Christie Brinkley’s Guide to Looking Young
Christie Brinkley knows a thing or two about looking forever young. READ: Emmy Award Winning Makeup Artist Reveals 8 Great Drugstore Finds At age 60, the model easily outshines starlets half her age with her flawless features and gorgeous bod. And while Brinkley is genetically blessed, she’s also a pro at accentuating her best features. Her best beauty secret? Her full cheeks. “My British friends used to say, ‘Eh fat face! How ya doing?’” explains the statuesque blonde bombshell to Into The Gloss. “But, in the long run, it’s very anti-aging to have a rounder face. Otherwise you can get quite angular and sunken faster. But I’m actually grateful to be aging–consider the alternatives! Every year I’m still here I’m like ‘Yay!’ And I’m getting more familiar with things to avoid; I Google every single ingredient in everything I use.” READ: Christie Brinkley Dishes on Skincare Secrets Brinkley also reveals that she makes the most out of her round cheeks by always using blush, specifically Laura Mercier Illuminating Quad in Mocha. As for too-thick foundation to hide pesky lines? Forget about it. Brinkley prefers keeping things simple by merely using a brush and filling in only the areas that are blotchy or discolored with the help of Alcone Foundations palette. However, stopping time in its tracks isn’t just about camouflaging with makeup. Brinkley also tells the beauty site that she relies on neighborhood drugstores to maintain her gorgeous glow. “I use the Jergens Natural Glow, which actually gives you a little color,” says Brinkley on her shopping finds. “I usually do the Medium to Tan, but you should always start with the Fair to Medium and go from there…And if I’m not using my own face washes, I use Olay Regenerist Cream Cleanser. “ READ: Best Drugstore Products For Makeup Removal Brinkley actually loves the Olay product so much, that while developing her own skincare line, she brought a bottle to her formulators, telling them “This is what you’re up against.” “The Olay is good stuff,” she adds. “I come home sometimes with a lot of makeup on, and it just cuts right through it without stinging or anything.” It’s also just as important to add a pop of color to one’s face, creating an illuminating effect.

You can always go bare instead for a similar effect. “If you want your lips to look big and have fullness, there’s just something about a nude lip,” she explains. “I have a drawer full of nudes, my favorite being Sweet Dreams by Nars.” READ: How to Do Your Makeup Like a Victoria's Secret Model What a wealth of beautiful knowledge!
