You're Never To Old To Shine!

Bookmark and Share Posted on 01/23/2012

At least that's makeup artist Jemma Kidd's mantra and we couldn't agree more. There used to be an old wive's tale years go that once you hit a certain age you shouldn't wear makeup that contained sparkle, especially around the eye area, as it made you appear older. However, those are also the days were "sparkle particles or mica" were so big and made eyes look crepe-y. With formulations adapting as well as a change in outlook, the opportunity to have your makeup shine has never been better, no matter what age. In fact, we could all use a bit more of it in our routine.

"Shimmers reflect light and instantly brighten the eye. Select a neutral shade for a simple day look or pump up the nighttime drama with a bright shimmering shade," says makeup artist Pat McGrath. Jane Fonda, Sophia Loren, Helen Mirren and more are all beautiful women of a mature age who aren't afraid to add a litte sparkle and shine to enhace their beauty. 50 and over and want to add a little radiance to your makeup routine? These Jemma Kidd products that will do it minimally, yet efficiently are: For Eyes: Jemma Kidd's I-ris Enhancers. For Skin: Jemma Kidd's Dewy All Over Radiance. For Lips: Jemma Kidd's Hi-Shine Lip Gloss.

«Sigourney Weaver Wears Patyka at Sundance Premiere! -

I loved her in the Aliens trilogy and Gorillas In The Mist and now I love her even more for her taste in skincare. Sigourney Weaver prepped her skin for the film premiere of "Red Lights" at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival using french luxury skincare range, Patyka! Brand representative Nick Barose used an assortment of products to ensure Sigourney's skin glowed and radiated for all the paparazzi by, "prepping her skin with Patyka Huile Absolue Face & Body Serum to add hydration to the skin before applying liquid foundation." The climate at Sundance can be very harsh and drying, especially when makeup is put over it so a bit of maintenance was needed to make sure her skin stayed hydrated.

"For under eyes, prep with Patyka's Biokaliftin Radiant Eye Contour which adds hydration so your concealer won't crease. To keep the rest of the body glowing in cold weather, I gently massaged Patyka's Precious Wood Body Oil, which will add hydration and leave skin radiant."
