Beauty routines women over 40 – video

Posted by

Girrrrrrl….I finally got my nerve up again!  This is my second beauty video for women over 40.  I was going to aim for a 5-minute face, but I didn’t like my 5-minute face. :0

I especially want to make more of them because there just aren’t very many videos out there featuring  beauty routines for middle-aged women. There should be. Further, it’s sort of difficult to find ones that work for me as a woman of color who is also over 40 – double challenge!

Further insult to injury is I can’t always do the same processes as the twenty-something beauty vloggers because my eyelids look different! Ha!  My over 40 sisters know what I mean.

My ultimate goal is to look good in my forties,
feel good about myself and not dress like an old lady before my time!

I’ve labeled this video as beauty and style tips for women 40 and over. Please hop over to my brand new YouTube channel (or watch it below) and follow me as I explore my 40something life and fashion as a vlogger. Maybe Youtube will be a great medium of living out my mission statement. Who knows?

You’ll also be glad to know I purchased Pinnacle Studio 20. The learning curve is a bit tough, but I’m up for the task!  I hope to deliver more videos to you soon as I learn this software.

Thanks for visiting  as I learn to navigate this new medium! I’d love to hear from you, please rate, comment, & subscribe.  I especially welcome feedback, tips and ideas.

  1. As a professional esthetician/makeup artist, I love seeing more mature women (like myself) doing make up videos!! I have a beauty and fashion page on my blog as well so maybe at some point we can collaborate!!

  2. Lady – you’re gorgeous! It is harder as we age to find resources/tutorials, and you’re doing a beautiful work. (I’m a decade in front of you, and have rarely worn makeup, so I’m all “eyes” 🙂 )

    It’s a great video! (and I SO understand the whole editing thing.)

  3. You are gorgeous! I have major dark circles and haven’t bought anything for them yet! Will have to NYX to cover my raccoon eyes!
