Make Up Tips for Mature Women

Here are a few makeup tips for the more mature women, which includes me:)

The eyes may not literally be the windows to your soul as the adage suggests, but they’re certainly the part of your face everyone notices first. The secret to age-defying eyes? Always start with an eye shadow primer or a mineral concealer to smooth out the eyelids. Then line the eyes with a dark brown pencil or gel liner to widen them. For the top of the lids use neutral eye shadows — dark brown or gray on the outer corners of the eye, taupe in the crease, and a light shade on the lid. The final touch is to curl the eyelashes and apply black mascara. The overall effect makes the eyes look bigger and brighter.

Next to your eyes, your lips are the second most visible part of your face. You don’t want people to stare at them for the wrong reason. One thing mature women have to steer clear of is the heavily dark lipsticks, especially the browns and deep reds. That makes you look really old. Instead of going dark, use a nude lip liner and top it with a light colored lipstick or gloss.

The proof is in the pudding.

Make it a Beautiful day,
