How to Make Your Lipstick Colors Look Spectacular

Trying to find the right color lipsticks isn’t easy, even if you try them on in the store before getting home.  The lighting is different, and it can be disappointing to discover that you don’t love the color like you thought you did.  Age doesn’t matter.  It still happens unless you can just buy your favorite over and over without the company ever discontinuing it and just give up trying new colors!  The temptation is that there are new ones every season.  😉  Well, you can take things into your own hands and mix your own colors!

How to Spoil Yourself and Not Regret It Later

You don’t have to spend a lot of money on clothes; you don’t have to eat a gallon of ice cream, or even a luscious frozen custard cone or banana split; you don’t have to spend a day and empty your wallet at a spa…

Do you want to give yourself a lift for one reason or another?  Age doesn’t matter.  A new tube of the perfect red lipstick is a cheap thrill that will brighten up any woman.

And it doesn’t get old.  Lipstick is the longest-lasting cosmetic that you don’t have to throw out after two or three years.  It’s a classic that goes with anything and dresses up anything and adds a pop of color to neutral outfits.

How to Spring Clean Your Beauty Products


In regards to your true self, age doesn’t matter.  You are who you are, your spirit is ageless, you can have lifelong health and make the most of what you have.  You just have to use it or you lose it!

Link Love: How to Pack a Streamlined Makeup Bag

My simple little cosmetics bag from Target

For girls on the go, age doesn’t matter when it comes to the need for a streamlined little makeup bag to keep everything at your fingertips. The article from The Zoe Report, “How to Pack a Streamlined Makeup Bag,” caught my eye awhile back and I didn’t actually try out the advice until the other day.  I can always use more ways to organize everything and anything in my life.  It keeps me sane.

I’ve been toting around with me an ever-growing and overflowing makeup bag (or two – one in the car and one in my handbag).  Lately, I just chucked all that into a basket and tried to grab what I needed on my way out the door…which meant I didn’t always end up with what I needed and had to do without.

I just re-sorted my one little makeup bag according to the instructions in this report, and voila!  It all fits perfectly and I have whatever I might need.  Genius!  And my bag is half the size of the one in the video, too!  🙂

Here is the link:

Enjoy!  And please let me know how this works for you.  🙂
