Make the Most of Your 20s
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 1: Tinted moisturizer |
Flaunt your youthful, glowing complexion with a tinted face cream or a lightweight foundation, says Edna De Jesus, a celebrity makeup artist for the Today show.
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 2: Treatment concealer|
To cover a blemish, opt for a medicated camouflage cream, such as Clinique Acne Solutions Clearing Concealer ($14; clinique.com).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 3: Blush or bronzer|
A pop of color will play up your radiance. Go bronze if you have golden undertones; opt for pink if you're paler. We like The Body Shop Autumn Trend Compact in Berry ($21; bodyshop.com).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 4: Mascara |
You can get away with black or colored mascara (some bright tones make older eyes look sleepy). Our top pick: Too Faced Lashgasm Mascara in Black ($21; toofaced.com).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 5: Brow brush|
Overeager brow plucking can leave you with permanently bald patches. Instead, swipe hairs in place with a brow brush, like the Aveda Flax Sticks Brow & Lash Brush ($17; aveda.com for stores), dipped in a tiny drop of petroleum jelly, suggests Mario Dedivanovic, a celebrity makeup artist in L.A.
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 6: Lip gloss |
A little gloss enhances dewy skin and lends polish to your look. Go for Chanel Glossimer in Petit Peche ($27; chanel.com).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 7: Oil blotter |
Sebum-absorbing sheets, like Tatcha Aburatorigami Japanese Beauty Papers ($12; tatcha.com), are perfect for pre-date touch-ups.
Warning from a celebrity makeup artist: Don't even think about using thick foundation
"Since your skin is already close to flawless, a cakey base can look heavy and age you," says Mathew Nigara, a celebrity makeup artist for N.Y.C. New York Color Cosmetics.
