Guava is the color of my jacket and small evening bag. Black provides a neutral background for this date night look.
Lipstick must match a red(ish) top exactly. “Girls’ Night – Classic Red” hit the mark. (Lipstick here) One of the subjects you asked for repeatedly last week was skincare tips and routines. Skincare has taken priority over makeup as I have aged. I am currently using a regime that includes Overnight Resurfacing Peel here. The Rejuvenating Regimen has all the appropriate products (day and night) for my now dry, mature skin. I also use Countersun Mineral Sunscreen here. Cleansing Balm is my favorite way to take off the makeup and pollutants from the day.
In addition to lip color, I am wearing a gray brow pencil, a bit of taupe eye shadow, charcoal eyeliner at the base of the top lashes only (smudged and softened with charcoal eye shadow.) There is a bit of rose blush on the cheeks and black mascara. That’s it for makeup.
I can never overemphasize the importance of food choices in any skincare routine. Without essential healthy fats and omega oils, our skin will quickly lose elasticity. Mr. Mickey had salmon (above) I had the Tarragon Chicken thighs below with help from Mr. Mickey. I rarely finish all the food served. I drink more than eight glasses of filtered water daily.
Another request that came very often last week was one for exercise routines. I go for brisk walks as often as possible, climb steps many times each day and park far away from the buildings I visit. I avoid sitting for long periods, but I do not go to a gym or follow a set routine.
