hi! I’m Stacey (not26anymore)
Thanks for visiting my blog. I started Not26Anymore as a way to document my journey with healthier eating, fitness, and weight loss but over time I wanted to share the other things that I care about: fashion, makeup, beauty, and how life seems to make a lot of these things more difficult once you’re in your mid-30s! After I started my YouTube Channel in March 2017 I wanted to separate out my fitness/food content and my beauty content thus Not26AnymoreBeauty was born.
For the last few years, makeup and beauty have become a bigger and bigger hobby. I enjoy watching makeup tutorials and trying new products. There are definitely unique aspects of using makeup when you also have fine lines and wrinkles! I blog and vlog about some of my favorite anti-aging products. I love both high end and more affordable beauty. I know from experience skincare is the place to splurge if you have aging skin!
Some of my favorite makeup and beauty brands are: Colourpop, tarte, Jeffree Star, Makeup Revolution, Huda Beauty, and Viseart. Some of my favorite skincare brands are: Perricone MD, Estee Lauder (the OG), Youth To The People, Osmotics, Rodial, and L’Oreal skincare.
Since I like to spend all my money on beauty, I also love thrifting and consignment shopping. The more you save on clothes and accessories the more you can spend on makeup right?! If you’re interested in that you should check out ThriftChicos.
