Crossing your 40s is making you nervous and you need some makeup tips for older women. Mature women can use these makeup ideas and tips to look younger. Here are some tips for mature makeup.
Hairstyle and Color: if you like long hair, keep them shoulder length or till the neckline. A chin length bob cut, or any other style looks great and makes you look smart. Silver is good and elegant but if you still insist on coloring the grey use lighter shades of brown to give your face a more elegant look.
Makeup Base: Do away with matte effect foundations as they highlight the creases of your skin. As you are ageing, your skin needs more hydration. So use a liquid foundation mixed with a 24-hour moisturizer. Apply all over face and neck with finger tips and leave for a few seconds. Remove the extra with a clean cotton ball and then apply a translucent powder that reflects light. It will give your face soft glow that adds grace to your face.
Concealer: The basic function of a concealer is to hide the blemishes. Use it blelow your eyes before applying the foundation if you have dark circles or some scars on your face. A bronze or yellow shade will be better. But don't apply a thick layer. It should be used barely so.
Blush On: Apply a hint of blush on over your high cheek bone up to the sides of forehead to avoid a sagging look. Apply a tinge of it on your forehead as well as you nose tip and chin. But don't over do it. a natural pearl shade goes best.
Eyes: If you like using an eye shadow go for light, neutral and a hint of shimmer. Use single color instead of a two or three color combination. Apply it evenly over your eye id and let it fade into your brow line. It gives your eyes a very natural look. Use an eyelash curler and mascara. Eyeliners can be avoided but on special occasions you can use a thin line of eyeliner preferable brown or dark brown instead of the black. The brown will blend with the glow on your face and make you look very classy. You can add a touch of shimmer. But don't ever do the shimmer as it has the tendency to later highlight your lines. Prefer using an eye pencil instead of the liquid one which has a tendency to accentuate the lines around your eyes. Let go off the line below your eyes. Just a single line on your eyelids will be fine. You can use kohl to make them look wider. But just a thin line again. Eyebrows tend to fade and sparse. Use brown pencil to cover up and an eyebrow brush to blend in all the lines. Don't go for the black ones at all. They look really artificial actually draw attention to your age.
Lips: The skin around your lips would wrinkle so avoid matte shades. Apply a lip liner and fill in with a light shade. Go for pearls, browns and pinks instead of reds, maroons and vines. You also use a thick line of the lip liner. Blend it with your finger tips all over your lips so that it is barely there and then apply gloss. It gives a very elegant and natural look.
