I've been tagged by my new blogging buddies over at Virtuous Blue. I think I'm stretched out on a limb calling them beauty secrets, but I'm game...
Petula's Beauty Secrets
My Foundation: If I wear any it's Sheer Coverage Mineral Foundation, but now that other brands have their owns mineral options I'll probably choose something more cost effective when I run out.
My Mascara: I love MaxxFactor XXXL. My lashes, which are short, never looked as lush as they did when I use this brand.
My Day Cream: Olay Daily Moisturizer with SPF 15 (Remember when they were called Oil of Olay?). The combination one works best for me.
My Essential Beauty Product: Tinted lip gloss. I don't remember the brand I'm using now and I'm too lazy to get up.
My Favorite Makeup Product: I don't really have a favorite.
My Perfume: Donna Karan's Gold (This is what I'm wearing now, but I prefer oils.)
My Nails: I just like my nails neat and clean. I prefer polish, but hate keeping it up. So bare has been best as of late. (My remember when moment: From the time I was about 18 until about 22 I wore my nails long and painted them every Thursday while watching the Cosby Show and A Different World.)
My Feet: A creamy foot lotion is a must and absolutely no going barefoot. Age is not kind on the feet so you have to make sure you care for them right.
My Hands: A good lotion is essential for hands and all over. Right now I'm using Dove Cream Oil and Dove ProAge. The cream oil does wonders on the feet and other hard to moisturize areas.
Three Products to bring on a deserted island: I'm with Kenya on this one... Vaseline (what can you NOT do with this product?), body/face cleanser and sunblock.
Women I admire for their beauty: Well, as I woman who is about to turn 40, I have been really admiring the beauty of women who are 40 and older. I am amazed at how vibrant, alive and young looking a lot are including Tina Turner, Oprah, Angela Bassett, Cher, Mya Angelou... and many others. They inspire me to maintain my youth (inside and out) despite my age.
Women with the Best Sense of Style: Hmmm... I don't think there's a particular woman who I like their sense of style. When I see a woman who rocks her wear and is confident in herself as a person (or at least carries herself confidently) then I notice them as best in style.
My Ultimate Dream: To continue to educate, entertain and enlighten with my writing AND make money doing it! :-)
How Do I Define Womanhood: Reaching a point in life where you're comfortable with who you are, confident enough to be yourself and honest enough to tell it like it is.
My Favorite Fashion Publication: I don't really read fashion mags, but as of late I've been checking out Harper's Bazaar. Although the prices are outrageous I am learning a lot about myself and the things I like.
I would love to see what your beauty secrets are; I'm not going to tag anyone in particular so if you do it then let me know 'cause I would love to read it.
