Oh Yeah...That's Right...I'm In My 40s Giveaway Part 1


If you are 41, are you in your 40s? Well, I am in 41 and soon...ahhhh very soon I will be hitting 42, and I am excited to say that thanks to Anna from Hachette Book Group, I get to take a huge leap forward into some Boomer Beauty! And you can leap with me too with an awesome giveaway! YAY! So want to know what is up for grabs? FIVE WINNERS WILL GET:

Bobbi Brown Living Beauty by Bobbi Brown and Marie Clare Katigbak-Sillick


Publish Date: 4/6/2009
ISBN: 9780446581295
Pages: 224

About the Book (from the publisher's website): Bobbi Brown began the trend toward natural-looking cosmetics with a simple philosophy: Women want to look and feel like themselves, only prettier and more confident. Today, top editors at elite fashion magazines--including In Style, Vogue, Allure, and Harpers Bazaar--revere her, and celebrities and millions of regular women throughout the world swear by her beauty advice. Now Bobbi Brown has written THE book redefining beauty for women over 40, BOBBI BROWN LIVING BEAUTY. In this refreshing look at beauty and aging, Bobbi offers specific makeup tricks for a stunning face--showing how makeup can solve most of the flaws that many women go under the knife to fix. In fact, the right makeup can create an even skin tone, lift the cheeks, plump a smile...even take years off any woman's face. The key is to use makeup to enhance each woman's best features and showcase her natural beauty. With step-by-step makeup instructions and quotes from beautiful women like Marcia Gay Harden, Vera Wang, Susan Sarandon, and Lorraine Bracco, Bobbi Browns natural, celebratory approach to aging will enlighten and inspire women everywhere.

As a woman who is firmly planting her feet in the 40s, I was like "I MUST READ THIS!" I don't believe you have to be 40 however to get value out of anything Bobbi Brown has to share. And the natural look. I remember being in my 20s and totally working on our makeup to make it look like we weren't wearing any. :)

MAIN ENTRY: Extra entries are great, but this needs to be done before the others.
For your main entry tell me what is your must have beauty product if any. My must have is a nude lipfrost that I have to have. It is a nice color that I can use on my lips, cheeks and eyes if I have nothing else on hand. I wouldn't say it gives me a polished look by any means, but it works very nicely in a pinch. Especially in the summer when I don't really need much makeup anyway.

Additonal entries: Do one or more of the following but please leave a comment for each.

My one must-have is my tinted moisturizer with SPF - it's the easiest and quickest way for me to give myself some colour and brighten up my look.

I am all about the tinted moisturizer as well.

Vanessa said...

I follow!

Susan Helene Gottfried said...

OMG, tinted moisturizer? I am SO out of the makeup thing... SO clueless...

Let's keep it that way 'cause I'm really dropping in to just say hello and thanks for the e-mail. I've posted about this over at Win a Book for you.

My must have is a combo. I use a moisturizing lotion on my face and then a powder foundation. I don't go without this very often because I have very red skin tones on my face (runs in the family), while the rest of my skin is extremely white. The foundation evens out/blends all of the skintones.

Favourite beauty product right now is my Green Tea with Tea Tree oil cleanser.

Hi, What great books! I am over 50 and would be thrilled to read them.

Many thanks to you, Cindi

My must have product is oil-free facial sunscreen. I burn so easily I must put it on every day or I'll have a beet red peeling nose! Not flattering! :)

My must have beauty product is Philosophy's Purity face wash. It takes your makeup (even mascara) off, and leaves your face soft and clean. I love it! Thanks for the contest.
