Holiday Makeup Tips for Baby Boomer Women

By April

There is no time of year as lovely or wonderful, or as stressful as the holiday season. The entire month of December is usually spent in a rush, getting presents together for family and friends, decorating the house and prepping the big meal. And even though we love them, the idea of spending a lot of time with our family and friends can sometimes be stressful as well. We want everything to be perfect! I know that, for myself, when it comes to the holidays, I certainly want to make sure that everything is perfect, and that includes my makeup.

As we get a bit older, our makeup needs change. Everything you learned and perfected about your makeup routine in your 30s and 40s might not work quite as well anymore. You sometimes need to take some extra steps and make an additional effort to make sure that your makeup looks as flawless and natural as it did years before. Thankfully, Azul is here to help, equipping you with the absolute best in skincare and makeup products available today, courtesy of Trilogy Laboratories!


Before artists start to paint, the first thing they think of is their canvas. The condition of your skin is the most important factor to consider before applying makeup over the holiday season. The better condition your skin is in, the better your makeup will look.

When we get older, our skin can become drier, requiring moisturizer to rehydrate the skin and promote anti-aging. If you want the most luxurious and effective moisturizer out there today, you want to try the Azul Blue Diamond Timeless Moisturizer. Not only will it rehydrate your skin, it will also help minimize wrinkles and fight against age spots, without feeling even a bit oily!


A canvas should be smooth, and free of dirt and debris. When you put on makeup, your skin should be as fresh and smooth as possible. That’s why using an exfoliator is such a great idea. A solid exfoliator should clear your skin of any loose dead skin cells and help prevent flaking. The Azul Blue Diamond Enzyme Polish is the perfect at-home exfoliator for your skin. Using gentle micro-sudsing jojoba beads, our Enzyme Polish denatures the proteins that hold dead skin cells together, allowing them to be removed from your skin without any irritation. The Enzyme Polish is perfect for all skin types and is an essential part of any anti-aging skincare regimen.

You’ve moisturized and exfoliated, now it’s time to prime your skin. Any primer should minimize the appearance of visible pores, fine lines and wrinkles. A good primer should help modulate melanin production, to brighten your skin. A GREAT primer should help promote collagen production beneath the skin. Our Mineral Makeup Lift and Lock Mineral Primer does ALL of that, providing you the smoothest possible surface for makeup application.


Now that you’ve taken care of the canvas, it’s time to start applying the makeup! A great foundation is, well, the foundation of makeup! You may be very loyal to the same foundation you’ve been using for years now, but you should realize that, as you get older, your skin changes. The foundation you used in your 40s might not work as well as it used to. For our money, the gold standard of foundation for any age is mineral makeup. Our Liquid Lift Mineral Foundation provides you with incredible, natural-looking coverage, while allowing your own color to shine through. Formulated with crushed mineral pigments, it helps to reflect light and keep your skin look radiant. Not only is our liquid lift super hydrating, it also has skin care product properties! It contains a copper bonded peptide that increases collagen production.  So while you are wearing the foundation, it is stimulating collagen. Truly Makeup with Benefits! Our Liquid Lift Foundation comes in five different shades, so you can find the perfect one for your skin. And to top it all off, it even provides SPF 20 skin protection. You can choose to wear our Pressed Mineral Powder on top of the liquid foundation if you want more coverage.

No one should feel self-conscious during the holidays. With some of these tips, along with Azul Blue Diamond products and Mineral Makeup, your face will look flawless for the holidays, and all year ‘round!

We hope that you have an absolutely wonderful holiday season with your family and friends!
