What is the #1 beauty trend at TIFF this season? Is it deep-coloured, pouty lips? Could it be the longest, lushest lashes? Perhaps super-sculpted cheeks? It’s actually none of these things: the answer is flawless, luminous skin.
We need to glow like a superstar this week at TIFF but our skin isn’t looking as fresh and young as it used to. As we age, a lack of – or an uneven distribution of – melanin, haemoglobin and collagen affects how light is reflected off skin. The result is an increase in age spots, spider veins, blotchiness and discolouration.
Whilst visiting the celebrity swag destination – IT Lounge, we came across a miraculous skin solution. Olay Definity is a precision technology anti-aging skincare collection, containing the Olay-exclusive Essential Glucosamine Complex. Over time, this product can help reduce the appearance of skin discolorations such as dullness and brown spots. With daily use Olay Definity penetrates (up to) 10 surface skin layers and helps reverse the appearance of past damage for a look that’s highly defined, visibly smooth and luminous.
Here are Lipstick Powder N Paint’s four steps to creating your own luminously perfect skin – using Olay Definity:
1. Start off by cleansing your skin with Olay Definity Illuminating Cream Cleanser. Its rich hydrating formula gently removes micro-residue — even small traces of dirt and make-up — while re-hydrating to instantly illuminate skin.
2. The next step is to apply your serum. Olay Definity Re-Energizing Serum has a smooth, luminous formula that instantly helps transform the look of even the toughest fine lines and wrinkles. It ignites the skin’s natural ability to self-repair, diminishing the look of discoloration, dullness and brown spots.
3. Moisturize. Olay Definity Refining Lotion with UV Protection fights the appearance of skin discolorations while helping prevent future damage, and contains SPF 15. This product can be used alone (which we do) or layered on top of Olay Definity Deep Penetrating Foaming Moisturizer for a little more hydration.
4. Always use an eye cream. Olay Definity Eye Illuminator’s dual-action formula really does “illuminate” the complete eye area and smoothes the look of fine lines and wrinkles with a spiral of concentrated serum.
Now you are ready to begin applying your favourite beauty products to finish that ‘red carpet’ look.
