For After 40: Makeup Tips and Tutorials to Help You Look Younger
We found that a lot of women were looking for how to look younger at 40 with makeup. Makeup is a magical tool that enhances natural beauty and can make you look fresh and glowy. When our skin ages, makeup application can start to seem harder, but it's actually easier than you think when you know about the right makeup tips for mature skin.
That's why we looked for the makeup tutorials for mature skin for women in their 40, 50 and after their 60's as well. These tutorials were by some of the best makeup artists out there. They gave some amazing easy tips on enhancing your natural beauty and how to make your makeup look more youthful.
Makeup Tips for Mature Skin:
1. Your base makeup
With your base makeup, foundation and concealer, it is very important to use fresh and hydrating base makeup. Anything too dry, heavy or matte could sit in the lines, get stuck between wrinkles and make the skin look older...which is why some makeup artists recommend using tinted moisturisers.
Avoid using anything too heavy under the eyes because if the concealer is too thick or heavy it will crease. Also make sure you use your fingers a lot to make sure everything is well blended in and isn't just sitting on the skin.
2. Your eye makeup
Use makeup to emphasize your eyes and make them look bright, open and lifted. Like using darker shadows in the outer corners, crevices and the lash line.
Anything too shimmery or metallic could bother you when you're older. If you're scared of shimmer, you can still get the beauty benefits of it if you pick the right placements for it. Like in the inner corners to brighten the eyes or in the center of the lash line.
The older we get the more we need to define around our eyes. Defining the eyes with the simplest things can really define your whole face. Also curling your lashes can make a huge difference.
3. Blush and lips
Creams blush is highly recommended for mature skin. It gives a glowy, youthful look and rosyetoned blushes give a nice, healthy glow.
For lips, you want to define the lips by using lip liner before your lipstick. It makes a really big difference.
4. Just have fun
All these tips were derived from these amazing videos below by experts and makeup artists. And the main thing you have to remember is just to enjoy your skin and embrace everything about it. If you want to break the rules and play around with shimmer and color, then do that! Age will never take that away from you.
