Beautiful tropical sun or skiing
We are in the middle of winter. It’s time of weeks or white – for lovers of sun and heat – to book a holiday in the tropics. But, beware, the skin was not exposed to the sun for a long time and also tends to be dry and therefore more fragile because of the cold and wind that have been exposed in recent months. For these reasons it is very important to protect yourself well when you put your skis or when you go on a winter holiday in the sun of the tropics.
Not only do we expose our skin after a long time in the sun, but we expose to extreme situations: the intense tropical sun or the beautiful sun of the mountains where the snow further strengthens the effect. So we must protect! But during these periods of relaxation – the winter break – we also want to be beautiful! Michael Magnani, Mac make-up artist, explains how to protect ourselves and how – at the same time – to shine on the slopes or on the deck beside the ocean.
‘First of all,’ says Michael, ‘is a good habit to always use a moisturizer with a sunscreen, not only when skiing, but always and everywhere, never get to face’ unprotected ‘. There are moisturizers with sunscreen as tall as the Day Cream SPF 15 Light Moisture Mac, a light cream that moisturizes the skin and protects it at the same time by the sun ‘.
Of course we want to have perfect skin – no blemishes, redness or other imperfections – even skiing. ‘Small imperfections can be disguised with a little’ corrector ‘, says Michael. ‘And as for the uniformity of the face: it is said that sports can not use a foundation to look always beautiful and seductive! Especially when we are on holiday we want to look your best.’ Michele for a day of skiing we recommend a very moisturizing fluid foundation, and therefore, with a solar filter for maximum protection. The combination of the sunscreen day cream foundation and offer good protection to the skin. However, if you have very light skin and delicate it is better to use a sunscreen with a filter in place of the full day cream. The foundation can then be applied over sunscreen.
Skiing, the skin of our face is very exposed, even for the high rate at which we move. The foundation tends to fade and the first face, the cold and intense movement, tends to grow hot.
‘To secure better makeup or to refresh your face flushed Fix Plus is perfect,’ says Michael. ‘It is a product sprayed from a distance of 30 cm gives immediately soothes the skin, flushed or slightly sunburned. Placed after the make-up serves as a fixer for the make-up, in order to have flawless skin all day.’
Then the lips are very important to be protected and fed with a suitable product for the lips. But of course we want to give a little ‘color to our lips. ‘Ideal for this is the new lipstick with sunscreen SPF 15 for Mac,’ says Michael. ‘On the slopes – but also for those who practice other sports – the tones are very suitable for a little’ less opaque with a natural (not to give the impression of being too much makeup), even better at the same time moisturizing.’
‘As skiing always protect our eyes with sunglasses do not need to trick’, says Michael. ‘Better to put all the emphasis on the mouth that will stand up. For the eyes we can limit ourselves to mascara, of course, waterproof to prevent tears caused by the cold leave two fine black lines on the cheeks. The eye is always very well protected with a special cream, morning and evening ‘.
The blush is not needed but on skis, also, because due to the cold and movement cheeks turn red in a very natural. The sun then we will give a healthy glow. Would be a shame to cover it with a blush.
Beautiful in the tropical sun
Protect yourself from negative influences of the sun’s rays. Here’s the most important thing when you stretch out the tropical sun. Use sunscreen with a high protection factor and apply the cream every two hours and after every dip in the ocean. ‘To fight’ the effect mozzarella ‘and look beautiful from day one, you can then use a light foundation, as the Fix and Body’, Michael suggests, ‘a cream colored consisting of 70% water. It covers redness and gives a uniform color, is non-transfer (ie, non-staining) and can therefore also be put on the décolleté, legs and arms. A nice effect is also achieved with bronzing powder, dull or brilliant compositions, each a little ‘more intense’.
The eyes can be rigged a little ‘more than just skiing. ‘It is very beautiful use of bright colors, brilliant pearl in the golden tones of bronze to bring out the best tan,’ says Michael. ‘They give shine and look very open.’
‘For the mouth are, like skiing, natural hues perfect and even here the rule is that it is always important to opt for lipsticks with sunscreen and moisturizing effect.’
‘You should’, Michael concludes, ‘any – for the holiday in the mountains or the sea – always tricks with plastic containers. Can be brought along on skis or on the beach because they weigh little and do not break easily. ‘
