It focuses on three BFF boomer babies (Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and the ever-hilarious Wendie Malick) who're being overlooked and even traded in for newer models in Los Angeles (yes, that means D.I.V.O.R.C.E for one of them ... thank goodness not me.) Their lives improve immensely after moving to Cleveland, where they're noticed, appreciated and feel downright attractive.
Since we can't all head to Cleveland, I asked celebrity makeup artist and Ramy Cosmetic Company CEO Ramy Gafni how we boomer babes can add some sizzle to our looks this summer. He says "It's all about sun protection, faking a healthy glow, and keeping it youthful and fresh."
How? Ramy recommends:
When I crave a deeper color, I layer gloss or a protective balm like Smart Girls Who Surf's SPF 15 hydrator ($3.99 at SmartGirlsWhoSurf.com) with my lipstick. Made with all-natural ingredients like Organic Palm Oil, Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Vitamin E, it helps turn any lipstick into a moisture maker and comes in cherry (my favorite) and vanilla flavors.
Other beauty buys that can up your personal heat index include:
Paula's Choice Barely There Sheer Matte Tint - Gives you a healthy glow and guards against sun damage by blending a lightly tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 sunscreen. Besides hiding imperfections, this little multi-tasker helps keep skin feeling soft and looking natural. It comes in four shades, including Sheer Neutral (which provides perfect coverage for my on-the-lighter side skin), Sheer Fair, Sheer Ivory and Sheer Beige. Gentle enough for any skin type, the hard-working fragrance- and additive-free formula includes mineral-based UVA/UVB protection. ($14.95 at Paulaschoice.com)
L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Color Cream Duo - Includes a matte, rose-colored blush and a pearly highlighter. Use the blush to accent your cheekbones. Follow with the pearly shade on the apples of your checks, your eyes, anywhere you want to catch the light and look dewy fresh. Made for sensitive skin, this creamy, lightly scented pair contains softening Peony extract and comes in a thin, oh-so pretty mirrored compact great for on-the-go. ($16 at Usa.loccitane.com)
Ramy Perfect Eye Wand - Makes it a breeze to apply eye shadow and liner by putting both in one easy-to-use gel pen. What's more, you don't have to worry about a color choice since the creamy, neutral formulas are designed to compliment any skin tone. Rather than black or brown, the liner is a nice mahogany while the creamy shadow is a bronzy, light brown. For a natural, daytime look, line only the upper lashline and use shadow in the crease of the eyelid. For evening glam, go for a quick, smokey eye by lining both the upper and lower lash lines and smudging shadow over your entire lid as well as over the liner on your lower lash line. ($24 at Ramy.com)
Ramy Perfect Brow Wand - Combines taupe brow filler and a colorless highlighter in one handy gel pen. They must call it "perfect" because the waterproof filler works for any hair color from pale blonde to brunette like mine to black or even silver. Thanks to my sparse brows, I am a pro when it comes to fillers but this was my first stab at using a brow highlighter. I was surprised to find a few touches of light could be such an eye opener! ($28 at Ramy.com)
Ramy Pure Juice Highlighter - Adds a nice glow to eyes, cheeks or lips. Plus, this sheer, pearl-colored cream is waterproof and comes in a mini, mirrored compact that easily slides into even the smallest bag. ($28 at Ramy.com)
Smashbox's Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener - Helps make your eyes standout by pairing two antioxidant-rich, light-infusers in one pencil. Use the highlighter end to give the inner corners of your eyes and brow bone a nice glow; line the lower inner rims of eyes with the brightener end for definition. Made with vitamins C and E as well as moisturizing coconut oil, these formulas can help make your eyes look bigger and wider so your look pops! ($22 at Smashbox.com)
