The yellow-based concealers allow light to dark skin under the eyes and cause any person has a fresh look, as if he had slept 8 hours (when only sleepfive). The concealer can instantly brighten your face and lift the spirit.


What you should consider before buying any product of makeup?
The most important thing to consider when buying makeup is the personal style. If you prefer a more natural look, don’t let anyone push you to buy products that produce a blur or dramatically red lips look.
On the other hand, if you prefer a more elegant look and so probably won’t be satisfied with a completely neutral palette. So, to go to a makeup counter remember that no one can force you to buy whatever it is. Should only buy what worksfor you.
What is the best way to maintain a healthy Tan all year round?
Since the post to self tanning there are currently numerous options, which makethe life of those who want to maintain a natural Tan all year round. My favorite product is the bronzing powder because it’s quick and easy to apply. If you havedry skin, try a cream formula. For those who have oily skin, tanning gel is a good option. If you want the bronzed aspect last few days suggest the use of a self-Tanner.
What are your personal secrets to maintaining a youthful appearance?
From 50 years ago, the beauty is based on taking care of yourself and to feel good. We must, therefore, eat healthily, drink lots of water, wear sunscreen and doregular queries to the doctor. The most important aspect to remember is not looking at us as we are now, not compared to what we were used to.
Replace the usual moisturizer for a extra-rica formula can make the skin look fresher and make wrinkles less visible. A fond de teint in cream with moisturizing ingredients improves skin appearance and comfort. The definition is the key to this step, so I advise the use of a lip pencil to keep lipstick and an eyeliner to highlight the eyes.
That takes into account aspects when creating a new product of makeup?
Integrity is a word that means a lot to me professionally. I don’t believe in say to women that they need to buy something or, in other words, I don’t believe in creating needs. On the contrary, I believe in creating products that meet the needs of women. That’s how all my products emerge.
For example, I created a skin care line extra when I realized that the existing linewas not moisturize the skin very dry enough, mine included.
