I’ve been getting a lot of questions lately from women asking me if they can wear ‘shimmer’ after the age of 30? And, my answer to that question, is ABSOLUTELY!
Shimmer is used in cosmetics to help add a nice subtle glow to your makeup application – and there’s nothing I love more than a beautiful ‘glow’! So, here are some easy tips on how to add a little shimmer in your life at any age!
Make sure you’re using “shimmer” and not “glitter”. Glitter, is a great way to add sparkle to a look, but is primarily used by fun teenagers or in stage makeup to help reflect light. Shimmer is the more subdued relative, and can be worn by anyone.
Use a light hand – If you’re going for a natural look and using products with “shimmer” in it, you’re going to want to keep the intensity to a minimum. Always tap off the brush before applying it on your face and use a light hand.
Intensify it - If you’re looking to create a dramatic look – try layering it. Shimmer builds really well and looks amazing when layered!
To add radiance to your face, try highlighting the top of your cheek bones with some shimmer. My favourite product on the market is: Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick – It is by far the greatest way to add the perfect glow! The best part is that they come in a wide variety of shades – Beige, Bronze, Rose, Pink and Apricot - and can be used as a bronzer, blush and/or eyeshadow! Plus, they’re great for women of all ages! A Definite Must Have!!
I hope this helped you out!
