Did you know that you really should change your make-up with the seasons? It really does reflect on your appearance. Here’s a quick guide on doing your make-up all year round.

For eye shadow, bright, bold colours are IN. There are great pinks, deep purples and awesome blues, not to mention oranges, greens etc. to check out as well.  Play up your eyes with these new shades.

Spring
You aren’t still wearing the same old makeup colours that you wore last winter, are you? Spring is coming, and there are some great new colours.

There are great new mascaras that make eyelashes longer and thicker.   The look of false lashes can be obtained, creating that so popular look.   One end fortifies and lengthens the lashes, and the other end coats the lashes with lush colour.   And when they say that it makes your lashes longer… it definitely works that way for me.

I challenge you to test out DivaGlam’s foundations. They are definitely worth sharing.

To blush for this season, try a mixture of pink and peach for lighter complexions, peach and bronze for medium skin tones, and bronzer with golden tones for darker skin tones.   Two colours warm up complexions perfectly.  Try mixing the shades that you have and see how it works for you.

Summer
Full face make-up is not really necessary anymore (no matter what your age).  And in the summer, who wants full make-up on their face?   Use a tinted moisturizer rather than a regular foundation.  Also, foundation applied to your t-zone is acceptable and adding a sheer powder over the entire face after will do very nicely.  It will even out your skin tone and is so much lighter.

As far as fragrance goes, keep your summer fragrance light and fresh. A cologne or toilet water spray with some of the new aromatherapy scents is perfect. You can always go back to your regular or a heavier perfume at first frost. Overall, just think light, airy, sunny, and you can’t go wrong with less summer makeup.

Remember, “LESS IS MORE”, especially as you get older.  Take what you see in magazines and on tv and make it YOUR own. Those LOOKS are only guidelines for you to use.  If you remember this, always be a FASHION DIVA!!!

Your Natural Hair after sixty

Going natural isn’t always the easiest decision to make.

First, I encourage you to learn how to take care of your new head of super coily, silky curly short, water wavy and sometimes dry hair. Just realize it may be a substantial physical transition. Going natural can become your new challenge. But as it can be challenging, it is just as rewarding once you know your texture and how to use the right products for your particular hair type.

It would be a great time to reinvent yourself with a new year approaching. Remember, just because natural can mean chemical-free and to another with some chemical manipulation for ease of styling. It’s all good. You just do what makes sense to you and works for your lifestyle.

If you are looking to go natural here are some tips:

  • Get to know your texture and tailor your routine to this texture type.
  • Be patient; natural hair may take a longer time to style.
  • Use products that keep the hair hydrated, healthy, and manageable.
  • Wash and condition your hair in sections to cut down on tangles.
  • Use a sulfate free shampoo and a petrolatum/mineral oil free moisturizer to cut down on dryness.
  •  Be careful when using heating appliances.
  • Remember to protective style at night i.e slik head scarf or pillow case.

Follow these tips, and they can help alleviate some frustration when wearing your natural crown. Just keep working with it.

I have used a few products that I can recommend. Give some a try, and if you recommend, and let me know. Our hair can get thin, lose volume, and even change texture as we mature. Using a hair thinking serum on my scalp has helped tremendously. I use them along with the other products. Remember the 3 step system, which is Their 3 step system is to cleanse, Hydrate and define.

And also, remember what you fuel your body shows in our hair, skin and nails.
Please feel free to contact me regarding any products or have any questions.

Naturally yours,
