The list of Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to achieving a natural makeup look for women in their 50s becomes quite longer than it used to. Considering the changes that already took place in your skin, a few pro makeup tricks should help you carry out your natural makeup look effortlessly. From making wrinkles less noticeable to improving your glowing complexion – we have got you covered!
Your Skin is your Topmost Priority
Your skin should go before everything else in terms of donning a natural makeup look. Focus on enhancing your skin rather than piling up layers of concealer and foundation just to cover flaws. Invest in top-quality skincare infused with rich anti-aging ingredients. The same goes for your choice of primer, foundation, and concealer. Look for hydrating ingredients and antioxidants to make sure your skin looks good not only on the surface but from deep within as well. Manhattan-based makeup artist Sandy Linter recommends using a foundation with a slightly warmer tone to make your complexion look more youthful.
Stay Away from Bleeding Lipsticks
Professional makeup artist Jessie Powers says, "Extra lipstick migrates, especially as the definition of the lip's border softens with age,". With lines starting to appear around your lips, lip products that are too waxy tend to seep in through the lines. There are a couple of ways to prevent your lipstick from feathering – use a budge-proof lip liner and a long-wearing lipstick.
Always Apply Eye Cream Before Eye Makeup
Applying a moisturizing and nourishing eye cream helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the eye area. It helps plump up the eye area which prevents foundation and concealer from seeping through the lines. Besides, avoid packing too much powder just to set your concealer, or else it will visibly dry the area down and make the wrinkles more obvious.
