L-Bri's "Divinity" is a go-to neutral for me. It's a direct-sales company, so you have to search a consultant to purchase through, but the lipsticks are very emollient-rich and fairly priced. Not long lasting with all the moisturizers, but at that price I can afford to reapply.

I like the nude shades with a hint of color. Maybelline is my fave and I have tried all but the darker shades. Don't have the names.

I saw on AGT that Heidi Klum had a Maybelline lipstick, when a magician was on and got something from each of the judges. I recognized it immediately!

What lipsticks work for you? Brand and color please. I am trying to find more lipsticks that aren't so garish or dark. It is hard to find as the companies cater to the young.

Bold terracotta look: Sephora Lipstories #30. Economy value!

Soft, more muted look, rosey mauve: Buxom Full Force "Influencer."

If the mind mends, the body will follow.

Gluten free is working for me!

I like that tip, Nancy!

I have gone back to Oil of Okay serum daily, with Coola spf when I go outside. At night, it is a simple oil of okay moisturizer. All the brands and concoctions I was trying actually ended up burning my sensitive face. Plus, I broke out in little bumps all over my face!

Simple, consistent care is best for me.

I use Nars concealer for my face, just in the spots I need it. For my eyes, I get lots of compliments on using the stick eye shadow (from clinque or other brands) in one overall color. Then I line the outer part of my lid with a deep purple or bronzy brown color. My eyes are a little close together so I just line the outer part. Chanel eye mascara is the only brand I found that doesn't irritate my eyes. I went without mascara my whole life until a month ago when I got a free sample of Chanel.

And CeraVe is not all that expensive!

I've noticed that if I used liquid makeup and a good-quality powder (Mary Kay), my makeup never settles into lines. And as you noted, powder foundation tends to do well with my skin, although it does tend to wear off quicker.

My big makeup tip is to use a light dusting of contour powder in cheek hollows and under the jawline to sharpen it- It helps with definition I am losing as I age.

You will read online about how powdered makeup "settles" in the lines on your face. Maybe they are talking about simple face powder because I am here to tell you that the mineral makeup (which might be considered a powder) DOES NOT! I have a few lines and use Bare Minerals and it does not go into my creases. What I have seen on other women is that a greasy liquid makeup WILL show in your creases.

A revelation: I got CeraVe one day with a coupon. I had never tried it before. I got the serum and the regular moisturizer that contains a SPF. A month later some lines on my face are less noticeable and my skin texture looks better. I mean really! This is the best kept secret around! I also have purchased the night cream and the body lotion. Love the CeraVe!
