I’ve mentioned before that I am not a make-up girl. I still rarely wear it and I have to say that at 43 years old I’m still okay leaving my house and not feeling like I could possibly scare small children.
If fact tonight we were watching Desperate Housewives(okay I was watching it and the girls were finishing up their homework before bed but evidently they were paying more attention to my show than their homework. But remember, I’m the mom who lets their 9 year old read The Hunger Games..anyway..) Eloise said to me “Gosh Mom, she sure looks like you!” And I said “You mean Teri Hatcher!?!” And Eloise said “Yes, she looks a lot like you except you have freckles and few more wrinkles.”
And then I made Eloise go to bed. After I thanked her for the kind of nice compliment.
So when BlogHer asked me…
“What are your favorite tips and tricks for framing and showing off your beautiful face?“
I wondered if I could say ‘low lighting’ and ‘hanging out with children who don’t notice your flaws.’
But assumed I needed a better answer and with everything in life I believe in keeping it simple.
-A simple and nice haircut and style that compliments your face shape
-Simple accessories that show your beautiful face and not take-away from it. Simple and classic earrings and necklaces
-A flattering neckline with your clothing
-Colors that flatter you
-Keep your make-up simple to show your features and smile and not hide them
I took a picture of me right out of the shower and a picture of me with my usual minimal make-up and typical daily outfit and accessories.
I know I don’t look as young as I once was and have reached the point where I know I probably can’t even pass for being in my 30’s and really I’m okay with that. I love my age and I love the skin I have for my age and I feel healthy and honestly happy that I can still go without make-up and still wear a confident smile on my face.
Are you comfortable without make-up and how do you best show-off and frame your beautiful face?
