Channeling my inner 80s Carol Kane today! I used a Conair 1/2” barrel to achieve this look. I love it! It’s so fun and bouncy! How are you today?

You have to do what works for you. After decades trying to get eyeliner to work for me, I finally gave up and found that I have an easier time applying black eyeshadow as my “eye liner”. Sure it doesn’t have the same longevity as an eyeliner but it works for me. Once I let go of trying to conform, I felt a freedom to experiment with brushes, and eyeshadow brands and colours. I used to rarely wear eyeshadow. Now, I’m having so much fun learning about all I can do with it at 43!
😁😘👀

Well would ya look at that. My @lancomeofficial Rouge Flamboyant lippy matches my @oldnavy plaid button up which everyone in town seems to own. Lol! I head down to the mall and I see 3 girls with the same dang shirt! Haha! 💄❤️

Hey there. Hi there. Ho there. Have been having fun practicing the exposure triangle today, thanks to the information I received from @sherrybrownphotography’s Fundamentals of Photography course I took last week. New blog post up about my experience. Check out the link in my bio. 📸

Unnecessary zoom! 🤣 I’ve been working on being kind to myself this year and I’ve got to say, it feels good to be “feelin’ myself” as Beyoncé would say. Today I looked at my body and didn’t hate it. Now THAT is an accomplishment! Be good to yourself, friends! 😘

I sure do love a good backlit photo! I’ve never really been great at eyeshadow application so it’s usually more on the conservative side. I’ve learned I do like a good inner eye highlight though—brought to you today by the colour “Enlight” found in the @jaclynhill @morphebrushes palette. Also using my @burtsbeesca lippy in “Crimson Coast” which I applied with a @lisewatier lip brush for precision. Eyebrows are over-plucked from my teenage/20s years and, guess what? I still like them. I’ve given up on the overdone brow and it’s freeing! Haha! To each their own though. If you prefer a full brow, you go for it gurl—keep that eyebrow game strong!💗

Even though it technically cuts a path through a graveyard, there’s something magical about the Birdcage Walk in Bristol, no matter what time of the year it is. I do like graveyards though...

(It bugs me that the geotag is all one word—birdcagewalk. Why IG?)
