Hello and Welcome! I'm so glad you're here.
Have you ever struggled with getting a smooth, poreless, natural look from your makeup foundation?
Well, I can assure you, you're not alone.
Makeup is supposed to help make your skin look smoother and hide imperfections. Not accentuate lines and pores and make your skin look dry and cakey!
In this May issue, I'll show you some tips I use to make my foundation makeup look better.
P.S. It's not about using expensive makeup brands, it's about application. The most common reason for a crepey look is the use of too much foundation.
This can lead to an uneven application that can settle into fine lines and wrinkles, making them more noticeable and creating a crepey effect.
As I get older, and my skin texture changes, I can't seem to get my makeup to provide the coverage I want without that dry, cakey, wrinkled look!
After testing different application methods and makeup brands, I found that it's not about the type or brand of makeup I use.
It's how I apply it and what I do before applying makeup.
Now, even cheap drugstore makeup looks great on my skin, since I found the three secrets to the perfect application.
1. Your skin has to be clean and exfoliated. As we age, we need to exfoliate more often to keep those dead cells from clogging our pores and settling into deep wrinkles.
2. Your skin must be well hydrated. Moisturize well right before applying your makeup.
3. Most important: Stop using your fingers or brushes to apply your makeup. I found that by using a makeup paddle, I use MUCH less makeup.
And, I'm still able to get the coverage (to hide dark spots or broken blood vessels) I need for a smoother looking complexion.
The makeup paddle does a great job of hiding (or not exaggerating) pores that are especially visible around my nose and mouth.

The longevity power of positive thinking
Do you ever doubt the power of positive thinking?
Maybe it's time to end your skepticism if you want to live longer!
Researchers found that having an optimistic attitude and focusing on the good things really is the key to living a long life.
In a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, researchers found that optimism was positively associated with longer lifespans, with the most optimistic women even living past 90 years old, regardless of their racial or ethnic background.
In this study, a total of over 150,000 postmenopausal women (ages 50-79) across diverse socioeconomic groups and ethnicities were followed for up to 26 years.
Results show that the 25% most optimistic subjects had a 5.4% longer lifespan and a 10% greater chance of living to 90 years old than the 25% least optimistic.
