As you age, you may notice changes in your skin that weren’t there before. Some women may be ashamed of this and try to hide it with makeup; however, there’s a lot to be said for enhancing your natural features instead of trying to hide them. When it comes to beauty tips for women over 50, the best rule to follow is that there are no rules! You do what you like and rock what you have, age notwithstanding. Read on for some of our other top tips in this article!
Create a Solid Base
Instead of trying to cover up skin imperfections with layers of foundation, focus on creating a healthy base. This means cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing your face regularly. Aim to cleanse at least twice a day and exfoliate once or twice a week. Moisturizing before applying makeup can provide a hydrating base that does not compromise on the layers that are to follow. You may opt to add a primer to target dryer patches of skin and fine lines.
Focus on Achieving an Even Skin Tone
If you are going to try to cover up your wrinkles, chances are you will take all day, and the results will not be that amazing. Instead, it can end up drawing more attention to them! When applying foundation, focus on evening out your skin tone by using concealer in hyperpigmented areas, such as at the inner corners of your eyes.
Open Up Your Eyes
Here is where you can really start to have fun. To appear more youthful without going too far, you will want to open up your eyes. To achieve this, experiment with eyelash curlers and finding the right mascara. You don’t want to go with a mascara that clumps up your eyelashes, and to this end, you will find that many youth-enhancing formulas don’t work.
If you are using eyeshadow, start from the outer corners of your eyes before working your way inwards, ensuring that the color gets less pigmented as you go along. This has the effect of making your eyes appear bigger and giving you a more energetic look!
Trim Instead of Plucking Brows
One thing that’s true as you age is that you will want to conserve every eyebrow hair you have. Instead of plucking your brow hairs, trim them to your desired shape instead. Avoid going too over the top with eyebrow pencils and fill them in with a natural shade that’s not too artificial-looking.
