if you follow my YouTube channel then today’s news comes as no surprise. and many of you noticed i was on the television show The View several weeks ago. yes, i am thrilled to announce that i’m partnering with L’Oreal Paris for the next nine months as an ambassador for their new line Age Perfect Makeup designed specifically for mature women and mature skin. but i have a feeling women of all ages will love Age Perfect Makeup. if you’re interested L’Oreal has an Age Perfect skin care line too.
what’s so special about Age Perfect Makeup? it’s formulated with vitamins, minerals, and serums that keep our skin hydrated and luminous. women’s skin tends to get drier as we age and loses its natural vitality. now we can put together a flawless look with moisturizing formulas and lightweight coverage that evens skin tones and doesn’t settle into lines. love, love, love that this makeup line is infused with skincare. the Age Perfect line includes all the necessities for a full face: complexion, lips, eyes, and brows.
armed with a bare face i started with the Radiant Serum Foundation with SPF 50. this lightweight foundation glides on seamlessly. it’s loaded with skin-nourishing ingredients like vitamin B3. i used Radiant Serum Foundation in beige rose 30 that feels as if i’m wearing nothing at all. yet the formula looks supple and leaves my skin with a glow. my kind of foundation. and it doesn’t settle into fine lines. less is more as we just want to even out skin tone so blend, blend, blend.
next, i applied the Radiant Concealer with Hydrating Serum under my eyes and pinpointed any pigmentation or blemishes that needed extra coverage. choose a concealer shade that matches your complexion. i used nude beige 210.
this is the template i used as a guide for The View. the eyes were a soft almond shape smoky eye perfect for an evening out. it’s a soft but glam look that’s easy to put together. i’m not a makeup artist but i achieved the look.
for the eyes, L’Oreal La Palette Nude was used to create a soft smoky eye. the pearl shade was used under the brow bone and inner corner of the eyes. the soft taupe shade was used on the upper lid. and the darker brown as the defining shade in the outer corner of the eye. make sure all edges are blended to create a soft but glam look.
using the brow brush on The Age Perfect L’Oreal Brow Magnifying Pencil with Vitamin E i gently brush my brow hairs upward. then i use the tip of the pencil to fill in the brow with feather-like strokes. make sure the brows don’t look heavy so use the brow brush to blend. i like my brows to look full but natural. i use my natural brow shape as a guide. i’m using L’Oreal Brow Magnifying Pencil with Vitamin E in soft brown.
to add definition to the eyes use the black shade of L’Oreal Age Perfect Satin Glide Eyeliner with Mineral Pigments. push the eyeliner into the upper lash line to fill in the root of the lashes. the formula is waterproof so it stays put. no smudges. next comes lashes with Age Perfect Lash Magnifying Mascara with Conditioning Serum. first, i curl my lashes with an eyelash curler. then i apply a generous coat of mascara starting at the root. apply two coats or until you get the desired effect of full alluring lashes.
now it’s on to blush. using the shade 415 Peony L’Oreal Age Perfect Radian Satin Blush. the creamy formula is made with camellia oil for a luminous glow. use a blusher brush to apply the blush to the apple of the cheeks, blending up.
the lips are lined with an Anti-Feathering Lip Liner in 20 Flamingo Carmin following my natural lip line. then i apply Age Perfect Luminous Hydrating Lipstick in the matching shade 110 Flamingo Carmin. hydrating lipstick is a non-negotiable for me so i was pleased with how supple my lips felt.
