{Giveaway} $250+ worth of Lancome products and the Makeup Wakeup beauty guide

Celeb makeup artist and Lancome spokeswoman, FOF Sandy Linter, is giving away her 4 fave products for FOFs and her new beauty guide, Makeup Wakeup: Revitalizing Your Look at Any Age. To enter, answer this question in the comments below: If you had plastic surgery, would you tell people or keep it a secret?

[Plus! Sandy Linter bares all about her plastic surgery. Read the entire interview here]

Thank you for entering. This contest is now closed.


What you win: Lancôme Absolue Bx lotion, Lancôme Progres eye cream, Lancôme Definicils Waterproof mascara, Lancôme Bi-Facil eye makeup remover

What is your own beauty routine?
I use Lancôme’s Galatee Conforte cleansing milk and their skin tonic called Tonique Douceuer. Then, at night, I use a cream called Platineum Night. I use either a liquid moisturizer from Lancôme, or, if my skin is super dry, I’ll use something called Precious Cells. I just started using Genifique serum on top of the cream because I’m going on a book tour and I’ll need something that’s good for airplane travel. They also have a cream called Progres that is really enriching and does the trick under my eyes.

You like to layer a lot of different products?
Not really. I don’t like thick layering of treatment creams underneath foundation. I hate that look of too much moisturizer — your face looks greasy and when you put your foundation on, you have streaks and caking. I like it all to look nice and smooth. I want my moisturizer and foundation to mix well together.

What foundation do you like?
Lancôme just came out with a foundation called Teint Miracle which is excellent. Every now and then I still use a foundation by Armani. Both formulations are liquid. I’m better off in a liquid than a cream. I’ve found darker toned skin looks better in cream foundation, and lighter toned skin looks better in liquid.

You’ve made up thousands of women over fifty. What is a common beauty blunder you see in this demographic?
A lot of women are still wearing ‘oil free’ moisturizer because it’s what they used when they were young and breaking out. That’s not for you anymore once you hit this age group. You’re not going to get a pimple.

How’s a 20-year-old sales woman behind the department store cosmetics counter going to help me, an FOF?
Many of them have the product lines memorized. They have charts that explain which products are for which age group and which type of skin. It’s all done by science. It’s not about the personality or age of the girl behind the counter.

Do you have a few tips for enhancing your eyes without surgery?
Do your eye makeup first before any face makeup. It prevents double duty cleanup later when your eye shadow flakes fall onto the under-eye and cheek area. Also, use primer to prevent your eye makeup from feathering and creasing.

Help! I have hormonal acne. What do I do to conceal it?
Misting an airbrush foundation can make spots, zits and excess redness virtually disappear.

I’m interested in getting a facelift. Anything I should be particularly wary about?
‘Lunchtime facelifts’ claiming no pain, no scars, no downtime are BS.

    I would tell people…i can’t keep a secret. Who needs it when you can get your face done by Sandy. Sandy Linter is a pioneer in the business. I had the opportunity for her to do my makeup and I looked absolutely gorgeous. She knows how to make it happen!

I don’t pretend to diminish Lancome products but, at my age, 52, I am looking for more than Lancome offers. There are other companies less commercialized which are more concerned for the potency of the ingredients deliver on your skin, like Obagy, Dr. Perricone, Kinestase, Peter Roth, etc. I suggest to try one of these and you will the difference.

    If I had plastic surgery, I would want it to be subtle and I think I would keep it to myself. It’s really no one’s business. But if were going to have something dramatic done in the future, I would not mind admitting to the surgery, but I don’t think I would bring it up in conversation or make a big deal out of it. The truth for me is that I’m not fond of surgery and don’t like the idea of being put under so it’s probably unlikely I would have surgery, but it’s a great fantasy to think about!

    Question: If you had plastic surgery, would you tell people or keep it a secret?

    Answer: It depends. I will be 50 in February, and I am an actress/model who looks 35 and plays parts in films in that age group. To keep that look, besides eating right and exercising, I have hair extensions and I do botox and fillers. Noone seems to notice, I just look refreshed to my friends and family. The closest ones know, but In the film/modeling biz… they don’t need to know – I get cast based on what I look like. It would be the same if I had surgery, and at some point I will need to get it done. I am putting it off until I absolutely have to.

    I rely on using GREAT products, and am always willing to try something new!

    I think it is a personal choice whether or not someone chooses for whatever reason to have plastic surgery. Never judge anyone until you have walked a mile in their shoes. As whether or not to tell once again that is a personal choice. You should be happy with yourself or the inside but if plastic surgery makes someone feel happy on the outside as well who are we to judge. Everyone is different that is what makes women so interesting!

    I would definitely tell. It would be obvious & I also would want to know what my friends think.

    I wouldn’t tell anyone except my best friend and son that I was going to have it done,, but if someone asked me later, I wouldn’t lie about it.

    Definitely tell. I would talk about it before having it done to get input. Then talk about it after, telling my experience.

    Yes, I think I would tell. More than likely people are going to know, so I think I would rather go ahead and save them the time of having to “whisper among themselves”.

    I would tell. No point in lying about it. I think it would be obvious that some “work” had been done.
