Age is just a number, but when it comes to skin, it's harder to ignore the signs of aging. As you enter your 50s, you may start to experience changes in your skin that affect your makeup routine. Dryness, wrinkles, and age spots are some of the typical issues that may come up.
Thankfully, there are ways to enhance your natural beauty and create a flawless makeup look, no matter your age. That’s why we’ve gathered some of our favorite tricks to help you look your best and feel confident every day!
Invest In Skincare Products
When you're in your 50s, your skin needs extra hydration and care. If you’re not taking care of your skin you may find that your makeup only highlights the signs of aging you’re trying to cover up, rather than disguising them.
A good moisturizer, serum, and eye cream can make a big difference in how your skin looks and feels. Using high-quality ingredients that help to make your signs of aging less noticeable is the first step to being able to have a flawless makeup look. Once your skin is healthy and taken care of, you’ll find you need less makeup to feel confident and radiant!
Don't Overdo Eye Makeup
When you’re younger, bright, bold colors and glitter can be a lot of fun to apply around your eyes for a pop of color. Unfortunately, once crow’s feet start to appear, you may notice these colors make you look even older and force you to want to take all your makeup off immediately!
Dark, heavy eyes can draw attention to wrinkles and sagging skin, which is not what you want. As fun as it may be to experiment with bold eyeshadow palettes and dramatic eyeliner looks, it's best to keep it simple and subtle. Even better - make sure you’re using an anti-aging eye serum to help smooth crow’s feet and erase dark circles!
Highlight Your Best Features
Since bold colors and glitter tend to make you look older when they’re used around the eyes, most people tend to avoid using them altogether, making them feel like even though they are wearing makeup, they still look drab and plain…
But just because you're over 50 doesn't mean you can't rock a glam makeup look once in a while! It’s all about knowing when and where to use bold colors. If you're going out at night or to a special occasion, use a highlighter to accentuate your cheekbones, temples, or brow bone. You can also use coral, pink or peach tones in lipstick to accentuate your lips!
Aging is inevitable, but feeling confident and beautiful at any age is possible with the right makeup tips and tricks. By following these suggestions, you can enhance your natural features, hide any concerns, and create a flawless makeup look that suits you. Remember to take care of your skin, choose the right products and colors, and don't be afraid to experiment with different techniques until you find what works for you!
