Favorite Fall Makeup Picks 2016

Part of my big change is how I get ready every day.  I would wake up and slap on some foundation, mascara, and lip gloss before I left the house.  Today, I’m getting back into the beauty of being me.  That means, actually spending time on making myself look the part.  When I was younger, I would have the latest fashions and on-trend makeup.  Makeup and clothing were a form of self-expression to me and that is how Gianna felt about her hair.   I was once all caught up in what people would think or do, but after this life-altering transformation of myself, I decided, it was time to head the store for some new makeup!


Favorite Fall Makeup for 2016

I felt bombarded with different makeup choices!  Two aisles of makeup, nail polish and tools was enough to send me into a panic attack.  Once I calmed myself down, I started to pick up products that I was instinctively drawn to.  I tossed handfuls of lipsticks, eye shadows, eye liners, blush and mascaras into my cart. I narrowed down my selection by matching the to the skin tone on my face.

It was such an exhilarating experience that I couldn’t wait to give my makeup picks a try!  I can’t lie, I did have help from my daughter in picking them out.  It wasn’t that I doubted my abilities to shop for makeup, I just liked the validation that I still got it going on!

The New Me!

It was time to fancy myself up and test out the makeup!  I gathered my new product and headed to my daughter’s room where the lighting is on point!   To begin with, I resorted to my regular, go-to cover up and foundation.  Next, I added the shadow to my eyelids, making sure to follow the instructions on which color went where.  I was pleasantly pleased with the way my look was starting to shape up.  Then, I lined my lower lash line with the Perfect Point plum liner and finished off the look with a couple coats of mascara.  Once I was satisfied with the outcome, I moved on to my cheeks.

Do you know where your cheekbones are?  I had to dig around to try and find mine!  Once I secured their location, I lightly brushed on the Clean Classic blush. I gave myself a slight dusting of finishing powder just to eliminate some of the natural shine.  Moving on to my lips I added the 8HR Pro Gloss first, then I sparingly added the Colorlicious lip shine on top.  I looked at myself in the mirror and fell in love.  My daughter curled my hair and I felt so pretty.  Who was that woman staring back at me?

I loved this photo so much that I have made it my avatar and side-bar blog image.  It’s probably one of the best photos I have had taken in a very, very long time.  I am back everyone, Phyllis is BACK!

  1. I have started playing more with makeup lately. I’d gotten into the habit of not really wearing any and it’s fun to use that to express creativity. I bought a really crazy purple lipstick and I’m in love with it!
