Makeup Artist NC – Anti-Aging ‘Tricks Of The Trade’ – Olive Oil Secrets

Anti-aging makeup tricks can help us gals look years younger.

As a seasoned makeup artist I focus special attention on the eye and lip area since these age faster than other areas of the face.  Larger lips and an open eye look give you a youthful appearance and are achieved with artistry tricks.                          Makeup techniques take years off your appearance and these tips can be easily taught so you can duplicate the look whenever you desire.  

A primary step for good skin care each week is exfoliation, this will help your skin look younger immediately and absolutely radiant after makeup application.

Like the famous Italian actress Sophia Loren, I use olive oil for skin care.  Sophia Loren at 76  is still considered one of the most beautiful woman in the world.  Olive oil is an ancient  Roman beauty secret and one I’ve suggested to my clients for many years.   Also, Jeanne Calment, who holds the record for the longest confirmed lifespan, reportedly attributed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance to olive oil of  which it’s said she poured on her food and rubbed into her skin. Try a dab of organic extra virgin olive oil ( first cold pressed ) several times a week on your  face and as a total body moisturizer. 

Olive oil, or ‘Liquid Gold’ has been used throughout the Mediterranean for thousands of years as both a health and beauty aid.  This precious oil has been treasured as a beauty aid because it protects, tones and moisturizes the skin. Olive oil is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are easily absorbed and water soluble so it won’t clog pores. Premium olive oil actually ‘feeds’ your skin to make it firmer, truly  *anti-aging.  Scientifically it’s proven olive oil is a natural anti-inflammatory agent for total body health.  As we age the inflammatory response is higher making olive oil benefits of greater value.                                                                   

If you or a loved one suffer from an autoimmune disease like ‘Rheumatoid Arthritis,’ read the benefits of olive oil and the Mediterranean diet @  www.rheumatoidarthritissupport.blogspot.com     

Directions as a moisturizer for the face:  Warm a tiny amount in your hands, pat in gently and not too close to eyes,(makes them cloudy) allow to absorb for about 8 -10  minutes,  then pat off  excess with a soft cloth and proceed with your usual beauty routine. It’s natural, healthy, and gives you a youthful glow!  

 “You will love the skin your in!” 

*UPDATE – I switch back and forth now with organic COCONUT oil. I find it seems to be lighter and just as good or better for skin health and anti-aging.  You cannot go wrong with either one of these oils.  [Google search to discover why these oils are the best skin care products.]

Wedding

Spring  &  Summer Weddings  embrace a renewed interest in classic styling in dress, hair and makeup . Hollywood glamour of yesterday is back.   

This season, eyes go bolder with shades of color enhanced with triple coats of mascara or with false lashes expertly applied.

Lips are softly lined for fullness in colors complimentary to your skin tone and a touch of shimmery gloss to highlight bridal elegance.  Red lips are back for those 40′s and 50′s look. Try different shades of red until you find the perfect one …  you’ll know …  it will look  beautiful.

Spring and Summer makeup trends are both glamorous and elegant with soft colorful shades for eyes with a bolder lip for that ‘romantic flare’ of yesterday.  

  Your Bridal gown can be glamorously accented with Chandelier or Drop earrings to bring focus  to your face so everyone’s eyes are on you the entire Wedding Day. 

Hair Design trends lean towards romantic styling as hair is allowed to do ‘ it’s thing’… with loose curls even if your choice is the ‘updo.’    

There are beautiful new styles and colors in gowns for Bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride. So, explore many options to find what’s perfect for your figure and taste.    

Coastal North Carolina hosts hundreds of miles of pristine beaches against a backdrop of a azure blue sea, truly this is the destination to make your Beach Wedding a dream come true.  Among my favorites, Wrightsville Beach, Airlie Gardens and Bald Head  Island!

Who does my hair? I’m often asked who colors and cuts my hair so I’m giving Lyn Crompton a great big ‘Shout Out’ …and thank you.

Lyn is totally into her profession and loves pleasing her clients. I can be a difficult client because of my high standards. Lyn deserves a compliment and praise for consistently doing a fabulous job with my hair. She’s been a creative cosmetologist since 1993 and often says “making her clients ‘feel good’ about their hair is her top priority.”

Lyn Crompton  presently works in the Monkey Junction area. She’s been my hairstylist and colorist for the last 4 years. She presently works at the Hair Studio. 910.792.0121
