Best Makeup Aging Skin
Primer – a beautiful, flawless makeup begins with a good base and it is not solely relying on foundation.
You need a primer for your face. A primer works to fill over lumps and bumps, creating a smooth skin for the makeup to stay on and last longer.
Simply dab over primer on the entire face and wait for a couple of minutes for the product to set in and you’re ready to go! Try Maybelline Instant Age Rewind or Revlon Age Defying Instant Firming Primer (i love this one) for instant rejuvenation for aging skin.
Foundation – after primer, foundation is the next step in dolling up your skin. By this time, the skin cell renewal rate starts to slow down, leading to clogging pores and thickening of the skin, creating uneven skin tone and dullness. Too much of foundation will make you look caked up so you need to use a little bit to brighten the complexion. Use foundation formulated for mature girls like us such as retinols that are wonderful to counter aging effects. Foundation to look for: Chanel Lift Lumiere Firming and Smoothing Fluid Makeup SPF 15 (this works wonders) or Clinique Dewey Smooth Anti-Aging Makeup.
Blusher – used correctly, the right color of blusher can lift up your look instantly, making you look healthy, radiant and dewy looking. For ladies in their 40s opt for cream or gel blusher as they blend easily and unlike before, ditch the neutral hues and use pink and peach shades for instant perk up. Try out Bobbi Brown Blush, Benetint from Benefit and L’Oreal Visible Lift Color Lift Blush that provides cream to powder finish for instant glow.
Lips – as we age, it’s not just the skin we get worried about; the lips also can suffer from same fate. The natural color will fade and it will sag and the corners turn in a bit. Restore the youth into your puckers with lip liner to define the lips before adding the lipstick. A touch of gloss (not too much or you’ll look drooling) can also perk up your lips, making them appear fuller. And go for the cheerful shades with creamy finish to add a healthy shine to the lips. And yes, you can pull of a red hot color too. Opt for lipstick created for 40s such as L’Oreal Color Rich Anti-Age Serum.
Couple more correction tips: if you want your nose to look smaller, start your eyebrows further from the nose and of course if you want it to look bigger start the eyebrows closer to the nose. Also, powder the sides of your nose with a brown color and the tip with a very light, pinky shade. For the lips to look fuller, use a contour same shade as the lipstick but do the contour little outside the lips and then apply the lipstick.
So there you have it, try out these makeup tips and see for yourself. You will feel more confident than ever.
