10 Beauty Tips For The Older Women


Staying beautiful requires continuous efforts. Blessing Ukemena writes on beauty tips for older women

As a woman gets older, the skin begins to lose its elasticity. So, the lady has to do more in order to keep herself looking good. Here are some beauty tips for the older lady:

1.  Add more moisture to your total skin care regime. Switch from cleansing gels or bars to cleansing milks that are more hydrating. Use face creams that are richer and will add the extra nourishment your skin now needs instead of lotions. Make sure you apply a lip balm before going to bed each night to ensure a soft smile in the morning.

2.  Applying dark lip-liners emphasizes the age of your skin. Stay away from dark, matte lipsticks. The lips can become smaller as we age, so you will want to switch to sheer or creamy lipsticks in light, neutral shades that contain a slight pearlescent glow. Also, apply a light highlighter around the perimeter of the lips to enhance their natural lip shape.

3.  Lipstick colours can fade off unless you seal the lips with a lip-liner. Don’t use coloured lip-liners that match your lipstick like the old days, because you’ll get a ring around the mouth when the hue wears off. Instead, you want to apply a neutral lip-liner that matches your real lip colour to keep lipstick from seeping into the fine lines around the mouth.

4. Stay away from powder foundations that can look chalky on the skin and enhance any wrinkles or weathered texture. Opt for liquid foundations that contain natural botanicals and antioxidants that feed the skin and ensure to cover the eyelids and under the eyes. Then, apply only a very light dusting of translucent powder to set your makeup without it looking heavy.

5.  Thin brows can age you, so try and fill them in naturally with a fine tipped eyebrow pencil and choose a waterproof formula so it stays put all day. Use small feather-like strokes, and if you feel you overdid it, get a synthetic fine-tipped concealer brush dipped into a little foundation to tone it down.

6.  Avoid getting droppy eyes during the day by applying waterproof eyeliners that have staying power along the upper lashes only. Always try out colours that will look great with your skin tone

7.  Mascara can be a real mess when it smudges on lids that tend to get heavier as we age. So, use tube technology formula mascara to guarantee lashes that last. You don’t need makeup remover to take this formula off at night; just wash your face with warm water and cleanser, and the mascara easily slips off into little tubes.

8.  Shimmery and glittery eye shadows can look strange on older skin, so use sheer matte or slightly opalescent colours across lids. A good test to see if you are on the right track is to apply the colour to the wrist and then walk outside and look at the shade in the sunlight. If you see little squares of shimmer, it’s too much. If it just looks glowing and blends easily into your skin, it’s just right.

9.  Chin Hairs – Those dreaded chin hairs happen to the best of us when time goes by, and sometimes, plucking isn’t enough, Make an appointment with your dermatologist and schedule a series of laser treatments to eliminate all those nasty little witchy hairs.

10.  Add a pop of colour to the face to create a refreshed and youthful look. Apply a cream blush in a floral shade just to the apples of your cheeks and blend in with your fingertips. Just be careful not to overdo it or you end up with a clownish look.
