Summer makeup

Summer makeup
Summer makeup should definitely feel and look lighter on your face. I take an equal interest in makeup as I do in fashionable clothes. I worked for Clinique and Lancome in my 20's and 30's and loved all the training I got. They used to call training "school." It was always at the Four Seasons and included lunch and a gift bag full of cosmetics. It was so much fun! Working as a makeup artist was particularly satisfying. Especially when you would see the "after" look of a very happy woman.  May I suggest that you put your foundation away for the summer and use eye concealer and a bronzer on your cheeks instead. Eye makeup is still very important especially for us 40 and 50+ ladies. Our eyes have really changed their shape. Eye lashes have thinned out as well and I love Lancome's Hypnose mascara. It thickens and lengthens giving you a "baby doll" kind of look. If you choose to use a neutral or nude lipstick, definitely use a lip liner in a light brown or pinkish brown color. Make sure it blends with the lipstick as well. Eyes can be accentuated more when you wear pale lip colors. But, don't be afraid to wear red either. It is acceptable all year round especially at night. Hope these makeup tips are helpful.
