Tips & Tricks to Applying Age-Defying Makeup in Under 15 Minutes
As a beauty expert and celebrity body parts model in Hollywood, I’ve picked up many great tips from top celebrity makeup artists. I’m often asked about my personal age-defying makeup regimen. Below, I’ve outlined my step-by-step instructions to help you achieve a natural dewy finish and camouflage minor imperfections.
In addition, you’ll be privy to the newest facial contouring trend used by celebrities aged 35 and up.
STEP 1: After cleansing, toning and moisturizing skin, apply an SPF 15 sun screen. TIP: Be sure to wait 60 seconds for moisturizer and sun screen to set before applying makeup.
STEP 2: Apply an illuminating concealer under the eyes. The benefits of illuminating concealer are it is sheer, it won’t settle in lines, and it brightens the eye area. Use a concealer brush to gently pat it under the eyes.
STEP 3: Camouflage dark circles, focusing on the inner eye area. To do this, you’ll need a regular concealer that offers more coverage than the illuminating concealer.
STEP 4: Using a kabuki, stippling or flat foundation brush, apply a sparing amount of powder mineral foundation on face. Using a foundation brush ensures easy blending and a light natural finish.
STEP 5: To achieve the ultimate facial contouring effect, apply the regular concealer (as noted in STEP 3) OVER foundation in the following areas:
From the corners of both eyes and extend down to the middle of each cheek in a U shape.
STEP 6: Now we’ll contour the face with bronzer. This helps define cheekbones and defines the jawline. It also helps slim the look of a double chin. Apply bronzer under the cheek bones, along the jaw line, and across the top of the forehead.
STEP 7: Apply peach or pink blush on the apples of the cheeks.
STEP 8: To create a fresh, open-eyed look, apply light beige eye shadow on the eye lids, and blend up to beneath each brow arch. Then apply peach or taupe-colored eye shadow on the eye creases and blend outward on the outer thirds of the lids to give a subtle, lifted look to the eyes.
STEP 9: No need to use translucent or setting powder, because it settles into lines, adding years to your age. What I love and highly recommend is Hyaluronic Hydrating Mist to help set makeup for the entire day! Amazing stuff!
STEP 10: Use a liner brush or one of the sponge-tipped applicators to apply black or dark brown liner on the outer third of both top and bottom lids.
STEP 11: Apply one coat of mascara on the top lashes. For more definition, apply a second coat of mascara on the outer third of the upper lashes only. To apply mascara on the bottom lashes, watch my “Evening Makeup for Gals 35+ video on YouTube.
STEP 12: Thicker eye brows are all the rage. And fuller brows look more youthful too. Using an eyebrow pencil that offers a fine tip, lightly draw small lines to create the look of real brow hair. To help thicken brow hair, check out RapidLash® at a great price on my website SHOP in the Eyes Section.
STEP 13: Finish the look with a natural gloss in peach or pink for a fresh, dewy look. Why do I suggest natural lip gloss? Just think about it, with every sip of a drip or food consumed, you also ingest what’s applied on your lips!
