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 Q&A

What are the benefits of buying a 2-way foundation (or dual powder foundation) and what type of skin is best suited rather than a foundation and powder separately?

Our dual powder foundations are best suited for people with normal to oily skin because it is a powder formula vs. a liquid designed to absorb excess oil.  The benefits are that you get two products in one; a foundation to provide an even skin tone and base and a powder to control shine.   I would especially recommend for the woman on the go as it is in solid form vs. other mineral based powders that are loose and can’t get messy.

Powder Foundation tools:  When to use a brush, sponge, and fingers and why to achieve flawless skin.

Our dual powder foundations come with a sponge to achieve two looks; use wet for maximum coverage or dry for a soft velvety finish.  Our Powder Brush is also recommended for use throughout the day to prevent powder from appearing too cakey.  Make sure to wash the sponge at least once a wekk to prevent any type of skin breakouts.  I suggest using a cleanser to wash.  I wouldn’t recommend using your finger with a powder foundation, as it would not apply correctly.  I would only use fingers with a cream/liquid formula.
