How are you all today? Hopefully really well and are making the most of the over 50 life! Never forget our mantra - refuse to be invisible!
Today's blog is about avoiding makeup mistakes that can you make look old and old fashioned!
No doubt you have read in numerous magazines that you need to keep makeup updated to stay looking fresh and youthful. Sadly, too many women are still rocking, (or not), the look they wore when they were eighteen. It just doesn’t work! If you don't believe me, dig out a photo of you when you were 18. (Post it in the comments section if you want to share!). Now be honest do you want to replicate that look right now?
To avoid making ourselves look older we need to take heed of a few make-up artist tips………...
A great tip to get your foundation well blended and looking flawless is to use a good quality primer. My favourite is made by Laura Geller. She has around 10 different primers (spackle). My absolute favourite is her Treatment spackle to achieve an even tone.
12. Clumpy Mascara. As we age our lashes are less luscious. Because of this I have tried volumising mascara thinking it is the answer. It isn't! As our lashes become shorter we just end up with a clumpy mess. It does not make our lashes look good at all!. Look for a mascara that will lengthen and volumise. It will do you a lot of favours. To help get thicker lashes naturally, swipe your lashes with a little castor oil at night.
13. Wrinkly eye shadow! Okay, wrinkly eyelids are part of ageing and there's no shame in that. The bummer is of course that it can make our eyeshadow slide. To help get smoother eyelids and make shadow last longer I really recommend an eye primer. You don't need to spend a fortune. I find the Primark , yes really, eye primer to be excellent. Use this before you apply your shadow. The best shadows for older eyes are powder based. Creams can really hug creases.
Have a great day!
