Today, I want to share some makeup tips for women over 40.
As we age, our skin changes. What might have worked for us in our 20s and 30s may not work for us in our 40s and beyond.
There are several things we can do to help us look fabulous after 40!
- Moisturize! I can’t tell you how important it is to moisturize. As we age our face usually becomes dry so we need to moisturize to help our makeup go on smoother. There are many moisturizers to choose from so find one that works for you and your skin.
- Use a primer before applying makeup. A primer helps prevent makeup from seeping into fine lines. I’ve talked about using a primer before. I use Mary Kay’s foundation primer and I love it!
- I’ve shared this tip before but use cream-based blushes and eyeshadows. Powder eyeshadow and blush will bring more attention to the wrinkles on your face. Cream-based products help hide the fine lines around your eyes and cheeks.
- Use neutral shades. Dark shades don’t look as good on older women. These women are all over 40 and they’re wearing soft, neutral shades of color on their face. Nothing too bold!
- Use a lip plumper and lip gloss. (I have not tried a lip plumper yet but I’m going to, so I’ll let you know what I think.) Our lips appear thinner as we get older. Lip plumps and gloss give our lips a fuller appearance. I always wear lip gloss with my lipstick.
- Fill in your eyebrows. DON’T DRAW YOUR EYEBROWS ON WITH AN EYEBROW PENCIL. This will age you and doesn’t look attractive. You can use a pencil but make sure you just add color, not a line. I personally prefer to use eyeshadow with an eyebrow brush. I think this looks more natural.
I hope these tips will help you to feel and look more beautiful as you age. We’re all aging so we might as well age gracefully, right?
Do you have any other tips to add to my list? I’d love to hear from you!
Beauty For the Heart~~This morning my devotion reminded me that in my weaknesses Christ’s power is perfect. With Christ we can do more than we could ever imagine. Do you have something ahead of you that you know you can’t do on your own? Remember Christ dwells in you and His grace is sufficient! And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 2 Corinthians 12:9 (NASB)
Have a blessed day!
