Sugarpill Cosmetics-An EOTD on a 72 Year Old Woman


When I showed the Sugarpill Cosmetics Burning Heart Palette to my mum, I knew her eyes would fall out of her head.  Not because it was just too wild but because she would actually want the palette for herself.  Thank goodness I bought an extra palette so she wouldn't steal mine!  The palette consists of four colors:  Love+-a cool tone pearly red, Flamepoint-matte tangerine orange, Buttercupcake-bright matte yellow, and Poison Plum-a slightly shimmery purple with small specks of sparkle.  The palette retails for $34USD or shadows can be bought separately at $12.  Yes, the colors are outrageously loud and bright but Spring weather calls for some fun which shouldn't stop with age.

My mum's EOTD consists of using Sugarpill Love+ and her own mix of colors.  Please take note that "Olivia Sr." is all natural and has not had botox or plastic surgery.  She has nothing against people who do and for people who have done either or both and the person feels better that way then that is important, in her case, she feels better without them.  What is important here is to enjoy color no matter how subtle or wild but with some tasteful flair.  Defining and shaping the eyes is what makes the mature woman's looks stand out; the color becomes the accessory.


In this picture the colors that have been used are the following:

  • Browbone: Kryolan eyeshadow in Highlight

The red color can be replaced with any of the other Sugarpill colors or any neutral color.  Whatever the mood that is the area that can be the focus of fun.  Just because colorful makeup is usually seen on youthful faces, it doesn't mean that a mature woman can't wear them.  It is a matter of wearing enough without overpowering one's wisdom.  And, if you are wondering if Olivia Sr. wears red eyeshadow or any other bright eyeshadow in public, YOU BETCHA! :-)
