Glowy Makeup Tutorial (From a Former Beauty Editor)

By Estelle Erasmus

I might have mentioned before that I am a former beauty editor and co-author of a best-selling beauty book called Beautiful Skin: Every Woman’s Guide to Looking Her Best at Any Age (Adams Media), which I wrote under my maiden name.

Beautiful Skin

I have wanted to share some of my best beauty secrets for a while. It took me several hours to learn how to use iMovie (and I’m still learning) and then add titles on YouTube, but I think I figured it out.

So…drumroll… here is my first makeup tutorial. You’ll want to watch it if you want a glowy day makeup look, using highlighters.

Let me know what you think (and what tips worked for you, or didn’t) and subscribe to my YouTube Channel at EstelleSobelErasmus. I’m also quite active on twitter at @EstelleSErasmus

  1. I really like the copper under the eyes! I have found that black is too harsh but not sure what light colour would be good for someone who is a natural blonde going gray. Suggestions?

  2. I need all the help I can get! I rarely apply make up but as I start getting older I think I may need to, just a bit;) I have no idea where to start!

    1. Gina,
      I’m so glad you find them to be helpful. I’ve really fine-tuned my makeup routine as I’ve gotten older. The black under my eyes which I used to rock in my 20s and 30s just doesn’t work anymore.

  3. I swear by Bare Minerals (for YEARS) as my foundation. I have the same routine: Cover Girl makes a great base to keep your makeup staying longer (and it’s much less expensive, too), various Maybelline eyeshadows, Estee Lauder (I like supporting them cause they are good to Israel) mascara, Bobbie Brown blush and various lipsticks. This routine is more current since my skin has changed at age 55; I need to change the way I do makeup. I also have no patience to spend a lot of time doing it!

    Thanks for this video. It’s a great service and you look great.

    1. Thanks Cathy. I’m not a makeup artist, but I think that my practical tips can make a difference. I think your routine is fine, but a few tweaks can bring it from good to fabulous, and you deserve that!

    1. Hi Mary Ellen,
      Thanks so much for your feedback. I hope my tips have helped you. We should do whatever it takes to feel and look our best at any age.

  4. I’m a makeup junkie 😉 I have Mary Lou Manizer, but prefer Bare Minerals Stroke of Light, usually. It lights you up, but isn’t shimmery. Since I have oilky skin, I tend to sjy away from much shimmer. Over from SITS.

    1. I just ordered Bare Minerals Stroke of Light (1). It looks more like an under eye lightener though. I used to use one from Prescriptives. We can see.
