Makeup Tips for your Thirties

Girl copy

1.     Getting Even – Dark splotches and spots start appearing in your thirties.  Use a full coverage foundation to even out skin tone.  Try Gabriel Moisturizing Liquid Foundation $28.00 or ZuZu Luxe Oil Free Liquid Foundation $29.75.

2.    Creating Bone Structure – As we age our skin loses its firmness and elasticity, which means saggy skin.  The best way to combat this is adding a Bronzer to your arsenal.  Sweep bronzer under each cheek bone, jaw line, sides of nose, and hairline to define face.  Try our ZuZu Luxe Bronzer $28.30.

3.    Perky Eyes – Life can be exhausting and we don’t want our delicate eye area to suffer.  To hide dark circles find a concealer that matches your foundation.  If you choose a concealer that is too light you will end up highlighting those areas.  Try our concealers in both Gabriel Color $15.20 and ZuZu Luxe $16.70.

4.    Open Eye – Highlighting your brow bone with a lighter shade for light skin tones, or bronze shade for dark skin tone, will make eye area appear more open.  Try Bone (light) or Sable (dark) eye shadow in Gabriel Color $13.55 or Platinum (light) and Eternity (dark) in ZuZu Luxe $15.25.

Makeup Highlighting Tips

 

 

What tips do you have for highlighting and defining brow and cheek bones? Use Gabriel Bone eye shadow or ZuZu Luxe Platinum eye show to highlight and define brow bone. Tip: Use Uber or Hope lipstick on top of brow highlighter, because of the silver shimmer when the light hits it that area will be highlighted. For cheek bones contour with blush just below the cheek bones.

How do you maintain a ‘bronzed’ look, but don’t over do it for the winter time? Only apply where the sun would naturally hit the skin; bridge of nose, cheeks, hairline and jaw line. We suggest our bronzers in either D-28 or D-32. If a bronzer with no shimmer is desired you can use Gabriel Dual Powder Deep Beige for a more matte look.
