A beauty tip from Mary, my makeup artist

I asked my hair and makeup artist, Mary Curren, if she might share some of her beauty tips and here’s one that works really well for me.

Mary’s seasonal tip:

Heading into the winter season and still maintaining a nice healthy glow of the skin can be a challenge for many. Using the right bronzer or tinted moisturizers can really aid in getting the look you desire. There are so many good products on the market that can help you obtain the sun-kissed look without the damage of ultra-violet rays. For Martha's complexion, we have been using the Stila Sheer Color tinted moisturizer with an SPF of 15. After applying that, we reach for MAC Matte Bronze Bronzing Powder for an added “pop” of color. You’ll find that applying the bronzer as a light contour onto the cheekbones and then under the jaw line, blending downward on the neck, can really enhance your look during the long months of winter.
