Hey you! So happy you are here in my little beauty corner! I´m an over 40 beauty lover and I am sharing here beauty tips - especially for women over 40- on how to look young and fresh and other inspirational things! I hope you stick around!

Oh- I also have a YouTube channel! ;-)

FAQ Frequently asked questions:

1. Which hair color do you use? 

(This is by far the question I get asked most often!) I currently use the Ion Color Brilliance Permanent Creme in the color 10A -Lightest Ash Blonde with a 20 Volume Developer. My natural hair color is dark blonde. I usually apply it only on the roots or just do some random highlights.

2. How do you take care of your nails?

I am very blessed with healthy nails and haven´t changed a thing in my nail routine since many years. You can see what I exactly do here

3. What is your skin type?

I have combination skin: an oily T-zone, but I am very dry around my eyes. My cheeks are pretty normal. I have forehead lines and wrinkles, crow´s feet around my eyes. Hey, I am  not in my 20s anymore! ;-) Sometimes I get breakouts- it used to be on my forehead, but these days I notice they are more on my lower cheeks (like almost where the neck begins) and my chin. I don´t have sensitive skin.

4. Which foundation do you like best that doesn´t enhance wrinkles?

I really like the IT Cosmetics CC cream as well as the Too Faced Born this way- both give me a more "glowy look" and a great medium coverage. On a day to day basis, I rather look a bit shiny than dry and wrinkly! Ha! However, if I really like to stay matte, I made a good experience with the Bare Minerals Barepro  : great coverage, you need not much and it contains SPF20!

5. Which concealer doesn´t crease?

Concealers are a hassle once you get those darn fine lines and wrinkles! I prefer a dewy finish! My top 2 favorites are: the Advanced Mineral Concealer and the IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Undereye Anti-Aging Concealer.

6. What is your skin color?

I have a light to medium skin tone. I got matched at Sephora for the Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation in 3.5 (light beige w/ slight pink undertone).

7. What camera do you use?

For portrait photos I use the Canon G1X because it brings the face into focus while blurring the background (in the portrait setting). I also find that it makes my skin look less wrinkled! LOL!

While I appreciate the "blurring" effect for portrait photos- for product photos I want to see the details and that is why I use the Sony Cybershot DSC-H20 for that! Makes amazing macro shots up close. This camera is very old and therefor super affordable- but I can recommend it highly for macro shots.

 8. Where are you from?

I was born and grew up in Germany. In Berlin to be exact! Yes, that is where this silly accent is from. ;-)
