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.

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.

b’HUE-tifullly yours,


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.

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!!!



I am sitting on my balcony, restoring my soul to my right, a small table. There sits a tree, fern, and a vase with dried flowers on the table. The table has a beautiful glass top and is made of white wicker. Along each side of the table is two lovely chairs that match. It is a perfect spot to relax and restore. On the table is my cup of ginger and honey. I brew and have these most mornings excellent for the stomach.

The most beautiful thing about this is the great peace I feel sitting here. Above me are two hanging feeders, one for the birds and the other for the hummingbirds. I can hear the birds chirping. Below me, I can see the neighbours walking their dogs. Next door, they have cats, and they are outside most of the time. They like to nuzzle underneath my car for shelter.

There is something special about this morning. I had a visit from a frog. I can see where it is, but I hear it croaking makes me smile inside. The thing that brings joy is that I immediately thought there was no pond or water here, but there he was, big as life, announcing his presence to the surrounding world. I LOVED it.

I sometimes feel like that frog, coming out as big as I can be even though it does not seem like I should be there. How about you? Have you ever had a plan no one understood or a desire for something others thought was out of your reach? Sitting there that morning, just that frog and me, I got the message I believe God was saying to me, MeShel just leap.
