Every year for the Holidays I receive a Gift Card to Best Buy, and I love that store. Partly because their colors are blue and gold (like the San Diego Chargers - GO BOLTS!) and mainly because I'm a big fan of music and electronics. You can shop there too with online promo codes to get big discounts on all the things that you wanted, but didn't get for Christmas perhaps.

What I love about blog marketing with PayPerPost. What an exciting program this is, being able to make some cash while writing about things you like, and giving your opinion - and what woman doesn't enjoy giving her opinion? I'm new to it and I'm having an immense amount of fun with it already. Maybe my blog will be selected as "Blog of the Day" soon. I also like to watch the status report of other bloggers and how much money they have earned. Many folks were able to have a very Merry Christmas thanks to PayPerPost. I didn't join in enough time for that to happen, but I'm working on having a great Valentine's Day thanks to the program.
Five-Minute Makeup Routine. If you're short on time in the mornings (and who isn't?) just take these seven quick steps and you'll be made up for the day. It takes just 5 minutes. Cleanse and moisturize your face, then apply your foundation. Dust on some bronzing powder to give you some color. Lightly put it on your cheeks, chin, middle of forehead and nose. One quick coat of mascara, then a neutral lip gloss and finish with a creamy neutral eye color on your eyelid and up to the browbone. It will dry to a powder and last all day. Off you go!

Makeup Tips for Women over 50 - If you're fifty and up, you might want to pay attention to these handy makeup hints.
Start with a sheer foundation on skin that has been exfoliated. Be careful not to use too much foundation.
Apply loose powder to set your foundation and make it more transfer-proof.
Nothing worse than leaving foundation marks on someone's clothing after giving them a hug!
The other night on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Ving Rhames left some foundation marks on Conan's cheek.
Eyeshadow colors should be matte finish with as little shine as possible as it will make wrinkles and fine lines stand out.
As far as blusher or rouge, use a creamy blush right on the apples of your cheekbones. Be sure to blend well. The effect you're going for is that someone ran up and pinched your cheeks and made them rosy.
Select a lipstick in a neutral shade. Top with lip gloss. All women over 40 should wear lip gloss because it gives a youthful appearance.
Apply eyeliner on the upper eyelids only. To put it on the bottom would only make your eyes look heavy and droopy. Use short, sketchy strokes when applying eyeliner.
End with mascara.

Moisturizer - Use it on the area between the bottom of your nose and your upper lip when you have a cold to keep it from getting red and chapped from repeated nose-blowing. I'm suffering through a cold right now and I use my regular daily facial moisturizer this way. I apply it throughout the day to keep the chapping and redness away.

Holiday 2006 Glamour Looks - It's all about the shimmer and the shine. Subtle sparkles will give you just the right look for all those fabulous holiday parties. For the body, try a shimmery body lotion. For the face, accent your regular makeup with shimmery highlights. Put a splash of a sparkly creme-to-powder eyeshadow on the outside of your eyes, just below the browbone. Use the same product to place a dot of color on the inside corner of your eyelid.
Top your lipstick with a touch of ultra shimmery lip gloss on just the center of your top and bottom lips.
Select a cream blush that has just a hint of sparkle to it. Blend well! The trick is to make it look like someone ran up and pinched your cheeks to make them rosy. You don't want stripes on your face.

Give Your Hands a Hand! They put up with a lot and the skin on your hands deserves to be taken care of. The skin on the back of your hands contains very few oil glands. That's why hands tend to show their age more than almost any other body part. Keep the skin on your hands moisturized. Use a good hand cream and remember to wear gloves when cleaning, gardening or doing the dishes. Take care of your hands and they will take care of you.
