If you want some fabulous ideas on how to do your own, affordable midlife makeover, then you must watch this show! Beauty expert, Alice Atakhanian, offers some unique and affordable tips are really easy to follow. I visited her at her new salon, Beyond Beauty, in Glendale, California where she turned my plain mid-life crisis worn face into a work of art!
What was even more exciting was Alice’s three makeup must-haves are inexpensive and can be found at most local drugstore chains, like CVS.
The first product she used was Pond’s Moisturizer, which I found to be very rich and creamy without being oily or leaving a residue. The second great product to use, was L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara, which I had bought recently to try and really liked it so it was great to see a true professional uses it. And lastly, was absolutely my favorite new makeup find – NYX Pencils. I couldn’t believe how easy to apply these eyeliner pencils were, they were firm enough to draw a straight line but soft enough that they didn’t pull on my skin when applied. Also, the pigments are rich and they come in what seems to be a zillion colors and at about $7.00 each, they are better than some of the higher priced pencils I’ve used in the past.
Then when you save money on products you use daily, you can put what you’re saving towards some very good makeup brushes, which Alice says are a must, not a splurge.
