Studio10 – Changing the Face of Ageing – There is nothing to stop the process of ageing, be it physical, mental or our appearance. However, we can embrace this natural process with positivity and confidence, celebrating our achievements, experiences, and value.
Keeping fit, eating a healthy diet, and having a positive outlook on life all contribute to a more fulfilling lifestyle. Maintaining a good skincare routine will have a positive effect on your skin’s appearance and mental wellbeing.
Founder of Studio10 Grace Fodor is on a personal mission to help every woman to look and feel their most beautiful and confident version of themselves – at ANY age. She believes that beauty doesn’t just belong to youth, it is ageless.
Not wanting dressed-up versions of mainstream products that may not be beneficial for mature skin Grace designed minimalist essentials with the best skincare and anti-pollution ingredients. Cruelty-free, paraben-free, dermatologically tested, and vegan friendly.
Her four-step routine – prime, perfect, shade and shape – will fit seamlessly into your morning regime, to help give you flawless skin and lit-from-within radiance, no matter what your age. Women Talking looks at a selection of the range.
Step 1 – Prime – Youth Lift Glow-plexion skin primer
As we age our skin tends to become drier, lacklustre, and becomes more textured.
To create the perfect base for your makeup Studio 10 suggests a primer. This will help to smooth out an uneven skin texture and add a radiance from within that has been lost over time. Studio 10 recommend looking for one with gold rather than silvery tones, as this will look more natural on the skin!
Their complexion-boosting 4-in-1 hydrating primer, radiance crème, illuminator, and highlighter, containing unique ‘binding technology’, ensures makeup stays put for hours, while giving skin a youthful glow.
Formulated for mature skin, the special blend of deeply hydrating hyaluronic acid and firming active ingredients brightens, lifts and tones, while the smooth, creamy, and glitter-free formula instantly minimises pores and evens out the complexion.
This versatile product can be used alone, over moisturised skin, combined with foundation, mixed into your favourite body lotion, or use as a highlighter.
Step 2 – Perfect – It is a cover-up job to correct and conceal redness, blemishes, pigmentation, and skin imperfections for flawless, perfected skin.
Over the years our skin goes through a lot, creating blemishes and pigmentation. As a result, we have more to cover up to achieve flawless skin. Despite BB creams and mineral foundations being great, they often don’t provide the coverage required for more mature skin.
That’s why for the ‘perfect’ step Studio 10 recommend a medium to full coverage foundation, with hydrating properties to nourish the skin throughout the day.
In addition, try the Hydra-Lift I-Corrector. As we mature, eyes become puffier with deeper under-eye circles. Formulated for mature skin, this intense 3-in-1 nourishing eye treatment is to conceal, brighten, soothe, and refresh the delicate eye area.
The ultra-creamy and lightweight texture instantly covers dark circles and brightens the eyes, without drying, caking, or settling into wrinkles.
3 – Shade – For an instant complexion pick-me-up add a flush of healthy colour and glow. This step is about adding back the colour that we lose as we age.
Studio 10 suggest using a peach-toned blush. Their Plumping Blush Glow-plexion is a peach-toned blush with orange pigments that will add warmth to your skin, while the pink tones will brighten your complexion and add a healthy flush of colour.
4 – Shape – Here we look at adding shape and definition to enhance features and create a natural looking lift.
As we age our brows tend to become sparse and our skin loses collagen and elasticity, meaning lips lose their shape and become thinner. To add lost definition, try Brow Perfecting Liner, using short hair-like strokes in an upward motion, to fill in the brows and frame your face. Formulated for mature skin, the pencil is enriched with vitamin E, as well as plant and fruit waxes, for a creamy but smudge-free finish.
Then to create balance, you should also line the lips. Try the Age Reverse Perfecting Lip Liner, using the rose shade along the lip line, then the cream shade to highlight and line the Cupid’s bow to accentuate shape further.
Contouring is a quick and easy way to add structure by defining facial features. The principle is to use shade and light to create natural contours – light shades (highlighter) will bring features forward while darker shades (contouring products or a darker toned foundation) will make them recede.
