Makeup & Chill – Polite Society & Ace Beaute

Makeup and Chill – it’s back! Way back in the Lockdown Days, I had a little series of videos of me putting on my makeup to music… no talk-through, just makeup and some time to chill out. I get a lot of requests for full face makeup tutorials, and while I don’t always have time to talk through my whole face (I run this channel while also running a side business and teaching full time at JMU), I can flip on the camera and record some of my work-day makeup. So here’s that compromise! Do you want to see more of these? Let’s chill out and do our makeup together! All products linked below. #makeupover40

Does your skin care routine feel totally random and you can’t tell if it’s working? The fix is simple: plan out your routine and track it. I’ve made an easy printable planner/tracker worksheet to help you get started!
