Color by numbers

I am not a “color” expert.  I cannot highlight, strobe, or otherwise enhance my cheekbones.  I can barely manage a small wing on my eyeliner.  But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to try.  And it certainly doesn’t mean I want to look like a hot mess until I master these things.  I was at a show last weekend and I did the ole look-behind-me cliche when a lady said my makeup looked beautiful.  I literally thought someone must be standing behind me because she couldn’t be talking to me.  She laughed and said, “you, honey, I am talking to you.  Your eyes are just perfect.”  I could feel blood rushing to my face and I had a total awkward moment because I have a hard time accepting compliments.

I went on to finally say thank you, and its the work of my quad.  She then looked at me crazy so I had to explain the sorcery known to many as True Color Quad.

The beauty of the Quad is it is like painting by numbers for kids!  Anyone can pretend to understand how to match shades and apply eye shadow with these magical little squares of color!

You simply turn the quad over and follow the instructions!!!  OMG!!  How simple?  This is glorious, just glorious.  I recently did branch out a smidge and started using actual brushes for my application instead of the wand that comes with the quad.  But, I only use the crease brush and eye shadow brush.  That took some getting used to, but I definitely can tell the difference of the brushes versus the wand.  I still use the wand for the brow bone, baby steps…


So, with some simple instructions and just a few minutes I have a decent look that appears like I at least put in an effort!  Be sure to check out all the different shades we have here!  At $5.99 you can get all of your favs and not feel guilty!

Sunny days

Well, we had a pretty wet and cloudy start to the summer!  But, even though we have had a good bit of rain showers and thunderstorms we have had a decent amount of sunny days!  I know I send the kids outside anytime I see a break in the clouds because it’s hard to say how long it will last!  I try to get some vitamin D as well and like most moms I am all about the Bug Guard and SPF!  I also use a day cream with SPF and during the summer months I switch to a day lotion with SPF 50, the Skinvincible, for my face to stay moisturized, keep my foundation looking good, and keep the bad rays away!


I also must use shades outside because my eyes are super sensitive to light, the curse of the light blue eyes!  But even with my sunglasses, I tend to squint when I am outside.  I also have been laughing a lot this summer!  It’s been so much fun with the kids and friends and my biz that I have been gut-laughing a lot!  But with all this sun-squinting and laughter, I have to be mindful of that delicate skin around my eyes and the dreaded crows feet!

But Anew to the rescue!  One of the staples in my regimen is the Clinical Eye Lift Pro Dual Eye System!  This is part of our clinical line but specially formulated for the skin around your eyes.  But better than just an eye cream, this one packs a one-two punch!

There is a cream for under the eye, around the top of the cheek bone, and next to the eye area to keep the lines at bay and fight any existing ones.  But there is also a super special gel that you apply to the top of the lid and brow bone.  This gel keeps that area lifted and tight giving super definition to the upper eye and brow!  I also learned a trick from a very successful and ageless rep that if you keep this product in the fridge, it is very refreshing after a long, hot day! It will have all the normal benefits, but also has a fabulous cooling effect on those tired eyes when it’s cold!  So do yourself a favor and check into adding this little gem to your skincare routine to tackle those stubborn areas around the eye instead of trying not to smile or go outside!  Click here to grab it or click here to take the skincare quiz to find the best products for you!  Happy summer!
