After 30 years within poker the business, make-up artist Anna Durston (50) is aware of a factor or two about find out how to make ladies appear and feel 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 finished quite a few editorial and industrial shoots, and over time our paths have crossed many occasions. I’ve at all times appreciated her constructive strategy in the direction of the ageing course of and her requires better inclusivity within the business.
Anna strongly believes that magnificence and age go hand-in-hand. She urges ladies to take time for themselves, spend time researching the correct merchandise and to ask for assist or recommendation when it’s wanted. Right here she shares find out how to create a lightweight, understated make-up search for summer time:
Strive a less-products-is-more strategy in the summertime months – so there’s much less likelihood of make-up shifting or sweating off. I often prep summer time pores and skin with La 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 obligatory. I like to recommend a tinted moisturiser to even-out discolouration and create a pure end. Nars Tinted Moisturiser is a good all-rounder. The Max Factor Tinted Moisturiser can be simple to placed on and the value is sensible (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, preserve eyeliner to a positive line and near the lashes to minimise smudging. I exploit Hourglass Mascara so as to add quantity, elevate and separation, creating the impact of fuller wanting lashes. I at all times fill out my brows with Wunderbrow Gel – outlined eyebrows actually elevate your face – it makes such a distinction.
The glow you get with a cream blush in summer time is gorgeous. I like utilizing NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Mousse. Creamy formulations work brilliantly on mature pores and skin as a result of they don’t settle into strains like many powders do. As a remaining contact, I evenly mud my face with Beauty Pie One Powder Wonder. 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 fee the Kefir Tea Mist from Elemis which has a beautiful 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 simple 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 huge followers of Burt’s Bees.
