Pamper Your Skin
Hydration: When you’re skin starts becoming drier it means that it needs hydration. You can rehydrate your skin with serums, primers or foundation.
Smaller Pores: Your pores will become naturally larger. A Clarisonic skin brush can be used to clean your skin and visually diminish the size of your pores.
Makeup Primer: Primers work beautifully for older women. Make sure you choose one that will hydrate your skin. Primers smooth over your pores and fine lines.
You deserve a beautiful complexion for life!
Concealing And Covering
Once you’ve prepped your skin, use these makeup tips for mature women to conceal and give your skin a smoother appearance with makeup. There are two great ways to achieve maximum results with your makeup. Use a professional makeup product to spot conceal and then use the newest products to even out your skin tone and get the healthy look.
Dark Circles: The skin under your eyes naturally thins and when it does you are more apt to see discoloration. There are some very good products available to counteract deep discoloration and cover dark circles. First spot cover with either a deep yellow/orange concealer and then cover with foundation.
Sunless Tanning: When you want healthy looking skin in an instant then grab a sunless tanner or your favorite bronzing product. They can be used year round to create a face tan and the best part is that they help even out your complexion while adding back a little bit of color.
Foundation Makeup Tips
For Older Women
Foundation is the one makeup item that gets very tricky to work with as your skin ages. You’re trying to cover discoloration and at the same time trying to diminish fine lines. That means it’s time to go sheer and yet you still need to cover up. Here are a few makeup tips for mature women that will give you a method for getting the best from foundation products.
1. Spot conceal with a professional concealer product like CoverFX or Dermablend first.
2. Take a little your favorite foundation in the palm of your hand and add a couple drops of moisturizer to it.
3. Dab it on your face and blend lightly with either your fingers or a makeup sponge.
Once you have your foundation on then go back with a clean white makeup wedge and lightly blend around the hairline again. This is the one area where most women make the mistake of not blending enough.
Foundation on the neck is optional. For some women it works, for others it doesn’t. Try it and see which works better for you.
If you find that sheer makeup foundation works for you, then switch products for ease of use and try a new foundation that lists “hydrating” or “lifting” on the bottle.
It’s natural that your complexion will go through a number of changes in your life. Just as you found it necessary to try different cosmetics to address special skin needs during your teenage years, there will also be other times throughout your life when it’s time to change your products and the manner in which you apply them. Makeup tips for mature women are designed to do just that – Use what works for you.
