Shades of eyes in three tones!
You do not stop proving Mineral ColorStay Eyeshadow, of Revlon
Like most cosmetic products, mineral makeup has its fans and its critics. Those who love it rave about the light, natural, long-lasting glow that simply can't be duplicated by other types of makeup. Others, however, complain it's drying, irritating, and accentuates wrinkles and adds years to your appearance. Some say the colors have an ashy undertone that is a particular problem for ethnic skin types.
But looks aside, many consumers also say they are initially drawn to try mineral makeup because of skin health claims – more specifically, that it's pure formulations are safer and better for sensitive, even acne- or rosacea-prone skin.
But is it?
"Quite frankly, I think mineral makeup is just a genius marketing plan -- a new way of selling women the same ingredients that technically have been in makeup for years," says dermatologic and pharmaceutical chemist Ben Kaminsky, author of the new book Beyond Botox: 7 Secrets for Sexy, Ageless Skin.
The key to getting this look right is to first decide if you want it to highlight the apples of your cheeks or to make your cheekbones standout. If you want your cheekbones to standout, start the blush just under the apples of your cheekbones and sweep it up to your temples. Once that's done, apply a touch of color to the apples of your cheeks for just a hint of color.
If you want the apples to appear more prominent, don't sweep it up to the temples. It's that simple to look great!
