An expert makeup artist shares a few tips for women over 50.
Tip 1. Moisturizing products are your best friend
Since skin loses moisture with age, moisturizing regularly—along with drinking lots of water—will help your skin maintain a more youthful appearance. Consider using a hydration-heavy face moisturizer like Boots’ Botanics Radiance Beauty Balm. In addition, using an eye cream such as Estee Lauder’s Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator, can help ward off fine lines.
Tip 2. When it comes to foundation, less is more
If you like to wear foundation, opt for a sheer formula like Clinique’s Perfectly Real Makeup to prevent makeup from settling into fine lines and wrinkles. Some women can even get away with just spot-concealing and don’t need to wear foundation at all.
Tip 3. Avoid any dry or powder-based makeup products
Powder-based foundations, blushes and eye shadows tend to settle in and accentuate wrinkles. Whenever possible, choose cream-based blushes, foundations, eye shadows and concealers for a healthy, radiant appearance. Two of Triplow’s suggestions are Bobbi Brown’s Long-Wear Cream Shadow and Stila’s Convertible Color, which functions as both lipstick and blush.
Don’t forget you are beautiful no mater what you look like!! God loves you and so do we.
