I have in my make up bag:
I can "do my face" once it is cleansed and moisturized in under 10 minutes between sips of my morning tea.
I highly recommend having good lighting and a magnification mirror.
As a woman whose eyesight is rather dodgy without her specs I would be messing things up something dreadful if I cannot "see" what I am doing!
Bronzer and Blush
The foundation and bronzer are applied with brushes.
The cheek lip tint duo are done with clean fingers.
Eye pots are Mac and Pur
I always curl my lashes and mascara is a staple because my lashes are so fair that they virtually disappear.
On days when I am going out of the house, not just for my walk, I will use some liner and shadow.
Lining the upper eye only and using a very thin line.
Lavender Mourite, the eye pot on the right is great by itself for daytime.
For evening I'll add some of the darker Haux above the Lavender for a bit of a smokey eye effect.
Bobbi Brown Fresh Melon
Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters in Sugar Plum and Pink Truffle
for evening I wear a Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Red Velvet.

Enjoy your day and remember that Kindness Matters!
As an after thought....
My darling daughter gave me the most gorgeous vintage handbag!
I will share it with you just as soon as I can.
The NZ meat pies were a huge success on Sunday evening.
I ate a piece and they tasted seriously delicious...lip smacking good.
