Anti aging makeup ‘tricks ‘ help us look years younger and olive oil’s skin care secrets… ageless!
As a seasoned makeup artist I focus special attention on the eye and lip area since these age faster than other areas of the face. Larger lips and an open eye look give you a youthful appearance and are achieved with artistry tricks. Makeup techniques take years off your appearance and these tips can be easily taught so you can duplicate the look whenever you desire.
A primary step for good skin care each week is exfoliation, this will help your skin look younger immediately and absolutely radiant after makeup application.
Like the famous Italian actress Sophia Loren, I use olive oil for skin care. Sophia Loren at 76 is still considered one of the most beautiful woman in the world. Olive oil is an ancient Roman beauty secret and one I’ve suggested to my clients for many years. Also, Jeanne Calment, who holds the record for the longest confirmed lifespan, reportedly attributed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance to olive oil of which it’s said she poured on her food and rubbed into her skin. Try a dab of organic extra virgin olive oil ( first cold pressed ) several times a week on your face and as a total body moisturizer.
Olive oil, or ‘Liquid Gold’ has been used throughout the Mediterranean for thousands of years as both a health and beauty aid. This precious oil has been treasured as a beauty aid because it protects, tones and moisturizes the skin. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are easily absorbed and water soluble so it won’t clog pores. Premium olive oil actually ‘feeds’ your skin to make it firmer, truly anti-aging. Scientifically it’s proven olive oil is a natural anti-inflammatory agent for total body health. As we age the inflammatory response is higher making olive oil benefits of greater value.
If you or a loved one suffer from an autoimmune disease like ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis,’ read the benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet @ www.rheumatoidarthritissupport.blogspot.com
Directions as a moisturizer for the face: Warm a tiny amount in your hands, pat in gently and not too close to eyes,(makes them cloudy) allow to absorb for about 8 -10 minutes, then pat off excess with a soft cloth and proceed with your usual beauty routine. It’s natural, healthy, and gives you a youthful glow!

Spring and Summer Makeup for Wedding’s and All Occasion’s is prettier than ever. After years of telling women to choose between strong eyes and strong lips, both can be strong. This actually helps balance out the trends of the black and white power suits, floaty nightgown dresses or white eyelet sheaths. How wonderful to actually have options, we can ‘flirt with glamour’ this season….which is exactly what us girls love to do.
Brows are strong this year….so don’t over tweeze…. just keep them groomed and arched, add highlighter to the brow bone….. it adds glam to the entire eye area. For us mature girls it gives us an instant eye ‘lift’ …. a makeup trick for younger looking eyes.
While the hottest runway looks involve wearing a fiery orange red lip most of us aren’t even close to looking like Audrey Hepburn or Ava Gardner; so it’s best to go with a strong matte lipstick in peach or pink. ( lipstick, not lip gloss). The key to great looking lips is a a lipstick that’s satiny, a silky look that’s not too dewy and not too matte — add a light foundation, triple coat those lashes with black mascara or false ‘demi’ lashes … and darling, your … ‘Good To Go!”

The best makeup tip for photography is perfectly matched foundation to your skin tone. It’s a science to match foundation and individualize it to your ‘unique’ coloring and skin type. It’s necessary to ‘color code’ you in natural light using 3 or 4 shade stripes at the chin line. Once they dry the shade that disappears without demarcation is the one for you! Donna has normal skin tone variations, so with a few corrections and concealer in all the right places her skin tone was balanced and flawless …..’camera’ ready for her photography.
