These makeup tips for aging skin will help older women apply makeup correctly. When it comes to aging skin, there are different makeup application tips, which when applied correctly, can erase years off the face! And remember, when it comes to makeup and aging skin LESS is always MORE!
Makeup Tips For Aging Skin
When it comes to concealer, choose an age-defying concealer which will fill in fine lines, and cover up dark spots and age spots. Revlon’s Age-Defying Concealer is a very good, inexpensive concealer which fills in fine lines and covers up dark spots and age spots in a pinch. Apply the concealer in a triangle shape underneath the eyes, around the mouth, and over any dark spots. Blend into skin by dabbing with your fingertip or a beauty blender – do not RUB in.
Just like with concealer, choose an age-defying foundation. Always go with a foundation that caters to YOUR skin! So if you’re looking for a “lift” and an anti-wrinkle foundation, choose one that does just that! I like L’Oreal’s Visible Lift Serum Absolute Advanced Age-Reversing Makeup. Only $12, this foundation has amazing reviews from women over 50 as it flawlessly hides fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots. It’s also light weight, and gives off a dewy, youthful look.
Set your makeup with a translucent powder. Any translucent powder will work – this is so your makeup will stay on all day, prevent oiliness, and give your skin a perfect, matte look!
For aging skin, a very light, pink-tinted blush should be applied. Like I said above, less is always more when it comes to aging skin and makeup application. So apply a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks and you’re good to go!
Apply liquid eyeliner only on the top lid, and never on the bottom. Applying eyeliner to the bottom lids will make your eyes look smaller and draw attention to lines around the eyes. Instead, line the lower lid with a white eyeliner or white eyeshadow so that eyes will look bigger.
When it comes to aging skin, no eyeshadow is better than eyeshadow. Instead, swipe a white eyeshadow just underneath the eyebrows, and a primer on the lids. Leave as is! Eyeshadow on aging skin will only make you look older. Keep it clean and simple!
Apply two coats of black mascara. If you like, you can curl your lashes before. Applying two coats of mascara will lengthen the lashes, making your eyes look bigger and more youthful.
Choose a light lipstick and stay away from dark, bright lipsticks like brown, reds, or burgundys.
Of course, take these makeup tips for aging skin with a grain of salt and try different shades to see what works best for YOU! But the number 1 rule to remember for aging skin: less is always more! So don’t cake on the makeup, it will only accentuate your wrinkles.
