A Long-Lasting Look
Makeup tips for a flawless face that lasts all day
No one wants a makeup meltdown. To keep your face looking fresh and at its best, there are a few simple rules to follow.
Build a Strong Foundation
If your look is flawless in the morning but faltering by the afternoon, you need to rethink your foundation. Minimize fading and shine by choosing makeup designed to last all day. Infallible® Make-up was created to combat makeup meltdown by absorbing oil and putting an end to rub-off.
Show Your True Powder
Using a pressed powder is the perfect way to set your makeup, and it’s convenient for on-the-go touch-ups. True Match™ Pressed Powder blends with your skin for a flawless finish. Use it over foundation, alone or as needed. The oil-free formula keeps shine away while giving you the coverage you need.
Be Tough As Nails
The key to extending your manicure is all in the top coat. Not only does it add serious shine, but it also actually creates a barrier to protect your polish.
Seal Your Lips
For color that stays true, use long-wearing Infallible® Lipcolor. The coverage lasts up to 16 hours so you’ll have luscious, kissable lips from morning till night.
Be a Natural Beauty
Get-gorgeous lifestyle tips
The key to looking your best is taking care of yourself. Here are a few tips for getting naturally gorgeous–from the inside out.
Take H2O to Go
Water is essential. If you feel thirsty, you’re already dehydrated. On average, women are advised to drink about 2.5 liters a day, but depending on your level of activity or climate, you may need more. To increase your water intake, keep a bottle with you. You’ll reach for it more often and quickly reap the benefits. From promoting healthy skin to ridding your body of toxins and impurities, water helps keep you looking good and feeling great.
Slather on the Sunscreen
Skin needs protection from the sun’s rays. The UV index has reached scorching levels—and not just in the summer months—so be sure to wear sunscreen every day. For your face, opt for a lotion or foundation that features SPF 15 to help keep skin protected and wrinkle-free. Remember that SPF allows you to stay in the sun longer without burning, but too much sun exposure can still cause damage—even if you’re using SPF 50. So when in doubt, cover up.
Eat Your Greens
Raw fruits and vegetables are rich in vitamins and antioxidants, which benefit your body inside and out. If you’re feeling sleepy in the afternoon, reach for a green apple. It delivers a better boost than a cup of coffee, plus it provides a feeling of fullness without the heavy meal. To reduce bloating, try cucumbers. Just as they remove puffiness from around your eyes, they can nix bloating by filtering out excess water and sodium from your body. To improve your immune system, reach for tomatoes and pomegranates. They’re rich in antioxidants, and help to flush out toxins while keeping your immune system strong.
Catch Some Zzzzs
There’s a reason your mother called it beauty rest. Not getting enough sleep creates stress for the body, which shows up on your face. The recommended amount of sleep for adults is eight hours. You can increase the possibility of getting a good night’s rest by going to sleep at the same time every night. This creates a rhythm for your body to follow. With proper rest, you’ll not only maintain a healthy appearance, but also improve your memory and alertness during the day.
Shades Just for You
Discover the shades that complement your unique look
Lighter colors generally work better on fair skin. Earthy tones or pastels flatter, and mascara should usually be kept to brown or black/brown. Choose light lipstick and peach for your cheeks. Fair-skinned women can also benefit from more daring bursts of color like thin, dark liner around the eyes, but keep everything else neutral to make them pop. A bright lip looks stunning against a clean, pale face.
This skin tone allows for a lot of color variety. You can easily wear rich shades and deep earth tones or colors such as hunter green and plum to accentuate your eyes. Coral shades look best on cheeks and bronzing powder can enhance your natural tone. Medium skin tones have a versatile lip palette, so color can range from sheer pink by day to deep red by night.
Dark skin tones allow you to opt for one of two extremes: dark and deep or light and shimmery. Neutral shades, dark purple, and dark blue are ideal for highlighting eyes. Metallic shades in silver, copper, and even gold, although very different from darker colors, work to make your eyes the focus of your face. Cheek tones should be kept close to your natural tone. Dark lip colors such as berries, caramels, and reds work well for this skin tone.
Neutral shades and dark purples and greens work well to outline your eyes because although your skin may be light, it offers the warmth these colors require. Cheeks should be highlighted with bronzing powder, burgundy, or plum blush. Similar colors like berries, plums, and neutrals also bring out your lips. True reds should be avoided as they often clash with an olive skin tone.

A classic beauty, Penélope Cruz opts for a natural look, which begins with healthy, glowing skin. To keep her complexion looking radiant, Penelope opts for True Match Naturale™ Gentle Mineral Makeup. The unique fragrance-free, oil-free formula perfects skin without looking heavy and it contains aloe, vitamin B5, and SPF 19 to soothe, protect, and nourish skin. Once foundation is complete, line the upper lids with black eyeliner and gently smudge the line with a cotton swab. Next, apply liner just inside the lower lash line to make lashes look full and luscious. Curl lashes, apply two coats of mascara, and brush eyebrows upward. Highlight cheeks with a rich red-brown blush and apply a semi-matte lipstick in a similar shade across lips to complete the look.
Beyoncé Knowles always shines. To enhance her star power, she chooses copper and bronze hues that bring out her natural beauty. To create this look, start by applying a warm earth-tone shimmery shadow across the lid. To add depth, choose a richer hue to blend from the pupil to the outer edge of the eye. Line eyes with black-brown pencil within the lash, line to make them look rich and thick. Create doe-like lashes by curling and using Voluminous Mascara to extend them to their full potential. Remember to do both upper and lower lashes. Dust Glam Bronze Loose Powder Highlighter across cheeks, forehead, and chin to get gorgeous shimmer all over and that signature Beyoncé Glow. Finish with a Colour Riche® Sheers for seductive lips that shine.
Forever confident and always original, Diane Keaton’s look is beautifully effortless. To emulate her style, start with Age Perfect® foundation, which will help create a bright, flawless-looking finish. For best results, apply with a brush or sponge to ensure even coverage. Next, use a concealer to hide any minor imperfections. Then, with a large brush, dust an earth-tone blush or bronzer across the face and neckline to give skin a warm glow. Line eyes with a deep brown shadow or liner to make the lash line appear fuller, and then finish with mascara. Complete the look with a coral liner and matte lipstick for the perfect finish.
