SCHLIP’S TIPS: “Fall” Into Beauty with Joanna Schlip
Physicians Formula’s Resident Artist & Hollywood Glamour Guru
Joanna Schlip Offers Her Best Advice
To transition or not to transition … that is the question! Do you forgo a comfortable current regimen for the next fashion-forward look de jour? Or do you cling to the mbeauty past and risk seeming stuck in a rut? Celebrity makeup artist for Physicians Formula, Joanna Schlip shares her tips for always looking seasonally chic.
Start With Cared-For Skin: “It’s no secret that seasonal changes leave skin vulnerable,” Joanna warns. “Nourish it with an oil-free moisturizer, then protect it with an under makeup primer, like the Physicians Formula Mineral Wear® Talc-Free Mineral Correcting Primer SPF 15, to lock-in moisture, smooth the skin and extend cosmetic longevity. It’s an added, lightweight layer of protection with benefits!” ($10.95)
Tone Down That Tan: “Who doesn’t love an Indian Summer? But as the weather gets colder, a too dark faux glow will look out of place,” Joanna advises. Her suggestion is to swap out a deeper bronzer for a lighter, more subtle tone. “Opt for a bronzer that is only one shade darker than natural coloring. This will provide a boost of color and even skin tone for a perfected look while still looking authentic.” Joanna likes the Physicians Formula Bronze Boosting Glow-Boosting Sun Stones, a mélange of stones ranging in color and tone to provide instant and long-term natural-looking color.

Color Chameleon: “Summer is not the only time to have fun with color!” Joanna states. “In the fall I love a bold lip or fun eye to counterpoint the chillier weather and shorter days.” Joanna’s go-to: colored eyeliner. “I’m obsessed with the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Gel CreamLiners! You can wear them bold and bright or subtle and sexy, and they have serious staying power.” Joanna suggests opting for metallic plums, forest greens and glistening coppers – crisp, vivid and seasonal colors that are fun and appropriate.

Brow - Wow: “You can never go wrong with lots of lashes (I love Organic Wear™ Jumbo Lash Mascara for out-to-there lashes!), but brows are going to be a real focus as we move into the fall and winter. A defined, polished and fashionable brow is an easy way to transition, so don’t skip this step, it’s worth it!” Joanna shares.
