First of all I would like to say that I had never felt so confortable in my own skin and happy with myself and the way I viewed myself ever so much before my thirties. Confidence comes from knowing who you are and that has always been beautiful to me.Happy inside equals happy outside for sure!! Although working on our spirituality within ourselves doesn't mean we should ever forget taking care of what we look like on the outside. It's not vanity it's telling the world that you have respect enough for yourself to take the time and pride in your appearance.
Here are a few Nicole Marie's tricks of the beauty trade to stay young and beautiful at any age. (part one)
1) Make sure you always moisturize!!!!
2) Pick the right concealer-it's a cruel irony: As you age, you have more to conceal, but concealer can draw attention to lines and crepiness. You want a product that hides redness and circles without getting cakey, and that means you want a liquid cover-up in a click pen."A click-pen formula covers just as well and doesn't seep into lines." The light reflectors inblur imperfections and give skin a luminous look.
3)More yellow based foundation-Not Big Bird yellow, just yellowish. "Yellow warms up the skin, And the warmer your skin looks, the younger it looks. End of story." This goes for Asian and black skin as well.
4)Translucent powder-I had recently just found out that this is the best kept secret out there!Covering your skin in powder can mean caked on fakeness!! Skip it. If you feel naked without powder, "use translucent, light-diffusing powder, nothing tinted, to set your base. This will set your blush, your bronzer, contouring, and leave you with perfection and no cake face!!!! And no shine!! You can just dust it on the tee-done if you get oily there like I do.
5)Show off those cheek bones!!! They are beautiful ladies!!!After years of smiling into a mirror to isolate the apples of your cheeks, you can now give it a rest. Women lose fat in their face as they age, take advantage of that! Rub your blush in along the highest points of your cheekbones—it makes your bone structure stand out.
That was part 1of my blog..."beauty at any age" I hope you enjoyed it and found it helpful. More where that came from!!
