Women over 40 beauty, skincare, fashion, fitness and lifestyle, Keeping it Real

A few more holiday beauty gift ideas worth sharing.
If you haven’t used a Tweezerman tweezers, well you are definitely missing out on precision plucking.   For the holidays they have the Brow Beauty Bubble.  It’s a cute candy cane striped mini tweezer with a bubble shaped mirror that is magnified 10x.  Great for on-the-go or perfect for at home when you need to see those hard to see hairs by your chinny chin chin. $20 at Tweezerman


A great makeup bag is a must for every beauty fanatic.  And giving yourself one or a friend one for the holidays is an excellent gift.   These by A.Tierney are not only cute but efficient too.  $25


Let’s face it – the eyes seem to go when you’re over 40.   So instead of fighting it, get the perfect pair for yourself or a loved one so they always look stylish!  Design Your Own Eyewear has the Indivijual Custom Eyewear line that gives you a mold for your nose for a custom fit along with a questionnaire to understand your personality and more.   After all, your glasses are an every day accessory. 


Every woman deserves a set of ecoTools makeup brushes in her stocking!   This 6-piece set is made from eco-friendly bamboo and 100% cruelty free synthetic taklon.   It includes the must-haves for perfect makeup application and can fit any beauty budget at only $12.99. 

80 Acres has these great candles or hand and body collections in these jute bags.   The ingredients are from McEvoy Ranch in CA and come in lavender and verde scents.  Starting at $36 for the candle and $65 for body care sets. 


Beauty isn’t for women only.  Make any man feel special with this Tweezerman Pour Homme Kit.  It includes a stainless file, clippers and facial scissors in a brown leather case.  $99 at Nordstrom or Nordstrom.com


I am obsessed with the Alex and Ani  line of jewelry.  From simple organic shapes to elegant fine stones this is some of the most gorgeous jewelry around, and let’s not forget the expandable bracelets – stunning!   And it’s not ridiculously expensive jewelry either.  Check out the section on their website where you can design your own bracelet.  They carry a bracelet that I am hoping Santa will put under the tree this year!
