Makeup Application

Let’s talk MAKEUP today!!!!!! Are you one that likes to experiment with makeup, or do you have your standard look every day??? I definitely like my standard, but LOVE to experiment way too much!!!!!!!!!!

One of my favorite looks outside of what I normally do, is the very dark eye with a nude lip! I’ve blogged about this before, but I thought worth going back to, simply because I get a lot of requests from women over 40-50 years of age. Just the other day I pulled out some purplish eyeshadow that I had only used a few times and it was such fun! I wore it here. I probably broke all of the rules by wearing a colorful lip with it, but I loved how it all looked together! Obviously I wouldn’t wear this every day!

I start out every day with a clean fresh MOISTURIZED face with this primer and this foundation. This one is THE BEST I’ve ever used! My color is 30 Beige. It’s silky smooth on my face, and has the perfect coverage…not to heavy and not too light!

CHANEL makes some of the best eyeshadows EVER! Their quad packs are fabulous, especially to travel with! For this look here I used this one. It’s called Tisse Essential!!! I used the darkest color on my lid and liner. Then I switch back and forth between the 2nd and 3rd shades in blending the edge of the darker 1st shade. And then of course the lightest shade I used for my brow bone. I ALWAYS use this to enhance my eyebrows, color BLONDE, and this gel to set them in place. I use the TRANSPARENT color. My blush I mostly use is this. Color is ORGASM. My favorite part about making myself up, is always lipstick and gloss. You know if I was a stranded person on a desert island, and could only take one thing, it would be my lipgloss!!! These are my favorites!!!


Lip1- Lady Danger  |  Lip2- MAC Red  |  Lip3- Candy Yum Yum  |  Lip4- Saint Germaine

Gloss 1- Funtabulous |  Gloss 2- Candy Yum Yum Gloss  |   Gloss 3- Saint Germaine


NEUTRALS…Lip Pencil- Boldly Bare  |  Lipstick- Viva Glam II  |  Lipgloss-  C-Thru

That’s it! It probably takes me 10 minutes to do my makeup. Lots of women my age will contour and all that stuff, and honestly I’m just not THAT PATIENT! That is way too much work! I usually don’t touch up my makeup either, unless I’m going to something important that evening. It’s pretty good to stay put! Using an eyeshadow base is key to get your eye makeup to last! This shade is PAINTERLY. Don’t skip this step!

Please let me know if you have any questions. I THINK I covered everything! I’ll go over my STANDARD makeup look in another post. My norm is simple eyes and BOLD lips!

  1. Do you have a ” go to ” mascara that you love? It seems the older I get , the shorter my lashes become! Gail

  2. I absolutely could use a master class on make up… choices, application, the what , when and where’s. I used to wear make up decades ago. I was always complimented on mine and was frequently asked to apply it on my girlfriends. Then “life” happened and I know what worked then, necessarily won’t work now. lol

    1. Cheryl…I think it takes practice for sure! If you want to start wearing again, start small and simple. Like maybe blush and lipgloss. Or foundation and gloss. And, I would suggest going to a department store for some one on one help!!! XO

  3. I would love to see a dematration of you doing your makeup and seeing the products of which you are talking about …

    1. Hi Deborah…..trying to find time to start some YouTube stuff! I do have a channel, and so that’s a start!!! But thank you….that will be one of my first projects!!! XO My channel is chicover50

  4. I’d give anything to b able to wear makeup but bc of sever arthritis my hands don’t allow me to apply it. I love how ur not afraid to wear whatever u want to and u look beautiful doing it. I hope to learn a lot by seeing what u put together. Right now I’m basically a plain Jane but I’ll get there. Ty sharon
