My teenage daughter today asked me if I felt that I should try some new makeup. It was a subtle hint. She said “it’s just that sometimes it looks like you just slap it on your face and don’t blend it in properly.” Well thank you. So it’s time to look for something new and to improve my application technique.
First, a bit about my over 50 skin. It’s not bad, but it’s pretty pale, and I have had skin cancer removed from my nose. Therefore, I like a makeup that has a SPF, is fair in tone, but that gives solid coverage to my nose, without looking caked on or oily. A dewy glow, like those “Real Housewives of Vancouver” or wherever will leave me looking bumpy. Matt finish for me!
I am trying Almay Smart Shade anti-aging in light 100. I love the SPF of 20, and I love the way that it applies and changes colour as I put it on. I’m thinking though that perhaps I am applying it too sparingly, or that it’s just not the right product for me as I do not think I am fully covered. I do not find that I get any bad skin results from it, it’s just that I think I could achieve more coverage.
