Make the Most of Your 30s
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 1: Tinted moisturizer or liquid foundation |
if you're free of blemishes and discoloration, chances are you still need only a tinted moisturizer to appear fresh-faced. If you do require more coverage, opt for something light, like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup SPF 20 ($12; at drugstores).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 2: Liquid concealer|
This formula spreads easily and completely hides dark circles and blemishes. Try Shiseido Natural Finish Cream Concealer ($25; sca.shiseido.com for stores).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 3: Powder blush |
Stay away from anything with shimmer, which can settle into and draw attention to fine lines. A good bet: Revlon Powder Blush in Wine With Everything ($10; at drugstores).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 4: Eye shadow|
You can pick colors that complement or contrast with your irises. The only no-no? Wearing a lot of lip and eye makeup at the same time. Givenchy Le Prisme Eyeshadow Quads in Midnight Look and Purple Show ($56 each; givenchybeauty.com) offer options.
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 5: Black mascara|
It opens your eyes and makes you look awake," says celebrity makeup artist Edna De Jesus. Try Lancôme Définicils Precious Cells Mascara in Black ($29; lancome.com). Before applying, crimp lashes with a curler, like the Sephora Collection Eyelash Curler ($16; sephora.com).
|Celebrity Makeup Artist Favorite 6: Lipstick|
"Opt for creamy colors," says Nick Barose, a celebrity makeup artist in New York City. Dior Addict Lipcolor in Coral Lace and Pink Embroidery ($26 each; sephora.com) are top picks.
Warning from a celebrity makeup artist: Don't even think about using sparkly lip gloss
"Glittery stuff on your lips can appear garish," says De Jesus. "Even Angelina Jolie, who can pull off any trend, keeps her look sophisticated with a nude-toned lipstick."
