Gatsby girls want to keep their pretty porcelain complexions so Dr. Lewinn by Kinerase Instant perfecting B. B. Cream Suncream is what you want to slather on. It’s broad spectrum with a SPF of 15 and it moisturizes and attacks fine lines even as it protects against the damage the sun can do. I loved how soft and hydrated my skin felt!
Of course you want your facial powder to keep makeup dewy without that dry powdery look, so you can dance at those fabulous East Egg parties until dawn. Jurlique Rose Silk Finishing Powder is infused with botanicals to minimize shine and oiliness and to keep your skin looking radiant. I usually don’t use powder because it seems to scream, “Look at all the lines!” but this powder made my skin look flawless.
The eyes have it for modern day flapper girls–with Kinerase Restructuring firming eye cream. This goes on silky smooth and best of all, when you use it at night, it stays put and does not migrate into your eyes so you wake up looking like a creature from the Black Lagoon.It’s got a lovely creamy texture and since I’m perfume-allergic, I really appreciate that it has no scent.
Bosley Professional Strength Hairspray can keep those roaring twenty bobs in perfect place. It has no stiff or sticky feel and it kept my ringlets bouncy all day!
For the prettiest pucker, you will want to try Wet N Wild Megalast Liquid Lip Colors. I loved and test drove two shades, which stayed on through a pizza and a shake and kept my lips soft and subtle.
To finish your look, try painting your nails with Duri’s new collection called Once Upon A Dream. These shades are soft, pretty and ideal for the warmer months. Colors go on opaque and last for several days without chipping. Only $6 a bottle!
