Hi, I’m Stacey! 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, and I blog and vlog about some of my favorite products! I love both high end and more affordable products. I believe 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, Makeup Geek, Coloured Raine, and Viseart. Some of my favorite skincare brands are: Perricone MD, Dr. Brandt, Estee Lauder (the OG), Youth To The People, Farmacy, and Loreal skincare.
I also love thrifting and consignment shopping, the more you save on clothes the more you can spend on makeup right? So if you’re interested in that check out ThriftChicos.
I’m 38, I live in Mississippi, I’m a social worker (LMSW) and I have spent most of my career working in mental health therapy. One day I hope to be able to combine my passions of holistic mental health (physical health as well as mental health) into my career. Currently I work in hospice and it’s a tough field so makeup helps me find the beauty in every day, even the really tough ones. I just got married in September 2018 to my boyfriend of four years. I love to spend time outdoors hiking with my husband and our three dogs. In addition to reading just about everything and writing on my blogs, I enjoy almost all kinds of music. I love to watch YouTube and beauty guru gossip is my guilty pleasure. I post daily on Instagram so lets be sure to connect there @Not26AnymoreBeauty! I also have a new YouTube video on my channel every Wednesday.
