Makeup for women over 50

High-quality and effective makeup depends not only on the cosmetics you use but also on the application of techniques that are suitable for your skin type and age. For example, older women should keep in mind that trying to hide all their wrinkles can only add a few extra years to their lives.

This can happen due to the wrong shade of lip or eye pencil, as well as due to applying too much foundation. OBOZREVATEL has figured out what are the 5 main mistakes to avoid in an anti-age makeup to look young and confident even if you are over 50.

Applying too thick a foundation

Many women apply heavy or dense foundation to hide fine lines and wrinkles. However, this can have the opposite effect. The product often gets clogged in the pores and emphasizes the signs of aging.

Makeup artists suggest replacing foundation with a tinted moisturizer because it allows the skin to "glow," which makes older women look fresher. Those who are worried that such a cream is not thick enough to hide imperfections should use concealer to correct individual areas.

Applying powder over the entire surface

In addition to not applying a thick layer of foundation, it is best to avoid applying powder to all areas of the face. This loose cosmetic product settles into any lines and wrinkles. Instead, apply powder only to the T-zone, which usually shines more than other areas.

Not using an eyeshadow primer

The main functions of a primer are to fix makeup, protect the skin from external influences, and even out skin tone. The older you get, the more your makeup can slip and shift. That's why you should apply an eye primer before applying eyeshadow to make your makeup last all day.

Not using lip liner

With age, collagen levels in a woman's body decrease, and natural plump lips become a thing of the past. To restore their former expressiveness, use lip liner. The makeup artist recommends using a color that is slightly deeper than the natural shade of your lips. Start drawing from the edge of the line, and then fill in the remaining space, creating the effect of "full" lips.

Use soft shades of pink or champagne for the center. This will create the illusion of depth.

Too dark eyebrow and eyeliner color

If your goal is to look younger, you shouldn't emphasize your eyes with deep black shades. Replace them with softer colors of brown. You can experiment with green or blue eyeliner. Makeup artists note that when using black, there is a risk of making your eyes look smaller than they actually are. The ideal option would be to apply dark brown eyeliner on the upper lash line, and then white or nude eyeliner on the lower lash line. This will "open" and brighten your eye.

in addition, beauties over 50 should not draw black or dark brown eyebrows. It is better to choose pencils from the light brown palette.
