Mature Women Makeup Tips

Elizabeth Rondon



The best way to Conceal Wrinkles Less is more. Never has that been true when it comes to makeup and our faces as we age. Here’s some tips on the right and also the wrong ways to apply powders and foundation.

Most women use too much foundation in the attempt. This has the opposite effect of highlighting imperfections rather than covering them up. Use a tinted moisturizer and only on the parts of your face that you just feel need it. Go a shade or two darker as well no matter how light your skin. Darker shades can also help to hide those wrinkles as lighter shades have the tendency to make them stand out.

Powder Power When you were younger, used powder all over your face and you had the problem of too much oil on your own skin. Stop this habit. Now. Powder absorbs moisture and oil as it is intended to do. Mature skin lack moisture and also don’t need it. Use it on either your nose or chin areas.

Professional makeup artists NEVER use powder on women over 50. Powder makes them stand out and has the nasty habit of sitting on the top of wrinkles.

Sagging Skin and What To Do About Them Plastic surgery? Facelifts? Botox? Wait! Do not run off and find a plastic surgeon yet! Makeup can perform wonders. Jowl lines are called funny lines as they extend from your nose. They appear most prominently when you laugh and that’s why they are referred to as “funny lines”. These tend to deepen as we age. By drawing attention away from them, you can minimize these. Wear more prominent earrings as it will pull eyes away from your jaw lines but don’t wear chokers or necklaces that are large as they will draw attention to your jawline.

A trick to hide those necklines that are sagging is to use the proper haircut. Haircuts that drop below the chin will draw attention away from your chin. Longer cuts are better as they distract from your neck and will draw the eyes even further down.

Crow’s Feet – Not Another Exotic Chinese Dish! Crow’s feet are those wrinkles and fine lines that show up on the outside edges of our eyes. They appear when we do, as we crinkle our eyes, when you laugh. Not so when you get older.

Don’t use heavy amounts of concealer or you’ll risk having “raccoon eyes”. Just apply a few dabs of concealer and pat it on with a good high quality brush. Don’t use powder across the eyes as it’ll settle into those lines.

Saggy Eyelids Do Not use mascara on the bottom eyelashes. Curl your upper lashes and use the darkest color mascara you’ve on them to make your eyes pop. Use eyeliner only on the upper lid. As it stays better use liquid liner rather than a pencil. Make the lines not thick and light. Do not line the inside of your eyes.

Do not use light or shimmer eyeshadow. Use darker shades to create a shadow effect to minimize the look of crow’s feet.

Thinning Hair No. We’re not talking about a new hair re-growth product! We can go to the moon but we can not re-grow hair…yet!

Facial hair thins as well. For us women our eyebrows. Particular attention is needed by thinning eyebrows. Why? Stray, out of place and uneven length hairs will stand out more than normal, with thinning eyebrows. Get them professionally done. Do not try to draw your own brows. Also have them professionally done, if you have to draw in to fill in.

Hair Isn’t The Only Thing That Thins! Your lips will also grow older. This happens as we age because we will lose fat in our lips. That is why women have fat injections. However, you don’t need to go to this extreme. Makeup can help here.

Pick the lip color that is correct. Use a color that is a shade or 2 darker than than your natural color.

As you get older so create a lip line by using a lip liner your lip line fades. Apply lipstick. Consider using lip gloss instead and replacing your lipstick. Don’t use lip plumpers. They do work but the effects are temporary and it will cause lipstick and your lip lines to become displaced when your lips deflate.

Victoria’s Secret sales are declining, is it a problem of real bodies?




Victoria's Secret

Be part of a Victoria’s Secret Runway is the dream of any model, Gisele Bündchen, Heidi Kluim, Adriana Lima, owners of spectacular bodies have been for a long time the center of its marketing campaigns, but do women want to buy what they wear now? We don’t think so.

Will Victoria’s Secret need to adapt to a new image, that of real women? Are images without photoshot the way to go?

Victoria’s Secret will close 20 stores before the end of the year. Among the 20 are six Victoria’s Secret stores that were closed earlier this year already, but L Brands did not specify which other outlets will close their doors definitely over the next few months. There are also plans to open three new stores this year.

Consistently stagnant Victoria’s Secret sales have led Randal Konik, an analyst at New York-based financial services firm Jefferies, to predict in July that the game is over for brand.

