Our beauty trend editor Kate Fannin gives us the low down on the best and brightest in anti-aging products.
As I celebrate my birthday today, it’s the perfect time to mention some favorite anti-aging products (and some that just make me feel or look younger than my 42 years!).
I started using sunscreen in high school (and am thankful I did; I shockingly still get carded sometimes). Also, I diligently follow my dad’s greatest ‘beauty’ advice, “keep a lip balm in every jacket pocket”–that has saved my lips more times than I can count! Ultimately, you’re truly as young as you feel, but a little ‘preventative maintenance’ and good old-fashioned primping never hurts. Nor does a glass of champagne and gourmet cupcake on your b-day…
La Mer Radiant Concealer: All the wonderfulness of La Mer in a creamy, luxurious concealer with the added bonus of SPF 25.
Dolce & Gabbana Passioneyes Mascara: Seriously my new favorite mascara; it lengthens and layers like a dream.
PAULA’S CHOICE ‘Skin Perfecting’ 2% BHA Liquid: The perfect amount of active ingredients to be effective without any harshness (even on semi-sensitive skin)–you’ll truly feel results in less than a week!
Supergoop Serum SPF 30: The one product I absolutely will not leave the house without–no matter the weather.
Jo Malone Wild Bluebell Cologne: This scent honestly makes me feel younger. It’s light-hearted, lovely and lush!
Fresh Sugar Lip Serum: Because lips need more attention than we give them, this is the first step for a youthful pucker.
YSL Le Teint Saharienne Blur Perfector: Choose a slightly darker shade to use as a bronzer or for sculpting. You won’t believe the amazing scent and luxe texture!.
Clinique All About Eyes: There’s a reason this has won so many beauty awards.
Napolean Perdis Mask: Beyond the velvety texture and yummy scent, this leave-on moisturizer is perfect just before your nightly beauty sleep.
Estee Lauder Pure Color Lip Lacquer: Cushiony, non-sticky texture, great scent, and just the right amount of color = the perfect go-to gloss.
Dr. Gross Alpha Beta Glotion Self-Tanning Moisturizer: Super easy to apply and it leaves just the right amount of glow. Bonus points for a pleasant scent!
Nars Dual-Intensity Blush in Jubilation: Just a hint of color when used dry, or add a little intensity by applying wet–the perfect alternative to bronzer.
Jack Black Lip Balm: With SPF 25 and the unisex, cool blue tube, Dad was pretty glad I left one in his jacket pocket.
And that’s my take!
