Aging and the art of applying makeup

I am 46 years old and feel really good about it. This is probably the most physically trained I have been in years. I love my job. I have a wonderful family. I am thankful. Ahhh...

One thing that I cannot do anymore, though, is put on makeup. If you are above the age of 40, you understand how your eyes change. You can't see if you have glasses on. You can't see if you take them off. You can't see if you have your contacts in. You resist the bi-focals. You end up dreaming about the bi-focals ;) Anyway, I am so happy that many celebrities and fashionistas are posting instagram photos of themselves without make up on because I have given up wearing it. May I add that it is not in an effort to "free my face" but- simply- because I cannot see up close enough to put the damn stuff on. After countless mascara accidents and free form eyeliner jobs, I have decided to default into the makeup free category. You now know my secret... please keep it from the fashion police.... for once, I would like them to think that I am a part of a trend ;)

Happy day to you all! xox

Me, before makeup.

Me ,with makeup... pretty darn close ;)
