Beauty trends take a significant turn this year. What was once an obsession, now makes us cringe. I’m talking about dramatic lashes that could pick you up and fly you away, highlighter that’s brighter than the sun and well, we can’t forget about overdrawn brows. This year however, it’s all about simplicity and we are all for it!
Fluffy brows and natural, dewy looking skin are the go-to this season; a combination that will make you feel 10 years younger.
Fluffy brows provide a subtle face lift as you are forcing your brow hairs to remain upwards, in turn, lifting your face (try the Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Freeze for this).
Natural and dewy looking skin underemphasises fine lines and wrinkles. Pair this look with a deep lip colour if you feel like showing off your adventurous side.
20s to 30s:
It’s still possible to even out your skin tone, hide blemishes and boost your skins appearance using a little bit of foundation; however, if you have some blemishes you would like to cover even more, use only a touch of concealer to do this. Dampen your brush or sponge using some water before applying liquid or cream products, this will help loosen up the texture and allow for a more airbrushed finish. Try the Too Faced Dew You Foundation – it’s magic in a bottle.
30s to 40s:
If hydrating sprays are not part of your makeup routine – you are missing out! Try the Mario Badescu Facial Sprays before, during and after your makeup application to help hydrate your skin. For an added benefit, spritz your foundation brush with some spray before applying your cream or liquid foundation, this will allow the foundation to sit on your skin so much better. You can use the same technique for cream or liquid bronzer too.
Avoid full coverage foundations as these tend to emphasise fine lines and wrinkles. Instead try a lighter coverage foundation such as the Clarins Everlasting Youth Fluid Foundation – this is a favourite of ours! Apply a pea-sized amount or two to a foundation brush and gently blend it into your face (never use your hands to blend in foundation). For an added dewy effect, combine some foundation with your favourite moisturiser before applying it on your skin.
