Want to look young and fresh, everyday? Here are twelve tips from my experience as a make-up artist to help you look your best. Try them out! Be fabulous!

Moisturize

To keep our skin looking fresh and supple moisturize twice daily (morning and evening).

Try teeth whitening

Over time, teeth may yellow from coffee, tea or red wine stains. You can whiten teeth quickly with over-the-counter products such as Crest White strips.

Smile

A simple grin can take years off your face. Smiling also makes us feel youthful. Think about all the women you admire.

Sleep

Few things age you overnight more than a poor night’s sleep. Your eyes are puffy, your skin sallow and dull and your face sags.

Cheeks

Older skin usually means dry skin, so creamy blushes are the way to go. Powder blushes tend to settle into your fine lines and wrinkles, while creamier products “plump” up your skin.

Foundation

A minimal approach is the most flattering. Try a tinted moisturizer with sunscreen. Use powder only in T-zone (forehead, nose, and chin area) if you have oily skin.

Avoid Heavy Clumpy Mascara

Wipe Mascara wand with a tissue before applying to give lashes a more natural look.

Curl Your Eyelashes

Curled lashes immediately make eyes “pop.” Do this before you put on your mascara. If you are going to curl your lashes after you applied mascara, make sure it has completely dried.

Lips

Use creamier lipsticks, avoiding matte lipstick as they tend to be dry and settle into your lip lines. If you don’t wear lipstick try a tinted lip balm or gloss.. A few shades darker than your natural lip color will brighten your complexion.

Eyebrows

Once you hit your 30s, you’ll want to be careful not to overtweeze your eyebrows. Fill in sparse areas with eyebrow pencil or eye shadow

Drink water

Drinking 6-8 glasses a day is the recommended amount and will keep your skin hydrated.

Stand Tall

Stand up straight and confidently. Not only will this make you look five years younger ,it will make you look ten pounds thinner in seconds.

About Cyvia Lewis

Ever since I can remember I have had a desire to reveal the beauty that I see in everyone, and have always been fascinated on the affects of makeup not only on the face but also the mind and spirit.  I sincerely feel that everyone is beautiful and that sometimes all that you have to do is step outside of yourself to really “see” your true attributes. That’s where I come in. I can highlight those amazing cheekbones that you may not even realize you have to give you an exotic or sophisticated look while keeping you, YOU. Being a mother of three, I realize that applying makeup needs to be done in an everyday realistic way for everyday women and mothers and that it also needs to able to be put on quickly.
