Make Over Makeup
Move Over Drab
Fall colors and hues are right around the corner and the end of summer is almost here *sigh* but your makeup is in desperate need of a makeover. The best way to get over the end of summer blues…buy a bottle of wine or two, call up some of your buddies and go from drab to glam.
Remember, putting on makeup is supposed to be fun and relaxing with the end result being a beautiful and more radiant you (only on the outside because we all know how wonderful you are on the inside!)
Start with the basics: a good primer to prep the face for your foundation, moisturizer to keep the skin glowing, and maybe some Retinol based product to firm everything up (should you need it, of course, we all wish our skin was still in its 20’s).
Quick tips to make your makeup routine flawless, fast, and FUN:
1) Always use a good moisturizer and/or primer before applying any concealer or foundation. This will actually prevent the overuse of products and make the application itself much more natural looking.

2) Using a mosaic powder is a quick and easy way to brighten up any complexion and can be reapplied throughout the day to freshen up without getting cakey on the skin.
3) Remember, color is great to play with, but in the right way. If you create a bold eye shadow look, play it down on the bright lipstick and vice versa. You’re making a beauty statement one way or the other, but with both being too bright, you’re making a beauty faux pas.
4) Replace your mascara every 3 months (if used daily). Mascara has a notoriously short life span, tending to dry out and clump after just a few weeks. By using fresh mascara, you can be guaranteed an effortless application and no mid-day flaking. Also…skip the bottom lashes. It can be aging on any eye.
