Who says you can't wear camo after 50?
As for as I'm concerned, fashion and beauty should be agless. When did it become acceptable to think feeling good, looking great and being down right happy at 50 wasn't ours to have? Or better yet was only for the few who..." looked good for their age?"
Let's show these naysayers how it's done!
The Natural Make-Up Look for Mature Skin.
All over the internet, from websites to make-up tutorials, you'll be told a natural makeup look is for the young - that older, more mature skin requires more camouflage. No pun intended! ;)
This is far from the truth. In my experience, the less makeup you apply to mature skin the better off you will be! You see, when you have wrinkles--and most of us do, myself included--the more makeup you apply, especially powder based formulas, the more you'll end up accentuating the wrinkles. Something most of us don't want to do - at least not intentionally, right?
So, how do you go about achieving a natural look when you're a bit older?
Just follow these simple steps!
Make sure your mascara is not made with: Parabens, Thimerosal, Synthetic and Coal Tar Dyes, Aluminum Power, Retinol Acetate, Formaldehyde and/or Imidazolindinyl Urea.
STEP #4 - Apply a natural colored blush to the cheek bones. Applying blush just to the apple of the cheeks will age you. Yep, that's right, consider this..when most put on blush, they smile and apply blush to the apple of each cheek. Now, when you are a teenager this doesn't pose as big of an issue; but, what happens to the apple of the cheek when you stop smiling? You guessed, they go south! As we age, well things start to sag, and the last thing we want to do is accentuate this. In fact, with make-up, we want to create an illusion of lifting...lifting the cheek, lifting the brow, opening the eyes, etc. When you want a dramatic effect, you select a pop of color for your cheeks, but when going for a natural glow, choose a color that's closest to your own natural flush --the color of your cheeks after a great workout is the natural hue you want to recreate.
STEP #5 - Finish up with just enough pale lip gloss to make the lips look dewy. I love a natural flavored lip gloss. Cause, let's face it, what you apply to the lips you end up absorbing whether you want to or not. Beautycounter's Lip Gloss in Bare Shimmer is my go to favorite. Infused with a delectable natural vanilla flavor, it's teardrop applicator goes on smoothly without any stickiness. You'll love it!
