Beauty industry legend Trish McEvoy has said, "what time takes away, we can bring back with makeup." As we age, lots of things change, especially our skin and beauty routines. Luckily, we have a booming cosmetics industry that caters to all of our beauty needs. Here are a few makeup ideas for those with mature skin.
Avoid Powder. Powder adds texture to skin that already has texture from 'maturity'. Use a cream-based makeup instead. Cream blushes add a glow to the skin, they're easy to use and you can use them on your lips in a pinch.
Exfoliate. Don't be afraid to exfoliate. Makeup loves dry, patchy skin and even a light application of makeup will look heavy. One to try, Lexi Noel Beauty Facial Exfoliant Creme. By the way, throw out the heavy foundation now and find a good concealer that you can use just where you need it instead of all over your face. And, it will last longer throughout the day. Our concealer comes in four shades and works on all skin types.
Define lips. A natural looking lip liner, like Lexi Noel Beauty Lip Pencil Liner in Bare, gives the look of natural fullness. Also, choose a lipstick that matches your inner lip or gums for the best look.
Eyeshadow, now optional. As our faces age, our eyes can become hooded or saggy, which robs your lids of space, emphasizes the droopy overhang and diminishes eye size and shape. If you can't imagine life without your favorite eyeshadow, avoid sparkly and go for a little shimmer. Try Lexi Noel Beauty Eyeshadow in Bloom, Chocolate, Coins, Gorgeous or Party. Mascara is always a yes!
One more thing to remember. Our faces become more asymmetrical with age. By age 50, one brow may be higher or differently shaped than the other; your top lip may have thinned to a nearly invisible line, while the bottom lip is still pouty. Don’t try to cover these little "imperfections" that give your face personality and individuality. They're what make you YOU! Go with it and live your best life.
