Recently, I decided to make the switch from Iphone to Samsung and it was all because of a watch - the Samsung Gear. I have a small addiction to technology and the Gear looked like it could solve some social media issues (the hubby hates when I look at my cell during dinner), not to mention help out in the health department, so why not give the little guy a try? Plus it looked oh so cool in VOGUE this summer.
I'm a firm believer that age is just a number and that's all it really is. I think real age is determined by how we feel inside. What does that mean in the world of makeup? It means we don't always have to follow the age appropriate makeup rules - it's okay to bend them!
So if you're 30+ and you feel like rocking some glitter, reach for a fun glitter liner. Feeling really sassy? Then do glitter from eyelid to crease! (Coordinate with matte and sheen shadows of course.) But draw the line at throwing glitter all over the entire lid/brow area. Unless it's for a costume party (that's a whole different story!) because otherwise it just looks like you're trying too hard ... or crazy and who wants that?!
If you wanna wear bright colors, make sure they look like they could be in the same color palette with each other. Pick one feature or a couple to deck out, just remember to do it the right way: blend! blend! blend! + make them compliment not compete! I've totally worn a bright eye AND a bright lip (image) by following my little guidelines mentioned above - and everyone loved it! Key things to remember: there is a time and place for everything!! Think about the event/place you are going to - if you can have a little fun with your look then go for it! Why not?!
Oh where has NEW YOU been all my 30's?!?!?
I just found this guy on the stands while flying back from Denver and it is one of the best reads I've picked up in a long time. It's kind of like SELF meets NEW BEAUTY (but less advertisey and scientific) meets W. All the articles totally spoke to me which made me read through it lightening fast! I really enjoyed the skincare articles and tidbits about health - very informational with a touch of science, but short & sweet (my cup of tea). The celeb articles were great too! The topics in this magazine captured my age group perfectly. Oh yea and don't get discouraged about the price ($9.99 US) because its put out quarterly, not monthly. I recommend it for readers 30 & up!
