I'm asked often about oil
control and mattifying products - timely because higher temperatures and
Summer are right around the corner - meaning more oil production
usually. Mattifying gels and lotions are great to use either alone
without any makeup - this gives the appearance of perfect pores and
luminosity without that oil slick - also under your foundation - mixed
in with your foundation (as in the Make Up For Ever product) - and
applied over your makeup for extra shine and oil control. This summer
try any of these application tips for your perfect complexion.
MAKE UP FOR EVER
Face Matifying Primer
The All Mat Matifying Primer formula is based on an oil-free and
colorless powdered gel providing extreme comfort. Designed to absorb
the excess of sebum, it leaves the skin soft without a hint of shine.
TIP: All Mat can also be
used as a make up primer. Applied in a thin and even layer (I use a
foundation brush), it makes make up application easier and provides
long-lasting results. It can easily be blended with a foundation or make
up primer to enhance the matifying properties of make up.
FACE TO FACE
Super Matte Antishine
This innovative product has been uniquely formulated to matte the shine
of oily skin. Most of the large makeup manufacturers have tried to
duplicate this product with no success. Super Matte Antishine has been used by leading film and television
actors. It leaves skin feeling fresh and taut and won't produce that
"caked on" feeling you get from powder. It is available in three sheer
shades: light, medium, and dark. Antishine is great not only for women,
but also for men's palms, foreheads and balding scalps. (Always in my
PETER THOMAS ROTH

pore minimizing properties. Absorbs shine and controls excess oil and

HOW DO THEY LOOK SO FRESH? In my line of work I run across a
plethora (I love that word) of beauty and skin products every single
day. It can be intimidating even for me in the business - I can only
imagine how it is for my clients. What to buy, what to try, what on
earth to TRUST?
Here are a couple of great products I recommend and to whom:
resurfacing cream contains the exclusive PROmc3, an earth mineral
complex of Calcium, Magnesium, and Aluminum along with hydrating Jojoba
Beads that leave your skin looking youthful, healthy and clear.
recommend this for everyone that needs a special de-DULLifying - which
frankly is everyone - use sparingly, GENTLY and no more than 2x a week
on average. Overuse will cause skin problems. Less in this case is
more. An amazing product for most all - but those with skin eruptions
or major acne. Avoid the eye area.
This gentle, exfoliating mask harnesses the natural power of
cranberry enzymes and lactic acid to tenderly scrub away facial
impurities and decongest blocked pores. As active ingredients
exfoliate, protect and revitalize the skin, potent, oil-free
moisturizers add a dewy softness to blemish-prone skin.
TIP: Safe to use after your gentle cleanser 2-3x per week. Avoid
the eye area. Pure Enzymes is a great way to “clean up” the last
traces of sloughing skin following a peel and jumpstart the recovery
process. For best results, apply five days after peel.
Immediate lifting, lasting repositioning*. Inspired by eye-lifting
surgical techniques, Rénergie Microlift Eye R.A.R.E.™ Lifter Helps
recreate a younger, lifted look in the delicate eye area. At the same
time, the unique R.A.R.E.™ oligopeptide helps to re-bundle collagen**.
The eye contour regains a visibly lifted smoother, naturally youthful
TIP: WHAT DO I SAY? THIS STUFF JUST PLAIN WORKS. It's simply
amazing and I recommend it for everyone over 35. Those younger girls
can switch over to the Renergie Eye line for their own perfect formula.

If you are not already acquainted with a skincare routine - Try to start your skincare plan at least six months to one year before your wedding day to ensure your skin is properly cared for and looking its best. You don’t want to wait until the month of your wedding to start using new products because you could develop an allergic reaction to some products which could take up to two months to clear. Or the opposite can occur and it could take 30-60 days for new products to really work their magic.
On the morning of your wedding, skip the lotions, toners or any products that will be between your skin and your makeup before you get your makeup done. Let your makeup artist do their complete skin prep (I DO THIS STEP FOR YOU) - this is optimal for a few reasons...mainly, they know their products and what skin products to use in coordination. This step will help your makeup adhere to your skin better with less chance of slippage when you start to get hot and sweat, because there is a fine line between a sweaty shine and a dewy glow. Be sure to let your makeup artist know about your skin concerns so that they may use additional products if necessary to help achieve the best application. Throughout the day and evening, avoid the temptation to apply too much pressed or loose powder to absorb shine because you will only cake on the powder, so use blotting sheets (oil absorbing papers) which are the best way to eliminate shine and not smudge your makeup. Sometimes even adding the simplest efforts to your routine can help your skin look more luminous:
drinking eight glasses of water daily,
cutting back on caffeine and alcohol consumption,
keeping a gentle and appropriate skincare routine (!),
not stressing out about the little details before your wedding
and getting plenty of rest the week of will help your skin glow and allow your makeup artist to make you into the beautiful blushing bride you dream of!
