After 30 years within the business, make-up artist Anna Durston (50) is aware of a factor or two about make girls appear and feel their finest. She has labored with high-profile names corresponding to actress: Jenny Agutter, journalists Laura Kuenssburg and Tina Daheley, chef Monica Galetti and meals author and broadcaster Mary Berry. She has additionally accomplished quite a few editorial and business shoots, and through the years our paths have crossed many instances. I’ve at all times appreciated her optimistic method in the direction of the ageing course of and her requires better inclusivity within the business.

Anna strongly believes that magnificence and age go hand-in-hand. She urges girls to take time for themselves, spend time researching the appropriate merchandise and to ask for assist or recommendation when it’s wanted. Right here she shares create a light-weight, understated make-up search for summer season:



Attempt a less-products-is-more method in the summertime months – so there’s much less likelihood of make-up shifting or sweating off. I normally prep summer season pores and skin with La Roche Posay’s Toleriane Moisturiser, which I put on with a high-factor SPF (for daytime). Utilizing lighter textures lets you construct them up as essential. I like to recommend a tinted moisturiser to even-out discolouration and create a pure end. Nars Tinted Moisturiser is a superb all-rounder. The Max Factor Tinted Moisturiser can also be straightforward to placed on and the worth is good (I take advantage of it on a regular basis on photoshoots). Then, add a contact of concealer right here and there, to masks any discolouration or age spots.

If it’s a extremely scorching and sweaty day, maintain eyeliner to a high quality line and near the lashes to minimise smudging. I take advantage of Hourglass Mascara so as to add quantity, raise and separation, creating the impact of fuller trying lashes. I at all times fill out my brows with Wunderbrow Gel – outlined eyebrows actually raise your face – it makes such a distinction.

The glow you get with a cream blush in summer season is beautiful. I like utilizing NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Mousse. Creamy formulations work brilliantly on mature pores and skin as a result of they don’t settle into strains like many powders do. As a last contact, I flippantly mud my face with Beauty Pie One Powder Wonder. It’s a finely-milled, almost translucent powder, which takes away undesirable shine with out ‘mattifying’ the pores and skin an excessive amount of. It’s a improbable powder for older pores and skin as a result of it doesn’t really feel heavy or cake-y.

Refresh your pores and skin all through the day utilizing a pores and skin tonic or mist. I fee the Kefir Tea Mist from Elemis which has a beautiful mild perfume. Maintain one in your bag for a fast spritz to nourish flushed pores and skin. To refresh your make-up, flippantly mist throughout your face after which, gently use your ring finger to softly pat it round for added moisture and assist to even out your make-up once more.

On lips, a tinted balm will add moisture and a touch of color which is simple to top-up. I like a budget and cheerful Vaseline Rosy Tinted Lip Balm and at all times carry it with me – and I do know Crew TNMA are large followers of Burt’s Bees.
