I’m in the throes of New York Fashion Week, and unfortunately, my ‘Energizer Bunny’ days are over. So, despite my lowered energy level, I have to exude liveliness while I am running from show-to-show and conducting backstage interviews. Keep in mind that I am on PST time, (California girl here) and not a morning person, so this whole early morning business is working on me.
To that end, I keep in my personal beauty arsenal products that help me fake the appearance of ‘bright and cheery’, even when that is not that case. While at the IFB conference, I had the pleasure of getting an introduction to a few new products from BareMinerals. One of them was Well-Rested® Face & Eye Brightener.
Let me just say that this wonder wand has saved my life. Or at least my face. Given that the formula is white, I was quite skeptical of it looking “natural” on my brown skin. But, my doubts were immediately squashed after a gander at myself in the mirror.
How I use Well-Rested® Face & Eye Brightener:
After completing my makeup, I apply Well-Rested® Face & Eye Brightener under my area extending above my cheekbone to my temple. (Yes, I’m all for the over 50 lift techniques.) And miraculously, I looked, well, well-rested.
Well-Rested® Face & Eye Brightener is now part of my regular makeup regimen—whether I have full-face makeup, or just my basic concealer, tinted moisturizer and lipgloss.
What it is:
A mineral eye brightener that instantly revives a lackluster complexion.
What it does:
This sheer mineral formula immediately infuses radiance and highlights and illuminates dull skin. Light-reflecting minerals even skintone while improving skin radiance and visibly minimizing dark spots, wrinkles, lines, and discolorations over time.
