Hey I’m Maggie De. I am so glad you’re here!!!
When I started this crazy skin care and makeup journey at 5:00 AM in the morning more than a year ago, I didn’t expect to wind up here – writing a bio for my own website and working as a content creator.
At that point in my journey, I really just wanted my eyelids to look a little smoother, and to be able to wear foundation that did make me look older than I actually am.
Now I’ve been making YouTube videos and product reviews on Instagram for more than a year and I must admit I’m hooked on it.
I’m not sure where this endeavor’s taking me, but I do know that I have enjoyed connecting with other women in our age and beauty space. And I treasure the online support system that we have together.
If you want to find other over 50 and over 60 creators to follow, the best way to search Makeup Over 50, Makeup Over 60, Life over 60, Life After 60 on Instagram, YouTube, FB. I find it to be a welcoming space and a fun community to be a part of.
My Maggie De YouTube channel, and this website maggie.com, is a place that I hope you enjoy hanging out with me and perhaps learning about some new products, or new ideas, to make you feel better about yourself. I know for me after menopause, I have really struggled with feeling good about my appearance. I’m a little bit embarrassed to admit it because we’re supposed to be strong women and it seems so shallow to feel this way.
But one thing is for certain, I’m certainly not alone in these feelings. I also know we have a lot of challenges over 50 to find makeup, skin care, beauty products in general that work for us at our age. And don’t even get me started on the super expensive super glittery eye shadow palettes that I wind up using only one color from.
I am retired from corporate life. I mainly worked at a large insurance company most of my career and then owned my own tiny web development company for about 5 years before I “officially” retired = whatever that means nowadays. I am married for many years, to a wonderful man. We are very thankful to have children and grandchildren in our family to love and spend time with.
As for hobbies, …. well this is it! Although do like to camp and hike in the Rocky Mountains, I consider shopping for makeup, and messing around making videos as my major hobby these days.
If you’re curious …. I have dry skin, wrinkles, and all that comes with being nearly 60 years old. No cosmetic surgery … yet, but I’m open to it! I did have a laser spot treatment for brown age spots on my face and hands -worth every penny. No Botox or injections for me yet, but there’s nothing like staring at your face for hours and hours while editing your videos to motivate you to get some Botox!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by my website and thank you for the top taking the time to read a little bit about me. Please don’t hesitate to connect with me on social media – I am fairly active on Instagram and I try to post new videos every week on YouTube.
