Adapting to changing times
Knowing what works with on-camera personalities led Deborah naturally to launch a business helping private clients adapt to changing times and needs.

In fact, it was because cosmetic and makeup companies didn’t address the unique makeup needs of older women inspired her to found GRACE Makeup for Midlife a decade ago. Making the information more easily available was the driving force behind the book.

“I want to share with women the knowledge and power to feel confident, fabulous, and secure with a personal look they can do at home that matches their personality, ideal colors, and lifestyle.”

“Since I love to share tips, information, and analyze my screen and hydration spraypersonal client's best colors—not only in makeup but in what to wear to look fabulous—it seemed a natural step to write the book.

    Jane Iredale
Jane Iredale is the powerhouse founder and president of Iredale Mineral Cosmetics, which was established in 1994 to provide safe makeup products with integrity, and has written the introduction to Deborah's new book.

“Thank you, Jane.”

“My approach to makeup is to bring out what you love and the rest will disappear and so I'm unbelievably pleased that Jane is introducing my book—since her philosophy that makeup artistry should enhance the wearer's natural beauty instead of always conforming to fashion trends so closely mirrors my own.” Deborah

The excerpt below is from Jane Iredale's introduction to Deborah's book, ‘The grace Factor.’

“Makeup isn’t trivial! If you don’t believe me, listen to Deborah Williams who says this about her new book filled with so many truths and tips about makeup that she believes that it “... will give women permission to be their best.” I agree.

“Deborah has a simple and effective way of making sure that you optimize your natural beauty. In her words, “Celebrate what you love (about yourself) and what you don’t love will fade away.”

“Using this as her underlying philosophy, Deborah has written a guide to makeup that includes the best tools for application; how to work with the shape of your face and the shape of your eyes; what products work the best for different skin types, and how to celebrate your age.

“I am certain you are going to find answers to questions that have plagued you for years and you will come away with knowledge that will help you to be the best you can be.”

winter fashion trends elle

From ski jackets in the office and puffer jackets (again?), what's old seems to be new again for fashion forward thinkers this winter.

Turtlenecks are big as well and can be layered, so don't hide away your summer frocks. Layer them. You might even be able to stay on trend by having a hunt through the back of your closet where certain old favorites may be hiding! (Platform shoes, anyone?) See the
Elle runway report.

Winter Makeup Tip

My best tip to glam up for the holiday season this year is to layer color on color on your lips—use Playon™ lip crayon to give that just kissed smudgy texture.

If you love red lips try the Playon™ Crayon in Hot or Naughty and add red sparkle lip gloss or even layer on top of the  charming pink Crayon. Or go very glam and pick your favorite and add the gold to silver sparkle gloss to take it into evening.

In case you missed it:
“Besides my signature book, I have new products available and it will soon be gift giving season—buy them for you or your mom or friends for upcoming special days—Birthdays, Christmas, Saturday...”


This palette of artisan-made glass is perfect for any of your liquid or cream products. “I designed it so you can stop using the back of your hand.” It's elegant (a deep wine-color) has corner tabs to stay put, and is ideal for all your creams and liquids, plus offers the most sanitary way to use product. Put it straight on the palette—no fingers. Keep the palette clean with a tissue.

Order: $25 each or 2 for $45

Makeup Brush
The Mini-Signature Makeup Brush is my favorite and my client's! It's perfect to touch up your foundation, blush, or bronzer. Or order the set of 7 and I'll include the Mini-Signature Brush!

The Mini-Signature is $23 each or 2 for $42 or $56 for 3.

I have to say it--for some reason, all of my current products are perfect gifts or stocking stuffers for the women on your list. Be ready for the holiday season (in more ways than one) and give me a call!

Also drop in or contact me to order the newest from Jane Iredale for the holiday season. Some of my client's favorites, including the Playon Crayons and Lip Fixations (the perfect combo!) are featured in here.

Also new for Christmas is Champagne on Ice, a set of sparkling mini glosses in flattering, sheer shades from Jane Iredale. Order through Deborah@
