Hello there and happy Sunday!
Did you listen to your mom when she said to stay out of the sun!? Put that sunscreen on!? Don’t go into a tanning bed (hello 80’s baby) I want to say I did every time but………😬
Now that I am in my 40’s I like to say I am handling age with grace, wrinkle cream & extra sunscreen! 😂 Besides that I am also using products that work for my mature skin and helps keep me looking fresh and with a natural glow. Less make up is always better in my opinion. 😉 Plus not sure I have enough time to do much more.
Today’s blog post is filled with my go to products I love. Some days I use less and some days I use more but these products have been favorites for a long time. If you missed my recent video of these products, click here to watch.

I always use these products before I start my make up routine. This day time serum is a must. I wish I knew about it 10 years ago. It’s helps with discoloration and evens skin tone. Also make sure you are using a good sunscreen everyday! I really like this one. I also like that Amazon carries the sunscreen in their professional beauty line – so you know you are getting what you pay for.
TARTE Tinted Moisturizer– this soft, lightweight moisturizer goes on so smooth. It’s a light layer that I sometimes wear alone for light days. I wear the color 25N.
Anastasia Eyebrow Gel – I have very light eyebrows compared to my dark hair, so I have tried several pencils, gels etc to get the right look. I also have had a hard time finding one that does smear through out the day. Believe me I’ve had lots of smears and basically had a third eyebrow for most of the day!😂 This gel was recommended to me and I love it. A little goes a long way and applying with a brush like this is best. You can add to existing hairs and shape your brow as light or as bold as you want. I use the color medium brown.
TARTE Concealer – I am always on the hunt for a good concealer. I’ve used shape tape for awhile now and really like the coverage. I have dark circles under my eyes, so I need something with a heavier coverage. This concealer you only need a few light dabs. A little goes a long way, so don’t use too much. I also am ordering their new flex concealer to try out! If you have trouble with creasing I’ve heard this one was good for that.
NARS Blush – color Orgasm // I discovered this pretty color last year and have kept it in my routine for the past year. It lays really well and stays on throughout the day. This pretty pink adds just the right amount of color.
TARTE Eyeshadow Pallet – This color pallet has been around for awhile and I have loved it for years. So many great colors in one pallet. You can use the lighter shades for highlighting and the darker shades for that evening bold look.
MAC Foundation Powder – if you aren’t wanting a liquid foundation, I really have liked this matte finish powder. It goes on smooth and isn’t thick at all. I use the shade
Mascara primer – I shared this recently and have quickly become a fan. I put this on before my mascara and you will notice a difference in the length and fullness of your eye lashes.
TARTE mascara – I haven’t found an affordable mascara that beats this Tarte one! It goes on smooth and helps to lengthen and give your lashes that perfect natural but elevated look.
What are some of your favorite make up finds? I love trying new products!
