Best Make up for Women in Their 30'S

Okay I honestly cannot remember the last time that I actually liked the way my make up looked. Something happened to my skin after I had my little pumpkin and definitely after I turned 30. I wear less make up because I feel like when I put more on it looks worse. NEED HELP!

Go to www.everydayminerals.com. They are out of Austin and they color match I.D. Mineral make-up and there are more choices. They are half the cost too! I matched the Fairly light in a couple different finishes..you can try them for cheap and they have specials. And..great coverage for scars and age spots. (I do not work for them!)

I use Southern Magnolia Minerals and love it. It's like Bare Minerals but WAY WAY WAY cheaper and is made from a WAHM so I like supporting her instead of a huge business. She sends stuff for free and always includes free samples too which I like :) I also like that she lists all ingredients and everything is natural. Check out her site at www.smmcosmetics.com - I've been wearing it for about 1.5 or so and I just turned 30. For my skin care I use Kiss My Face products which I like too.

I have three crucial steps - 1. A salycilic acid wash (most anti acne washes are), right now I use clearasil pads because they're convenient and I can keep them in the bathroom, the car, and on my night stand - no excuse for dirty skin.

2. A good moisturizer. I've always used Oil of Olay, but what works for your skin is what works.

3. I use mineral makeup - the cheap stuff by N.Y.C. I love the way it makes my skin look, and the way it feels.

Hi A.:

I had to respond to your question b/c I just found something that I really love after many years of searching.

I just found MAC mineral powder (the packed kind, not the loose powder). It's about $26, but lasts for a long time, and during the summer months doesn't make you feel greasy.

I just turned 40 and my skin wasn't looking great. Now, with just a quick swipes, I'm good to go!

Good Luck!

Good luck!

Hi A.. I know what you mean! I'm 37 and for about 5 years, I've quit using liquid foundation and now I only use tinted moisturizer. For some reason it just seems to make my skin look better. It was weird - all of a sudden, one day about 6 years ago, it looked like that liquid makeup was just sitting on top of my skin - not blending in at all. I looked like my mother! EEK! So I tried the tinted moisturizer and I really like it. I use Neutrogena. It's about $15 and it is tinted and also has SPF 30. I buy it at Walgreens but I know it's available at Target too.

If you don't plan on getting pregnant any time soon, I would suggest Obagi skin care. It was recommended by my dermatologist and it's amazing.

As for make up, I love Bare Minerals. They have a store at Willowbend Mall and I think one at North Park. Of course it is also sold at Ulta, but I like trained sales associates with real knowledge of the products I am buying.