Victoria’s Secret had trouble selling merchandise in the month of June, even when it was at a discount, according to a media report.

Same-store sales at the retail chain were down 1% for the month, with increases in the beauty segment offset by declines in lingerie and the Pink brand.

L Brands, owner of the brand, also announced on Wednesday that Denise Landman, CEO of Victoria’s Secret Pink, will step down later this year. The Pink brand, which previously served as a sort of life jacket for Victoria’s Secret, has also struggled recently.

Landman will be replaced by Amy Hauk, who currently serves as president of merchandising and product development at Bath & Body Works, owned by L Brands.

The skin care for man or woman is a nutritionally supportive program that includes efforts to prevent free radical damage and protect our body’s out of the environment’s outer layers. Pollution, sun, wind, and oxygen have effects that are damaging, and they get worse with age.

We’re fortunate to live in a time when technology is not just available but advancing. Makeup is by no means. So, much advancement has been made in the region of skin care for woman and man.

We know that men and women are different. We appreciate that difference in many ways. However, until recently, companies that are cosmetic did not appear to explain the appreciation. Because skin care for man and woman were identical, except possibly for fragrance.

In some cases, you could find products suitable for men, but now there are many options available. The ideal skincare for girl kind was introduced because of scientific discoveries. Let’s look at some of them.

Researchers were amazed at the effects CoQ10 had on the skin. This material is produced in the human body, and its function is energy conversion within your cells. The power of CoQ10 is such that the heart when included for man or woman and primarily derives its energy from it, it acts as a potent antioxidant.

Over time they also discovered that a compound in Japanese sea kelp blocks the enzymatic process that causes the breakdown of hyaluronic acid, an important part of the epidermis. It may be used in skin care for man or woman.

However, let’s look for a moment at a few of the differences. Men shave their faces. Women shave parts of their bodies and their legs. In a woman, her body’s areas may be the elbows and heels. In man, his face may be nearly that rough. Some ingredients may be the same as those for man, you see, but others should be different.

D-Panthenol or vitamin B5 helps repair skin tissue and acts as a moisturizer. It relieves the pain of existing sunburn protects against sunburn and enriches the natural tanning process. Men need it for their faces. But, it is largely reserved for body skin care for the girl. Women have differing needs due to their faces.

The color of the face and neck is quite a bit darker than the rest of their bodies. They tend to have spots where pigmentation is darker and deeper. It may be freckles or age spots. It may be darker patches around the eyes due to lack of sleep, so the desire is to even out the tone and texture.

That is why you see whitening creams. Women look younger with lighter and lighter skin. The research has shown that a compound found in extrapone nutgrass, a European plant, will lighten dark cigarettes and even out pigmentation in a matter of weeks, with no annoying or harmful effects.

To sum it up, the best skin care for man or woman is natural and safe. It is good health for your skin.

Christy Martin



I have seen women complaining that it is not easier to get desert dusky looks but in fact it is more than easier. In this piece of writing, I will be talking about the easiest yet speedy looks to be obtained with the help of Desert Dusk palette by Huda.

Violet Vixen: I am obsessed with the violet shades for this fall. Violet Vixen is the perfect look that reflects the mesmerizing purple sky at the dusk in desert. Amethyst matte has been beautifully combined with the duo chrome topper and shimmering pearls coming up with a unique light shifting upshot.

Apply Amethyst all over the eyelid as a base. Blend it up in to crease. Use smoke and oud to intensify the crease in the outer as well as inner corners. Blend royal lightly in the lid and dab twilight in order to maximize the shine.

Cosmo Queen: Shade Eden is one of the first colors created by Huda. It is indeed one of the perfect bases for several looks. This amber tone is powerful, yet sophisticated tone while the glittery part offers a vibrant finish.

Use Eden all over the lid meeting the brow. In the crease make use of Amber, and wing it to the outer edge of your eye. With your finger, pat celestial to add to shine and with the brush blend to the outer edge. Add cosmo with drama with the help of stiff eyeliner brush. Dip the brush gently in to ready to wear glitter formula dabbing it across the lash line.

These are the ultimate looks that i can always rely on and have been admired by everyone. I hope you will try these looks. I will be anxiously waiting to see what all of you will be creating following these instructions.
