Steal this: Jennifer Lopez's anti-ageing trick
Make-up is just make-up and skin care is just skin care, right? Wrong.
Thanks to our modern world and its wonderful inventions, many make-up products on the market today aren’t just about colour and coverage – they contain skin-loving ingredients, too. This is magnificent news for those concerned with ageing, because it means you can now tackle wrinkles while adding colour to your complexion at the same time.
We've no doubt that Jennifer Lopez is a smart lady and makes use of said skin care and make-up hybrid – how else does one look so sensational at 44? So, if you want to look both pretty and youthful at the same time, we suggest you steal J.Lo's anti-ageing trick and pack your make-up kit full of hard-working, complexion-adoring products, too.
HOW TO ACHIEVE JENNIFER LOPEZ’S ANTI-AGEING LOOK
Tip #1: Start with a skin-nurturing BB cream base
BB creams don’t just provide coverage; they treat your skin, too. Packed with ingredients to help boost hydration, cover imperfections, and provide UV protection, they'll not only make your skin look clearer and more uniform instantly, they'll continue to treat and nourish your skin throughout the day.
Try: Biodroga BB Cream Multi Talent, which helps combat skin fatigue and dehydration, even out your skin tone and improve the texture of the skin.
Tip #2: Add colour with a nourishing crème blush
Crème blush is an ageing complexion's best friend. Why? Its creamy formula won't sink into fine lines and wrinkles like powdered varieties tend to do, and it also add a lovely luminous glow – something that many mature skins lack. Use one that gives your skin a dose of hydrating ingredients as it adds a hit of complexion-lifting colour and you've got one winning product.
Try: Kit Cosmetics Duo Cheek And Lip Crème ($34.95, kitcostmetics.com.au), which delivers a sheer touch of colour and with the added skin benefits of jojoba oil, rose hip and green tea.
Tip #3: Give your lips some shine with a plumping gloss
As we age, our lips become drier and develop fine lines. Gloss alone will blur this imperfection, but many glosses on the market act like lip treatments, too. They contain hydrating ingredients to plump up fine lines and make the lip more defined, as well as collagen-boosters. The result is a softer, more youthful looking pout.
Try: Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Luminous Lip Gloss, which supports natural collagen product for smoother, firmer and more defined lips.
Tip #4: Protect your lashes with a strengthening mascara
Eyelashes are fragile, this we know. But as we get older, they become even weaker. Some mascaras can be drying and will make this issue worse, which is why it's wise to select one that nourishes and strengthens your lashes as it defines them. And with continued use, you should notice less breakage and brittleness.
Try: Australis Lash TLC Conditioning Mascara, which adds volume, length, and definition, while it conditions your lashes thanks to its nourishing vitamin B5 and E.
