Kevyn Aucoin's Loose Shimmering Powder is out of this world. With an easy to use rollerball head, applying eyeshadow is as easy as a quick coloring session, which also limits the amount of fall out particles that usually drop down on cheekbones. All of the colors are gem shades of Jade (green), Lapis (purple) and more! My favorite aspect about these shadows is the iridescence and illumination they give to the eye area as shown perfectly in the example below. The shade is Lapis by the way, my personal fav! The rollerball application also allows you to brilliantly build up color from a subtle wash of color to a bolder pop.

Not only is the skin your body’s largest organ – it is an external organ that can demonstrate your age. The effects of aging will always take a toll on your skin, but your habits can dictate the speed of its deterioration. By taking good care of your skin with healthy habits and products like RODIN olio lusso, you can prolong the aging process.
Dryness. As you age, your skin gets drier because your body slowly loses the ability to naturally create moisturizing oils.
Thinning. As the skin loses the fatty layer below the epidermis, it becomes thinner. The slower regeneration of skin cells as you age can also cause thinning. Sun exposure speeds up the thinning process and breaks down the collagen and elastin in your skin.
Sagging. Gravity paired with altered hormone levels and decreased levels of skin fat, elastin and collagen will make your skin sag. Taking care your skin now with healthy habits and a comprehensive skin care routine can help delay sagging.
Age spots. Simply put, age spots (or liver spots) are sun spots. Your body creates them in response to sun exposure to protect the deeper layers of your skin. Prevent their appearance by always wearing a moisturizer with an SPF component and by staying out of the sun.
Wrinkles. In your 30s and 40s, you start to develop wrinkles because of a lifetime of muscle and skin movements. In your 50s, your wrinkles can become more prominent as your skin starts to sag. Smoking and sun exposure speed up the development of wrinkles.
