1. Keep in mind that Less is More.
As you age, what makes you look attractive is actually an understated look. The goal is to look more naturak; hence, you need to tone your makeup down. If you used to apply quite a lot of concealer or foundation, it’s time to do the opposite now. To make both lighter, try mixing it with a little moisturizer.
Your skin texture also changes as you get older. If you’re wearing heavy makeup, it will most likely settle on your fine lines and pores, making them look all the more prominent. Don’t use too much eyeliner as this makes you look even more old.
2. Glitter is a No-No.
While it may have been great during your 20’s to early 30’s it can only make you look harsh now at the age of 40 and up. So whether you’re applying eyeshadow, blush or lipstick, stick to natural colors.
3. Don’t Buy Youthful Looking Products.
There are certain colors that suit every age. For example, bright colors look great on teenagers but really awful on adult women. Refrain from wearing bright eyeshadows or mascara and replace them with natural tones of black or brown.
