Spring into Jumpsuits

As you've probably seen, one of the big trends this year is the jumpsuit.  Well, I jumped straight in and bought this Young, Fabulous and Broke Jumpsuit in black.  Why do I love this trend?  I love the fact that I have a whole outfit with one piece.  It's very comfortable and it can go from day to night very easily. Pair it with some wedges or heels, a long chain necklace, a cute clutch and you've got a great, sophisticated look!





Here are a few others I love...



Will you jump in?

Natural Makeup for Women over 40

Recently, I filmed a natural makeup tutorial for women over 40 on You Tube.  This is a very natural look that can be worn on an interview, to work, to a school event or even going out to dinner.  The greatest part of this look is that you can easily change it or update it by just changing your lip color.  For this tutorial, I used a Nars Lipstick called Niagra, which is one of my favorite colors this time of year.



Also, remember that our skin can change with the seasons, so make sure to check your foundation color and formula.  For this look, I started off with the Benefit Pore Fessional to reduce the appearance of any pores in my t-zone.  Then, I mixed the Urban Decay Naked and the Diorskin Nude Hydrating foundation which gives a beautiful dewey look (Dior) that stays all day (Urban Decay).

Here are many of the products I used to achieve the look:
