Makeup Legend Sandy Linter Shares Tips for 20s + 30s

We have had the pleasure of interviewing legendary makeup artist Sandy Linter a few times now (check our archives). She is an extremely talented artist who has 'painted on' some of the most beautiful faces in the world.

And what we really adore about Sandy Linter is her accessibility. She never has any airs about her, and she loves to share her gazillion beauty tips.

Sandy Linter has been very busy these days as Lancome's Beauty at Every Age Ambassador, criss-crossing around, making personal appearances at Lancome boutiques and counters. She shares her makeup tips, consults on Lancome beauty products, and trains their makeup artists. In addition, she is a much sought-after makeup pro, creating the gorgeous faces of Eva Longoria, Elizabeth Hurley, and many more.

Sandy owes us a few more articles. We haven't been able to connect as of late, but we recently caught up with her in the pages of People Magazine's Dec. 2008 Special "Sexy Forever--How To Look & Feel Great At Any Age!"

Sandy Linter has some great makeup tips for women in their 20's and 30's.

In your 20's:
1. Do experiment with color
"Crazy yellow eyeshadow? You can pull it off!" at this age, Sandy told People mag. "Break all the rules."

2. Play up your lips
Sandy advises to go with the dark lipstick and super shiny glosses now, because when you get older, lips lose volume, and a deeper tone can be aging.

3. Don't skip foundation
"Even beautiful skin can benefit from it," Sandy say. "It's corrective."

In your 30's
1. Do commit to a color palette
"You should be certain about what shades flatter you at this point," Sandy explains. "You'll know whether or not purple eyeshadow works!"

2. Brighten your lipstick
Again, you can still lay on a red mouth, but stick to the sheerer shades, because the too strong color "can be aging."

3. Don't over-tweeze your eyebrows
"As you age, the hair gets thinner and finer," Sandy says. "If you over-tweeze or wax it all the time, it will never grow back."

Always, sensible and smart advice from one of makeup's very best in the biz.

Thank you, Sandy Linter.
