Sponsored feature in association with Studio 10
How much make up do you own? Be honest…..how much do you own, actually use and can admit really suits your skin? How many times do you get taken in by a shiny new lipstick, only to get home and discover it shows up every line on your lips and every wrinkle around your mouth? Disappointing and depressing right? Well, Studio 10 pride themselves on ageless beauty, on using formulas and consistencies that suit more maturing skin, especially those of us forty and above.
|Studio 10 Ageless Beauty|
Regular readers of my blog will know I often feature Studio 10 and they are some of my most popular blog posts, which prove, more mature women are looking for more mature make up. It is so easy to get stuck in a rut of wearing the same thing day in day out, year in year out and kind of not thinking about whether it suits us anymore, because it has become a habit.
Studio 10 is an innovative brand created in 2014 by beauty insider Grace Fodor. She prides herself on creating products for more mature skin that are age perfecting, skin perfecting and help us look and feel our best with just a few very clever items.
These products are so well made and so easy to use, they will become part of your daily routine. Grace used her industry knowledge and with the help of dermatologists and top make up artists was able to create a range that can give us all the skills to correct and conceal the signs of ageing, whilst giving us that youthful, peachy glow. To read more about Grace Fodor please go HERE and read an Interview I had with her last year. With a huge online and High Street presence, Studio 10 are also readily available via Home Shopping Chanel QvcUK. Here you can purchase Studio 10 products at incredibly reduced prices and with a thirty day money back guarantee making them a no brainer in my opinion.
Ahead of an incredibly exciting one hour long show this coming Saturday 29th July at 3pm in which Grace Fodor herself will be presenting the products, I want to share four incredibly fantastic deals for you to look out for.
Youth Lift Glow-Plexion 15ml –
|Studio 10 Youth Lift Glow-Plexion|
One of the most flattering things you can do for your skin is always look glowing and have that lit-from-within luminosity about you. It just adds a youthful look to an ageing, dull looking complexion. Now, unless you are Beyoncé and happen to have a light box and wind machine following you around, you have to create that illusion with great skincare, hydrated skin and fab make up. This is exactly where Youth Lift Glow comes into play. This is your perfect one stop shop product that does a multitude of things but ultimately lifts the complexion and makes you look, dewy and brighter.
|Studio 10 Youth Lift Glow-Plexion|
This is your primer, radiance crème, illuminator and highlighter all in one. Containing Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamins C & E this hydrates as well as illuminates. Containing a special binding technology this holds on to the skin making it budge proof, easy to mix into your foundation or body creams and stay in place until you take it off. I love to use this in so many ways for a “Grown up” highlight, this is my go to, especially on my dehydrated skin. I love to use this as a primer to moisturise and prime my skin, also after my foundation I use this as my cheekbone and brow bone highlighter and on sunny days I love it mixed in with my body lotion and applied to my shins and shoulders. A multitasking must have for mature skin. You can purchase this product HERE Item No: 232327 RRP £28.00 QVC £18.96
Radiance Glow Bronzing Veil & Travel Brush –
|Studio 10 Bronzer & Travel Brush|
If you are a regular reader of Back to you Beauty you will know that this exact bronzer featured in last years post My top 5 High Street Autumn/Winter Bronzers. I absolutely adore this product. Set in sleek packaging, this incredibly light bronzer sits beautifully on more mature, dry skin without caking or clogging the skin. It is jet milled, making it super fine, and feels silky upon application then light as air when on the skin. I also adore how this comes with its perfect match highlighter which can be used on the cheeks bones, under and over the brow and lift the complexion. If my skin is incredibly dull, or I am not feeling well and don’t even want to apply foundation, I apply a dusting of this over my face neck and décolleté and instantly I look healthier. Infused with D’Orientine, this helps to delay the visible signs of ageing. A wonderful bronzer for all year use that is easily blend able, buildable, perfect as an eyeshadow and great on all skin types. This is an absolute winner.
This item also comes with a super soft, double ended brush which has a tapered end, perfect for carving out your cheeks if you fancy a little light contouring, and a more rounded end to apply the bronzer all over. A great size that is big enough to feel substantial but small enough to fit in your make up bag. QVC Item No: 233814 RRP £40.00 QVC £28.00
Age Reverse Lip Perfecting Liner & Plumping Gloss –
|Studio 10 LipLiner|
As we age, we start to loose the shape of our lips. They can become thin in texture and in shape and that once voluptuous pout can suddenly look quite harsh and stern. The Studio 10 Age Reverse Lip Perfecting Liner pencil is a holy grail product for me ( in fact I own four) and makes such a HUGE difference to the look and shape of my lips. This is a product you absolutely have to see to believe. Infused with Coconut Oil, and anti-oxidant Vitamins C & E to hydrate, condition and nourish the lips, this is a super soft lip pencil. On one end you have a beautiful, natural, pink lip shade and on the other a highlight shade. I outline my lips with the pink end before applying my lipstick and then use the highlighter end to contour the lip by applying to the outer corners of the lip and also trace around the cupids bow! It is so, so, clever! It adds definition, shape, stops lip colour from bleeding and makes the lips looks full. Whilst I cannot promise you a full on Marilyn Monroe pout, you will achieve a fuller, more youthful looking mouth, in a few easy steps. This is an absolute must have for me. A little tip is : Use this even if you are only applying a clear lip balm as it looks super natural and gives a beautiful shape to your lips even without lipstick or gloss.
Plumping Lip Gloss in Rose –
|Studio 10 Plumping LipGloss in Rose|
If sticky lipgloss infuriates you, as it does me, then this is perfect for you. It has a really lovely formula that makes it apply like a dream to the lips without that awful, tacky feeling. Enriched with Omega-3 rich Plankton Extract to protect and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines, whilst refining the lip texture and contour, this leaves the lips looking smooth and plump. It has a slight, very slight, tingly sensation upon application and as it contains Hyaluronic Acid, it really hydrates the lips too.
|Studio 10 Plumping LipGloss in Rose|
The colour is a very natural flush of pink, that looks beautiful on all skin types and is very easy to wear any time of the day. This sells out time and time again on the Studio 10 website so if you love it, this is the perfect chance to get it. QVC Item No: 227715 RRP £42.00 QVC £24.00
6-in-1 Perfect Lash Mascara Duo –
|Studio 10 6-in-1 Perfect Lash Mascara|
If you love the look of big, luscious lashes, but don’t want to look like a doll, then this product is wonderful for this. Double ended with a fab big brush one end, to create those dramatic lashes and a comb brush the other, that is perfect to define those lower lashes, this is a wonderful mascara. This 6 – in – 1 mascara does everything you could want without you needing to apply separate mascaras. It nourishes, conditions, defines, lengthens, thickens and volumises the lases in a couple of strokes. Beautifully black and glossy, the mascara grips onto the lashes and does not budge until you take it off. QVC Item No : 233813 RRP £48.00 QVC £30.00
|Before and After wearing Studio 10|
For me, this range is wonderful on my maturing skin. As you can see from my before and after photo above, in which I am wearing only the products listed above and the Studio 10 foundation, this brand effortlessly creates a better version of ourselves in just a few simple steps. We cannot erase our lines and wrinkles and ageing is an inevitable part of life. We can choose products that can give us that quick fix to give the illusion of a better, more youthful looking skin and this award winning brand was created for that reason.
