SKIN CARE

101 by Maria Anderson, for The Bulletin

Q: Winter has really dried out my skin. What is something I can do to help out in this climate? A: First off, make sure you are constantly hydrating yourself inside and out. Next, switch from using hot water to a lukewarm or cool water when washing your face. Check that your cleanser is of a mild nature. And always protect your face, even when it’s raining outside. Sunscreen and moisturizer is an absolute must!

Q: What are some other options out there for me if I really only love my liquid foundation, because the powder cakes my face? A: Fortunately these days, makeup companies have come out with mineral everything, and for the most part they all have great coverage. If you just can’t give up your liquid, at least try a cream. It’s like mixing lotion and makeup, but it will stay. I personally really like using a cream concealer followed with a mineral base. Use a cream blush, and even a cream eye shadow. If you really don’t want any makeup to go anywhere, lock in with a powder, mineral or not. tIp: Cream also is a better choice, and it blends so much better if you are applying over loose skin.


Q: I love the smoky look on my eyes. Should I wear it differently in the daytime? A: Smoky is a great look for daytime, just lighten it up a lot by forgoing your eyeliner. Use a charcoal or brown shade of eyeshadow, and start at your lid and work up to the crease. If you really need your eyeliner, match it with your eyeshadow shade. Apply shadow over the eyeliner, and blend up to the crease.

Q: I’m a very busy lady running all day and usually have an evening event to attend. How can I update my makeup from a day to night look? A: We were talking about smoky “daytime” eye in the last question. From there, a great way to move this look into evening time is to add the black liner and add a darker shade of charcoal eyeshadow. If you need a brighter lip color, use a tint of color and top it with a neutral gloss. As for your cheeks, pop them with a great cream color. You can change your hair up or down and bring a different pair of earrings. the oil blotting sheets are amazing to have on hand so you are not applying and reapplying powder all day.

Beauty Tips

101 by Maria Anderson, for The Bulletin

Q: I’m excited to try out new spring and summer makeup trends, and am interested in sheer makeups? What should I look for regarding coverage and such?

A: Even though the look for the season is natural and sheer, sometimes you’ll want more coverage. Look for mineral cream to powder, sheer foundation or loose mineral powder. Match your skin shade and avoid getting darker shades. Finding what feels best on your skin is key. A powder mineral makeup, for instance, is a good choice for oily skin.

Q: How do I best combine blush, full eye makeup and lip color all together? A: You can wear them all together, but try these tips for a fresh look. Cream blushes are amazing to play with. Stick with a peach, pink or beige tone to keep it natural. For a younger look, apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks. As for eyes, opt for neutral tones and/or beige to keep it simple. Feel free to skip on the eyeliner and just wear one coat of mascara to keep your look natural. When it comes to lips, clear and natural lip tone colors are great for daytime wear.

Q: Is there a better way to achieve longer wear for my makeup? A: Most professional makeup lines offer a base makeup called primer that you apply after moisturizer and before concealer and sunscreen. It helps keep foundation and makeup on longer. It will also help to smoothly spread your makeup on as well. Also, after applying foundation, use a translucent powder to set your makeup. Remember to always apply cream makeup before powder.


Q: With summer on its way, I would love to have clearer skin. What can I do? A: First, what you put in your body makes a big difference. Lots of healthy fruits and veggies are great for skin, as well as good for hydration. From the outside, use a lotion that contains collagen which moisturizes and promotes healthy skin. Some even contain necessary sunscreen. If you are prone to oily skin, make sure you are cleansing your face, neck, back and arms — all the places we love clear skin. If you are having issues with pimples from shaving or waxing, you can definitely use a loofah to exfoliate your skin. If none of these work or your skin case is more severe, consult a dermatologist. Ask around for referrals, and research what people are saying about their experiences with visits, solutions, remedies and products. Also, when you shower, wash your hair and body first and your face last.

The oils from your hair and shampoo can have an aging effect on your facial skin. Also a great solution for “blah” skin needing rejuvenation and youth is a milk treatment. Dip your washcloth in milk and apply to your face for five minutes, then rinse. Any time you do this, your face will love you.

Q: I cover my face when tanning. To even out my face, do I want to use a darker shade foundation or bronzer? A: If you are tanning with methods other than spray tans, you are risking too many things. Always wear sunscreen, hats and swim cover ups. It will be worth it in your later years to have protected your skin in lieu of a tan. But in all honesty, we are human and love the sun. So if you can’t part with the tanning bed, I would match your foundation shade carefully to avoid looking “fake.”
