I personally feel that with age, a woman becomes more graceful and with her wrinkles comes a beauty in her that is remarkable. Women should be celebrated no matter what their age!
Some women over 40 believe in staying natural but for those who love to apply make up, here are some simple rules to follow…
1. Use foundation with light consistency
The most recommended ones are a foamy or a creamy foundation. There are loads of different types of foundation, such as the Estee Lauder double wear, so it is important you get the right one for you. Ultimately, you want to create a glowing complexion that draws attention away from any problem areas that you might have. After all, no one will be paying attention to your Sagging jowls if you have luminous skin.
2. Choose to use a creamy concealer
Over the time, the dark circles tend to become darker so the concealer should be mandatory for mature ladies.
3. Use a blush in a natural shade
As time passes, the skin will take on a reddish hue so is better to avoid reddish, brownish or pink shades of the blush.
4. Take good care of your eyebrows
Eyebrows plucked in the correct manner can rejuvenate a face with a few years. To cover the empty spaces, use an eyebrow pencil with a shade or two darker than the natural shade of your hair.
5. Take care of your eyelashes
As we grow older, our eyelashes tend to become shorter so is important to use long lash mascara. It is also important to make use of an eyelash serum for the fullest, longest lashes possible. Also it is advised to use black mascara and not a brown one, to highlight the white in your eyes. Avoid applying mascara on the lower eyelashes because it will only highlight the dark circles.
6. Do not use a dark eyeliner
It is more indicated to use a brown or grey one, because these shadows do not highlight the wrinkles or make your eyes look smaller.
7. Stay away from dark coloured lipsticks
These may looked great when you were 20 but as time passes, lips get thinner and a dark lipstick will only make them look even thinner. It is better to use peach or light pink lipsticks.
