Odds and Ends

Odds and Ends 8.7.20

Odds and Ends 8.7.20

1. This could be the funniest thing I’ve read since the pandemic started.

2. This principal wins all the awards.

3. For those of you who fell in love with Votary via Boxwalla, this month’s box is for you! I have seen such good results with the Votary products and they are incredible for sensitive skin.

4. Did you all see Black is King?

5. This makes me so sad in regards to Dr. Fauci.

6. Westman Atelier continues to blow me away. Here are my two new faves.

7. I feel you, Michelle Obama. I feel you.

8. 1 death every 80 seconds. Wow, that’s a really grim statistic.

11. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview access for cardmembers is here!

The Best Highlight Technique for Mature Skin

The Best Highlighters for Mature Skin

Adding a little bit of highlight to the face can make such a difference, but if you are over 40, you might run into some issues with most traditional shimmery highlighters. What seems to happen as we age and develop fine lines and wrinkles is that our beloved highlighters (even our holy grail ones from our 30s!) now creep into said fine lines. Not cool, man. Not cool at all.

You know what I’m talking about, ladies. Tiny little glitter particles settle themselves right into those lines, which does what? ACCENTUATES THEM. Downright unfair, if you ask me.

Well, I’ve searched the clean beauty sphere up and down for the best highlighters for ladies of a certain age and I’m here to share them all with you, as well as give you my tried-and-true application technique!
