Mature Women Makeup Tips

Elizabeth Rondon



The best way to Conceal Wrinkles Less is more. Never has that been true when it comes to makeup and our faces as we age. Here’s some tips on the right and also the wrong ways to apply powders and foundation.

Most women use too much foundation in the attempt. This has the opposite effect of highlighting imperfections rather than covering them up. Use a tinted moisturizer and only on the parts of your face that you just feel need it. Go a shade or two darker as well no matter how light your skin. Darker shades can also help to hide those wrinkles as lighter shades have the tendency to make them stand out.

Powder Power When you were younger, used powder all over your face and you had the problem of too much oil on your own skin. Stop this habit. Now. Powder absorbs moisture and oil as it is intended to do. Mature skin lack moisture and also don’t need it. Use it on either your nose or chin areas.

Professional makeup artists NEVER use powder on women over 50. Powder makes them stand out and has the nasty habit of sitting on the top of wrinkles.

Sagging Skin and What To Do About Them Plastic surgery? Facelifts? Botox? Wait! Do not run off and find a plastic surgeon yet! Makeup can perform wonders. Jowl lines are called funny lines as they extend from your nose. They appear most prominently when you laugh and that’s why they are referred to as “funny lines”. These tend to deepen as we age. By drawing attention away from them, you can minimize these. Wear more prominent earrings as it will pull eyes away from your jaw lines but don’t wear chokers or necklaces that are large as they will draw attention to your jawline.

A trick to hide those necklines that are sagging is to use the proper haircut. Haircuts that drop below the chin will draw attention away from your chin. Longer cuts are better as they distract from your neck and will draw the eyes even further down.

Crow’s Feet – Not Another Exotic Chinese Dish! Crow’s feet are those wrinkles and fine lines that show up on the outside edges of our eyes. They appear when we do, as we crinkle our eyes, when you laugh. Not so when you get older.

Don’t use heavy amounts of concealer or you’ll risk having “raccoon eyes”. Just apply a few dabs of concealer and pat it on with a good high quality brush. Don’t use powder across the eyes as it’ll settle into those lines.

Saggy Eyelids Do Not use mascara on the bottom eyelashes. Curl your upper lashes and use the darkest color mascara you’ve on them to make your eyes pop. Use eyeliner only on the upper lid. As it stays better use liquid liner rather than a pencil. Make the lines not thick and light. Do not line the inside of your eyes.

Do not use light or shimmer eyeshadow. Use darker shades to create a shadow effect to minimize the look of crow’s feet.

Thinning Hair No. We’re not talking about a new hair re-growth product! We can go to the moon but we can not re-grow hair…yet!

Facial hair thins as well. For us women our eyebrows. Particular attention is needed by thinning eyebrows. Why? Stray, out of place and uneven length hairs will stand out more than normal, with thinning eyebrows. Get them professionally done. Do not try to draw your own brows. Also have them professionally done, if you have to draw in to fill in.

Hair Isn’t The Only Thing That Thins! Your lips will also grow older. This happens as we age because we will lose fat in our lips. That is why women have fat injections. However, you don’t need to go to this extreme. Makeup can help here.

Pick the lip color that is correct. Use a color that is a shade or 2 darker than than your natural color.

As you get older so create a lip line by using a lip liner your lip line fades. Apply lipstick. Consider using lip gloss instead and replacing your lipstick. Don’t use lip plumpers. They do work but the effects are temporary and it will cause lipstick and your lip lines to become displaced when your lips deflate.

Summer Makeup Rules

Elizabeth Rondon



A number of you have asked this important question about your own makeup. I ‘ve had countless conversations about the topic of shiny vs. matte. Women feel that it will age their skin, making it look drier and older than it actually is.

Your skin in its healthiest state, like hair and nails, should have a subtle glow, a natural sheen. It ages the skin as quickly as if it had too much shine when your makeup is too matte! A subtle shine can add “pop” to the eye area, highlight cheekbones beautifully, and give the appearance of fuller lips instantly.

After painting faces for almost sixteen years, I have to say I love to see women of all ages and skin tones wearing a little something reflective on their face. The key word here is “little”. I’m not talking about going out and buying metallic makeup to wear to work everyday. Frosty lipstick, no body glitter, or shimmering face powders are allowed! The kind of shine I love the best is a ‘satin’ finish. Products with this ‘satin’ finish catch light and give life to your complexion!

A couple of rules to keep in mind:

For example: matte eye shadows with dewy lips, or satin-finish eye shadows with a traditional lipstick texture.

2 If your skin is dry or flaky, shimmery makeup would not be the best for you. Stick to dewy, creamy textures. This may give your skin a healthy glow. Try Nars Cream Shadows and Blushes in addition to Stila Convertible Color.

3 If your skin is oily, look for creamy, slightly shimmery eye shadow colors that are smudge-proof. This help keep your powder shadows in place during the day ahead and will definitely serve as a base color. Try Bobbi Brown Cream Shadow Sticks and Stila Shadow Pots.

Remember, makeup is not permanent. It comes off! If this all still seems a bit scary, a well-trained makeup artist show you the way to look your very best and can answer any questions!
