It is time for a makeup update! Have you been using the same makeup to create the same look since…..FOREVER? If your answer is yes, then it’s probably time for a “shake up”!
Over time, our skin tones change slightly due to age, sun damage, etc. Also, makeup formulation changes; for example, the concealer that Alison had trusted and used for years suddenly changed. The brand had added sunscreen, which altered the color and texture slightly. It was time to switch to a new concealer rather than continue to use one that wasn’t working for her anymore, but which to choose?
WE REACHED OUT TO SANDY LINTER, LEGENDARY MAKEUP ARTIST, FOR HELP!
Sandy explained that it’s a smart idea to update your makeup every once in a while. She walked us through how to create the look of a healthy glow, which is more important than ever as we age. We want to be careful to not wear too much makeup but wearing no makeup at all is not a great look either. The goal is to look radiant and natural, and Sandy helps Alison achieve this with products and easy-to-follow tips and advice!
GET THIS LOOK
We filmed the process with Sandy for The Style That Binds Us Show so that you can follow along and create this look for yourself as well! It’s perfect for a modern, casual but chic lifestyle. Sandy sent Alison a list of the products she wanted her to use, and we have included this list below, in case you want to purchase them too. You can use this tutorial for yourself- set your phone up where you put on your makeup in the morning, and you’ll be having a “personal” makeup lesson with Sandy Linter!
