But what about makeup? To keep you looking at your best, there are adjustments to be made in the way you wear your makeup that’ll keep you looking younger.
A great start is to invest in permanent makeup, reducing the amount of makeup you actually have to wear, especially if you wear it daily. It’ll save you time and look a lot more natural than anything painted or drawn on would.
Permanent makeup gives you perfectly shaped eyebrows, eyeliner that never smudges and lip liner that is always ready and waiting for a touch of colour.
With that out of the way, here are a few tips for wearing your makeup in style as you age:
- Less is more
This is when makeup should be used as a vehicle to highlighting your assets and concealing here and there, without plastering a mask on to hide your natural beauty!
Stay away from matte foundations and use products that are filled with moisture. After all, you need help to make up for the loss of natural oils you experience as you age.
- Bronzer instead of sun
Use a little, the emphasis being on little, foundation to even out your skin tone before you apply the bronzer.
Of course, the first layer in this routine should always be sunscreen! If you haven’t already had to accept sun damage to your skin such as pigmentation, sun spots and dehydration, along with fine lines and wrinkles, do the work of using sunscreen as the base to makeup, every time.
- Hold the shimmer
- Luscious lips
You’d be closer to having lips that look younger and deliciously plump if you move to sheer lipsticks. Matt just doesn’t work for lips either. This is where having permanent lip liner is going to be a blessing, as you can avoid the feathering of lipstick into wrinkles when you do use lighter colours.
Creamy hydrating lipstick will keep your lips looking youthful and smooth. You’ll just have to make sure that the lip liner you wear is a matching colour, for maximum effect.
- Muted colours
