10 Pro Makeup Tips for Older Women: Glow Beyond 50!

1. Always Start With Hydrated Skin

Skin produces less sebum and retains less moisture as it ages. You may now have dry skin while having average or slightly oily skin.

2. Don't Skip Out on Primer

You want your makeup to last, like all good things. Primers can do a lot to smooth the surface of older skin so that makeup goes on better.

3. Apply Everything in Thin Layers

Always apply foundation first and use concealer sparingly to add a bit more coverage where you need it.”

4. Color Correct According to Your Concern

Color correcting not only lets you use less makeup, but it also helps get rid of redness, darkness, and more for a more even skin tone and better results. 

5. Choose a Moisture-Packed Under-Eye Concealer

One of the first areas of the face to show signs of aging are the eyes—from puffiness and dark circles to crow’s feet.

6. Blend It to Perfection

Just like your eye makeup, blending your concealer using the right tools will help create a flawless finish.

7. Opt for Liquid Foundations

I recommend a creamy foundation formula for mature skin and to avoid powders.

8. Go For a Slightly Warmer Foundation Tone

We're constantly urged to choose a foundation shade closest to our natural skin tone.

9. Set With a Fine Powder

To set your makeup, you can use a fine powder to make it last longer. I suggest the gold standard MAKE UP FOR EVER Ultra HD Microfinishing Loose Powder.

10. Trade Your Powder Blush for a Radiance-Boosting One

As you get older, makeup like highlighters and blush can be lifesavers for your face because they quickly add warmth and radiance.
