Today’s highly evolved makeup formulations are far superior to those from the past. If you’ve worn the same foundation, concealer or under makeup moisturizer for eons it may be time to rethink what’s in your makeup bag. I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite skin correcting products that are sure to perk up your appearance.
RETEXTURIZING FACE PRIMER
My number one favorite prep product. This silky, smooth little treasure instantly softens lines and wrinkles. Apply just before foundation and think, “fountain of youth”. I carry mine with me to reapply it under my eyes and above my upper lip at around 3:00 PM when I glance in the mirror and stifle a gasp. All of a sudden everything smoothes out and I emit a soft sigh of relief.
Your old foundation may not be able to keep up. This new formula refracts light to keep keep skin looking youthful, smooth and moist. This way you can avoid foundation that accentuates lines and uneven texture. And, if you follow it with a quick buffing using a Stipple Brush, your makeup becomes one with your skin.
At any age concealers are a must to lighten and conceal imperfections. But, is your current concealer a little too heavy or cakey? Newer versions of this canvas perfecting product are silky smooth and work as a treatment for that delicate under eye area. This medium coverage product contains brighteners to diminish dark circles and gives skin a natural, long lasting finish.
Perfect for the minimalist. It’s like a line smoothing primer and light natural coverage foundation all in one. This multipurpose product retexturizes, refines, smoothes, hydrates, plumps and soothes. (Sorry, it doesn’t do dishes.) Wear it alone or under foundation to provide a subtle fresh finish.
This “color correcting” product is perfect for hiding redness without looking like your wearing a masque. Great for rosacea prone skin. It can be worn alone (similar to tinted moisturizer) or as a spot treatment under foundation. It also minimizes pigmentation, contains brighteners and has an SPF of 20. Its really cool how it goes on white and within seconds adjusts to your natural skin color. Maybe it’s time to toss that green paste.
This ultimate multi-tasker is incredibly lightweight and oil-free. It combats shine in multiple ways: Immediately, the Dermat Complex™ absorbs oil and reduces pore size. While you wear it, Salicylic Acid levels out roughness and keeps foundation looking smooth. Over time, this hi-tech primer keeps on working to control oil even after you take it off. The best part is, it doesn’t dehydrate your skin the way older formula “mattifying gels” do.
If your plagued by eye shadow that’s caking and creasing during the day you’ll love this sheer, all day eyelid mattifier. It prepares your lids for a perfect fixation of eye shadows and visibly extends the duration of your eye make-up. The sheer formula and light silicone texture smoothes your eyelids to fill in wrinkles and minimize their visibility. Plus, it’s oil free.
Botanical Shadow Primer. Some skins need coverage along with crease prevention. This shadow primer hides eyelid pigmentation and camouflages those annoying little red capillaries that make you appear sleep deprived. Primers of the past, made to conceal these imperfections, were often too heavy and “glunkie” which made your shadow appear harsh. Botanical Shadow Primer is soft, silky, lightweight and offers great coverage.
Okay, you like the idea of corralling your lipstick to stay in place where its supposed to be. But, all day lipstick is just too drying. Regular lip liners are more than you bargained for. You just don’t like that visible line around your lips. In steps Invisible Lip Liner. It goes on clear, keeps lipstick in place and naturally extends the wear of your favorite lip color. All without a harsh dry line.
More subtle than traditional highlighters, sheerer than your old concealer. This product makes skin look visibly younger using photo-reflective pigments that enliven skin and hide imperfections. Bio-transformed Botanical Complex gently relaxes muscles, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines. Multi-Mineral antioxidants gently protect and condition skin. Apply onto bare skin or over makeup and blend with fingertips for instant radiance. Try highlighting cheekbones by sweeping above the cheeks and blending outwards towards the temples. You’ll find the perfect combination of treatment and makeup in one sweet state-of the-art formula.
