Less is more when it comes to makeup!
1. Natural eyebrows are best.
Drawn on, dark eyebrows are best left to the youngsters. Avoid trying to recreate the eyebrows that looked amazing when you were 20! Women older than 50 tend to lose definition in their eyebrows, so it is best to leave the eyebrows to mother nature
2. Avoid heavy eye makeup.
Topliner, eyeliner and heavy powdery eyeshadow will all draw the wrong sort of attention to the eye area. Instead, use a lightweight cream eyeshadow in a barely- there shade. This will make your eyes ‘pop’ and won’t sit in the creases.
3. Eyelashes are beautiful.
Embrace the eyelash! Eyelash curlers work wonders for opening up the eyes and making you look awake. And a slick of good quality mascara is a great finishing touch.
4. Use highlighter sparingly.
Don’t overuse highlighter. Instead, use it where the light would naturally reflect off your face, like the eyebrow bone, cheekbones and on the bridge of the nose.
5. Don’t OD on foundation.
Most women tend to invest in heavier foundation as they get older which is a mistake. Heavy foundation can sit in your creases and make them look more pronounced. Avoid foundation altogether if you can, a great moisturiser and highlighter will look much fresher.
If you just can’t live without it make time to experiment with something lightweight and find the exact right shade. Matching your skin tone is key.
6. Choose a wearable lip colour.
Purple and neon pink were probably your favourite in the 70’s. But now its time to choose a shade that’s easy to wear and suits your skin tone. Choose a sheer and allow your natural skin tone to show through for a colour unique to you.
