Wouldn’t it be nice to live in a world where people are not judged by their appearance? Then you could go out in public with all your pimples and dark spots and discolorations, moles, warts, fine lines and deep wrinkles, mustache shadow and what not, and no one will make you feel like you’re the ugliest thing that has ever walked the face of earth.

But we don’t like in a world where people are not judged by their appearance. And some of us aren’t born with the courage it takes to show our real imperfect face to the world without concern for what anyone might think of our looks.

Few women are so lucky to have so-called perfect skin. Some of us need a major make-over every day to look just reasonably okay. Others can just put on a little lip gloss and clear mascara and go. This minimal everyday makeup how-to is for those ladies who don’t require a major make-over before they can get to at least a 5 on the beauty scale.

Prep your face with a BB cream

BB creams (beauty balms) are the new “it” product in beauty. Or so it seems. They are used to “streamline your beauty routine” according to WebMD.

This versatile skin care/makeup hybrid promises to do the job of five or six other jars and tubes: moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, skin treatment, concealer, and foundation. “The idea of a well-formulated BB cream is that it’s the only product you’ll need after you wash your face,” says Ni’Kita Wilson, a cosmetic chemist at Englewood Lab in New Jersey… Via webmd

Hello, I'm Adela Lewis aka singer songwriter Adelamonica. I am the founder, creative director, editor in chief and main writer for avenuesixty.com. First let me say, I myself cringe at some of the things I've written on this blog which I started in 2012 (including what I'm writing now). It is completely embarrassing to realize how miserably I've been failing to hide the fact that I lack sophistication, and often times lack enlightenment on very basic topics. I wish I had never written half the things I've written on here, but I did write them. In my defense, I'm human. There is much I do not know about anything and sometimes we have to make mistakes in order to learn and grow. To be clear, I am just a regular person who enjoys writing, modeling, and doing things that make me happy and keep me actively engaged in living and being . I refer to myself as "editor in chief" and "creative director" because, owning the blog as I do and being the one who creates and edits the content (with the exception of content submitted by third party contributors), I feel that I have the freedom to do so. Via this blog, I am contributing my personal thoughts and ideas and beliefs on everyday topics of discussion--at times topics on which I am not particularly well informed, but about which I might still have a point of view--much like most other people on the planet . The things I write should be regarded in the light of diary/journal style and essay style writings, reviews and reports exploring the topics I attempt to discuss. Please recognize that I have no academic or other professional credentials and I do not represent my points of view as carrying any weight or having anything of significant value to contribute to serious discussions held by experts on any topic featured. I apologize in advance for any errors major or minor that I make in my writing (I have made some embarrassing errors), anything I write that can be perceived as an offense or that is otherwise insensitive or needlessly critical and disparaging of any person. I am a work in progress and committed to striving to live consciously in a spirit of light and love. It does not mean I will not sometimes act and write in contradiction of that goal.
