A groundbreaking celebration of ageless beauty, providing the ultimate skincare and makeup guide for women in their forties and beyond from celebrity makeup artist Riku Campo.
The first makeup guide to celebrate and support women forty and over, I Am Beauty is Riku Campo’s labor of love. Riku has worked with some of the most beautiful and recognized faces in the world, like Cindy Crawford, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anne Hathaway. But he has always wanted to create a book honoring those women we don’t always see on the runaways and in magazines—women like his mother, whose beauty is everlasting.
I Am Beauty includes step-by-step tutorials, advice from skincare experts, and Riku’s best behind-the-chair tips every woman needs to revitalize her routine, including:
- Day and night skincare routines that keep you fresh and beautiful, whether you’re in your forties, fifties, sixties, or beyond
- At-home facial massages to stimulate collagen production and optimal skin health
- Must-have everyday makeup tools
- Choosing the right foundation for all skin tones, types, and textures
- Tricks for modern, elegant eyebrows and keeping lipstick fresh all day
- Eyeshadow colors and types that work best on mature skin
- Finding the eyeglass designs that best complement your style and daily makeup
Riku also has one-on-one conversations and day-and-night makeovers with sixteen incredible women—each with her own unique style—and shares their secrets for finding beauty in all parts of life.
Comprehensive, practical, and inspiring, packed with more than 100 full-color photos, I Am Beauty is the ultimate resource for women to maintain their glow and live their most joyful, beautiful lives.

I've had a cup of coffee with creme brulee creamer, and I'm having some toast with my homemade Nectarine and Brown Sugar Jam.
Looking around the house::::
It is clean, thankfully, I did it all over the weekend so I could have today be a little more relaxed.
On today's to do list::::
I am now in 2 Corinthians in the Bible
On the TV this week::::
The weather outside is::::
Fallish, so so happy to be able to type that. We are expecting quite a bit of rain this week, so I'm thrilled about that too.
Tuesday - Hamburger Helper, Salad
Wednesday - Slow Cooker Jambalaya Risotto
Thursday - Smoked Sausage and Potatoes, Salad
Friday - *Grocery shopping*
If I have a few minutes to myself, I will::::
Read, I've been enjoying reading again, but it's one of those that I need to find time to fit in and then I have to force myself to enjoy it and not feel guilty for sitting down. I have this thing where I start feeling like I should be up and doing something. Anyone else?
New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
The Nectarine Brown Sugar Jam is new, and it will be up along with a few others.
One of my simple pleasures::::
Sitting on the couch with Elliott, either reading, or just listening to the birds as they sit on the feeder.
