When we get older, our way of using our beauty products can change and it is clear that we do not use the same cosmetics at 20 years old as we do at 40 years old. In fact, skin requires beauty products adapted to its epidermis. Of course, just because we are getting older, we do not have to give up the pleasures of make-up! Here are 15 tips to help you enhance your beauty with cosmetics.
1. Wear sunscreen
We all know that sunlight ages skin, so it’s not a bad idea to use sunscreen every day. Sunlight can be harmful to the skin even if it is cloudy. So you can wear SPF 15 in the winter to keep your skin looking young.
2. Hydrate your skin
Moisturize your skin regularly 10 minutes after taking a bath or shower so that it can absorb moisture. Always use a moisturizer before applying your foundation.
3. Apply yellow-tinted makeup
Yellow-tinted makeup helps to make the face radiant and also gives it a healthy glow. It won’t make you look yellow. It will simply give you a warm complexion, which will give you the impression that you are beaming.
4. Highlight your bone structure
To look young, try to focus on your cheekbones and jaw. You can make these areas pop with bronzing powder or blush.
5. Use night cream
This product can be very convenient to use if you don’t have enough time in the morning before leaving home. Therefore, you can use night cream as part of your end-of-day routine. All you have to do is apply this cream to your face and neck.
6. Opt for a liquid foundation
As you get older, your face starts to need more moisturizer. Hydration is as important as avoiding products that will keep your face dry. If you have already used powder foundation, it is advisable to switch to a liquid foundation.
7. Apply a primer on your eyelids
Eyeshadow looks unattractive if you have the smallest crease or wrinkle on your eyelid. The most beautiful women know this problem and it is easily solved with an eyeshadow primer. Simply apply this product before applying eyeshadow.
8. Choose a neutral colour for your eyeliner
Using a softer brown or grey eyeliner could create an effect of having larger eyes, just like bright black eyeliner, but in a much more subtle and elegant way. These are also two beautiful colours for older women.
9. Don’t forget your concealer
You should drink plenty of water and take care of yourself by eating a healthy diet to reduce brown spots and get a radiant complexion. But whenever you want extra coverage, use a concealer and a liquid corrector.
10. Humidify your makeup sponge
Your makeup can thicken, so make sure your foundation doesn’t end up looking too heavy. So, to achieve maximum success when applying your makeup, wet your sponge so that your beauty products blend well on your skin.
11. Avoid adding too much makeup on your eyebrows
Eyebrows are usually too dark compared to the skin of an older woman. We recommend using a soft brown pencil if you absolutely want to draw your eyebrows.
12. Show your lashes
Our eyelashes tend to need a little help as they age. This is the best time to use the eyelash curler you were scared of using when you were younger and use a softer, more subtle brown mascara.
13. Use a lot of lip balm
Before going to bed, you can use lip balm; dab a little Vaseline or lip balm frequently all the way to the middle of the lips. It will make your lips look fuller. Also, try to avoid lipsticks because they make lips look thinner.
14. Use a complementary eyeshadow colour
It is a bit of very simple and effective advice. If you have blue eyes, we recommend that you choose a warm colour, such as a warm brown. If you have green or brown eyes, choose a green or purple eyeshadow. An eyeshadow colour that complements your eye colour will help you to highlight them.
15. Opt for a natural look
You must be proud of your skin and enhance it. Your freckles, wrinkles and moles are all part of your story; each imperfection indicates where you have been.
