Today’s Focus: Fresh spring Makeup Tutorial for Silver Beauties
This fresh spring makeup tutorial is part of my regular series of non-toxic makeup looks perfect mature skin and the video below offers a detailed step by step explanation.
This look was created especially for gray-haired beauties by Christy Coleman, Chief Artistic Officer and Product Developer at Beautycounter.
Christy is transitioning to gray, so she recently shared a tutorial dedicated to her fellow silver sisters, like me. I replicated the look after taking notes on her tutorial and posted my results on Instagram shortly after. Christy not only commented on my post, but also sent me a direct message telling me I did a great job and she can’t wait until her hair looks like mine. I felt like a celebrity! LOL. It’s the little things, right?

This is a much longer, more detailed tutorial than usual. Let me know what you think!
All Products used today for this fresh spring tutorial are non-toxic and cruelty-free.
For today’s fresh spring makeup tutorial:
I prepped my skin with the Countertime Mineral Boost Hydrating Essence, which Christy describes as a facial in a bottle. It really is luxurious. It is applied after cleansing. . . just dispense a few drops into your palms and press into skin. I followed this with the Counter + All Bright C Serum. This is sunshine in a bottle- it brightens, adds radiance and evens skin tone. It also helps grip foundation, according to Christy.
MAKEUP IN ORDER OF APPLICATION:
- Skin Twin Featherlight Foundation in light 230
- Skin Twin Creamy Concealer in fair 2 for brightening and Light 1 for extra coverage.
- Eyebrow pencil in medium
- All-Over Eye Brush for lid application
- Color Pinch Cream Blusher in Hibiscus for cheek color
- Illuminating Cream Highlighter in Pearl Glow for cheek highlight, on Cupid’s bow, and center of eyelid
- Mattifying Powder for under eye, eyelid, tip of nose
That’s it. I hope you like it. I love using contour now that I see how easy it is to accomplish. I always made a mess of it with powders.
