Quick Tips for Makeup Over 50
Want to enhance your natural beauty and get the most age-defying look possible? As we get older our skin naturally changes and for many women our beauty habits stay the same over the years. We want to share some tips and tricks to apply makeup in ways that enhance mature woman’s skin. Good skin care is the key to everything! Be sure to use a moisturizer and if necessary a toner before every makeup application, and also cleanse and moisturize at the end of every day.
Foundation: Use cream or liquid based foundation, never powder on your face. Powder will add excess texture to your skin. Also, for an extra glow you can add a dash of face oil into your cream based foundation. Skin tones can change over time so don’t forget to get yourself matched by a professional.
- If you are not a foundation wearer, introduce yourself to a tinted moisturizer. This product gives a slight tint of color, while also brightening your skin tone and adding moisture.
Concealer is your BEST friend. Use this to hide any dark spots, however leave the wrinkles alone! Concealer will only highlight the wrinkles.
Eyes: Your skin may be aging but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your eyeshadow palettes. However, stick to the light/neutral shades, bright/dark colors can instantly make eyes look smaller. Add a touch of eyeliner on the top lid to make the eyes pop. Less is always MORE.
Eyebrows: Don’t pluck! Let the professionals do the shaping. Also, don’t be afraid to fill your brows in, however do it with a shadow rather than a pencil. This makes the brows softer and more natural looking.
Lips: A good rule is to wear a tone that matches the inner lip or gums.
Blush: No sparkles. No glitter. No powder. If you want to wear blush, we recommend a cream based blush. If you are afraid of applying cream based blushes then stick to the subtle tones.
Please remember these are only tips for mature skin.
If you are going on a date night or a night on the town, you can spice up any of these looks!
Aging is out of your control, how you handle it is in your hands.
