After 30 years within the trade, make-up artist Anna Durston (50) is aware of a factor or two about easy methods to make ladies feel and appear their finest. She has labored with high-profile names akin to actress: Jenny Agutter, journalists Laura Kuenssburg and Tina Daheley, chef Monica Galetti and meals author and broadcaster Mary Berry. She has additionally executed quite a few editorial and business shoots, and through the years our paths have crossed many instances. I’ve at all times appreciated her optimistic method in direction of the ageing course of and her requires higher inclusivity within the trade.
Anna strongly believes that magnificence and age go hand-in-hand. She urges ladies to take time for themselves, spend time researching the proper merchandise and to ask for assist or recommendation when it’s wanted. Right here she shares easy methods to create a lightweight, understated make-up search for summer time:
Attempt a less-products-is-more method in the summertime months – so there’s much less probability of make-up shifting or sweating off. I often prep summer time pores and skin withLa Roche Posay’s Toleriane Moisturiser, which I put on with a high-factor SPF (for daytime). Utilizing lighter textures lets you construct them up as mandatory. I like to recommend a tinted moisturiser to even-out discolouration and create a pure end. Nars Tinted Moisturiseris a superb all-rounder. The Max Issue Tinted Moisturiser can be simple to placed on and the value is good (I exploit it on a regular basis on photoshoots). Then, add a contact of concealer right here and there, to masks any discolouration or age spots.
If it’s a extremely sizzling and sweaty day, hold eyeliner to a tremendous line and near the lashes to minimise smudging. I exploit Hourglass Mascara so as to add quantity, raise and separation, creating the impact of fuller trying lashes. I at all times fill out my brows with Wunderbrow Gel– outlined eyebrows actually raise your face – it makes such a distinction.
The glow you get with a cream blush in summer time is beautiful. I like utilizing NYX Candy Cheeks Blush Mousse. Creamy formulations work brilliantly on mature pores and skin as a result of they don’t settle into traces like many powders do. As a last contact, I evenly mud my face with Magnificence Pie One Powder Marvel. It’s a finely-milled, practically translucent powder, which takes away undesirable shine with out ‘mattifying’ the pores and skin an excessive amount of. It’s a improbable powder for older pores and skin as a result of it doesn’t really feel heavy or cake-y.
Refresh your pores and skin all through the day utilizing a pores and skin tonic or mist. I price the Kefir Tea Mist from Elemis which has a stunning mild perfume. Hold one in your bag for a fast spritz to nourish flushed pores and skin. To refresh your make-up, evenly mist throughout your face after which, gently use your ring finger to softly pat it round for added moisture and assist to even out your make-up once more.
On lips, a tinted balm will add moisture and a touch of color which is straightforward to top-up. I like a budget and cheerful Vaseline Rosy Tinted Lip Balm and at all times carry it with me – and I do know Staff TNMA are massive followers of Burt’s Bees.
