Serum and tinted moisturizer with sunscreen
Next, apply the Instant Lift Serum from Shira. Shira makes the Instant Lift Serum with a polysilicone base to smooth out any lines or large pores for an even porcelain look.
Now you’re ready for Glow Time, a full-coverage tinted moisturizer with SPF 25 from Jane Iredale. Since it’s full coverage, it evens pigmentation. If you are active or outdoors often, it is water resistant to keep you protected. Apply Glow Time Mineral BB Cream with a fluffy powder brush to get an airbrush look. If fingertips are more convenient, that works too. Jane Iredale is a line of mineral make-up that’s anti-irritating and cruelty free. It’s non-comedogenic, hypoallergenic and dermatologist tested. Glow Time goes on with a light, fresh grapefruit scent and then becomes unscented while the cream feels light, comfortable and natural to wear, with just a few drops covering the face. A tube of Jane Iredale’s Glow Time Mineral BB Cream costs around $48.
For light coverage, Jennifer Pham recommends Tizo from Solar Protection. Solar makes this silicon-based product, which gives you a smooth texture and finish with SPF 40.

Brush on your eyeliner as close to your lashes as you can. Jane Iredale carries silver and gold liquid but also black and brown for special occasions.

Don’t forget to curl lashes and then apply Divaderme mascara from Italy for a thick, full glamorous look ($16). Start from the base of your lashes so the product doesn’t weigh down your lashes, keeping them curled. Finish off with Jane Iredale’s PureMoist lipstick in “Kristen.” It’s a rouge color that brightens and completes your look.
