Thanks for bringing a series to TV that is focused on bringing out the best in a person and saying, "You know what? Your dreams can come true and that fantasy of yours is AWESOME!" Bravo to you and the entire staff and producers!
Well, this is my first time to ask for assistance, but it is overdue and I feel that you will provide a suggestion that is current, empowering and beautiful.
I will be 48 on December 16 and I miss the head-turning figure and face that I used to have. I am pleasant enough. I am told by my seven children that I do not look my age. My husband is always telling me what a beautiful smile I have. I am loved, respected and I am told that I am funny. And I am very much an encourager and optimist. I love seeing the light come on in my children's eyes, grand children's, my husbands, co-workers and I seem to be the person that strangers always talk to.
I feel like I look ordinary or worse frumpy. :-( But I know the spark and certainly the desire to not accept ordinary is my heart's desire. I know that it is not too late to be well ... a better, sexier, pulled-together, professional version of me. I can still wear all my hats and turn heads too :-)
I would love to know which foundation is best for me, what colors, how do you use glitter, highlighters and concealers to maximize my assets. What are my assets? Clothes: ugh, what works?
I do use Artistry skin care which is awesome but I am confused and overwhelmed with what to use in terms of foundations, color and the NAO WOW factor products. Your professional opinion is very valuable and will be very much appreciated.
I would like to look professional like Dianne Sawyer and Mary Hart, with the feistiness of Kirsti Alley and Candice Bergen. Of course, I need to lose weight, exercise and invest in the right clothes and makeup, but maybe there are things I can do now while I work on changing the weight and healthy body style?
Thanks for taking your time to listen and I look forward to your reply. God bless you in your work and once again congratulations on your newest adventure!
Happy belated birthday, my girl. Doesn't it rock that your birth "day" is actually celebrated each day from here forth that you live your life 'til your very next next?
Connie, I love that you radiate confidence, gratitude, and respect for yourself. And that through this, you KNOW you deserve to feel great about the way that you look. THAT, my girl, is truly the essence to "looking beautiful."
So, now that you can emotionally identify your beauty on the inside, it's time to feel and see that in color so you can decorate what we see on the outside. Does your radiant smile feel like being a chipper pink, a sensuous mocha, or a ravishing red today? What mood are you in to show others how you feel through your eyes?
Color has an amazing way of immediately generating a mood around you, so start there when it comes to what kind of mood you would like other to feel in your presence. I've never been rigid when it comes to the "right" kind of colors that people should wear.
Through the different techniques of blending and combining shades, anyone can get away with anything if they are confident that it shows THEM off. So, pick the NAO shades that attract you, watch the short application videos on the NAOCosmetics.com website for application ideas, and HAVE FUN.
