Makeup Tutorials For Older Women

Everyone, but especially women, dread getting older. Helen Mirren, Meryl Streep and other older celebrities are not only aging gracefully but also looking better than they ever have. These ladies adapt their makeup to their older skin to look radiant and beautiful.

1. Selecting the right foundation color

Nothing is worse than having a foundation that doesn’t match your neck and face. A foundation that’s too light can make your skin look lifeless and obvious. However, a foundation with a darker tone will make you appear heavy and dull. You will add years to your face if you choose a foundation that is too light or dark.

Look at your wrist veins to find the right foundation color for you. If your veins are blue, you need a foundation with a pink or cool tone. If you have greener veins, then you need a foundation that is yellow-based/warmer in tone.

Most make-up brands now offer cool and warm tones in addition to a wide range of foundation colors. This makes it easier for you to choose the right foundation. Dior and No.7, for example, offer a service that will determine the best shade for you.

How to choose the best foundation finish

Power foundations tend to have a matte finish, which is suitable for skins with oilier tans. Liquid foundations provide a more dewy finish that suits skins with a drier texture. Understanding which foundation is right for your skin type is an important part of your makeup routine.

Matte products can make the skin look duller and older. They also tend to stick to even the lightest facial hair. Liquid foundations can also be unflattering, as they can settle into fine lines or highlight areas that we’d rather conceal.

Tinted moisturizers and BB or CC creams are the best products to use on mature skin. All of these products work better for mature skin because they have a subtle finish, and are able to enhance your natural features while not bringing attention to imperfections.

A primer or mask can be used to smooth and plump the skin before applying foundation. A smoother, more full-bodied skin is a better base for makeup. Beauty Pro’s Collagen Brightening Vitamin C Mask is a great choice for a luxurious and quick face mask. It will add radiance to dull, dry skin.

3. How to define your eyebrows

As we age, our eyebrows also thin. The thinning of the brows is a sure sign that a person is getting older. It can make women appear much older. Filling in eyebrows can be intimidating for many women, as it is a new concept. If you don’t know where to start with your eyebrows, a powder product is a better option than an eyebrow pencil.

The Fab Brows Kit is a great product for beginners as it has everything you need to achieve perfect, foolproof brows. Each kit comes with your choice of five powder shades, a dual-ended brush, a mirror, and six brow stencils. When choosing between two colors, always choose the lighter shade. It is easier to build up the color than to overdo it with a darker color.

4. Add color and volume to your lips

As we age, our hair does not thin as much. Our lips also become thinner. They may even appear unappealing. If you want to add color and fullness, choose a lipstick that is no darker than the natural colour of your lips and then finish off with some lip gloss. Lip gloss can instantly make lips look fuller. Stick to a shade of lipstick that is not too dark or too light. This will prevent your lipstick from bleeding and highlight any fine lines around your mouth.

We recommend Dr Paw Paw’s soothing balm as a product that is both versatile and reliable. This multi-purpose, vitamin-rich balm can add colour and shine to your lips as well as your cheeks. The balm is available in many subtle shades. We love the tinted peach-pink balm, which is perfect for older ladies.

5. Eyes – Less is More

Eyeshadow can be a real nightmare for older women. Especially when it comes to applying it on wrinkled eyelids. The right eyeshadow can enhance the colour of your eyes without causing wrinkles. The easiest and most effective way to highlight a face’s best feature is by using a neutral eyeshadow swept across your lid.

If you have hazel eyes, choose shades that are brown/golden. To bring out your green eyes, try adding a little purple or burgundy. Champagne shades are perfect for those with blue-eyed women. Try a neutral shade for a night-time look. Dust a bit of MAC Pigment Shadow on top to add a little sparkle.
