The two columns extending from the base of your nose to the cupid’s bow tend to flatten as we age -- a tiny thing that just subconsciously “reads tired”.
Take a very pale beige or white eyeshadow with just a hint of shimmer (Jane Iredale’s Opal Crush is perfect) and use a small shading brush which you will touch just lightly to the shadow. Place a faint line on the crests of the columns and then run it just above where you’ll place your lip liner.
This has to be done very subtly, so you may want to take a fingertip and pat it a little to blend. Sit back and look – immediately there’s a perky little pout and the upper lip looks more elevated! (Jill or I can show you how to do this too.)
I’ll have another tip for you on October 20th!
