I may or may not admit that my sons and nieces may ask me if I am trying to look like a teenager again when it comes to the clothes I wear, my hairstyle or my makeup of choice. I can’t help it if I have a color blocking shirt that I wore in 12th grade that still fits me and totally fits in with this trend. Who cares if it’s 20 years old…it looks like I just bought it yesterday.
But I digress.
If you are inching closer to 40 like me, or just wonder in general about beauty for any age, here are 3 makeup tips from celebrity makeup artist and founder of Mally Beauty, Mally Roncal:
Shimmer: Shimmer shouldn’t be too thick at any age. Instead, opt for a fine shimmer that just adds a touch of light. Apply it to your brow bone, cheekbones and down the center of the nose. Try Mally Beauty Shimmer, Shape and Glow Face Defining System.
Pink Cheeks: Pink cheeks work on ALL ages – I even encourage women in their 60’s and 70’s to wear bright color on their cheeks. It brightens up the skin so you can be radiant all day long. Try Mally Beauty 24/7 Illuminating Blush.
Red Lips: No matter how old or young you are, a red lip is a classic and fool proof way to complete your look. If you are in your 20’s, opt for a brighter more orange based red. Work a true, bold red if you are in your 40’s. Try Mally Beauty Red Lip Kit.
Personally, I have not tried the red lip tip. I haven’t yet found a red that complements my skin tone. It’s on my wishlist of beauty do’s. One day…
