Makeup tips for younger eyes

Is This Mutton's tips for using makeup to take the years off your eyes
The girl above has beautiful eyes and we can see she is not very old. Unfortunately eyes are one of the first places to show our age - why else do celebrities wear sunglasses so often?- and even if we're relaxed about growing older, it can be exasperating to see folds of loose skin, crepey lids and crow's eyes which become strobed with concealer as the day goes on.

There are surgical options of course, including eye bag removal (blepharoplasty) and brow lift. If you're thinking of going down that road, do your research and pay top price for best results.

Red and white

Red and white poppy skirt, white top with Peter Pan collar and ivory jacketA few weeks ago I featured outfits which give me confidence. This was one of my most popular posts, which shows the one thing we're all looking for is confidence!

When we're having a "fat day" a long jacket is good for the confidence, while a shot of red says that we're feeling on top of the world. We still need a jacket at this time of year but instead of a black jacket I'm wearing an ivory one. I'm still using the same felt flowers for a pop of color.

Fuchsia pink and white

Gail Hanlon, blogger, wearing a fuchsia pink top and sandals from Topshop
I've always loved fuchsia pink, even before the lovely Pamela at Style Yourself Confident told me I have cool coloring, so it's one of the colors that suits me.

I buy quite a lot from eBay and that's where I got this Kaliko top. I have several searches set up on eBay for things I love - Boden skirts, Joseph Ribkoff dresses, Fantasie swimwear (brand new).
