3-Step Simple Makeup Routine for Over 50:
Step-1 Hydrate the skin
Makeup for mature skin must start with moisturizing and hydrating the skin.
As we age, the layer of skin that contains 10-20% water of the entire body loses its ability to hold moisture.
Other factors that make our skin drier are the dip in hormone level, fewer oil glands, decreased cell renewal, and sun damage.
Therefore, the first step in makeup application over 50 is always moisturizing.
It not only adds glow to your face but also helps in blending the makeup.
Step-2 Cover-up conservatively
When it comes to makeup for a 60-year-old woman, low coverage foundations with a hydrating effect are what is recommended by most experts.
Powder foundation tends to settle into the fine lines and wrinkles, making them more visible and dense.
Try a liquid or cream-based foundation for a more natural look. Famous Hollywood makeup artist Sandy Linter suggests using a moist sponge or foundation brush to apply a sheer, hydrating foundation for an even out skin tone.
Remember, it may not hide all your lines and wrinkles, and more importantly, you don’t have to. The wrinkles around your eyes and mouth are there because of all the smiling, so own them!
Step-3 Don’t neglect the eye makeup
Makeup for women over 50 is not complete without talking about the eyes.
With age, the skin of our eyelashes gets thinner and more sensitive.
Therefore, use good quality eyeshadow only.
Look for the expiry date on all your eye makeup products.
For makeup over 50, most artists recommend light shimmer and matte eyeshadow as it suits almost every skin type.
On the other hand, shimmery and frosty eyeshadows accentuate wrinkles and highlight uneven skin.
Thinning lashes and lash loss are common concerns of our silver beauties.
The most common reason for this is our body’s inability to absorb nutrients from the diet.
Therefore the makeup routine for over 50 must include using a natural mascara that not only highlights your lashes but nourishes them as well.
