As a woman in her mid-40s, less is definitely more and a classic yet pared down look makes me feel most confident. Here are a few products I’ve been playing with lately and absolutely love — I think you will too.

Super Serum Skin Tine SPF 40

First off, I’m super excited about my new Ilia. This first-of-it’s-kind formula fuses skincare, makeup and sun protection in one step. It’s a lovely lightweight skin tint that offers a dewy finish and leaves your skin looking like skin. Not to mention, this line was founded in Vancouver, it’s clean-centric and focuses on sustainable packaging.

Benefit Cosmetics — Hoola Bronzer

I love wearing bronzer all year round and this is one of my go-to bronzers because the looks natural. It’s available in a rage of shades (light, original, caramel and toasted) for varying skin tones.

Charlotte Tilbury — Eyes to Mesmerize Cream Matte Eyeshadows

For my eyes, I used the Charlotte Tilbury’s new offering. They sent me a few shades to test out and I am really loving the texture and ease of application. I applied the Smokey Taupe on my eyelid and blended it with my finger. I used a brush to blend the same shade onto my lower lash line, then layered Flawless Beige into the crease to blend to create a soft smoky look. I then curled my lashes and coated them with black mascara.

Benefit Cosmetics — Precisely My Brow Pencil

Full and fluffy brows are a must in my beauty routine these days and this brow pencil layered with Benefit — Gimme Brow Volumizing Brow Gel helps me get them on point.

Benefit Cosmetics — Boi-Ing Cakeless Concealer

To brighten under my eyes, I used this concealer as it offers full coverage that doesn’t cake or crack and feels flawless and natural.

Stila — Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick

To pull the look together I used this lipstick in Bellezza. This is a full coverage, long wearing and pigmented lip product and the way I like to apply it is to start with little lip balm, dab a little of the liquid lipstick onto my mouth using my finger and then touching up the lip line with a matching lip pencil.
