It can be a bit of a black hole trying to sort through all the anti-aging beauty products on the market. That’s why we look to the all-knowing Jonell Copeland, the editor of the Ageist Beauty, a blog that focuses on dishing out beauty advice to ladies aged 35-50. This week, she’s giving us all the deets on her holiday season musts!
For some, endless holiday parties are an excuse to pull out the heavy duty, “special occasion” makeup. The truth is, caking on the makeup can be very aging. Instead of trying to cover things up with a mask of product, highlight your best features. Here are some of our favorite products that will have fellow revelers taking notice of your glow.
bareMinerals Ready™ Luminizerproprietary skin-nourishing SeaNutritive Mineral™ Complex. Pair this luminizer with contouring powder for effortless glam.
Stila All Over Shimmer Liquid Luminizer Try-Me-Set ($20)
Chose your weapon—this kit includes three different highlighter shades: pink shimmer, rose gold shimmer, and bronze shimmer. The brush applicator makes for mess-proof and targeted application. You can apply a quick swipe below your brow bone, a dab only where needed to camouflage fine lines, or mix with your tinted moisturizer for fresh, youthful skin.
NARS Illuminator ($30)
Combined with your favorite tinted moisturizer or BB cream, or just worn alone, this makeup bag staple instantly adds a beachy glow to your look.
RMS Beauty Uncover Up ($36)
During a sit-down with the beauty director and associate beauty editor of Allure, they told me that this is one of their hands-down favorites. We love it too! It’s an all-natural, multi-tasking concealer that can also be used as a light foundation.
