And with out further ado... Here they are!
1. ACHIEVE COMPLEXION-PERFECTION (crease-free!)
Because skin tends to lose moisture and wrinkle as we age, you don't want to use too much powder on aging skin. For a younger look, begin by mixing a primer created for mature skin with an anti-aging foundation - This will sheer it out a bit so it doesn't settle into fine lines. Then, lightly powder your t-zone with a large brush to set the makeup. Jean-Michelle Claire Teint Anti-Age Liquid Makeup creates an even, luminous complexion in seconds... Our skin-perfecting formula contains antioxidant Vitamin E to protect your skin, while Panthenol helps diminish the look of wrinkles by infusing serious moisture into the deepest layers of your skin for a youthful, plumping effect. Top that!
2. KEEP IT SIMPLE
Choose a feature to spotlight - either eyes or lips, but not both. If you're experimenting with a red lip, a little undereye concealer and mascara should be enough for the eyes. If it's a sexy, smoky eye you're going for, pair it with a subdued, neutral lip that has just a touch of color. I like Sara St. James Easy Color Lipstick in Sugar & Spice.
3. BANISH DROOPY-LOOKING EYES
Diandra Eye Crayon in Barely Black - It's dark enough to add much-needed definition, while still creating a diffused, youthful look.
4. GIVE YOUR FACE A LIFT - NO SURGERY NEEDED!
Well-shaped, defined brows are very important - but be sure they're not too harsh. Brows should be just strong enough to create a frame for the eye. A nice, translucent face powder applied with a small angled brush imparts a defined, yet natural look. Jean-Michelle Satine Translucent Powders create soft, face framing arches! Redheads - try Mahogany, Light Blondes - Golden Sable. Dark Blonde to Brunette - Caramel. If you feel like you're really in between, try blending your own perfect shade! MAJOR BONUS - It can also be used to contour and bronze the face, neck and decolletage.
5. PUCKER UP
Madeleine Mono Viva Diva Duo Lipliner has a neutral warm shade on one end, and a neutral cool shade on the other. One of these two shades should work well with any lip color you choose to wear.
