Jouer Cosmetics: Red Carpet-Inspired Beauty for Summer 2009
this summer, celebrities like Lauren Conrad, Giselle Bundchen and Hilary Duff all appear to have just stepped off the beach and onto the red carpet. but for us real people, life is not a day at the beach. everything from stress to aging, as well as other factors can wear away at our skin, leaving us looking tired, dull and sullen. Christina Zilber, make-up stylist and founder of Jouer Cosmetics, has some easy ways to fake a healthy luminous look using Jouer products...
how to get the look:
**to protect skin from excess oil, Christina begins by using fingertips to apply Jouer Essential Matte Touch where needed. this botanical mattifier can be used under makeup or alone to purify skin and calm irritation, while firming and moisturizing with vitamins C, D, and E.
**the most important aspect to any celebrity look is flawless skin. even out your complexion using the Jouer's Luminizing Moisture Tint. this lightweight hydrating tint evens out imperfections and fades the appearance of fine lines. rich spf 20 protects from UVA and UVB rays, while ginseng and gingko biloba leaf extract deliver antioxidants to the skin, promoting a healthy complexion.
**follow by applying Jouer's Mineral Powder Bronzer in "Suntan" for a golden bronze. perfect for all skin tones, this oil-free mineral rich powder is loaded with japanese green tea powder and antioxidants to help protect skin throughout the summer months. Christina then recommends applying a light peach or pink blush to the apple of the cheek for a fresh, youthful glow.
**complete the look with a smooth beautiful finish by adding Jouer's Age Repairing Perfector. this mineral age-repairing perfector enhances and evens out complexion while concealing the appearance of redness and other blemishes without the sensation of feeling heavy.
see, you too can have a radiant glow just like these celebrities-- thanks Christina!
