That is a photograph of my mom the previous summer on a journey in Alaska. Mother is 84, 85 in December. Does she look it? No chance! You should see her very close – her skin is impeccable. She may have a couple “age lines” (Never call them wrinkles!) yet her skin is as (that’s right, here comes another banality) “delicate as a child’s behind!”
They state those with medium and more obscure appearances show their age the least. Lighter looking individuals will in general wrinkle and hang more, I assume, because of the dryness of their skin and hair. Thus, I’m told. I don’t have any logical exploration to back myself up. I DO have two or three models however.
Since I was received upon entering the world, I am told my introduction to the world guardians’ ethnic foundation is Portuguese. I need to trust them. I have a moderately dim composition, “olive” it’s called. My blue-looked at, light haired companions were generally so jealous that I didn’t need to sit and cook the entire day in the sun to get a tan. It coincidentally mattered of actuality, I liked to avoid the sun.
Growing up, my (supportive) mother was continually cackling about dealing with your skin. She said in the event that you continue getting tanned now, when you got more established, your skin would look like calfskin. (Cracked me out!)
She would consistently have the best skin items. Do you recall “Furchgott’s” retail establishment? She would make an exceptional outing into town to go to Furchgott’s and have the cosmetics woman suggest items. Presently, conceded this is “some time ago” (the mid 60s) when things weren’t exorbitantly prosperous. However she would return home with a goliath pack loaded with facial/skin items adding up to the twofold digits!
Also, she would play out her “everyday practice” strictly. Truly, she was a severe Catholic – yet one thing doesn’t have anything to do with the other. LOL
Presently, here I am – simply had my 49th birthday celebration and am freaking out about my up and coming 50th.
I’ve heard it said numerous multiple occasions “You don’t look that old – you resemble your in your late 30s or mid 40s.” Okay, thank you for the commendation, yet that is no large challenge, truly. I surmise I’ll simply need to act more youthful as well! (pfft – as though I don’t as of now!) I was an incredible “hot tamale” back in my 20s! Also, in the event that I knew, at that point what I know now…well, that is another story.
Thus, I thought I’d share my “day by day magnificence/cosmetics standard, custom, fixation – whatever the case might be – with you. What’s more, I need to find out about yours as well. I’ve been “pulling a Mildred” (acting like my mom) on my adolescent, Bree – continually pestering her about dealing with her skin and eating right. I need her to perceive how significant it is.
Thus, here’s mine:
Bird cleanser or chemical
Maybelline Medium to Dark Brown Eyebrow pencil (I lost my foreheads in 1976 and have been drawing them on consistently for as far back as 30-some-odd years – no, I don’t need inked eyebrows! Envision what you’d look like when you’re truly old and decrepit – with these dull eyebrows and some snow-white hair! Ew!)
Lotion/moisturizer (Oil of Olay, yet I lean toward plain ole Jergens – don’t ya love the way Jergens smells?)
Base: Cover Girl “Extreme Finish” (fluid powder cosmetics, #420 smooth common)
Cream concealer (yellow – shrouds sacks under eyes; light and dull beige for defects and shaping)
Powder – L’Oreal “Genuine Match” (bare beige/beige)
White eyeliner pencil (under temples, external lower corners of eyes)
Dk earthy colored or dark (delicate) eyeliner pencil – inward lower covers
Dk earthy colored eyebrow powder
Lip liner (typically dull mauve)
Redden (conceals from peach to coral)
