Over the course of the next six weeks, women will be striving to keep their figures intact during the height of the holiday party season. We are noticing that a lot more women are sporting makeup everywhere now — especially during the holiday party season.
We had a chance to do a little “girl talk” with Boots beauty Advisor, Deborah Wright and learned some great tips to keep your makeup from sliding while you’re running those extra laps.
A- I call it three minute makeup. We all have three minutes to spare so take a deep breath look in the mirror put your hair in a pony tail or a head band and let’s do the quick three minute make-up. Seriously that’s really all it takes. Grab the No7 Soft and Sheer Tinted Moisturiser which is great for the on the run ladies or just those who prefer a simple yet effective form of cover-up. The hint of color is sheer but it still evens out your skin tone and gives you this radiant glow. It also has an SPF of 15 which is very important.
Next thing is to grab your No7 Stay Perfect Eye Mousse in Vanilla. This is a great all day shade as it highlights the eye without ever being cakey. Just put a little on your finger and apply to your eye and brow bone area. This is great for the gym enthusiast because it is waterproof. The eye mousse will outlast your exercise routine.
Now take that No7 Amazing Eyes Pencil in Blue/Grey and do a soft line across each eye next to the lash line. Blue/gray gives your eyes a lovely defined look. Take that long lasting No7 mascara of your choice, give your lashes two coats and your eyes are finished. Have you checked the clock I bet you have plenty of time to finish under the three minute time frame.
Finish your run and go look with No7 Sheer Temptation Lipstick in the shade of your choice. These lipsticks are great and with names like Entice, Attract, Excite and Smoulder you will be super hot at the gym or at coffee with a friend. Your lips will have a sheer wash of glossy color, they will be hydrated and best of all, not sticky. Every color in this line is so great you will want them all.
Ok, three minutes are up, you did five things to your face and you look totally fabulous!
Q- We all want to look healthy and have a little glow. How do we keep our makeup budge proof while running around town, or even at the gym?
A- If you want a little glow during your workout apply some of the No7 High Lights Illuminating Lotion to your skin before your work out. The pink pearly lotion contains light reflecting particles which illuminate your skin while also diffusing imperfections such as fine lines and you won’t worry about makeup running during your workout. High Lights Illuminating Lotion can also be mixed with your favorite Boots No7 foundation for a natural dewy glow.
And everyone wants to have those lashes no matter what they are doing. I suggest No7 Lash and Brow Perfector – your lashes and brows will look defined and you will not have to worry about any mascara smudges during your spin class!
Now just dot on a little No7 High Shine Gloss in Whisper and your ready for your workout or just sitting at the juice bar.
And the must have for all the ladies gym bags is the No7 – 4 in 1 Quick Thinking Wipes. These wipes cleanse tone, moisturize and take off eye makeup all in one step. They leave your skin feeling smooth, clean and fresh, they are fragrance free and like all Boots products they are hypo-allergenic and dermatologically tested for sensitivity.
Q- We’re talking a smidge of mascara and a hint of blush, what’s your best pick?
A- All of the No7 Mascaras are fabulous but Stay Perfect is the “go to” for anyone on the run. Its smudge proof, and long lasting. I have tried so many mascaras in my lifetime and lots have gone right in the garbage. I determine a mascara’s worth by answering the two most asked questions by all women…..does it clump when I put it on and does it flake off by the end of the day. If you look in the mirror at the end of the day and you see flakes, your mascara is not working. The Boots No 7 mascaras do not clump nor do they flake off and are only $7.99.
Cheek Tints are great for the quick cheek glow and because they are buildable colors you can give yourself just a hint of color during the day or go a bit more dramatic for that night out. They are creamy but not greasy and smooth on easily with your finger tips. They also are fortified with Vitamin E and ProVitamin B5 to help care and condition your skin.
Q- Should we “take time to prime”?
A- Your skin is so important. We deal with everyday pollutants so it is so very important to establish not just a good skin routine but one that is great for the skin. Washing anymore is just not enough to keep our skin in optimal health. Cleansing, toning and moisturizing are the minimal that we should be doing twice a day. Add into your routine gentle exfoliation and treatments to your skin throughout the week will assure your skin stays in great shape. If your skin is well exfoliated, cleansed and hydrated you and everyone around you will see the difference. I have people say to me wow you have great skin, but I work with my skin. I clean it and I do the things necessary to have good skin and so should every woman. If you take those few minutes each day you will see a difference in no time. Your skin will glow and your make-up will apply so much better because the canvas will be perfect. Your face is your canvas to the world. Just add a smile and you are ready for everything!
